Looking for some advice on Pokers

I'm looking to add a poker to my collection in the near future, I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations in this regard? Ideally I'm looking for something rustic and chunky with a relatively short stem. Probably in the range of £30-50.

Please bare in mind I'm in the UK and am, due to my current location, bound to online sellers who ship UK wide.

Any thoughts from you fine fellows? Thanks in advance ^_^

There is a grumpy old guy on the forum who makes some short stem pokers in that price range. His name is DGErwin11 and he has a Etsy store here http://www.etsy.com/shop/cobcobbler He can custom make stuff to, so if you don't see what you want, ask him about it. Yes, Doug will pay me a commission if you buy one (not really, I wish :D)

Have you checked smoke-king.co.uk? smoke1.co.uk has a lot of pipes in your price range, but I did not see a poker. You might call these stores and check.

Have you had a look at Moretti pipes? I've lately seen a nice poker on ebay in that price range, maybe a bit more expensive.

I'm not at my computer so can't easily look up their line, but have you checked Invicta? Some great pipes at very adorable prices, and right there in the UK. There's another domestic (for you) carver that others have spoken about, but I'm blanking on the name right now.

+1 on DGE. Can't speak from experience as he won't allow me anywhere near his house, lawn, or bushes. But rumor has it that he makes a quality poker.

Thanks for the tips guys :) I'd love to chat with Old ted seeing as he lives so close my my homeland, but for some reason I'm unable to PM.

I must say, after a little reading and you tubing, I'd love to have a crack at pipe making. My dads made some really interesting numbers I his time so I'll have to quiz him next time I'm home!
