    Sooo,

    I am trying to save up for a pipe. Buuut, I saw this on ebay and it was just so reasonable. I just won it and will post pics as I get them. I have seen some go cheaper, but not by enough to give me pause and new they are ridiculous.

    Hopefully this link works:

    Beautiful pipe. $208 is a bit steep, but you get what you pay for. PAD strikes again!

    I've bought from tomcat-books. No issues: photos were accurate and the product was well packaged. Timely delivery as well.

    Well I am not generally a fan of Petes, but that one is a bit of a stunner. Probably because it is so unPete-like! Congratulations.

    I just looked at that pipe a few hours ago, I'd say you got a great deal being that it's a GOLD spigot, congrats.

    That is cheap, great steal!

    I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

    "we shall have to share pipes, as good friends must at a pinch'....'I keep a treasure or two near my skin, as precious as rings to me. Here's one: my old wooden pipe. And here's another an unused one...He held up a small pipe with a wide flattened bowl, and handed it to Gimli. 'Does that settle the score between us', said Merry. 'Most noble hobbit, it leaves me deep in your debt."

    Great pipe!

    See I can't buy a pipe that pretty...it would make all my other girls feel ugly and insecure. Congratulations!

    I was one of the guys that bid against you on that one! Haha. I've been watching it since they put it up but once it hit the 200 mark it got a bit rich for my blood. Glad to hear that you got it!

    That is a beautiful looking pipe. The first pipes I ever bought were Peterson's, about 40 years ago.

    Good luck with it.

    Congrats on a wonderful Peterson at a GREAT price.

    FWIW though, and not to rain on your parade, that pipe has been smoked a time or three or ten from what I see in the pictures. Those gold-mounted guys do NOT have precarbed bowls but rather an orange-ish stain inside the bowl.
