Thank you @PipeITNice, Congrats!
That’s a beauty, and I love the look of that case!
Thanks, TimI have a BBB in a near identical shape, no case though.
I saw that ad too late. Good for you.
I do wonder how affordable Barlings were, back in the days.It's painful to realize that at one time you could just walk into a shop and buy something like that at any time, innit?
Do current day new pipes still come in cases, other than meerschaums ?
Unfortunately that's lost skills.
And George, when you decide to retire your tools, will there be someone with your skills to take over ?
