    Almost 30 yrs.! Should be pretty well-rested pipes.
    I like the stems -- sort of a Danish influence.

    Judas Priest, Brad! Those are drop dead gorgeous.

    Since you told me about Bill Sargent I've been scouring Topeka for his burners and have only met two people who own a few of them. Bill's been gone for over 25 years but there's still enough folks around here who remember his tobacco shop and, more importantly, remember him as a gentleman with a wonderful sense of humor. (It's really kind of sweet watching their faces soften as they start telling stories about him and his pipes.)

    His pipes were expensive thirty years ago - 250 to 300 on average - and Bill specialized in Canadians. (They were his signature items.)

    Good on you for getting those two pipes refurb'ed by Mr. Walker. He did a swell job, so enjoy them, pal.
