i would love to own a ww1 trench pipe. not a issue set they where given but a hand carved trench pipe. dose any one own a pipe or wish they owned a pipe from the past? if you own it pictures and history would be awsome. if there is a pipe you would like to own from history lets hear about it.

Well, this immediately came to mind. But maybe it's better left where it is. What would one do with it? Refurbish it? Then it loses the historical patina, i.e., gunk. Let historical pipes lie, I say. In museums.

LMAO! Let me take a crack!

"ya idk id smoke a ww1 trencher"

"Yes, I don't know if I would smoke a World War 1 trench pipe."

I have to give it to Arky, he is up on his abbreviations! Pretty soon he will be competing with all the social media tycoons!

Arky, I have a clay pipe from the Princeton graduating class of 1896. Its a huge bowl with a very long reed stem. These pipes are very rare in unsmoked condition as the tradition was they were to smoke the pipe during the entire commencement ceremony and then break it over the exposed end of a cannon buried nose down in the quad. While its certainly an interesting piece to have its not something that could ever be smoked without destroying it. If it had been smoked but not broken that would be a different story. I do have an old briar that was probably in the trenches during the first world war and I do smoke it but only rarely as the draw is so restricted it makes smoking it most unpleasant. During that time frame most pipes had super tight draws so don't expect to find one you'll enjoy using unless you modify it.

Arky, I have no idea what the thought process was behind the tight draws. I do know that I have had pipes from that general period with draft holes you'd have a hard time getting a slim pipe cleaner into. Some the only way you're cleaning the draft hole is by shoving a plain piece of wire in the hole. The concept of flow dynamics certainly didn't exist.
