    I am in the throes of a major PAD attack. I picked up another Pre Trans Barling. This is my first blasted one and it is a deep ring grain one. The pipe is nice group 5 and should make for a good flake pipe.

    Jesse, you know you wanted some competition for your prized Barlings.

    I stole this one I believe, as I paid 140.00 delivered for it.

    Buddy, you are screwed. No nicer pipes on the planet, IMHO.

    Looks like a real winner, Cigr.

    It'll be interesting to see whether the well-seasoned old Britwood starts spoiling you for the newer
    (= under 10 years) ones.

    It's happened to others, you know . . .

    Oh oh I know that seller, forgot his ebay name. He runs a pipe club as well. Nice find

    Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” One of the reasons behind this statement is that pipe smoking is meant to be a slow leisurely activity. It takes patience to smoke a pipe. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, there is a certain amount of technique to smoking a pipe. Where cigars and cigarettes can just be picked up, lit and puffed on, pipes require the development of a technique in order to get the best smoking experience.

    Nice find, nice pipe, nice price. Damn your eyes!

    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.

    I believe that's from Nathan at VikingClubPipes.com.
    Harris, you don't have to reveal your secret fishing hole location if you don't want to, but you can tell us whether or not I'm wrong...
    Either way Nathan has some goodies...

    It was Nathan, I was looking at that pipe last week. I check out his website every couple of weeks.

    Thanks for the nice comments guys.

    billkay,

    It'll be interesting to see whether the well-seasoned old Britwood starts spoiling you for the newer
    (= under 10 years) ones.

    I had my stage of new and newer estate British pipes. Dunhill(new and used), Ferndown(new) Ashton(new) Lane Era Charatans)Gbd(estate),Sasieni(estate) Willmer(estate),Upshall(estate). Of all of those I have one each of Willmer, Upshall and Lane era Charatan left. So far I like how these Barlings smoke better than the others mentioned.

    I had forgotten about vikingclubpipes. I used to look at them often, and Nathan did me right on this Barling, nice guy.
