Very very easy to order pipes out of Italy - tax free so the prices are less than you see advertised, by a lot.
I must be doing something wrong. The conversion yesterday was 1.24. The few I checked out were slightly more via Italy vs Briar Blues, eBay (new), Smoking Pipes, etc.

Al Pascia lists tax in and tax out prices - a 220 euro pipe is 180 euroes tax out (taxes being thus 22% of the price you see).  

Take this to TabacheriaCorti, a kkkk sea rock is listed at 260 euroes tax in.  knock 57 off for tax you aren't paying.   That's 203 euroes = 250.67 USD today.  

So.  

That's about 100 bucks cheaper, by my reckoning.


(Edit I cheated my math, the pipe is actually more like 212 euroes tax out. Still, hundred cheaper than a kkkk sea rock at SP, which is 361.00)
