So I decided to take some pics of my newest addition and my collection as a whole.
Here is my newest pipe, a Nording. I am currently breaking her in with a B&M English blend but am reading the threads and will be acquiring some tins of something SOON...




Also stopped by an antique store over the weekend and got this rack and Yello-Bole pipe for $17. So here is the entire collection. Not much compared to what I have seen on the site but I am starting to get PAD really BAD !!!




Now about that new tobacco I need to get ...............

Nice collection and nice racks too - and I think we all know the feeling of PAD. It's a killer!

That's a fine looking new pipe you have there and you have the basis for a good rotation. I hope you enjoy the interesting discussions here on the forum.

Flmason - thanks for the link and the warm welcome. I will be reading up on that group.
Uberam, Six, and Withnail - I have read a BUNCH of your posts over the last three weeks, and to Flmason's point, this is a GREAT site with some of the friendliest folks I have never met.
Withnail- I sent you a PM about Blakemar earlier. I would love your input on their quality.
Thanks guys, I hope some day I can add some value to this site like you gents do often.
Happy smoking, :puffy:
Dan

Hey Dan, nice start! I'm already up to 16 pipes only 2.5 months in, starting to get some nicer thingsin collection. PAD is a demanding mistress!

I built up my collection fast. I was buying pipes moire then baccy at first. But now I have 32 pipes, which is a number I'm comfortable with for now. I might add another cob or something else, as I have one spot open on one of my racks.

Thanks Roth,
I read your many posts this morning on the thread Withnail started on GL Pease baccy that is now available to him in the UK. I will definitely take your recommendations under consideration as it seems your opinion is widely sought out on this site...and to me having many resident experts is a GREAT thing for a noob like myself.
Foggy - I like the way you put that :puffy:

Now that's an antique store I would monitor closely. That's a fine rack for a healthy collection. I've

waded through my share of antique stores, flea markets, and garage sales, and have never come

across anything pipe or pipe-related, but I'm still looking. I guess I'm in cigarette country and pipes

were never that big, or I'm looking in the wrong places. But you should keep checking. And the

prices are right.

You're not kidding MSO. I was actually looking for a bar after leaving my dentists office (my hygienist and I went to HS together and she recommended it to me) and this place was right across the street. SOMETHING made me go in there. I think I was hoping for some estates but when I saw that rack I pounced.

I love the Nording... but of course you probably already figured I would lol. I hope you enjoy it as much as I'm enjoying mine. Let us know how it smokes :) And I'm sure, like mine, it's freaking HUGE!

It is the biggest bowled pipe I have Anthony. I am going to smoke it again today with some English Luxury. It's a crisp day here in NJ and I think an afternoon pipe will be just what the doctor ordered :puffy:
