    Interesting Completed Ebay Auctions - British Pipes

    Merchant Service I picked this one up for $15. Not really a common shape for them or finish. I wasn't going to let a band and non original stem stop me. Their stems didn't have stamps anyway.

    Who Remembers Smoking Cars?

    Did You Like Burley From The Start?

    I did not like them in the beginning, but then again I dont think I could have picked out what flavor i was tasting that I didnt like. I like them now. Its kind of like the bitter/sweet thing with beer, I think burley has that, which may be acquired for some.

    Barlow & Dorr Pipes

    I havent bought from them, but they do sell on ebay as well so maybe check the reviews there. What they sell looks pretty solid, not made of plastic type pipes.

    Custom-Bilt and Custom Bilt Stem Styles?

    Shank size I think quite a bit. 3/4" and up usually have saddle stems and under that often goes to tapered.

    Breaking In A New Pipe - With Water?

    Peterson's 1905 catalog recommends running water through a new pipe before smoking it, or to put water in the bowl and let it sit an hour, then dump out and smoke the pipe for breaking in.
