    So, I am really looking to buy a new Oom Paul that is between $150-$200, but cant seem to find any that really strike me. I was thinking about Brebbia's Oom Paul with a wooden cap, but just haven't pulled the trigger yet. Any other suggestions?

    SmokingPipes has a couple that appeal to me, and right in your price range. (Linked image)

    I'd like an Oom Paul but don't think I would smoke it very much given the large bowl size and it being mostly hand-held.

    Mine clench just fine.

    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 was just trying to find a link for one I have, for a Forums member who lost an Oom-Paul years ago. Though it seems to be a little hard to find, I recommend the Savinelli Hercules series Oom-Paul, designed without a filter and a good big bowl. Because of the very complete bend and moderate weight, it is an easy clencher with plenty of bowl. Apparently not as widely available as I supposed, but I am sure they are out there.

    I have scanned all the usually sites us pipe smokers go to. I'm looking for something a bit more exotic. Perhaps something old world German-esque.. even it it's not in my price range id like to look.

    Perhaps a Tyrolean pipe or a Black Forest pipe?
    Check eBay.
