Most of my pipes were bought at very reasonable price.I have been thinking a lot of necessities the last few weeks, and I wondered if I had to trim my pipe collection to 7 pipes. Consider it a "Highly Curated Collection" instead of the common, I WILL COLLECT UNTIL I CAN COLLECT NO MORE.
Take a few of the least favorites, and sell them to purchase something you are really happy to own and maintain.
There's over 30 pipes in my rotation. Every one of them is a good smoker.
It's nice to have so many different bowl sizes from which to choose depending on the blend.
A while back I went overboard bidding on ebay for pipes that I didn't really need.
There's around 20 pipes that are on display that I don't smoke that I would not ever sell [Like the one pictured] but the rest that didn't make my rotation are slowly being sold off on consignment at my local tobacconist at profit.
