I checked on Ser Jacopos last night and was shocked.

I suspect that the hidden, unacknowledged inflation we've been coping with for years is showing up where you'd expect it -- in places like that.

"expensive" is a relative term.

though "insane" is less so ;-) ;-)

Maenz has been really hot stuff lately. I've been looking for one since a very respected pipemaker recommended his work to me, but I haven't seen one for less than 1K. Way out of my budget.

Thanks!

While I'd bet mine smoke just as well they certainly aren't as purty. Very Happy

Danish? Freehand? OK, that is a nice pipe. And he may be able to do classic shapes that require more discipline. But, don't sell yourself short. You and those who we know here can do a billiard that doesn't take back seat to anyone. The only thing a lauded craftsman at Charatan or such may be superior at is speed.

10% wood
20% crafting
70% hype

 Exactly, I would rather have a "local" craftsmans pipe over the inflated values that I see.

I saw a Stanwell POY that looked a lot like that. $150 or so.

A couple years ago, Cooper had a really nice Manz that sold for about $400. Now...

Betcha it doesn't smoke any better than the Bentley Former's Design Bulldog that I got for $59 or a host of other pipes that many other members paid a lot less for. It's a nice looking pipe but I've seen a lot made by some of the craftsmen that are BoB members that look as good and some even better and a good many cost less than 10% of what someone paid for that pipe.JMO
