    I picked up this odd little piece made in 1950s Japan. Its a Salt and Pepper Shaker which also functions as a cork screw and a bottle opener, made in the shape of 2 pipes on a pipe stand....

    It has me wondering... Who else has some odd pipe-related piece in their house? I'd love to see pictures.
    Maybe it will make my wife believe I'm not so weird!!

    That's a nice pair. It'll remind you of pipe smoking whilst at the dinner table. And there's nothing wong with that. Sometimes I eat so I can smoke!

    The pipe eases you into the present moment - savor your pipe & you'll savor this moment.

    All I have that is pipe related that isn't used for pipes is this old Kaywoodie ad. It came with a lot of pipes I bought.


    As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

    josh, I found something that might interest you in my obsessive browsing tonight:

    Click on "Tire-bouchon" near the centre of the page. You can also go back one page and see many other oddities...

    That one was very cool. Much more so than the phallic Oom Paul.

    Paul Kruger Piggy Bank? I know it's supposed to be the guy the oom pauls are named for.
    The wikepedia article only has a brief reference to the pipe shape being named for him. but it's a fun read

    Never far from his pipe, he was a chain smoker.
    sounds like a few of us

    The true measure of a mans worth is how he chooses to chance his mortality
