I've added a few bulldogs to the rack this year, two of my favorites:

Charatan 109 (I've never seen another in this shape number)


Comoys 331C, this one is in the mail, it needs a little work.



Sasieni Grosvenor Four Dot

Yep, I'm a big 9438 fan. Another is enroute, I hope, it's in the "Collection" album.

I have a 9488 New Standard which is a pot with square shank and stem. It's not behaving like I'm used to by a GBD. It seems as if the only tobacco it likes is latakia blends. Now the problem is I don't smoke a lot of English blends anymore since I discovered VA's and Vapers. So this pipes lives a fairly lonely live here by me. I really feel sorry for the old chap.

I am very fond of the Rhodesian and bulldog shapes. The lines of a Peterson 999 are very nice to my eye and I have one I like despite the small bowl.

Agree. Great minds think alike (Oh Lord it's hard to be humble)

Wow! Such great photos from you guys. I really enjoy the Savinelli 320s in all finishes; it just seems to smoke well, hold well, and clench well. I'm also a big fan of Peterson's bulldogs in the Sherlock Holmes series. They're all such classically beautiful pipes. I don't think anyone can go wrong smoking a bulldog or author.

Some things for you to cogitate --

The Sav 320 author is quite the chunky pipe. Which means it's relatively heavy and, in this design, the bit doesn't get universal praise from clenchers. However, if it's the apple -- make that author -- of your eye, the Rossi 8320 is the same design but cheaper (Rossi pipes are made by Savinelli). Visit smokingpipes.com.

The Peterson 999 and s80 are wonderful pipes and available in either p-lip or fishtail, rough or smooth, plain or blinged up. I own several of each and they are, to me anyway, just the right size and like any tobacco I put through them. Light and easy on the jaw, too.

I'd add to the list the Pete 408 which is also available in P-lip or fishtail and in many different iterations. Its design combines author and bulldog features, and I've seen it described as a quarter bent bent apple with a thick-walled bowl. I have five of these and like 'em a lot. (Well, obviously, I guess.) They're also way lighter than the Sav 320s.

Finally, you might visit the Pipeworks and Wilke site. Carole recently replenished her stock of estate pipes which includes a nice selection of bulldogs and what I'd describe as a chubby Butz-Choquin author (see Estate Pipes-11) for $95. There's also an unsmoked Kaywoodie (SH-10) for $45.

While you're there, check out Wilke's Estate 42 Ehrlich. Pretty nice pipe, huh? As we speak it's on its way to a new home here on one of my pipe racks:-) Nothing like a new bulldog/author, no matter how many briars are already in the herd.

Happy hunting.

Kevin, some great observations and interesting pipes.

This BC is a beautiful shape, look at that grain!



That Erhlich you bought was a great choice, what a beautiful shape



Sometimes I'm turned off from Wilkes offerings as they seem to restem nearly all of their pipes.  This GBD 549 is a classic GBD bulldog, but without the original brass rondell stem, it's overpriced in my opinion.

While I'd agree that the contemporary notion of a Rhodesian is as you noted-a round shank-older catalogues or advertisements of British-made pipes other than just Dunhill, noted Rhodesians as diamond-shanked. Earl

It depends on the whim of the manufacturer. James Upshall calls all bent (and some straight) diamond shank pipes Rhodesians. There is no universally accepted definition of what constitutes a bulldog or Rhodesian.

I have one big problem to solve Question 

I wanted 1 dozen Sav's and took my time to collect the ones I fancy. That has been done.

I also want 1 dozen bulldogs and at present I have 11.

My problem is I love Savinelli pipes a lot and if I buy another pipe, it will have to be a Savinelli bulldog. My dozen bulldogs will then be full but......I will own 13 Sav's. Which means I will have to buy yet ANOTHER Sav to have an even number of Sav's.

To make it even more complicated, I have 12 Sav's of which 6 are Punt Oro's. So if I buy another 2 Sav's, one will have to be a Punto Oro to even out on 7 and 7. But Punto Oro's are scarce and not easy to come by.

See my problem?

Now what should I do? Any suggestions, brothers of mine?

I had a look at some new Punto Oro pipes, locally and overseas. Average price is R1650 ($165). I paid R950 (shipping included) for a new, unsmoked PO about 2 months ago locally. Same dealer, Wesleys, now ask R1700 and more for those pipes.

I'm pepared to pay up to R1000, shipping included, for a nice estate and that's what I've paid for all my pipes up till now. Although I would love to have more Sav PO pipes I'm not prepared to pay more than that.

Added two Bulldogs to the pound today.

This Comoys 331C Pebble Grain was delivered over the weekend.  I still have some work to do on them stem (two bite marks) but it went for under $30 and is in overall very nice shape.  It smokes like a dream.  



This Kaywoodie Super Grain 5183B was listed with a very low BIN and offer today.  I put in an even lower offer and it was accepted.  It's not perfect, but sold for a fraction of what pipes of this era and shape go for.  I've been watching for this shape for over a year.  The pipe was made in the 1930's.  More pix to come when it arrives and I do some work on it.
