I stopped by JM Boswell's last night and picked up another pipe from his wall. My freehand is wonderful, but too large to take on trips. I travel a lot for work and I always have three things with me: my own pillow, something to read and now a pipe.

I lucked out on my no-name Estate pipe and it smokes great and I love the bent shape. Boswell had one on the wall and I grabbed it for less than a Peterson or Savinelli goes for online somewhere. I also brought home some "Premium Burley" and "Countryside" to try along with a resupply of Northwoods.

Here's the new acquisition, nothing fancy. But, smoked great in the shop and fits neatly in my back and hangs great.

On my last trip to Boswells, I didn't realize they have a nice lounge upstairs, its very nice.

That's a nice looking pipe! I have a couple of their pipes and would love to visit their shop someday.

Very graceful shape to that Boswell, and cool looking rim! And man, I do like that Countryside tobacco ...

Jury is out on the Countryside, wife didn't like the aroma either. I'll save for future use. Just finished a bowl of their Premium Burley, that to me, is wonderful. Definitely stopping back next week for a proper fill, I had barely a bowl full this morning. For a $70 pipe, this pipe is terrific and will be my regular carry (replacing my p-lip Pete Aran).
Boswell's does have plenty of pipes available in the shop. If anyone has a particular style you want, I'd be happy to stop by and snap a picture/purchase/ship for you. Just give me a shout. They also just got in some of those leather Peterson pipe/tobacco pouches, but they were priced a little step. I ordered a large 2-pipe from Pipes & Cigars, hopefully have that in a few days. That fit my Boswell freehand and another, for vacations, extended travel.
