    Well, I thought that knew every possible Comoy's Rhodesian variant, but this 286 was completely foreign to me. It was advertised without the shape number, so I had to wait a week to see exactly what I had. I'd not heard of this shape nor seen it. Google only yielded a few old Ebay ads and one Asian collector site. The 284 is pretty uncommon (and hotly contested). This 286 seemingly less common (but oddly ignored on the ebay auction)

    This one was rode hard, but came out very serviceable, but with plenty of character. The bowl interior and stem fitment is great, I'll take the maiden voyage smoke tomorrow AM.

    This one makes a great rack mate to my 284 (so I assume the 286 is the saddle stem version). I did not find this shape on any Comoy's chart, nor in any of my scanned literature.

    If you could go back to your 23 year old self and set aside your favorite tobacco, what would it be?

    This is an interesting question!

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” One of the reasons behind this statement is that pipe smoking is meant to be a slow leisurely activity. It takes patience to smoke a pipe. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, there is a certain amount of technique to smoking a pipe. Where cigars and cigarettes can just be picked up, lit and puffed on, pipes require the development of a technique in order to get the best smoking experience.
