Hmmm ..................

what would a fella trade for a pipe such as that

all you got to do is say the word and i'll hit that blue button

I am open to trades of all sorts. My only real wants are that it must have a vulcanite bit and be unfiltered. I tend to like French, American, English makers.
What shapes are you liking these days? I have a few vulcanite, unfiltered pipes around here collecting dust.
Billiards, Apples, Princes, Bulldogs, Bent, Straight. I have been tending away from gigantic bowls, favoring the standard 3/4 - 7/8" drilling.

If your only issue is the p-lip then you could always send it off to a place like briarville and have a regular stem done for not a ton of coin
Yeah, it's more than just the Pee-lip. I have a tendency to dump ash, and when you do that with a well pipe it always ends badly. It's actually the main reason I rarely smoke my Uhle's well pipe, as it has the exact same problem. If it were one of Pete's straight pipes like an Irish Army, then I'd consider getting a fishtail made for it.
Guys, if you haven't yet, try shoving a little wad of cotton in the well. Doesn't obstruct the draught and will last several bowls while keeping the well dry. I don't even get residue or any build up, just twist a pipe cleaner down there and it comes out.

If you still don't agree with it I might have some things for trade. Although I already have two, from you, what's wrong with us?

That's a great idea. Still think I want to move it on though. No idea what's wrong with us.. my wife keeps asking me that same question and I always just shrug ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Is the stem acrylic or vulcanite?

That is a good idea. I'd heard it before but I forgot about it.

It looks and feels like Acrylic to me. The P-lip portion is definitely different than the vulcanite ones I've had too. If you have children, hide their eyes..

On the Grabow site or somewhere else? I've been doing it for years but wasn't sure if anyone else does. It just so much less work to clean them that way, basically none where the well is concerned and much less everywhere else.

I really can't remember where I heard that tip. Probably from you somewhere along the line. 8-)
