Jim, I have to say -- I am in Complete Awe of your collection's huge class & variety! Makes me think of banjo, God rest him.Almost finished smoking Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 2014 Basil Meadows smooth slight bend squashed tomato with an aluminum band and a black pearl acrylic stem in the military mount style.
Poor Stromboli, left alone so long. Shames me. As soon as I get the groceries in when I get home & get my breath back, I'm going to have to get one of mine out. Good reliable pipes they are. Love my Stroms!Enjoyed a tasty lunch, and am a quarter of the way through this bowl of Wilke # 13 in a 1980 black rusticated rough top Jobey E27 Stromboli extra ball-shaped poker with a pearl green acrylic stem. Haven't smoked this pipe in years, and as I need another pipe to smoke Lat-blends in, this former-burley pipe gets that call. Ice water and bergs is my drink on this very warm and sunny day.
