Thank you for having me! Looking to get back into smoking a pipe after decades away from it. I am a large man and would like a recommendation on a large pipe that will be easy to hold and won’t look like a toy. I’m 6’ 6” and 300 plus pounds. I’ve had my eye on the savanelli Hercules line.
Welcome from Seattle!

I would second what Chris Streeper suggested...Boswell. Also, you might check-out Peterson's House pipe line. Not huge, but good-sized.

I ended up finding a nice big bent pipe from Blatter of Montreal. I am so excited to rejoin the hobby. Thank you all for all of the great advice. As I said earlier, this is the most friendly and welcoming forum that I’ve visited in a long while.

Welcome from Spain!
I'm also a big guy but I don't think that pipes should match your size. When I started I also had that idea a bit, I thought big pipes would look better on me.
Instead I like small pipes a lot, they are easy to clench, bring around, they are super light, they can be smoked in a short time.
This one is around 3.9 inches long, I don't think it looks like a toy (at least to me):

G'day and welcome from Oz.

I'm not a little bloke - 6'2 1/2" 90kg - I've got a range of bowl shapes and sizes including small pipes like my little Dr Plumb Dinky [love that pipe]

Could not give a flying pigs arse what others think. [I'm the type who will take my MM cob to a formal function when wearing a suit puffy ] Smoking a pipe is for my enjoyment first and foremost.

Little bowls are good for a quick smoke or for stronger blends.
Larger bowls are good for 'all day' blends.

Get yourself a few MM cobs with a hardwood insert in the base to get yourself started.
A Country Gentleman for example, is not a little pipe.
Or, you could really make a statement and get yourself one of these if you'd like to go BIG;
