    I sent an email to Dr. Grabow asking about their warehoused CDL pipes. Got this response back. Seems Dr. Grabow has found a new market for the CDL that failed here in the U.S. They have also jacked the price up from $2.00 or $3.00 to $15.00 if you want to buy one from them. Guess I will just keep my two and call it good.

    We do have some CDL pipes here, however we do not have nearly as many as we did because we have developed an international market in Korea. We would be glad to sell you some of what is left, but I would encourage you to get them now because once they are gone they are gone. If you are interested in purchasing one or more, you may do so for $15.00 including postage and handling.
    If you would like to make a purchase, please send us a check or money order for $15.00/pipe and we will gladly fill your order.

    Please send your order and a note as to what you want to:

    That is kind of surprising, but looking at some of the new stuff coming from Japan, I guess it shouldn't be.

    Well....even for $15 shipped...that's still not a bad deal (for a new pipe with a briar bowl). That's only ~1/2 the price of most of their other pipes. I have to admit that I was at a loss as to why they were giving them away for $2-3. They could have EASILY gotten $15 for them if they sent them out to distributors.

    Yeah that aggravates me. I'm sure there would be a market here for those pipes. Especially if it was NOS.
