    So, a relative of mine told me that if I get at least a 3.0 this semester in college, he would buy me any pipe I want $100 or less. I'm having problems deciding what I want. I was hoping for some good suggestions from the forum. I'm a fan of pretty much anything as far as pipes go. Let me see what you got!:bing:

    My vote would be a nice Savielle.

    well for $100 there is a very large variety of pipes.
    Peterson, Nording, Stanwell, Savinelli, Bjarne, Falcon. Just to name a few.
    It's a little ridiculous for you to ask us to mention model numbers and pictures when your description of what you're after is " I'm a fan of pretty much anything as far as pipes go"
    You should at least give some kind of an idea to whether you want a straight or bent, smooth/rustic.
    There are endless options out there for pipes under $100.
    check out P&Cs, cupojoes, and 4noggins.

    Looking for a good bent rusticated billiard. I'd like a full bend but it's not necessary.

    Savinelli 614 Roma Lucite would fit that bill pretty well.

    I picked mine up for around the $90 from a local B&M, pretty sure you could snag it online for somewhere around the $70 mark.

    Yeah I would go for the Savinelli 614 as well. Beautiful look and a nice smoke.

    Ah Nate, pipe models are so personal that in reality we can point you to a maker, then you have to drive. Sorry Man, and congrats.

    One of these for 66 bucks [ I got one for Christmass and it's killer ] Any Savinelli is good
    http://www.smokingpipes.com/pipes/new/savinelli/moreinfo.cfm?product_id=122124

    and with the left over money either get 3 tins tobacco or bulk tobaccos........... or

    Bag the Pipe above and bag this Medico [ which are made by Kaywoodie ] and get a tin of OGS

    http://wvsmokeshop.com/medicocavalierb.aspx
    http://wvsmokeshop.com/orlikpipetobacco.aspx

    Or ... buy one pipe for a hundred dollars that probably wont smoke better than the two above and you wont have the tobacco as well .

    No joke. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, this pipe could double as a weapon (it's hefty).

    My recommendations is to go to a B&M if you can and hold a bunch of them to get a feel. Then take a look at the aesthetics of the pipe. Find what appeals to you. Then pick one that has been suggested above. Any of them are great!
    Pipes and tobacco are all about personal taste. One might like bulldogs, one may like apples, one may like calabashes or whatever. The point is the aesthetics are secondary to the pipe's quality and its ability to provide you with an enjoyable experience with a particular tobacco.
    A cob can fit that requirement just as easy as a $1000 Dunhill.

    So I stumbled on this thread and want to know

    1. Did you get the 3.0?
    2. If yes to #1, what pipe did you get?
    3. If yes to #1 and given #2, how does it smoke?
    4. Did you have a similar deal for this semester?

    I did get the 3.0. I ordered a custom bent billiard from a guy on Facebook under the name Christopher Pipes. Beautiful pipe. Best of all it was 90 bucks shipped to me. I graduated this past August and received a smooth peterson system straight billiard. Fantastic smoker and beautiful grain.

    Sounds excellent on all counts. Congrats on graduating and the GPA, etc. I have wondered how well the straight systems worked...

    Thanks very much. You're too kind. The straight system is fantastic. It's a smaller bowl, so it's exclusively used for flakes. I highly recommend it. You can't go wrong with any of the peterson systems
