I'm just curious to see if we are all hoarders or not. Does anyone here happily go about your life with one pipe? I feel like for how often I get to enjoy them, I may as well just have one.
Anyone?

I am not a hoarder! An undisciplined aficionado perhaps, but not a hoarder. I can't imagine now having a single pipe, but could live with that if needed. Well, I did have but one pipe, 50 years ago....

At 10+ bowls a day, 1 or 2 pipes would be screaming for mercy.
Had one pipe for several months when I first started... but then I came here... Now it's 40!

Btw, I've been in hoarders houses, pipes would be the least of their concerns after the cat crap, human feces, newspapers, old clothes and beer cans.

I survived with 1 pipe back in the 60's, but now own 150. If I had to survive with only 1 or 2 pipes it would be cobs.

Perhaps hoarder was too strong a word, but you know what I mean.
Hmm I guess it depends on how often you smoke, 10 bowls a day would be a bit much for any pipe.

Not me. Even with my sporadic smoking (~1-3 bowls per week) I just prefer to have variety in pipes as I do in blends.

I wish....
I only own about 18 currently, hoping to whittle it down, but then I feel like I'm missing out...

I suppose hoarding could be a hobby, just as some people like to call pipe smoking a hobby! Yes, Mike, know what you mean. We seem to have the occasional hoarder of tobacco, but there are so many pipes out there, that massive collections don't seem to impact us with less than a few hundred pipes. And I am under 100, at least of the pipes I smoke today.

I own 6 pipes and although I regularly browse and window shop, I can honestly say I do not feel the urge to add more.

My problem is I should have gotten a smaller pipe rack. Now I feel the need to fill all 12 spaces.

I can't believe any smoker could resist adding to

their collection
The answer is actually in your post...I'm a pipe smoker not a pipe collector :wink:

I keep telling myself that

I must stop buying, that I already have more than enough, but then

I spot an illustration of something so cool, something so powerfully

appealing, that I just have to have it. I guess I'm one of those

people who can resist anything but temptation.
Thank God I'm not alone...
