I walked the show in Columbus with Puff and mentioned to him that I wanted a large pipe. He was very helpful in showing pipes that were beautiful and out of my price range. While we were all sitting around the unofficial PSF table, I mentioned to him that I had seen a large estate pipe at a local shop, but do to the fact the carver was unknown, I had left it at the shop. He then explained to me what the important things to look at were and if they were all there, it was a good buy. Well, I innocently went back to that shop tonight with a friend of mine. It is his birthday this week so I was going to get him a tin of tobacco, his choice. Unfortunately for my wallet, I noticed that the pipe was still there. Good thing it wont be there to temp me next time. :whistle: Smokes great too!
