    For those of us still working our way through PAD, what is tops on that list right now? Some exquisite carved Meer? Vintage British briar?

    For me it is one of these, a Peterson from the Tara line.

    A family era unsmoked Sasieni but I am afraid that will stay a dream. I do not have a birth year pipe yet, so that one would be second perhaps.

    Those are quite nice, Mike. I've liked the way those look since they released. I really like the XL02. I've been really wanting to get a Barling to add to my collection. There's just something to me about those pipes from that early era that make me want to own one, so right now, I'm busily trying to find me a very nice Barling to smoke. Currently seeking something like this:

    Other than that, I still have a simple billiard style meerschaum with a silver spigot at the top of my list to either find or have made, either/or, but I'm putting it off until I hopefully find what I want already made. I looked at this one, but I wanted something new to color myself:

    I also happen to want a GBD Prehistoric bent rhodesian. I saw one last year that wasn't for sale, but had sold that made my mouth water. Something like this:

    To round out my top spots of PAD searching, I'm also trying to find me a Peterson with a windcap. Have been wanting one for a while.

    My PAD is mostly on haitus lately, but funny you mention Altinok.

    In the 30-plus years I've been smoking one pipe or another, I've yet to pick up a meerschaum. I always thought I'd break it or something. I haven't dropped a pipe in a long time, and I haven't had to buy a new pair of sunglasses for years (believe me, there's a correlation), so when the right meer for sale catches my eye, I'm fer-cryin'out-loud going for it.

    Which brings me to Altinok. For years, they had a dual-stem claw/egg that I would have snapped up in a second. As fortune would have it, someone finally bought it.

    *Sigh!* Sometimes you just can't win.

    A Peterson Celtic Natural 106. But I'm just about ready to give up my search for that one. I can't even find a photo online of that one anymore, although I know they exist or existed, because I've seen one before. I've been looking for too long and I know I've missed out on some good pipes while obsessing over that one. So right now, I'm going to focus on something else. There's actually a few on my list, but I really don't know for certain which of those is on top of the list. So, just whichever comes first.

    I've found out what works best for me. It's bent billiards, not too heavy with acrylic stems. Preferably sandblast, but not necessarily. And not too expensive. I'm looking at this one:

    I have been eyeballing this Larry Roush pipe since it was listed on SP. I have always wanted to add one of Larry's pipes to my collection, but things just haven't worked out for what ever reason. My issue isn't that I cannot afford, it is do I want to. I have never paid 700.00 for just one pipe. My last 2 purchases were a Weaver and a Ruthenberg which were brand new and basically half the retail price. It is hard for me to justify one pipe for 700.00 when I bought 2 for 600.00

    Another thing stopping me is the shaping on the pipe. I don't think it is that great and for 700.00 I need to love it. The blast is gorgeous but the bowl itself looks off to my eye.

    What size is that one it is a beauty. Castello's are my weakness, If I ever learn to post a picture on this site I will post my collection. I have a shape 55 I ordered from Castello that took a year to get here. They only cut the shape 55 once a year. I say buy it and smoke the crap out of it

    That's a beautiful Roush, Harris. I'm kind of wanting a Former as of late. Although, a Roush would be nice too. I just don't want a saddle stem and/or anything over 1.5 ounces. Really, an ounce, but I don't think I've seen many Roushs' even under 2.0 ounces? I'd settle for 1.9 if I ever find one. Former, on the other hand, can come in right around an ounce more often. I like jawing a pipe and it's a sissy.

    My white whale pipe is a suede blasted Lovat from Walt Cannoy.

    Other than that I'm really into Sam Adebayo's work. Looking to grab one of Nate King, Micah Redmond and Bill Shalosky's too. I'd like a Yeti Pipes, a Jared Coles, Scott Klein, J.Alan, Brad Pohlman. So many really good American carvers out there.

    I'm pretty well set. About the only couple of items I'd like to get is a cased Barling companion set in clean condition and a billiard from Ken Barnes to replace the one that I very reluctantly sold at the WCPS last November. But for now, this will have to wait.

    You piqued my interest, so I took a look. He has some pretty nice deals, The only Barling I saw was a model 5109, which is a nice shape, It's not the same thing as the 249. It was made after the company was taken over by Imperial tobacco, so not the same quality of wood or carvers. It also appears to have been topped, judging by the coloration of the rim.

    Although I do have sufficient self discipline at the moment, I could easily share the PAD of @Carolinachurchwarden's two straight pipes mentioned above. Since these small Barlings are too rare to be found unsmoked, I would probably just buy a similar brand new Dunhill and start looking around for an unsmoked Andreas Bauer with army mount. I presume with a simple army mount, it would be easier to find or have made a good ebonite stem, also for the meerschaum. I actually already have a good spare stem for it, hmmm

    That Roush in the pic is 51 grams or 1,82 oz which I have no problem with that weight. You are correct as many of his pipes are over 2 oz's. I would never pay the freight for a new Former. His prices are insane now. I once owned 6 of his pipes and ended up selling them all.

