    Don Carlos Two Note

    I notice that most of the comments are coming in from us guys who have been around a while. I have collected quite a few nice pipes over the past 40 years. I acquired my first Don Carlos only about a year ago and agree with jgriff that Sordini is one of the finest carvers of modern times. He...

    Don Carlos Two Note

    Starting the new year right with a Don Carlos two note. This is my second pipe by Bruto Sordini, and she smokes as great as she looks. Getting old has its advantages.

    PAD Strikes

    This Erik Stokkebye sandblast was in a glass case at my local pipe shop (Bennigan's in Boca Raton, FL). The brass connector attracted my attention and I could not resist. She's a great little smoker as well.

    Savinelli Balsa System

    Thank you, gentlemen. It is a wonderful pipe from a great maker, so time will tell if I lose the balsa after a while.

    Savinelli Balsa System

    I recently had my first experience with a Savinelli Balsa System pipe and found it to be a remarkably effective addition. Virtually all unpleasant fluids are effectively absorbed by the insert without any noticeable impact on the draw or the flavor of my tobacco. Any comments from your own...

    Clergy Pipe Smokers.

    I have been an ordained minister since the late 70s. Initially, I felt the need to abstain from all tobacco products. While serving as a prison chaplain, I came to the conclusion reached by many of you gentlemen. Addiction is bad, but the enjoyment of my pipe is good. Should this ever become a...

    Thanks for the comments, Gentlemen. It is a fine pipe that will stay lit for well over an hour with very little effort. Perfect for days when I've blocked off a chunk of time to depart this world with a good book.

    I got this Peterson Meer new in the early '70s. It's been a favorite ever since.

    Don Carlos Rusticated Apple (pic)

    Indeed, I am....and for a most reasonable price on a DC. This is my first by Mr. Sordini and I've always wanted to own on of his pipes. Can't wait to light it up.

    This is my newest acquisition. Bruto Sordini brings a level of class to pipe making that gives me hope for future generations.

    Jobey Shellmor Oom Paul (pic)

    This is my second Oom Paul. I love this shape for its generous size and for the way it fits my face. This a truly comfortable design that has become a favorite addition to my rotation.

    Butz-Choquain Brumaire (pic)

    There has been some posting on this site about BC "painted" pipes burning hot. This is an especially beautiful piece in my collection and one that has proven to be among my best smokers. It's no hotter than any other pipe in my rotation and provides a consistently pleasant smoking experience...
