So I started smoking a pipe about 3 years ago. I started with a couple of pipes I had bought in Ukraine and a little silver banded billiard I found in a box of junk while helping a friend prepare for a yard sale. When I started the habbit, my wife was concerned that I would get addicted to tobacco, but she soon realized that my real addiction was to pipes. I have bought and restored many others and sold them or given them away. Some of these I got here on the forum or were given to me as gifts, and the rest were the result of uncontrolable PAD. If anybody wants a close up or wants to know more feel free to ask. Never get tired of talking about my pipes. I'm sure there will be more added in the future, as after all you can never have too many pipes. I recently took most of these to pipe club, we had a discussion about pipe shapes and how those shapes got their names. Anyway here they are.
I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

And here's another an unused one...He held up a small pipe with a wide flattened bowl, and handed it to Gimli. 'Does that settle the score between us', said Merry. 'Most noble hobbit, it leaves me deep in your debt."
Very nice collection. You've got a great range of shapes and styles. How do you like your calabash style pipes? I've been thinking I need to add one to my pipes.
Awesome pics Think I see a Mario in there. I think that will be my next purchase

Wonderful collection! Is that a Pete Churchwarden ?
Swhipple, I enjoy the calabash, the small one was my first meer. It smokes great and is perfect for trying new blends. The large I got for xmas, it needs de-oxidized, so I haven't smoked it yet. Good eye Dervis, the pickaxe is a mario grade it is a great smoker and a nice chunk of briar. And Rcstan, the churchwarden is a racing green Peterson.
So how does the cigar pipe smoke ? Great collection .
“There was an awful suspicion in my mind that I'd finally gone over the hump, and the worst thing about it was that I didn't feel tragic at all, but only weary, and sort of comfortably detached.”
That's a great collection, with lots of diversity. I was wondering about the cigar pipe too. Thanks for posting.

I have that cigar pipe, what tobacco do you use in yours?
Nice collection !!
The cigar pipe smokes well, the trick is to roll it as you smoke like you would a cigar for an even burn, also it is good to have a czeck tool for tamping. Use the poker to unscrew the end cap, tamp, and put cap back on, but generally this isn't necessary as you pack it tighter than a normal pipe. It is the perfect pie for smoking in the wind and will be going with me on the AT. Oh and I smoke whatever in it.
Dave is that the little Bertram poker in the picture? The old cajun

Nice collection you got. I really like the horn.
As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper
Cigarettes are an addiction, cigars are a hobby, pipes are a religion
Yep sure is Bradley, its a good little smoker.
I'll take the Oom Paul Seriously though, you should pace yourself! You got the same experiance as me, and I got 3 good pipes!

Haha well I've bought and sold at least 3x that many pipes and given away quite a few too. This is pacing myself.
