    I picked up a couple of GBD estates last week. I have never tried them before, that and the price is what made me give in and get them.

    First up is this 1353 shape, I would guess it is in the saucer family, any one knowing more feel free to share. It smokes very nice and only needed a minimum of cleaning up. Paid $15

    Next is a Pot shape marked Century & 9493. I have never tried a Pot shape before. This smokes GREAT! I don't know if it's due to the shape or the fact that it is has a very open draw. I don't know what the average airway size is but I am able to pass a 5/32 drill bit through it with ease. This one was a bit gunky and required a good cleaning and reaming. Very happy with both but I love this one. Price $10

    Lovem...really like GBD's

    The most important things in life are good friends and a good bullpen...not necessarily in that order

    I love both of those, particuarly that wide stem on the Dublin Apple (see below).

    1353 is a "Dublin Apple" and 9343 is indeed a "Pot".

    Both very nice!

    I have the first pipe! I like all three of my GBD's. Nice catch!
