Dunhill, dare I even say patent era ones.
Hi SableBrush,Definitely Barling. I own pipes from a variety of makers, but my favorite overall remains the family era Barling pipes. They are the result of the best available raw materials combined with the highest quality processing.
Hi Steve,Brands, it seems to me, are anything but a consistent thing ... probably because pipes are made from a product that occurs in nature and irrespective of which maker did the conversion from root to pipe, the raw materials aren't all equal ...
Hi Ranger,I guess I'm too much of a newbie to give a proper answer. I tend to pick the pipe AND the tobacco, based soley on my mood....much like I would select what clothes to wear or what to eat. Being the simple knuckle-dragger that I am, I've has huge success with this method.
