    I love all my pipes, but my favorite is also my first. It's a small red and black rusticated Sport. We've only been together for a bit over a month, but I've realized that it's selection says a lot about me.
    My little pipe says to the world that I like adventure and won't settle for just one color, that texture is fun and I like to get a solid grip on things. It's small size says I'm ready to go anywhere at a seconds notice and the solid plastic stem and bit say I value things that are built to last. It says I enjoy the classic things in life with it's bent shape, but like to mix it up with its small size and bright red peeking through the black.

    What does your favorite pipe say about you?

    A smile will always keep them guessing.

    My MM bent Legend says I am cheap!

    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
    -C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)

    My favorite is my estate Peterson XL315 with so many fills I named in "Fillzilla". I paid around $42 bucks for it including shipping.

    It say's, I'm on a self imposed pipe budget, appreciate the value of loyalty over looks, and one day when it's sitting next to my yet unbought hand made pipes, it'll say "Remember back when we used to tear it up?"

    I love it so much I ordered it's twin sister, only she's rusticated.

    Mike, It doesn't say cheapskate. If its the one in your pic it say you enjoy simpler things that last.
    Jah76, It's great that you liked it so much you got the sister. I can relate.

    I keep to my Cobs. I have a couple briars that I'll use when the mood strikes me, and I love them dearly. I find however that the cobs always smoke well, and I don't have to worry about abusing them since they aren't irreplaceable.

    Interesting thread, thanks for posting it, eibhir!

    You know, I'm a bit odd (as anyone who really knows me will definitely attest to).

    I honestly don't have a "favorite pipe." I enjoy all my pipes, with a very few that I just don't like as well as the others. Funny how that is.

    What pipe I reach for goes with my mood with a nod to the particular tobacco blend I am going to pack in it. Trying a new viriginia blend for the first time, the pipe will like be a conical dublin. A new aromatic or English, probably one of my meerschaums. An oriental, an Author. Yet, truly, since almost all of my pipes are Group 4 or 5, any of them smoke the blends I like quite well.

    If I had to pick one pipe as a favorite, it would probably be a Peterson meerschaum, though it is impossible for me to pick which one LOL.

    I'm thinking that if I truly did not like a pipe, I'd likely sell it.

    I do have a favorite, my Dunhill ODB. It says I am a debonair, man about town.

    Paying only $157 for it says I'm a cheap SOB.

    So cheap, working mans pipe, built to last, and a holder over from an older generation?

    It says I'm cheap, putting everything in tobacco, and what I don't make for myself, I'll buy some pipes when the hammer falls on tobacco. I will probably sneak that honey pipe in this summer though

    No, it just means I'm a dick. I do, however, mistreat my pipes in respect to current "wisdom" regarding proper care.

    My pipes are a testament to my good taste and refinement. They also make me the most interesting man on the planet and that when I do drink beer, I drink Dos Equis.

    My Rad and some Dunhills I have recently purchased-and to top them off, a Maker's Mark on the rocks at my side.

    Hopefully, they will not dilute as the company has threatened. Although now I'm discovering Michter's 10 year reserve.

    I really like that someone had a Dunhill that was his favorite, but most of you had something else. I have a pipe rack built around a tobacco jar that came
    to me from my dad from his dad. But Dad smoked his pipes to charred ruins, no rotation, Granger always. My favorite tends to be the one I'm smoking
    at the time. Tonight that's a bent apple carved by Jerry Perry of Colfax, N.C., made out of mountain laurel root with a gold-brown stem. What does it
    say about me? I guess I know a good thing when I see it, mostly. I have three other Perry's, four Joh's, Peterson's, Sav's, and others. This pipe has a
    little line drawing carved in the bowl of a mountain laurel with a bird high above, and dark walnut stain.

    My current favorite pipe is a maple nose warmer. Light weight, durable, and supremely portable, it's better suited for jungle warfare than for quiet evenings by the fire.

    I don't have one favorite, I have several. The meerschaum ones would say I'm fragile, I guess. But I wouldn't agree with that. The others are all pipes that aren't the typical style, which I would agree with. I walk to the beat of my own drum, and am often told I am "weird", to which I reply "Thank you".

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

    I do have some nice wood, but my favorite (because it's the best smoker of all) cost me less than $15 years ago. It's the only piece of wood I own that smokes as cool and clean as a cob, every time.

    I don't have a favorite right now. My current pipe sucks. I had two. Stem broke on one, the shank cracked on the other. I was able to piece one stem from one to another, but it's not a perfect fit and the draw sucks... it's like sucking mud through a coffee stirrer. Not that I've done that... just sayin. Learned my lesson with super cheap pipes. I have four new pipes on the way in the mail though, and between the savi, the nording, the peterson st patty 2013 (i'm proud of that one already) and the bjorne, I'm sure one of those will be my favorite. I will post here again when one of them becomes that.

    Eibhir... Yep That one and the Nording should be here on the 4th I think. And the Bjarne and savinelli the following day. Or is it the other way around? Anyway, it will be here soon and i'm going nuts about it. I was thinking about waiting until st patty's day to smoke her for the first time, but not sure I'll be able to wait that long lol.

    My favorite pipe is my Savinelli 645 Bent Apple Short Pipe. I don't know what it says, because I've never thought about it. I guess it says I like simple and not fancy, I like quality but don't want to over pay for it, and I like durability.

    I hadn't thought of that. It might not be broken in by then, but perhaps well on it's way. I think you're right I'll get a few smoke in by then, and perhaps I'll have a wonderful St. Patty's Day smoke. Thanks
