Here is a twist, I know we all have different tastes in our pipes we actually wouldn't be human if we didn't see things differently, i.e. the old saw beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So here is what I am aiming at to see (photos if possible please) the following 5 pipes you own.

1. Your most elegant pipe.
2. Your most perfect to form, i.e. classic shape, pipe
3. Your most unique pipe.
4. Your most smoked pipe.
5. Your oldest pipe.

I will refrain for the moment but I think this will be fun and give both new and old pipester's alike a fresh look at how we see our pipes. Very Happy

I will my good man, but seeing as I have 80+ to choose from it would end the topic before it got off the ground, besides it's about seeing what everyone has because I might want one too! affraid  Wink

2. Your most perfect to form, i.e. classic shape, pipe peterson limirick 150
3. Your most unique pipe. a Kiersten cavalier
4. Your most smoked pipe. Larocca fantasia

Most Elegant pipe was hard to pick but, so it's between the first two a FEC and WDC bulldog.
Most Classic in form: another tough one because I don't care for very many golf club shapes but, I happen to have one, a WDC Royal Demuth Billiard.
Most Unique was easy, sort of. A St. Claude BAP "Avion" Aeropipe.
Most smoked was definitely easy, Mastro De Paja Blasted Bulldog
Oldest was the toughest. I really havent a clue to how old most of my pipes are, was never a priority of mine but, to just guess I'd say the Champagne Pocket Pipe because it's marked Exposition St. Louis 1904.

I really like your Wallenstein Nose warmer but, it looks like it could be a nose burner

Most elegant-Benni Jorgensen Horn
Most perfect form- I've got two, a Jeff Gracik apple and a Rad Davis Liverpool
Most unique- Nording Duck pipe and Walt Cannoy cavalier
Most smoked- Growley Lumberman and Ashton XX billiard

OK I'll play-

1. Your most elegant pipe.

Hard to interpret this. On the basis of form/style/function it's a toss up between Rad Davis, Growley, and Mark Tinsky.

2. Your most perfect to form, i.e. classic shape, pipe

Again, hard to say. All of the above, with honorable mention to Peterson.

3. Your most unique pipe.

No freehands here or unusual shapes.  No answer.

4. Your most smoked pipe.

Toss up, but probably my Wiley Rhody. It's a workhorse.

5. Your oldest pipe.

Probably my Pete 999 Donegal Rocky fishtail from the 1950's. Not quite a birth year pipe but pretty close.


And there ya go..........


Very Happy 



Cheers,

RR

1. Your most elegant pipe. I am not sure I have ever thought of one of my pipes as elegant. This one is probably a none of the above, although if you have several, one has to be the most elegant and one the least.
2. Your most perfect to form, i.e. classic shape, pipe I have a Peterson 999 and a Savinelli 310 KS. To my way of thinking these pretty well define the Rhodesian and Poker shapes. These are standard shapes you can buy off the rack at your local B&M.
3. Your most unique pipe. I have a calabash gourd pipe with a replacement briar bowl that was made by our own Scottie. Runner-up in this category is a Kaywoodie Carburetor.


4. Your most smoked pipe. This one is easy. I have an Amphora bent bulldog that I got in the 70's with coupons from cans of Amphora Red. I would bet my own money that I have smoked that pipe over 9000 times.


5. Your oldest pipe. I have a 4-hole stinger Kaywoodie. It is a model 79, so "Large Saddle Canadian." It has a round shank and a saddle bit, so I would call it a Lovat. This was probably made in the late 40's -> early 50's.

Fishnbanjo, thanks that one was in really rough shape when I got it. I actually had to replaster the shank on her. She didn't smoke worth a hoot either until I mudded up the bottom to get it even with the draft hole. Now she's one of my favorites.
