Have his pipe prices gone up? I have a beautiful swept horn by him but was never out of the 3 figure arena.

Yeah I just don't understand the price. But then again, I'm a cheap bastard who beats on his pipes.

I didn't realize his pipes were that far up there...no idea where the bidding will end. It's already higher than I would have guessed.

It always depends on who's bidding. There are two very determined bidders for this pipe, one of whom has 0 wins. It may go higher and it may not.

This is the fine arts stratosphere of pipes. If I had that kind of wealth, I might fall into that. But since I don't, I can feel a little smug having a really exquisite smoke from time to time in my Kaywoodie Drinkless. Still, it's fascinating to see these rarified pipes and their prices, like attending the classic car auctions where the prices come unhitched from the visible values of the cars.

There are a lot of things I don't understand, and stratospheric pipe prices are one of them.
