PAD stuck me like bolt of lightning tonight, I had been looking at Baki meers for a while but they are a bit out of my price range not to mention FL residence have to pay sales tax on top of that, just happened to go on ebay and typed "Baki meerschaum" in the search window and there it was a estate Baki in the exact style I wanted at a buy it now price with free shipping (from France) so I am the proud owner of a cherrywood silver mount Cumberland Baki, I didn't even see it coming ...
Well, this arrived yesterday. A hand carve from Cooper Pipes. There are so many good carvers out there that I'm afraid I've been like a pig at the trough lately. I haven't posted all the photos of everything I've purchased lately due to PAD Shame!
So I ended up nurturing my PAD and limited budget with a new estate pipe off eBay. Only one picture of it, so it's a slight gamble, but I've been looking for something this shape for a while now, so I'm happy even if it will require some TLC before I can enjoy it, and it's my first Savinelli too.
Savinelli Punto Oro 904 (at least I think it's a 904, judging from the shape)
Here's a pic of this week's haul.
Apart from the trade stuff I listed yesterday, there's a 1.5 lb box of PS LBF (I'm really digging this one) and then 4oz of the PSF Nutty Professor blend from 4noggins. Finally, a tin of Frog Morton Cellar. The cellar cupboard is getting full.
