    I wanted to get a high end pipe. So I was in a pipe shop shopping around and got this for $125. The tobacco chamber is huge. This pipe is beautiful and my poor photos don't do it justice. This pipe looked and felt as good as other pipes at several times the money.

    It's not easy being green (with envy). Nice choice!

    Enjoy it. Beautiful looking piece. I'm just getting comfortable with a pipe that has a very large bowl and it certainly has it's advantages sometimes.

    I am not an expert of pipe grain. I got lucky as this pipe has a lot going on as far as grain goes.
    This pipe put me in shock when I saw it and even more so when I saw the low price. The store has a good selection so I could compare price and brands.

    I believe the burl look on top is simulated. Looks good though real or not.
