    Interesting Completed Ebay Auctions - British Pipes

    Nor does the text, Rodrigo is getting more sloppy by the week. I do not mind one bit, as longs as he keeps selling good quality pipes. Which he always does and he is easy to deal with. Barling's straight grain are relatively rare and this one looks to be in fine condition.

    Not an outrageous amount is imho an understatement . I think of it as a steal , despite the somewhat out of round rim. There are no signs of burned briar , the exterior looks to be in fine condition accommodated with its original stem. How often does a magnum Barling's show up anyway ? I now...

    Depends on how you define freeshape. Looks like a lovat with a huge bowl, needed quite some tlc. Grain is super.

    If memory serves me correctly ( but I need to dig in my Charatan trunk ) I have a large Charatan Super billiard with a twin bore stem.

    Interesting Completed Ebay Auctions - British Pipes

    Hello Kottan, Thank you for the advice ! There are several online retailers who ship abroad ( discretely ), like Herr Fleischmacher from Hamburg. I visited the shop once and purchased some cans of really old F&T Wingate Mixture. It still has some cigar leaf in it and is delicious . Is a bogey...

    On my behalf :) Thank you Kottan , when al this misery is behind us I will pay a visit to PH in Köln. The HU tobaccos peaked my interest , they are supposed to be very agreeable.

    Hello Kottan, By no means did I take offence , we are solely amongst friends here :) Also I do not quite understand your meaning, since I did not buy this poor, abused pipe. I purchased a pipe from this seller, it is quite some time ago. It was a beautiful Ashton. The shape was rare , the pipe...

    I was close, so close and I'm pleased you won it Jesse and not some "trust fund baby " . It is weird and I like weird stuff. Rodrigo is a stand up guy and I purchased quite some nice pipes from him. Yes, he is sloppy and this pillar of his charm sometimes opens up a wide window of opportunity .

    Hello Jesse, So it was you who snatched this darn interesting pipe from right under my nose :) I congratulate you , hope my max. bid gave you a start and ample time to respond, I always place my bid in the last three seconds. It is much to my liking and apparently my interpretation of the...

    Hello Kottan, Yes, it was a good show and if you study the pipe before it was repaired I think you understand my worries . I suspect this seller to refurb the pipes he sells himself ; I would not touch this one with a barge pole, no matter how rare and how much I like the shape. I am looking out...
