Thought of sharing an update on my current rotation of pipes. I have started smoking in early March with two pipes I found in my late father's belongings. A Falcon Extra straight with an apple bowl he bought during his internship in the UK in the 70s and a Pierre Morel handmade which I don't use much. Since then I added all the rest to the collection.
Peterson:

Dracula 999

Ebony System XL315 fishtail
Falcon:

Extra straight

Extra bent

With bowls:

smooth Istanbul - Algiers - Apple

Rusticated Rim Dublin

Rusticated Genoa (larger apple)
Stanwell black sandblast Royal Danish tapered Billiard
Orlik Deluxe L220 pre-Cadogan


And I hope they smoke for so long and that I can have other siblings to them.

Puff on, everyone :puffpipe:

Nice pipes! Is the Pierre Morel a Sr. or Jr.? Senior was quit a sculptur also. He passed away in 1978. In the early 70's I made him a custom knife for a one of a kind hand made pipe of his. His son is a well known pipe maker. Jr. taught Brunno Nuttens of France his craft. Brunno also make some beauties. If your Morel is a Sr. it's very collectable, more so in the European market.
KEEP ON PUFFING!!!
It is Morel Sr. Early 70s I presume. It is a billiard/Chimney straight with natural grain.

Nice, I like the pipe rack too, looks like very fine craftsmanship. Also noticed the avatar update, dig the retro B&W thing there :clap:

Congrats on the nice little collection you've going there.
The Dracula is making me drool for a bowl right now and that Stanwell blast looks like it was made for me.

Thanks all for the comments. And that pipe stand was a great find at the local B&M made by a master carpenter for them
As for the Morel, I detached the stinger and it smokes beautifully now. It needs more buffing and ai don't have th tools for it. I will try to get fine sandpaper and do it.
And the dracula is great, one of my favourites. And the Stanwell is a must have

The B&W is actually reaemble a carbon drawing. Which looks quite cool in big format. Will get a link of it when I get on a computer
