I am a collector/smoker who has decided to thin the herd on my vintage pipes. There will be some rarer pieces as I am keeping only my favorite shapes. My collection of these fine old pipes is a large one and my main buying criteria was to obtain a rotation of what Fred Hanna terms “magic pipes” Those pipes that repeatedly produce an exceptional tasting, cool and dry smoke. All have been previously smoked but have been kept in good condition with no damages. The exception to this will be if the listing is one of my high grade rare Comoy's which are in museum quality condition and never smoked by me. For all other pipes I will describe any defects to the best of my ability. If I unintentionally miss a defect it will be rectified to your satisfaction. I want you to be 100% thrilled with the pipe and if your not I will take it back NO QUESTIONS ASKED. I am a collector not a dealer and I understand the importance of COMPLETE satisfaction.
