    Just wondering the favorite 7 pipes in your collection. I know the top 7 changes as you add others to your collection.

    So far these are mine, from left to right - French Plateau - MeerQueen Meerschaum - Armellini - Estella - Chacom - Peterson - Christmas Comoy (unsmoked)

    Unfortunately I dont have seven pipes. I am working on a plan to get 7 large bent bulldogs made in the Uk. I have one ferndown reo right now and a Northern Briars I am having made. I plan on another Northern Briars and an Askwith and a couple more Ferndowns. I always have my eye out for a Dunhill 5108.

    In no certain order

    '32-'38 Kaywoodie Drinkless 8783B, the shape, finish and age are just incredible.

    GBD 9438 Virgin, I looked for this one for a couple of years.

    Ashton Pebble Grain, a gift from my wife on my 50th birthday and first Ashton.

    Jack Howell, my first artisan pipe.

    Sasieni Ashford Rustic, this shape was also on my wish list for several years.

    Comoys 440, A recent addition, but the size/shape is quickly becoming a favorite.

    Comoys 499 Extraordinaire, the first pipe found on my "Holy Grail" list.

    Ones that I smoke:
    Beat to hell Barling with a replacement stem that is a magic pipe
    Large Barling Quaint with meerschaum lining
    Spanu pot with cork covering
    Lee Von Erck Dublin
    Lee Von Erck paneled billiard
    Barling apple
    Barling Quaint pot

    then, there's the other 100+ pipes that I like just as much

    @ Dottie - would love to see pics of your Chacom's, I love them and their wide variety

    Everyone seem to have a heap of beautiful pipes, love to see pics.

    @ Voorhees - that Growley has amazing grain, looks great set on a backdrop of that weathered plank. Love your Nordings also. Nice

    @ Griffonwing - love the majority of your pipes, but I love most bents. Especially love the Butz Choqin Calabash, the Pete and Stanwells

    Savanelli King's Circle Featherweigt [sic]
    Dr Grabow Grand Duke (Filtered)
    GBD Americana 1970
    Probably No Name French pipe ("Straight Grain" "Algerian Briar")
    Jansen's N. O.

    Cockney 9456
    Medico Seafoam (partially for sentimental reasons--A HS Graduation gift in 1965. Filtered)
    Royal Ascot deluxe
    GBD Baronet 790
    Clubhouse 9436

    And yes, I know there are eight, but that's how many the rack holds. (And I was a English Major).

    Actually, I'd take that Clubhouse of there and replace it with a No name Filtered author, but it doesn't fit in that rack.

    That straight grain and the King's Circle are great short smoke pipes.

    They look it. My favorite short smoke is a small Alpha pipe. Its a Zulu/Pear Freehand shape..I'm not really sure. But its age and grain quality make this the pipe I use to test out certain blends.
