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.

The quick story - I've recently gotten hold of a large cache of my older pipes as part of a generous gift to help us pay my wife's cancer surgery expenses. Over the next weeks, I'll be gradually posting them as I get them cleaned, inspected, etc. Many of these pipes are NEW and UNSMOKED and have been part of a display collection, sometimes for as much as 20 years!

...And this is one of those pipes. This is a 2003 Ligne Bretagne, in a now out-of-stock shape, one of the very last of the bent billiard Ligne Bretagnes, and it's never been smoked since it was sold fifteen years ago. I've given it a fresh wax and polish and a little airhole interior tweaking, but otherwise it's exactly as it left our workshop in 2003. Back then, we'd just bought all the Ligne Bretagne stock the year before and there were a number of shapes in the stock that we've since sold out of, this being one. We only had maybe a dozen or so of these bent billiards to start with, and as one might expect, a shape this popular sold quickly and by 2003 we'd sold the last one, thereby consigning this design to the LB shape graveyard. I've done a few handmade LB Collectors in the years since in this design, roughly, but of course they're a good bit more expensive. That makes this possibly the last of these LB bent billiards on earth to be left unsmoked and in new condition.
