I haven't bought a pipe for quite some time. then the Texas Pipe show came around and I attended for the first time. While there I bought a beautiful Bill Walther pipe. All great right. Nope. As you can imagine, like at any show, there were pipes of all shapes, sizes and materials. I found myself looking around online, but not at pipes that would normally interest me. Well, after a couple months time I find myself the proud owner of these three. A Kirsten, a Nording Chrchwarden and a VERY small Pete. These styles would have never drawn my attention in the past. It's funny how sometimes an itch can start that just can't be ignored. Anyone else ever experience this?
