G'day old farts, I've been buying some modestly-priced briar pipes recently (I now own three). Two have been Savinelli brand and all have all been in the $80-range (or under). While browsing the online shops, I've noticed pipes can get very expensive, and the average price is probably well over $80. Should I be considering investing in a more expensive pipe ($200+)? Would I really notice any difference in the smoking, or are the ones I'm buying going to be fine? I guess what I'm asking, is whether all those extra dollars actually improves the smoking of the pipe noticeably, or is it mostly going into aesthetics, custom workmanship, etc. P.S. while I'm at it, does anyone know of any Latvian-made pipes? I found one guy on Google - Sergey someone, but can't see where to buy his pipes (save emailing him). I also saw that Peterson brand pipes have a bit of Latvian history. Thanks.
