Rhapsodizing on a theme suggested by some Beckers, a marque I have admired for some time, though I own exactly none.  I was going to title this post "Outdoing Becker." What better way to spend $500+? Food, clothing, mortgage, or other tomfoolery? I don't know, maybe Becker does it better--more understated or something. Still...

Looks like the check mark you’d make next to the “bucket list pipe #1” thing...if you got it.  Wink

That's it! The check mark look. That's what I was alluding to. In case anyone wonders, no, I didn't buy it. I'll never pay $500 for a pipe that doesn't have a concave button. One of Jesse Jone's billiards ruined me for anything else. But the pipe is available at Iwan Ries, for those interested. Or at least was.

It sure is a hell of a good looking pipe!

I've owned a few Beckers. I really miss those days of heavy trading. I digress. None of the Beckers were bad smokers, but none stood out either. I did like that rustication though. I don't know how much influence this had back then, but I've come to realize I don't care for that sense of dainty shanks and stems. Seems like an aesthetic you either love or hate, no?

That pipe reminds me of one you'd see in one of those stylized 50's era cartoons...you know: smoking jacket, ascot, martini glass, mid-century modern furniture, et al. Probably would have had more appeal to me at one time; not really my cuppa these days, but a beautiful pipe nonetheless.

Dammit Idlefellow--if that's really your name--you just ruined it for me. Seriously. 5)

SP had some Lacroix pipes — “never smoked” — in its French estate pipe section. In it were some extreme rusticated lumbermans. I mean extreme, looked like chunk was torn off the tree and perfectly drilled. I bought one. $45. I liked it so well I ended up buying two more. Same pipe differentiated by the pattern of the rusticated carving. It may seem a bit, ah, impulsive, but I like ‘em. Eye appeal + smokability + workmanship = a place on my rack. No need to ‘splain what appeals to you. As Dubya said long ago, “You earned it. You should spend it.”
