After my travails with the first two Peterson Professors (the crappy Heritage finish on the first one and the small fissure on the second; was able to get complete refunds on both including all shipping) I'd pretty much given up on acquiring one, when this one caught my eye on the bay. I debated on waiting out the bidding but finally decided to pay the seller's "buy it now" price which I thought was a little high but not terribly excessive; it is a brand-new pipe after all, and I really didn't want to let it get away. It's in the dark finish but one of the lighter-toned ones I've seen, and nicely grained; I'm really quite pleased. Have the perfect baccy for it but am battling a nasty cold right now so it'll be a while before I can take it out on its maiden smoke. Occasionally a plan really does come together...
