PostSubject: Poker pipe   Thu Jun 28, 2012 2:57 pm

The poker pipe shape has been calling me for some time. I looking to find a poker priced below 80 bucks. Any ideas? I have been drooling over the boswell pokers, but they are just too too much money for me currently.

Thanks

Luke

I have a David Jones poker and it is an excellent smoker, if you like large pipes.
He has two on now:

Sometimes they shoot past $100, other times they don't. Heck of a pipe deal, by my experience (mine was $87 I think?)
(wow, that was a bad picture, here's a better shot)

Put Stanwell 207 in your browser. I've had the basic smooth finish Legend model for years and like it a lot.

Luke, have Ocelot make you a poker. I vote for that notion, too. Cool

Hell, I'm tempted to ask him. Laughing

I love poker pipes. They're not as easy to come by anymore, and there's something rustic, elegant, timeless and different about them.

Also, Doody, that Sav 310 is a head-turner. What a stunner. Cool

I agree with Kyle. I have been eyeing a poker for awhile now and may have to have one made.

If you count MM Washington cobs as a poker (which I do) I have three. The other one is made of morta. The fact I don't have a briar poker (yet) is something I should change. Cool

I own two little Stanwell featherweight pokers, one blasted one smooth. They are the perfect little flake pipe and are nice for driving because they are so light. I also have a wessex poker that looks great but unfortunately smokes pretty blah. There is something elegant and simple about that shape that makes it pretty appealing.

I've got the exact same one! It was the second poker I bought and my first Savinelli.
My first poker is a real ugly La Roca from my local B&M, it's got a small bowl but it was the first pipe I could smoke all the way to the bottom.

Ok. Is there a section on the site that I can post pics of the new pipe that everyone can see except Kyle?

Seems like that would be a fun section.

We could create an aros section, he'd never go in there. Wink

It would be interesting to see the work in progress though.

Harlock, it ain't personal, I just hate your beautiful pipe pictures. Everyone knows that. Razz

It's funny: some guys get pegged as "aromatic only," here I am the "fervent aromatic hater." Ah well...better than being an "aromatic only guy." lol! Hehehehe. Razz

Aromatics? Somebody Call?

Nevermind, I also occasionally enjoy Va's, VaPer's, Lat's, and most combinations of these blends thereof.

So much for me being the 'Aromatic Only Guy'....
Nice idea though. Cool

No, seriously...it might not matter. Ask Storm_Crow. The guy, for whatever reason, is the first one I think of when I start reading people's notions of "the aro guy." He smokes a lot more than aros, everyone knows it (I think) but yet, I say I don't like a particular aromatic, I suddenly get the pendulum-swing opposite tag. Laughing It's funny...must be the Internet. Then again, I have so much Borkum Riff, I must like it! cheers Razz

Kind of like how a guy can't unwear that dress, just that once, when drinking with co-workers. Laughing You get pegged forever. Laughing

It's not fair. Solution: rage quit.

Something to watch for in a poker -- The pipe's base can't be perfectly flat, lest the pipe's imbalance causes it to use the mouthpiece as a "cane" to stay upright. Two of my three pokers are slight bents to alleviate the balance problem. I think balance when set down must make the poker a deceptively tricky pipe to carve.
