    On my way to work (running behind actually) I stopped to check my mail. Hoping one of my estate ebay pipes came in. I was in luck. I threw the box on the passenger seat and headed to work. Once settled in,I tore through the box and packaging like a kid on Christmas. In the mix of shredded cardboard and crumbled news paper lay an object wrapped in bubble wrap and a good quarter mile of packing tape around that. After some cursing and almost amputating several fingers with my multi tool knife (SOG makes some damn good blades!) I finally got to the prize in the cereal box. A shiny Briarmeer De Lux pipe. It looked great, a small knick here and there, but oh so shiny to my suprise. Then I looked in the bowl. The shipper had sent along an bonus gift. Partially smoked tobaccy. I guess cleaned meant wiped the outside down with pledge or something. So, out went the tobacco and the 20 years of cake (who lets cake build up on a meer lined bowl?!?!?!?). 35 spit mositen pipe cleaners later (didn't have a shank brush on me) and a little scraping of the draft hole she was ready for her recommissioned maiden voyage.

    And to my surprise, she saile... er smoked quite smoothly. Actually just as good if not better than my BC meer lined. This beaut was .99 cents plus shipping. I'm planning on restoring it fully, but I think I'm going to keep the original color. IT might actually be my first pipe dedicated to english blends. The bowl is small so I wont overpower myself and others in the room when I get the gumption to try it. Check her out.

    Hi All,

    A very classic British looking pipe, and none the worse for that. At the price you really scored, and I'm sure with a bit of stem restoration she'll come up beautifully,
