I can only speak for myself but if I bought this it would be my first hawkbill, and for my first I'd prefer a more obviously curved shank. This pipe feels almost more like a prince to me, but it's a bit beefier than I'd want in a prince. I'm not trying to knock it, it's gorgeous, it's just floating somewhere in between shapes I'd shell out money for right this moment. I'm sure it will make someone very happy, and I imagine as soon as I see that "Sold" notice I'll regret not buying it myself.

One of the coolest things about pipes, what works for one person may not for another...but there is someone out there for whom this thing will just sing too...and it is a Radice..crunchy at that with a heck of a great price.

it is strange that this pipe at that price in this forum of lovers of good pipes and tobaccos has not been sold yet.

I don't know how much is the shipping amount within the USA, 10 USD?...a barely used Radice for 125 USD (if you take out the shipping) is a bargain, besides, the sandblasting looks great.

Maybe it's the white mouthpiece? or maybe it's not a prince or a Hawkbill but a mix of both?.....

it's strange, gentlemen, in diversity there is beauty and fun....

I have one pipe with a white stem. That is enough. I have two pipes with oval shanks, that is too many. Doesn’t really matter to me what the price is. But if I was in the market for a pipe that looked like a Castello 31 and didn’t mind a white stem, then the OP’s price is probably at least a $100 savings over an estate Old Antiquari Castello 31.
