Eff me, with the box, pipe sock and everything? I've never found THAT nice of a pipe at a junk/antique store! I'm happy to find them not be Grabows, burnt-out, bitten-through and not $50 - $100. Laughing

I have to ask: how much?

Part of me hopes it's filled with 1,000 Lakeland Grannies ghosting it until the end of time, but that'd be evil. Laughing Since you're a Brother, I hope it's as sweet and clean smoking as it looks! cheers

One note: On more than one occasion I've discovered some mutant, in some pipes' pasts, decided something other than tobacco was going to be smoked in them. Suddenly, they end up as "donations" to thrift joints or sold in antique stores. It's a shame. Yes, it is fixable with treatment, but with shipping and the treatment cost itself, a budget pipe can turn into an investment pretty quickly. I usually give those away to my friends who partake in such activities to do with as they wish.

I now bring a lighter with me into stores and "flame test" the tobacco chambers of those kind of estate pipes before I buy them. I invert the pipe, hold a flame to the inside of the bowl for a count of three, and smell. Lakelands I will take on, but if it smells skunky, I pass. I've only had one store personnel object to this test, but when I explained why, they understood. I always ask first, though. No sense in presumption making enemies.

Well, it depends on if eyes are watching, or not. I'm not above blazing trails, as I trust myself enough not to crap on the floor, but choosing doing so in front of the host makes it harder to blame the mess on someone else, at the very least.
