Been a little while since I've posted on the forums here, but I'm still smoking and collecting. Just havent had much of a chance to be online out taking advantage of the summer. While out and about yesterday I passed by an antique store not too far from me that I havent had a chance to look around in for a few years. Found this strange little guy in there, it was just too interesting for me to pass up, even with the $19 price tag. Its not briar, but it is some sort of harder wood, not sure what exactly. It had a piece of copper pipe in the bowl that I took out. I saw that at first and thought maybe this was intended to smoke other kinds of things besides tobacco, but theres a definate smell of one of the old OTC blends in it. I started to clean it up but I'm not sure if I want to smoke it. I might just get a stem made for it and keep it to display.
