Right!? That’s more per ounce than I got my tins of Esoterica for with the last drop.$10.99/ounce = Big Nope
Good luck that the pipe looks like that upon receipt. I purchased one of the new eggs specifically because of the Italian "blue sapphire" stems. Um, not quite as the stem was mostly khaki green with a couple of blue specks if it was held up to the light. I did write, as I like MM products and have bought a number direct from them, in the hope that they would just send me a blue stem as shown on their site. However, they wanted me to send a picture of the stem ( I am not especially capable of doing that). Good customer, cheap pipe, cheaper stem and really not worth the time or effort. Seemed like a poor business decision. However, i hope yours is as nice as the picture.View attachment 196213
And a pipe as well...
For your girl or yourself?Definitely picking some up...
That’s an astute observation about the gift pricing, IMO you are likely rightThat price really shows intention. I call it gift pricing. Too expensive to buy for yourself (well for what it is) but will tempt that special someone who is buying it for someone they want to impress while not really knowing too detail about their beaus interests. The high price actually becomes a draw for two reasons. One chases us off from buying so the imaginary wife or girlfriend or boyfriend who has a cooler girlfriend then he deserves knows they're buying something new and novel for their affectionated one (since we're not paying that for that), and even the recipient doesn't really like tobacco all that much they still might feel extra loved by the extra money spent. (kind of like every time a girl has bought me a cigar cause they know I like tobacco it's always something over priced not really my style and still one of the best cigars I smoked because despite the fact I try to hide it I am a sentimental bastard.
Did you see the price of the pipe?That price really shows intention.
Now you went and made me go look it up...Did you see the price of the pipe?
Yep, the 2015 and 2018 were $50.I think the last round of reverse calabash cobs were $50ish
