    Hi All,

    I am quite glad and a bit ecstatic to share with you my latest acquisition.. An unsmoked Peterson Pipe of the year 2014 smooth ebony with Sterling Silver band. It was sold as an estate on smokingpipes.com but in a Perfectly unsmoked condition, and at a steal price. So I had to get it
    And with it some tobacco that has long been on my wishlist, and windcaps for lunting.

    Great pipes and a good stash. I hope they lead to many pleasant times.

    Good looking setup and great tobacco choices .

    I've always loved the dress pipe look, black with metal collar. Very nice!

    You've just reminded me how much I'm anticipating a new pipe arriving tomorrow after almost a week stuck in customs (ordered from across the pond)...

    But, on a more related note, that's one nice pipe!

    Sweet pipe, and new blends to, well played Sir

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    @scrooge @pagan Thanks, guys..

    @hextor.. Yeah was quite a catch.. And actually it is stamped pipe of the year, the new ones available online are just a rendition of it with a model stamp instead..

    @averagegent Do tell what pipe is it? And did you get it?

    I love having a brand new unsmoked pipe. First, you want to just look at it and never smoke it. Then you hear the call, and it is so nice learning how the new pipe smokes, giving those first maiden smokes extra time and appreciation. Nice score, enjoy.

    Big congrats!

    Swell looking pipe, there, Ahmad. Enjoy!

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
