Re: Latest Pipe Acquisition 2019

Hopefully this is my last new pipe.... getting worse then my gun collection. https://i.ibb.co/SxYNx2F/20190112-120432.jpg Nice Jobey! Filtered? French? Yes to both. The camera didn't capture the color very well, it's quite light, almost virginia tobacco and cork colored. Quite nice actually.
