@bluegrassbrian Brian no point going for the Butera estates when you can ask Mike to make one for you. His waiting time is a bit longer but the wait is worth it. SPC does seem to overprice Dunhills and other marques, but hey thats the price of instant gratification. I have a lot of estates lying around with a few pipe restorers and friends, so my main focus would be to get them restored. I'll be putting some for sale in 2017.
@ash, would be a sweet cutty, Ryan makes a mean pipe
@ashdigger Tim, that's a fantastic cute little tomato !!
@joseph Will do, it's a Butera/Bekler Meer Cutty. I still can't afford Mike's Smooths/Sandblasts lol. Maybe when I finally move to Canada I'll request a smooth Lovat or a Canadian from him. I cant wait to show you guys the Authors I'll be getting from Adam though.
I kept telling myself I didn't need another pipe, or any more tobacco after accidentally buying 10 tins of Black House in October, instead of the 5 that I intended to purchase. My finger slipped. Honest. :twisted:
But I did wind up with a holiday bonus from my company's owners, and got lucky in the prize drawing at our holiday dinner, so when P&C sent me one of those Tuesday e-mails, I succumbed.
One Big Ben Bora 575 (horn shape) in tan finish, a 1.5# box of Luxury Bullseye Flake (still on sale), and a 1# bag of 1-Q (also still on sale, or back on sale) to pad out my cellar, since I've still got empty Mason jars left. And as a bonus, they added in a Forseti Natural bent billiard. Not a bad haul for someone still learning his way around factory pipes. :D
