I smoke one for you Irish in homage to your Grandad! When men were Iron and ships were made from wood!

Those bottom two look very nice. I had my eye on a rusticated Pete here not too long ago, and I passed it up for a Nording instead. I may have to get one some day.

Nice collection of Petes. I have seven myself, three Arans (05, 268, B5), a Dalkey (106), Killarney (106), Pipe of the Year 2011 (rusticated), and Pipe of the Year 2012 (smooth). I'm actually enjoying some Vanilla Cream Flake in the Dalkey as I type this.

Post your pics guys! Would love to see everyone elses collections. It appears after not buying a pipe for nearly 15 years I will be adding a Peterson silver band 80s to my collection. It's really hard to explain to the wife why a man who owns 35 pipes needs another one. Women will just never understand LOL

madmurdoc nice job resurrecting that eBay Pete! FWIW the oldskool Irish Seconds and Shamrocks would be today's Shannons and Arans !
gwtwdbss I prefer bent or slightly bent pipes due to my smoking style / technique . Somehow I always seem to suck up juice through a larger bowled straight pipe on the second half of the bowl and have to use a pipe cleaner to sop it up ( except for my Paolo Becker )
Petes is what I smoke. In addition to the 12 pictured, I have a Preben Holm era Ben Wade freehand, a rusticated Paolo Becker, and a MM Legend bent cob.

Another Peterson fan here. I have 18 of their briars and 8 meerschaums. I love the pipes but am critical of some of their tricks & shortcuts.
