Growing up, my father had several pipes... At some point my mother disposed of all of them-I assume because he was fond of them (they divorced while I was at college and it was a nasty one).

I managed to find a pipe rack in his home after he passed away. But I dearly wish I could find one of his pipes. There are rumors that she may have given them to someone in the family years ago, but I've never been able to discover who...

Even a cheap pipe, that once was my departed Dad's, would be a treasure...

Normally, I don't like bents. This one in an exception.

I confess to coveting the heck out of this pipe.

Yes.

I've never owned a Blue Riband of any sort. Always wanted one. Besides the finish, I like this particular one because it straddles the Liverpool/billiard line well. I'd call it a long, pencil shanked billiard.

Beautiful.

Really, the previous three pipes are all in my wheelhouse. Very nice.

This is the Audrey 1 by Slowtoke. I am not cool enough to own it but that right there is a pipe.

That's an unexpectedly nice Nørding. I usually find Nørdings to be clunky.
