Like I needed it
« on: June 12, 2017, 05:19:17 PM »


So, I was on ebay looking for something else and then I looked at pipes -- Charatan and then GBD.  There were no Charatan that caught my eye.  Shouldn't have looked at the GBD pipes.  This one had an hour left and no bids.  I entered the starting bid of $16.  s/h was 4.26.  So I got it. It was probably a $15 pipe back in the 60-70's.

I own its twin.  It's a nice, light, little Prince with a decent little pot bowl.  Now I've got a pair.

It is in the Granatan finish.  That finish that is part full grain in panels and the rest is rusticated.  It is novel and I like it.  It was an intermediate grade back in the day.  The bottom of the line is the Rock Root which is a finish I like even better. 

The rim could use some help but it looks otherwise sound.

Here is its twin.  You can see the smooth panels I was talking about better.

Ken your new pipes are likely to start another PAD attack here. Very nice.

Now don't go blaming me.  I am probably in your wife's dog house already -- keeping you company with too many pipes.   :-[

Yeah, but there's no place for the cellar or the pipes.(I'm a rotund person.)

"Too many" is a relative term of measurement. However I am afraid your good character has already been maligned as I explained how 80 pipes is NOT enough for proper rotation and how brave you are in fulfilling your "needs".

Well, it arrived and what I saw in the picture is accurate.  Somebody overbuffed it.   That won't make it a bad smoker and it's still a decent buy. 

Oh, said the model was a Granatan...WRONG.  It is the  Tapestry.
