eBay score

I won an auction this morning for three pipes that appear to have been hand-carved (or hacked) by some anonymous individual rather than made by an actual pipe company. In fact, one of them is nothing but a straight ebauchon that looks like it was stained but not carved out into a pipe. So the win gives me another pre-drilled ebauchon to practice pipe-carving on. I might also try some carving on the other two, since most of the original wood still seems to be there.

The ebauchon and one of the others were never smoked. The third looks like smoking was attempted, but not much.

I'll post more info on them when they arrive.
