Bill Fuererbach is selling his BM Bing. I'm not interested, but I thought someone else might be. It's not cleaned so that might keep the price down. Auction ends today.

I love the shape of a Bing but think I'd somehow snap the shank. They look fragile. Purdy pipe tho

Well, #1 it's the whole Bing Mystique. #2. Back at the old PSF, I posted pics of an old Merchant Service pipe that the Bings are based on. I took measurements for Basil and he used them in making his Bings. So his Bings are really correct. Seems like some people are aware of that. #3 That is one super sexy Cumberland stem!
