    Just as the title says. I've been eyeing this bad boy since last week and finally got the funds (and stones) to pull the trigger. Its officially the highest end smoking implement I've ever bought. I remember saying when I first started posting here that I couldn't ever see myself spending more than a hundred bucks on a pipe. Well, look what you guys made me do. ;)

    Nothing says 'I am a man' like a bulldog. (Except maybe descended testicles.) You got a winner, Deck. Congratulations!

    Congrats on the purchase. The waiting for it to come in the mail is the worst. Let us know how it smokes. I am sure it will be awesome. I have only heard good things about their pipes.

    Thanks, guys. It should arrive on my last day of finals so I'll probably be too tired to smoke it at first, but it will be a nice light at the end of the tunnel.

    I approve. I had my eye on that one a few weeks back, but bought a Winslow Crown Viking bulldog instead. You win this time...

    Just got it. First things I notice is that it feels much more solid than my other pipes, its bigger than I had realized, the texture is far more interesting in person, and its purdy. But now I'm goin to bed. Its been a marathon.

    I'll tell y'all how it smokes tomorrow.

    *edit: Feels great in the hand too.

    Hi All,

    and now we're all feeling really guilty for forcing you to do it!

    Seriously - it's a lovely pipe and I wish you many happy years with it!

    Best as ever
