    I have been smoking Meers exclusively (2 I have) and another 2 (larger and bigger bowl) are on order.

    Now I am serously considering getting me a Briar! ;) Here are the ones I have been oogling:

    I like the second and third pipes. They look very nice.

    Don't look at the last one for too long or you won't be able to see colors for the rest of the day.

    The day will come when I'll get me a cob! :) Here in Sweden you can only get them at gas-stations and small
    tobacco/candy shops.

    Some people here on PSF warned me for cobs - others recommend them warmly. For a newbie it's kind'a hard to figure out what to do... ;)

    I really like that third pipe. Large bowl, nice color, and the lines are very fluid. Danish?

    Really?? :) How much is it? Nevermind - a fair guess is that it's at least 50% cheaper (and
    better quality) than here... (the cursed land where a 50 gram pouch of tobacco is arund$30...).
    I'll send you a PM! THX! :)

    90% candy and 10% tobacco and other stuff. Scandinavia is world-champion when it comes to candy and icecream.
    Here in Gothenburg you NEVER have to walk more than 200 meters to the next candyshop LOL! And the 'range' / selection...IS INSANE! (You have to see it to believe it) ;)

    And there is no special tax for candy - so the 25% VAT is all! (with tobacco and pipes it's a different story altogether... :( - as I mentioned earlier: A 50 grams tin of an average-decent pipe tobacco is $30 - $40).

    For a fraction of that amount you can stuff yourself with candy until bursting! :)

    I really dunno what they are thinking... Smoking a couple of puffs is very, very bad. Stuffing yourself + kids with candy and ice cream = No problem! ;)

    1st and last are my favs.

    Id rock that last one if its a good smoker.

    I am also thinking I may have to try this whole "cob" thing.... Pay day is monday and I need to get:
    Mason Jars, pipe cleaners, couple more cheap lighters, and I'm gonna try and hit the House of Calabash and see what all the fuss is about....

    twice a month I have 25.00 to spend on pipe stuff, so if I can make it all stretch I may be cobbing by next week...
