VINTAGE!!!!

If you scream it, does it make it true?

"new vintage"? :confused:

It should read, "The perfect gift for the hipster in your life, that doesn't smoke a pipe, and doesn't have a single idea of what a pipe is supposed to be".



(trying to be helpful as per Rusty's admonition in another thread)
It sounded better when the voices in my head were saying it.

I haven't got any pipes that I consider ugly - this Invicta cherrywood* is probably the most aesthetically-challenged, though it's a good smoker. I dislike blowfishes and hawkbills - they just look wrong to me.

*I also think that's a very stupid name for a style of briar pipe, inviting misunderstanding. Leave that name for pipes made from cherrywood, and call them "bent pokers".

I have determined which pipe(s) I find to be the ugliest displayed in the course of this thread. Given, however, that I have nothing to offer by way of a prize, I suppose that the contest must continue. Maybe I'll call an end to it when we reach year ten.

This one I actually own. It was a Christmas gift from my mom. She said it was interesting. It's called The Doodler.Image
