I am a relatively new (1 1/2 years) pipe smoker, and recently I seem to be displaying early symptoms of PAD (TAD has already taken a paralyzing grip). The following is my current shelf: 2 MM Washington corncobs, a John Peel Myre Oslo(Dublin), Yello-Bole Aristocrat 69 (apple), an Imperial "San-blank-ra-blank" ("blank" being letters that have been rubbed away)(Dublin), a DIGE 9438 (bent bulldog), a Winchester (billiard), a Kaywoodie Prime Grain 04 (billiard, I think), a Museum 8-panel (Dublin), an Eric King (Billiard), a Pamplin clay pipe, a Gouda clay tavern pipe, a Goedewaagen Cutty clay pipe, and a small Dr. Grabow (apple). I am trying to channel my budding PAD into more constructive channels, so I was wondering if anyone could tell me what are good makers of pipes to look for during my antique shop rambles. Also if anyone could tell me about the pipes that I already have, whether or not they are basket pipes or something a little better. I know that most of them are baskets, (Dr. Grabow, Yello-Bole) but I don't know about some of the others.
