THIS IS A (10)TEN-DAY(10), , AND INTERNATIONAL COLLECTIBLE BRIAR PIPE sale.PLEASE CLICK HERE TO VIEW ALL OF THE OTHER BEAUTIFUL, NEW, OR FULLY RESTORED AND RECONDITIONED HIGH GRADE COLLECTIBLE PIPES THAT I HAVE LISTED FOR sale THIS WEEK ON !
You are offerding on a barely formerly enjoyed condition smooth cross grain "Cobra" shaped pipe that was hand crafted by Kazuhiro Fukuda of the Tsuge Pipe Company, of Japan, in 2003. This was the 58th "Ikebana" pipe that he had crafted in that year. Mr. Fukuda crafts about 300 of these "Ikebana" series pipes per year. This pipe is stamped as a grade "BC".
The shape is stunning. The display of cross grain on the sides of the bowl is only surpassed by the magnificent display of birds eye grain on the front of the bowl and the bottom of the shank. The overall balance feels perfect. The hand feel is very comfortable.The draft is nice and easy. A pipe cleaner will not pass to the bottom of the bowl without removing the stem, but since this is a reenforced mounting on thick briar, this will not prove to be a problem.
Here are the pipe’s dimensions: The overall length is about 4.85”. The bowl height is about 1.75”. The Tobacco chamber is 0.725” in diameter and tapers down the bowl’s 1.375” inner depth. Capacity is about that of a Group 3 to 4 size Dunhill pipe. It weighs 54 grams. The original black leather pipe that is pictured below bag is included.
Once again, this is a (10)TEN-DAY(10) pipe sale. I do not believe in "Reserve" or "Buy it Now" prices. I want the lucky high buyer to own and enjoy smoking this pipe and not have him frustrate himself with offerding on a pipe that is not attainable on a price basis! Just be the high buyer at the close of this sale, and you will win what could again prove to be the best pipe in your collection!
Please read and review my ratings and comments. Check out the "ME" section after my name "coopersark". I think that you will find this information very informative and telling! Please feel free to send me an e-mail with any questions that you may have about this pipe. I want you to offer with the highest of confidence!
I use only the best of packaging materials. The pipes that I ship have too much time and labor lavished on their restoration and presentations as well as the many of these pipes are irreplaceable works of art. I am not going to risk damage by using lesser packing. (In my twelve years of selling pipes on and shipping thousands of pipes around the world, not a single pipe has been damaged!) I also try my utmost to ship your pipe the same day that I receive your payment, even if this means making a special trip to the Post Office just for you alone. The Registered parcels that ship overseas take extensive time with both the packaging and four forms of documentation that must be filled out. Unfortunately, this all has to be reflected in my shipping costs, so please offer accordingly.The winning buyer will include an additional $12.00 for Priority Mail shipping, tracking, and insurance. (Foreign buyers will remit payment by Pay Pal ONLY and will include an additional $45.00 for International Insured EXPRESS Air Mail shipping. As per both Bay and Pay Pal rules, this pipe will ship both fully insured, with the full value declared for customs. You may have to pay additional duty. No exceptions.) Thank you for your interest. Please do not forget to check out my other sales! Good Luck and Happy offerding!!!
