Found a pipe at lepipe. Anyone ever purchase through them? I can't find any feedback or forum chatter about them.

Yes, a couple times and I plan on buying from them again. Good selection and decent prices.

Your welcome. BTW the first order I choose DHL Express and the pipe arrived within 3 days. The second order I choose Standard Worldwide delivery -by mistake- and it took nearly 3 weeks to arrive. FYI :puffy:

They always have some good stuff on hand,

new arrival updates seem far and few between though...

:puffy:

I bought a nice Spanu from them. I got a new customer discount too.

Overall I would rate may shopping experience with the vendor as a 'smiley face'

Woah! That Becker is awesome. It's interesting to see the pipe gene flow at work in Italy. Add a green stain and I would probably mistake that for a Gamboni!

yes,

it is interesting.
Gian was pretty close with Paolo, and also made pipes for the Massimo Musicò imprint Foundation,

here he is at the Musicò shop:
The style is very different from the Pesaro style, or the Como, Cucciago, Varese styles for that matter,

and I could only attempt to describe the style as Nuovo Roma or something along those lines,

it is very distinctive.
Gamboni's pipedia page was recently updated,

good info there:

Bisgaard had a recent update featuring some of the last pipes that he made for 2015,

they all sold out in a week!

Interesting perspective.

I love the work of Gamboni.
The pipes are nice, but you gotta love his sock! :rofl:
Il Duca Morta in the bag thanks to you all. Briar and I are having a bit of a failure to communicate ever since I discovered meerschaum and I'm excited to hear what bog oak has to say.
Great tip Rogers about DHL. The difference in shipping between tortoise and hare mode was less than 1 euro, but I had to dig to find the option.
Edited to add a thank you to SPC for encouraging me to explore the wild world of international vendors!
