    6 months into this hobby and these are the pipes so far....

    Two estate spigot Petes (just cleaned this evening)
    My original college experiment purchase many years ago a Peterson 2nd
    Lovely smoking Savinelli Primo Fumo bent apple
    My latest eBay purchase the Bjarne bent (don't know what shape name it is)
    Rattrays Bent Rustic Rhodey (Love smoking this one) (new
    My beginner pipe - a Falcon Coolway straight apple
    A Savinelli Deluxe Milano Straight Billiard (estate) (unfortunately whistles as I draw in on it.. to be sorted out I guess!)
    And on the right a Design Berlin bent acorn estate

    Not a bad start - my girlfriend might be getting worried though, I'm averaging almost two a month!!!

    Thanks all!

    I am having a very temporary break from pipe buying so I thought I'd take stock, clean up the recent estate purchases tonight and share!

    I do seem to prefer bents so far!

    At your current pace that's about 18 pipes a year. That's a pretty good case of PAD. Unfortunately there is no know cure.

    You can coast for a while if you can. Those are all the pipes you actually need, but I'm being a hypocrite because I have around eighty. You might like a MM cob freehand with its acrylic stem by and by.

    Nice collections!

    Also of the school I have more than enough, but not yet way more! So, yesterday to celebrate an anniversary I bought a new bent brandy, a gem, made by Fourth Generation for Stokebyye.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Not a bad one in the bunch. You are fatally bitten my friend. Anticipation of the delivery is like being 10 years old and waiting all night to see if Santa brought you that new Red Rider

    Keep collecting! When she becomes your wife it'll be time for YOU to worry!

    "do or do not, there is no try". Apparently you put the "do" in your PAD. Very nice collection so far!

    The Rattrays is a beauty. I really need a bent dog.

    Nice set, beerandbaccy!

    The top two look like systems to me - are you sure they are spigots? What does the stamp say? (They look real nice, but to my eye, like a System Standard 317 and a rusticated 303).

    Dunhill will return.

    Thanks all!

    @backwoodsjack It smokes really well and feels good in the hand

    @rfernand you're right they are system petes, I thought the spigot bit was referring to the metal join for the mouthpiece but with further web-looking I can now see the difference!

    Did you catch the shape numbers by any chance? (317 and 303 are my guesses)
