    Just to get the thread started I must say it has been over 3 years since my last pipe purchase. I know that's terrible but it's the truth. My latest purchase was a Savinelli Black Set 606 edition.

    I bought a new Morta (bogwood) pipe last week, simply because I'd never tried one. It is a stunning piece of work from master-carver Chris Askwith. It looks beautiful, is amazingly light - an easy clench, has a lovely hand-feel and needs no running-in.

    As advised by Chris, I tried it with Latakia-containing blends, in this case my SG and GH Balkans. He was right - the perfect partnership!

    My last pipe purchase is the Celtic Morta Dublin commission that was completed and delivered here a bit over a week ago. There's a few threads with photos of this pipe here, if anyone who hasn't seen it and is interested.

    If you haven't seen the photo of Roth's Morta pipe, search it out. It is more than a pipe, it is a work of art. As for me, the Ashton below is my latest acquisition and I doubt I'll be able to get better.

    There is no beauty without some strangeness in proportion.

    I just ordered a marbled clay Dutch Gouda pipe from Penn Valley(pipeshoppe.com). Just waiting for it to arrive now. So begins the long wait...

    I just bought this unsmoked Radice Rind billiard from SP.com during their estate sale.
    Since my other two Radice's are such good smokers, I couldn't pass this up for the price.

    I jumped on a Stanwell Sixtus billiard a month ago. This is going to be my last purchase for a long while, as I really want to focus on stocking tobacco, not to mention the fact that I'm back at school and have more expenses to think about.

    My new Stanwell (to celebrate being gainfully employed again) was my most recent purchase (well, not counting the Walker Briar Works Forever Stem that I got right around the same time). I'm planning another purchase in the next few months, as I could use a good briar for English/Lat blends...

    As Forums members may know, I pursue the quest for quality pipes at low-end prices, and I think I bagged one
    with my most recent purchase of a zulu/yacht Chapuis-Comoy from tobaccopipes.com for just over (wait for
    it...) thirty bucks. Guys, not a cheapie pipe at all. Nice briar, classic shape, quality stem. I'm afraid I bought
    the last one, but I think the restock from time to time. Other good pipes of that brand in that price range, for
    those of similar thrifty compulsions. Might get a pipe for my birthday next month, who knows? I have about
    forty pipes, which is plenty, though that never stops anyone.

    my latest purchase. Nording Valhalla 200 bulldog. I really like bulldogs without the bead lines. I broke it in with Escudo. The pipe made my first experiences with Escudo very pleasant. I decided to make it a VA pipe. My other VA pipes are a Nording Moss F freehand (below) and a Savinelli Morino Prince. The nording freehand has a deep, conical bowl that makes it great for VAs, and I've also been playing around with layering 2 different tobaccos. I've found that I like a VAPer on top, and a mild VA on bottom (like PS LTF)

    My only purchase this year has been a Sasieni 4dot Walnut.

    Some nights I love it. Some nights I hate it.

    murf, that bulldog is a heart breaker. I like Nording's economy pipes (Eriksens) better than most of his stamped
    Nordings, and I traded off a little Nording billiard as just not being my thing, but the bulldog is a masterpiece.
    I've seldom seen the partially rusticated approached carried off so well. Just a beauty.

    I just made this post for members to post recent pipe purchases, yet I see other people posting similar post, very recent, I don't understand this logic. Are they too good to post on this thread? Or is it that they are not even reading threw recent threads. I do not try to duplicate threads by changing wording, I just wanted to see your most recently acquired pipes together in one thread.
    What gives!

    Non-conformity is the spice of life mate.

    The nice thing about a forum like this, is that folks can generally do what they please, within reason. This assumes the following:
    - Forum rules are followed
    - General courtesy is offered
    - Pictures or it didn't happen EDIT (except for Roth, we make allowances for his lack of camera phone )

    It's the same with the "Show off your..." threads. Some folks will use 'em, and others won't. I'm guessing that some posters like to start their own threads so that they can find them easily, and not have the dialogue around their pipe/collection/cellar/tobacco buried in a different or catch-all thread.

    It isn't personal, no one thinks that they are "too good to post on this thread". They're just doing what they do, and we thank 'em for it just the same.

    I'm sure that's it Mr. Pruss I just was trying to see are read about folks most recent purchases in one big nice cool looking thread. I thought it would be a cool thread to show off your most recent purchases. But I guess I thought wrong. Ill just stop creating threads from now on.

    I just ordered a Brog Kentucky No. 43. Love the shape of this pipe. Reminds me of the old Stanwell No. 11, my favorite shape. And I love pear wood. I'm excited to try this one out and hope its like the picture.

    Love the Briar: please stop coming off like a pouting juvenile. I am certain that's not your intent. Everyone's entitled to create their own thread, for better or for worse.

    The bus happens to hold outside my house and goes here directly: http://www.danishpipeshop.com/

    So what happend was I went by and came out with
    Peterson's Barrel
    Rattray's Butcher Boy No. 23
    Rattray's Old Perth, natural
    Classic poker gr. 3 by Neerup
    Stanwell ECO Canadian Deluxe
    and an Icorona Old Boy pipe lighter

    All of them are good smokers, except for Old Perth. The drilling of the stem seems to be too narrow, as there are almost no "draw". I have to go back and ask if it can be fixed, if not, I will buy a custom made acrylic stem.

    mso, I got the e-mail from milan about those new Nordings. I saw that bulldog, and ordered it later that night. I was still kicking myself for not buying a bulldog from smokingpipes, only to see that it had been sold. I believe it was a Savinelli Standing

    So, I decided to not let it happen again. Like I said, I prefer the bulldogs without the beadlines. I'm not sure why...

    Just picked up a Mackenzie vanguard, a medico conqueror briar, a varsity Rhodesian and a Dr. Charles, all for 40$ at my secret estate pipe place, all pretty much unsmoked, and the dr. charles and varsity are unsmoked totally.

    I've just placed an order for some more cobs. A grab bag of seconds, a Diplomat Apple bent and a varnished Miniature Cob.
    I was looking at getting a nice bent Peterson system but funds do not currently allow.
