I bought this one a few weeks ago, and it is very well made, and with high quality (Mimmo) briar. The pipe was made to my specs and cost me a whopping $70. The maker does it as a hobby, and obviously has no interest in making money on them. I stumbled on his site thru another forum and am passing it on just as another source for a low priced hand made pipe. I have no connection to the maker other than having bought one pipe, and quickly ordered a second.
