Finally a member of the Dutch/Belgian Pipe Smokers Forum decided to make proper pipe-racks for his 193 high grade Winslow pipes (most of them Group A, Private Collection or Unique grade!). Before he had them all in just 1 big drawer! 8O

A case of too much money not enough sense. Why wouldn't you invest in nice racks for such nice pipes beforehand?

I parked my Bugatti in a lean-to out back for years. Until I had to move it outside to make room for the Diablo Lamborghini.

I just want as many as I can grab with one hand...maybe both hands. It boggles the mind to put a $ value on that drawer. :roll:

I don't think the pipes are hurt by storing them that way, are they? It's certainly a compelling image. I like it!

I just smoke them once and then toss them. Ewww, who would want to smoke a pipe that had already been used? Gross.

Funny you should say that as there is a member here who feels exactly that way!

I can't for the life of me remember his username, but he stated that exact feeling about estate pipes several months ago.

Ha, this is my new desktop wallpaper.
You know - cropped in just a bit, that's a brilliant idea! It's the only way I'm ever gonna see that many Winslow's at my house. (I have one).

Did he smoke any of those pipes or just collect them? If not, what did he smoke?
He smokes them all. Once in a couple of months he grabs out about 6 Winslows from his collection and smokes those. Then he puts them back and picks out other ones etc. etc.

I love this rack (funny that as I get older this phrase has taken on a whole new meaning). The simplicity of design and the fact that pattern can change at the pipe owner's will is not only functional, its artistic. Lovely!

I have started storing my pipes a little different. The pipes with Lucite/acrylic stems go in a rack, but pipes with vulcanite stems get stored in their pipe socks in a cabinet with drawers. This keeps them from oxidizing which they will do over time if they are out in the sunlight. That being said to pile them in a drawer where they will get all scratched up is just wrong.
