    How many bowls a day do you smoke?

    Sorry if my English is bad. I mean that it seems some members go what resembles cold turkey to me, from time to time. That requires more than good self discipline. Hats off puf

    Talk to me about Wrist Watches

    I love wrist watches. Preferably (relatively affordable) automatic Swiss ones from the sixties. That's what I am wearing every day, since I was a kid in the sixties :-) I do not find it very smart looking at your phone, just to know the time. Especially at the job, meetings or social gatherings...

    Danish School?

    tobefrank, I think big 9mm filter pipes from Denmark mostly made for mainly the German market, not part of domestic Danish design, only for export, since only few Danes used filters or bought bigger pipes.

    Found A Comoy's Over The Weekend

    Nice find. I also happen to have two of the ‘newer’ Comoy’s Tradition, with the later ‘non part 3’c but made in London. They are both of good quality. The stems need some regular maintenance to stay nice looking but they are also among my favourites.Pipedia

    Did Anyone Get Rich Making Pipes?

    Yes, some pipe makers became rich according to Pipedia : Lars Ivarsson's favorite anecdote about Sixten, is this: An American came into the work shop and bought an expensive pipe. He said to Sixten: You must be a rich man. Sixten answered him: I am very rich... and I have a little money too.

    Keep Your Eye On THIS Auction --- It Will Go Nuclear

    @davidy97. Yes, but I still want them :-) I think the seemingly large bits on some of the pictures, may also have to do with the usual wideangle perspective distortion. Perhaps they did not use a proper lens for shooting these pipes, as we see so often here and everywhere.... To see all the...

    Keep Your Eye On THIS Auction --- It Will Go Nuclear

    132 watchers. 1924. Wow! What a nice set. H. A. W. ? : Only missing some provenance, perhaps. Seems this pipe market is still somewhat alive :-)

    What Pipe tops Your PAD List Right Now?

    Although I do have sufficient self discipline at the moment, I could easily share the PAD of @Carolinachurchwarden's two straight pipes mentioned above. Since these small Barlings are too rare to be found unsmoked, I would probably just buy a similar brand new Dunhill and start looking around...

    Winslow pipes

    Like cigrmaster I have had several Winslows of various grades. Mine were/are size 2 to 4, mostly classsic styles and I still have a few left that I cannot part with. Almost everything about them is perfect: design (subjective), grain, drilling, finish, smokability and stemwork. The only...
