Non-US buyers are responsible for all customs fees incurred in their country. "Out of Stock" messages during check-out mean that the pipe has already sold, but I have not yet updated the catalog page to reflect its "Sold" status.

As I write this, Hurricane Florence is just hours off of the Carolina coast so it seems highly appropriate for this particular pipe, as it's a great example of the sheer weirdness of a lot of old Algerian briar - The grain is centered in one small, tight knot of bird's-eye on the left side and the age rings radiate out in a spinning circular pattern from that, looking a heck of a lot like the satellite weather maps of the hurricane that's heading our way. While it may not be the "classic" style of stacked ring grain, I think it makes up for that through sheer weirdness - It's definitely a distinctive and one-of-a-kind pattern.

I should also point out that this is an eight-sided panel pipe - The grain highlighting tends to make the panel sides less obvious in photos, but you can see the bowl design clearly in the top-down pics where you can see the edged lines of the smooth bowl rim. I like the look of a smooth rim on panels like this, as I think it goes well with their overall "precision" styling theme. The finish is two-toned sandblasted, with orange-red highlights and deeper, darker recesses.

The hurricane pipe!
