30? I don't remember. I've given many away, sold a few, picked up random cobs--and there's two being used for a pipe rack my father-not-in-law is making me... *shrug*

Meh...only if you want. I'm at 9 and 3 cobs, and that's served me damn well for the last 10 years or so.

That is a solid amount. I have more, closer to 20 and 3 cobs, but I "only had" 2-3 pipes for 8 or 9 years.

Guess which pipes I reach for often when I don't want to think about it? One of those originals.

Considering out of 30, I have about 10 cobs now, and I don't smoke 10 of the remaining 20 (and two of those are morta), eight pipes in rotation is a perfectly respectable number. I figure my collection would never, under any circumstances, need to go over 42. Why 42? That's 7 days of 6 different types and/or blends (or mixtures) that can all rotate happily while being cleaned and dried, never needing to smoke the same pipe in a given month and not really getting bored.

Plus, the answer is always 42.

Cool

I certainly feel disadvantiged with only 73. One cob, a couple racks of meers and a rack of metal pipes. The rest are briars or alternate woods.

The number of pipes some of you own is impressive. I use my limited budget to try different tobaccos.

My money and my son goes to the University of Alabama. elephant

Just counted and again and I have 27 pipes total. 25 are briar, 1 cob and 1 homemade (by Dreadgerbil) old style alt wood with bamboo churchwarden.

Thankfully I have been too busy and too poor for a PAD attack. Which, more than those to just mentioned factors, has primarily been mitigated by my vary carefully not looking at any new pipes. Which is really hard when I walk into the local B&M.

Those unfinished savinellis are tempting. very very tempting. Evil or Very Mad

Yeah, but to me my Son's education would be more import that collecting pipes right now.

Just think - when he pays you back you can add that money to your PAD/TAD budget. Then go out and buy that many more pipes! Very Happy

Yeah right. But seriously, it is an investment that will pay itself back many times over. It just might be paid back to future grandkids one day.

Dear Gentlemen, you are all scaring me! I am a new pipe smoker, although I have been an occasional (and occasionally heavy) cigar smoker for most of the last fifteen years. I have been introduced to pipe smoking by a friend here in Afghanistan when my cigar supply was running out. He gifted me his spare corn cob pipe, which I am enjoying along with the several tins of tobacco he gave me. Of course, I had to order myself a few pipes and some tobacco samplers. Soon I will have a Peterson Claddagh, Big Ben Presidential, and a Stanwell along with some Frog Morton, McClelland Orientals, and Nording tobacco samplers. Certainly these three pipes will be enough? Okay, so I would most definitely like a Churchwarden. But then that is it! So maybe a nice meerschaum, like the fine Nude Mermaid example I saw this morning on Meerschaum Merchant. Won't that be enough? All right, so maybe I would like to dabble in restoring a few estate pipes, too. But surely that will be all I need. Right?

RIGHT?

Help...

I know a guy who keeps only 7 briars. When he acquires a new one he passes a pipe to a newb with less than 7.

My good sir, I believe the notion of "need" is subjective. Therefore our individual notions of "need" should be expected to be different, and I shall honor your notion of "need". Now, to explain this to our women folk...
