    Alright guys, the last contest we had with Grabows was a lot of fun. I'd like to get some thoughts on what pipe is next. Keep in mind we want anyone to be able to join in so we need a reasonably inexpensive and fairly easy to find pipe brand. Please let me know your Suggestions.

    You could go by country and say you're not allowed to spend more than $20 + shipping. Would make it interesting, some people find incredible deals.

    Peterson?

    The fact it would motivate me to get started on mine is purely coincidental...

    First, thank you for bringing this up again. The last one was a hoot.i like the idea of a modest price cap verses a brand restriction. Alternatively maybe have it be for a particular style of pipe. Cobs, bent billiards, etc.

    Any pipe, less than 15 bucks. Post before and after and if possible, in between pictures.

    I really enjoyed the last one. Oh, no need to buy a pipe for the contest, IMO, IF you can document the original price. For example, I am strapped for buying right now, but I have plenty of estate pipes (inexpensive purchases) to restore yet. I always save the cost to me, just for my own reference.

    Going on shape with a price cap is a good idea
