    You'll be needin' to toss that in the dinghy or run it up the mast on a string.

    As above, I don't think it's possible to love pipe smoking without loving pipes, and then buying pipes. I think the longest I went in my last five years of smoking not buying was nine months. Not smoking, I still look at pipes and am at times tempted to buy. But it really helps control PAD when QPS (quit pipe smoking).

    Nice forward jutting Dublin!

    Got a Giubileo D'Oro 904 from an Australian seller last year for $75, and returned it after finding it didn't have the brass inner tube. It was nice, just wanted it to be complete.

    Good gawd, embers, you're worse on specific addictions than I am, & I thought I was one of the worst! -evyl grin-

    One of my old regular customers way back when had a similar one, but he did admittedly vary the kind of "crack" he wanted. He'd come in twice a month & buy two each time. His "needs" were very simple: Peterson, half bent, military bit, bowl shape/finish immaterial. The first 3 elements were hard & fast, though. As you can imagine, after the first couple of years, finding suitable smokes for him started to be a challenge!

    Gorgeous pipe; you know me & Savs by now; Dublins & Zulus are a downfall for me as well. I've only bought 8 pipes in the last two weeks. I had to use incredible restraint to keep it to that for my marriage's sake. The wife looked at me awfully oddly when two more racks came in the mail the other day....

    What makes it worse is that that shape is available as a 904, a 9004, and the GBD 9613. My wife doesn't raise an eyebrow to anything that soothes my nerves. Her book collection rivals anything I've accumulated in the past 20 years we've been together. Most of those yachts were bought within a 3 month period last year, and all but 2 were under $30.

    Ahhhhh, gotcha. I think maybe one reason she hasn't said anything .. YET .. is that in our 35.5 yrs I've yet to complain about her yarn, fabric, & patterns. Some of us here have a man cave? Our house has a *yarn* one....

    You should have seen them before I restored them.

    I love Savinelli pipes, but I've never been a fan of that shape. Not sure why, but it doesn't do anything for me. Good thing is you won't have to worry about me snagging any from you.
    Congrats on the newest acquisition. Enjoy the new pipe! I hope it treats you well.

    You should take it to the next level, Cap'n.

    Get one of those stemmed briar blocks and attempt to carve your own "904".

    I have duplicates of two pipes, the Peterson B11 brandy as a Killarney ebony "dress" pipe and as a Shannon, and the Stanwell 32 bulldog in silke brune and smooth, but mostly I'm a variety junky. Nonetheless, I really admire Embers' wide selection of 904's, and it strikes me that having quite a few, he has really perfected smoking that shape and found the blends that do best, and the cadence, etc.
