Like most long time pipe smokers/collectors, there are many pipes that I have traded away over the years that I would love to have back. Somewhere towards the top of the list would be an early 1980's Clear Dublin,. It was not stamped G, for giant, though it could have been. It was not stamped F for fiamatta, though I have seen Radice's with lesser grain than it had with that stamp. It was light for its size and had a very comfortable mouth piece. I bought it new and broke it in carefully with good Virginia's. It almost never left the house. But one day I took it to a pipe show, and it did not return. I have absolutely no memory of what I got for it, whether cash or another pipe, but I sure remember what a fine pipe I once owned.

Great article. I have a Radice bulldog, it's at the house, but I don't remember what markings it had on it. I know that it is probably not a giant. But, it is one of those pipes that I can set down and come back to ten minutes later and continue to smoke without having to relight it.
