The pipes I like cost a little bit more than $300, therefore I would go for tobacco.

I would probably look for an estate from Lasse Skovgaard or Rad Davis and spend any change left on a tin or two of baccy.

If I couldn't find a Lasse or Davis as an estate to my liking, I would probably go with a commission from tinsky (currently have one in the works), brissett, yakslon, pietenpauw (also one in the works), or sasquatch and then spend the change on tobacco.

If I had recently obtained a few new pipes and my wife was starting to give me dirty looks, I would probably just spend it all on tobacco! Probably half on bulk stuff and half on tins.

Very Happy Laughing cheers

I can afford tobacco any time. Now a $300 pipe is another story. I've never spent over $150 for one and I've been smoking since I was 16. Pietenpauw would be my first choice. Is the check in the mail? Don't worry about shipping costs, I can scrounge up enough to cover that! Wink

Lets see considering a that pipes are similar in cost up here but our tobacco is many times more than the US i'd have to say tobacco! I might be able to get 2 pounds of tobacco with that money, but i doubt it.

I'd pick up the Peterson Army and Stanwell Vario that have beguiled me, and have $100+ left for tobacco!

Very Happy

I'd go to smokingpipes.com and buy this humble Stanwell: Hans Christian Andersen Sandblasted (III) for $125 bucks.



Then I'd buy a good $175 worth of this to smoke in it for a good while:



But, since I can afford neither at the moment, I'll just sit back and make do with what I got! cheers

I would get a pipe, like Falconer said I can always get tobacco but for me a three hundred dollar pipe would be unlike anything I already have.
