    I do have a weakness for canadians. Perhaps it's a mental thing but I always perceive that the more briar the more it would absorb moist. Plus they look super cool.

    I have no idea what you're talking about.

    Funny, to a non-pipe person, all those pipes look exactly the same.

    Not at all. Some are forward swept yachtsmen, and others are yachtsmen with a forward sweep.

    Rhodesians, those with a tapered stem are my favorites.

    Hijvnshr:

    Thanks a bunch for fixing the image. I've been puzzled as to
    how it miraculously appeared.

    Prefer billiards and canadians for regular use, but have been looking at squat tomatoes recently.
    Gotta have one of those.

    I collect bulldogs, dublins, and all shapes within the sub-genres of those. But, I have branched out on a few of my recent acquisitions.

    Acorn shaped pipes seem to outnumber the other shapes in my collection

    I’m a Lovat fan. Not any particular make or model, but Lovats are my hands down favorite shape. I believe that I have 18 Lovats as of now.

    Basic billiard but with oversize bowl (Savinelli EX) is good. 1/4 or 1/2 bent with a saddle stem.

    I used to despise bulldogs but damn I do love my Sav 320 KS.

    Straight, tapered Billiards or Pots and lately, Bulldogs/Rhodesians. I call it variation on the same theme.

    tt, I have but 1 320 shape but love the shape-it's my second favorite. However, never been one to want to own multiples of the same pipe even in different finishes or lines. Will say, though, that's a shape that would tempt me to do so.

    I have soft spot for Canadian, Lumberman, Liverpool and Lovats of course, Yet classic straight billiards catches my eye.

    So many well-liked shapes on my racks and in my cabinet, but I have a clinical weakness for straight billiards.

    I have more Billiards, Dublins and Apples than any other shape in my collection. I also like Rhodesians and Lovats.

    Not at all. Some are forward swept yachtsmen, and others are yachtsmen with a forward sweep.
    That's an important difference to consider

    Historically, I've had a thing for bent billiards.

    Since moving back to northern Michigan, leaving my "Chicago" collection packed until I move into a real house, I've built a new rotation of Stanwell 86s. I've got a full 12-pipe rack of them now.
