Of the fourteen pipes I gotten this year the pipe on the bottom left wins hands down. Poor photo's, vague description and high shipping from Italy made this a gamble but It's the best smoking pipe I've ever owned. The pipe in the center left is the most meaningful a gift from a close friend/mentor to commemorate my display in Chi last spring.  Shocked

LOL! Sorry about that! Other than a Ferndown and a Clarence Mickes all the pipes I got are Castello's. That one is a very unique short chubby shape 30 kk Collection.  Shocked

I did a little swaping with cartaphilus.. He does some nice work on restoring pipes too. This is what he did to the old Nonpareil I swaped with him. If it looked that good Id had a hard time letting it go. It was A large pipe and I just dont take to the large ones that good.

Geez, all but one of my pipes were purchased this year! Razz But I'd have to say without hesitation, even though I got it in October, my favorite has to be my Growley smooth bent Rhodesian. (With my Piersel straight billiard twins a close second!)



We have some incredibly talented artisans here on this board. I feel very privileged to mix company with such fine folks!

My very best (IMO) and I should say favorite would be the Mastro De Paja Ciocco.
