    Thanks to the beautiful wobbly tilted pokers and cherrywoods posted on here lately, my PAD is flaring up again.
    Just grabbed this GBD:

    I've got a fever and the only cure is more pokers.

    This my is only cherrywood. Its a Storient PM 2012. I had his carve MOD on it since I'm a mod and it's the official forum pipe of 2012

    [list]

    As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

    Thank! It says PM 2012 on the other side of the shank. I've only smoked it a handful of times. I have to smoke outside, and it's been really cold out. I don't want to risk cracking it.

    I missed that GBD, assume it was on Ebay? How is it stamped? (Rockroot?)

    Yes, eBay.

    Stamped:
    GBD
    Tabou

    then a "St. Claude" stamp and a shape number. I'll know more when it gets here. Haven't seen any Tabou line in the references...

    The title begs for an off color joke, but I liked the GBD so much I didn't have the heart. I'm glad your yearning has been temporarily cured!

    Pokers are lovely in their simplicity. One of mine is a LaRocca with a good big deep bowl and narrow metal band. Recently I saw a Parker in sandblast black.
    I hadn't seen a Parker poker before, so I jumped on it. (I'm used to the little apples and pots.) It's a great little pipe, breaking in nicely. I call pokers snowman
    pipes because of their homey shape. I have a hand-carved example from Jerry Perry in N.C., with striking variance in the bowl thickness, a kind of zen
    irregularity, which I also especially like. Every pipe rack needs a resident poker.
