Happened again. Opened ebay just to take a look and didn't get more than a few listings down before finding, and bidding, on a Charatan. Bet it smokes nice and since I won it the price was definitely right but damn if I'm not doing a bad job at paring down. Maybe I'll list some things here.

Just scored an old Briarcraft Smokemaster
on ebay
can't expect too much for 8 bucks but looks like a good one to fix up

Not a purchase, but obtained this immaculate Grabow Viscount in trade from @Kevin Keith. In incredible shape, with a generous bowl. Looking forward to giving it a try!

And it only took it a week and a day to get there! lol. I think those double carved pipes are my favorites as far as looks go.

I love them too. I don't think I've ever seen one like that, with the lighter finish. All the ones I see around (and have) are always dark.

The double carved is a rockin' finish.

Well, Mike, I liked looking at yours so much I picked up a similar style on the 'bay for myself. This is the darker stained Dr. Grabow 'Starfire' version, but I like it the same. Probably needs a good buffing, but I'm looking forward to putting some smoke through it.
