Stunning blast on the Sav and love the classic shape of the Pete. Looking forward to seeing them in action!

I had the highest bid until the final 10 seconds at which point another bidder outbid me by 10 bucks. I have no regrets because it left me with the money to buy a new greatline from Mike Gluker at Briar Blues but it pretty much quenched my interest in eBay pipe auctions.
I also feel the same way a lot of the time. Watching the competitive bidding is almost embarrassing at times. For example, I logged on and clicked on ending soon to see what was going on and where, and took a screenshot. I can buy those at the shop down the street for $4-$4.50/stick. Why would I buy short filler cigars for $6 or more? People are ridiculous.
Then I saw the same thing with a $10 MSRP tin go for $30 that I can grab down the street for $8-$9.

There's a 50g tin of Dunhill Night Cap going for over $24 on cbid, with 3 days left.

Bidding wars are fun to watch, but I'm not participating.

I just nabbed this black and white 404 for stupid cheap. Some guy hit me at 10 sec and I hit back at 5 sec and got it for $32. I patiently waited 4 days on this thing and wasn't about to let it go. That's a nice add-on shipping saver to go with the pile of Diesel replenishment that it'll come with on Friday. They're going for $110, so I'm happy.

Looks like everyone is doing nice work lately. Just awesome to see all the new pipes and tobacco rolling through this thread. I’d say keep it up, but I know that none of us need encouragement!

It gives the panels a handmade beauty that in places resembles hammered metal.

This is the third great line I've acquired in the past year. I never appreciated these behemoths before. Now I see them as the happy union of a special piece of briar and the refined skills of a senior pipe carver. Despite their imposing weight, these great line dublins clench surprisingly well. Because of the full bend, this one balances like a much lighter pipe. It also smoke beautifully.

That pipe is the bees knees right there.
