ATF. I use all three.
I'm starting to contact carvers about the 2023 LE pipe and am wondering what everyone here is willing to spend on a pipe. With the economy the way it is, free money to spend on a pipe is drying up for a lot of us. Keep in mind that we are getting really a good deal regardless of who we choose. For example, one carver I talked to usually starts prices in the $600 range but would be willing to do a LE for us at $450 with choice of stem color from 3-4 offered. The ultimate goal is to get a great pipe at a price point that as many people as possible can afford. Realistically getting an artisan carver to do a LE pipe for under $200 is probably going to be hard to impossible to do unless we go with a lesser known carver.
