If someone gave you an estate pipe for your birthday, would you be insulted?
The reason I am asking is: My father in law smokes cigars with us ocasionally and talks about the days when he used to smoke a pipe in his younger days.
His birthday is comming up and I was thinking of getting him a pipe, not sure if I should buy a new one or a vintage Savinelli or a Piterson.
So, that's the question... if you got a used pipe, would you be insulted?
PS: I do smoke a pipe as well as cigars. (not very often)
My pipes are nothing fancy:
1. Hilson Maestro #272
2. Meershaum claw pipe
3. Barontini Delux #806
4. Jobey Hand Rubbed
5. Jobey 230
