I get a real kick out of the descriptions sometimes. It's really nothing more than a block of briar that needs to be carved, but look at the description.

It made me laugh this morning, but is way over priced.

Then again, am I missing something?

Man that is a little excessive, but I think the long title descriptions are for searches such as google

Might be a great piece of briar...certainly dry enough if the description/timeline is accurate!

...for about $25 less, anyway. Cool ...or is it some unique holdover piece not finished at the factory?

I'm thinking it's an old version of the "carve your own pipe" kit that are still available today. Not a bad price if one wants to carve their own.

Got to love "flowery" descriptions.

I can't get on ebay from work, so sometimes, when I am bored, I poke around etsy. I am constantly amazed to see what someone will pay for a piece of garbage with a clever name.

Looks like a great deal for people with a lot of dollars and no sense.
