There are several ways, if not more, that comprise a seven day set. One way is all from the same maker/manufacturer, another is all the same shape either from the same maker/manufacturer or mixed. Yet another is all birth year pipes etc. I happen to have a few myself, each set by the same maker/manufacturer but I'm interested in seeing what you have and yes, corn cobs count! Regards.

Can't say I have a 7-day set myself, but have seen some fine offerings from various manufacturers. All of which are far beyond my modest means! However I love to live vicariously through others, so will be interested to see what our brothers and sisters have!

I cobbled together what I would call a working man's seven day set. It's 7 Peterson's shape 999's in different finishes. I love it because I always want a pipe with my coffee in the morning - this makes the early morning decision process a bit easier. Anyway, here they are.

Now, that's what I'd call a great 7 day set!

Cool

Keeping my eyes out for the last 2 pipes. This shape wasn't available in a 1 Dot (Brigham Standard) grade, so I need to find one with 3 horizontal dots (Brigham VIP grade) and a 6 Dot (Brigham Straight Grain).

If anyone comes across one of these pipes, let me know! Smile

Oddly, not near as much as I'd like to - it's easier to relax during the weekday when the DW is at work and not able to give me The Look when I reach for the baccy! Laughing

By golly, I'm quite impressed with the looks of these. Gotta be great smokers, eh?

Very nice. I've wondered at times if how they look on a rack is part of the Pete design process. 
They look wicked good.

That's a great set so far! As I looked at it, I kept wondering if the number of dots was intentionally ascending or if it was a happy accident. Now I know what you're shooting for and I'll definitely keep my eyes peeled.e

And thanks all for the nice comments on my set. I think the rack really does make it look sharp, but the pipes themselves are fairly inexpensive. There's no way I'd be able to afford a factory seven day set unless I won a lottery!

I love collecting groups of pipes. Most of my seven day sets have grown. Here are two older photo's of two week sets. These days these collections have grown into at least three week sets and the shape 15 Epoca's are included in much larger collections. I know I have posted these photos before.

Castello shape 30 oval shank bent apples and Castello Epoca shape 15 pot/billiard some of these pipes are very rare pieces. Shocked

I can't say I have a 7-day set from a particular maker. I probably have 7 pipes of similar shape (most likely of the Rhodesian/Bulldog variety). Maybe I'll shoot Pietenpauw an e-mail. I have 2 of his already, perhaps 5 more are in order.

Dave,

Those are awesome groups! Someday I'm going try a Castello. There are several there that really catch my fancy. Thanks for sharing the pics!

Thanks for the kind words. These are old pictures but I am very proud of these collections as they were then and as they are today! Shocked

Dottleman, I love that 999 set. The 999 was a shape I never liked until I actually had one in my hands. I hope to have a seven day set of those some day as well, now. I love my 999.

Now, what I DO have is a seven day set of Nordings. All are quite large, but the rack was made by my brother in law and is massive. It makes the Nordings looks small when in reality they wouldn't fit on my other rack.
