  • Enjoyed the discussion on Dunhill finishes. Not being a fan of “old English wood” I don’t see what all the fuss is about but I know a lot of guys who are really into them.
    Real good display of Paige Sims’ pipes at the Chicago show. I was amazed that an old hippie like him would collect such a wonderful collection of pipes.
    It was good to hear him put in a plug for P&T magazine and the NASPC newsletter.
    I guess if I could figure out how to keep a pipe lit while walking around, I could give it a try.

  • I was pleased to meet Paige at the 2017 NYC pipe show and to buy one of my prized pipes from him – a sandblast GBD 9242. Here’s a shot of Paige holding that pipe.
    Until we started chatting, I didn’t know he lived in Maryland. The Chesapeake Pipe club is quite active and I need to find a way to make one of their meetings. I’d love to chart some more with Paige and see some of the shapes he collects. I’m with Paige in that it is always the shape that attracts me first, and the grain a lesser consideration.

  • Paige was a terrific guest for show 250. (Congrats on that milestone!)
    I have a few “squats” in my collection, including a 60 year old Frank that my father gave me. I like this shape for a short smoke, while walkin’ the dog in the ‘hood. I’m doing my part.
    Thanks for another fun show.