    I REALLY want a Nording Valhalla Spigot, straight billiard, smooth or otherwise. They’re just clean and mean. I know it’s not a fancy pipe, but I’ve been obsessed with them for a while.

    Primarily eBay and pipe shows, the occasional online dealer, or through contacts in the greater pipe collecting community. There have been a few people who have contacted me privately about selling a Barling to me that I might like, and that has worked out well on both sides of the deal. I suspect you can find more at auctions or garage sales in the eastern states. Used to be tobacconists, but pipes and pipe tobaccos for sale are pretty close to extinct in Los Angeles, though the cigar scene is alive and well.

    I am aware a few few well-known collectors who, like Jessie, get first pick of some of the finest pipes because of they focus on a particular brand or style of pipe. Rick Newcombe (magnums) and Fred Hanna (straight grains) come to mind, but there are a number of others. I haven’t identified an area of focus yet that quali.

    My PAD, which I hope to satisfy at the Chicagoland show is a J. Alan, a JT Cooke blast, or another Brad Pohlmann.

    If I wasn't swimming in pipes, and had a windfall in hand, I'd shop for one of the smaller (medium sized Group 4) Castellos. I think their quality is at or above White Spot with steep prices, but not over the moon. I like my various brands of Italian pipes -- Savinelli, Ser Jacopo, and the late lamented Luciano, among others. If you come across estate Luciano's, they're worth looking at. A great Danish discontinued pipe is Bari.

    The only cure for PAD is not to look. If you see a pipe that looks really delicious, click on something else as fast as you can. My independent pipe shop owner once found me gazing at the pipe wall and asked me if I saw anything I liked, and I said I was looking for something I didn't like.

    sherm', you're right, Nording makes great up-market pipes. My wife gave me a zebra hunter Nording for Christmas 2017, similarly long stemmed but not what I'd call a 'warden, with carved stripes on the briar, but similar in scale and weight to this, a great smoking pipe, I'll say.

    It is a pretty spectacular pipe. And if it's ever dropped down to something representing a fair market price, like slightly less than half, it would sell.

    PAD has been mostly held at bay lately, although I did just put a bid in on a cheap beater Savinelli in one of my favorite shapes. But I have been on the lookout for a decently priced Dunhill Panel Shell Briar for a while now. Hard to find one without spending an arm and a leg but I'm optimistic I can find one within my budget with a little more patience.

    I'd love another couple of Roamn Kovalev's pipes in my collection, for sure.

    I seen that Victor the other day on SP, isn't it gorgeous ? Anyone own any of these magnetic stems? What are they like? Seems very interesting but will it hold up long term ?

    Asking fishnbanjo about PAD is like asking Bill Gates if he'd like an investment tip. (!)

    I just recently scratched that itch...for now anyway. I always wanted an antler pipe from the late Sam Learned. Got this a couple of weeks ago, so I'm good for now.

    As far as current PAD an Ardor is out there with my name on it.

    It's gone, so I'm never looking again ...

    That's definitely one of the nicest claw meers I've ever seen a pic of.

    This is an amazing pipe. It is way out of my price range but still...

    Holy cow...that grain is amazing for sure...and the entire shaping is really impressive.

    embers, I was eyeballing that pipe when I saw it listed,freaking gorgeous. Totally out of my pain threshold as well. The magnetic stem thing sounds very cool. He is the first I have ever seen to use it.

    He also has a few pipes listed over at Al Pascia you should check out.

    I'm wondering just how well that magnetic seal is. That's a lot of cash to drop on a pipe that may leak.

    I wonder if he gives some kind of guarantee that if it loosens, he fixes it for free and pays for shipping. For the kind of money he is charging, he really should.

    With my recent addition of a 2015 Peterson Founder's Edition pipe, I can say I've drained the PAD out of me. There simply is no desire on my part to buy another pipe. Of course, who knows if the flame of desire will re-emerge in the future.

    Rattray's 'The Devil's Cut' whiskey barrel pipe keeps calling my name...even though my recently purchased Savinelli Caramella and Chacom Noel 2018 billiard should have stopped all PAD ambition.

    I would like to add a few Castello’s to the stable but after that it’s time to start looking at artisan/commissions.

    Sasquatch... promise I’m going to email you back soon!

    This Castello has been haunting me for quite some time now.

    As 'Popeye' it's easy to see why you are drawn to that aggressive looking "jutting chin" shape.

    I really like some of the craftsmanship and beauty the pipe maker known as Silver Gray puts into her pipes and it had to be faith that a pipe she calls the Smooth Canoe would be the one to float my boat, so to speak, should have it in around 10 days or so, regards.
