    I have been busy with life (work) and haven't posted much lately, but I have bought a few pipes that I thought I would post.

    The first is a Benni Jorgensen Brandy.

    The second is a Joe Nelson panel billiard.

    The third is my first churchwarden - by Michael Lindner.

    The last is a Grant Batson "Canadian", albeit with a six-sided panel shank instead of the normal oval shank.

    Peck while I like them all, that first pipe has got to be the best grain I've ever seen.

    You sir are among the royalty of collectors.

    Es nice. Grant and Michael take some similar cues around the bite area to me. I recently picked up my first Lindner and am very happy with it.

    Fortunately for the pipemakers and sellers of the Western world you weren't too busy to stay abreast of what was available!

    Why do your titles always sound like Law Firms ?
    Fantastic as always. The Jorgensen gets two thumbs up, and that's perhaps my favorite Batson pipe to date.

    It's difficult to choose a favorite among that group. I have a weakness for panels and that one is stellar, but the band on the Batson and the square shank are original. It hasn't been quite the same Forums without you.

    All beauties.

    Nice to hear from you again!
    Wow, those pipes are all beautiful! But my favorite has to be the Nelson panel billiard. I never get too excited about panel pipes that much, but the style of that one along with the blast is really impressive. Well that, and I like billiards more than any other pipe shape.
    Congrats, enjoy!

    Congratulations on these fine pipes!

    Jorgensen: gorgeous lumber X 10
    Nelson: fine blast and natural finish
    Lindner: wonderful blast
    Batson: can do classics as well as freehands, apparently. Perhaps more lovat than Canadian due to the saddle?

    All beauties and I am a big fan of panels. That Joe Nelson really rings my bells.

    Blowin' smoke since 1970.

    Thanks guys.

    I think you are correct about the Batson pipe. It was described to me as a diamond-shank Canadian, but it is really more Lovat (or Lumberman) than Canadian. And the shank isn't a diamond either since it is six-sided.

    I almost forgot about one other recent acquisition - A Rad Davis bamboo billiard.

    All great pipes! A very unusual one from Batson-haven't seen anything similar from him- very nice!

    All beauties, but the Jorgensen gets my vote. Looks very similar to ones created by Ewe Jopp.

    Once again, all beauties.
