That’s a beauty.
My kind of pipe, for sure.
Just saw this pipe...or the picture of this pipe...Man that is a beauty...classic!

An early and severe test of my New Years resolution to simply enjoy the pipes I already have
Again? I have to tell you that you ain't seen nothing yet in terms of severity. The problem is really that pipes are like trains. There's another one along every few minutes. So you really need to stop shopping too. I know. Shopping is not buying. It's innocent. And we like to look at pipes. But wait and see. The shopping goes too. Within about 6 mo. your whole attitude changes. You shop a little just to see what's out there. Every pipe you see is either a duplicate or inferior to something you already have. So you figure 'I'm cured'. Nope. If you shop you will find pipes that you don't have. That steel will is now put to the test again. And I'm sorry to say that it doesn't really change. This will happen again and again. I have friends that sold their pipes so they could go buy more. It's craziness. As long as you're not shopping pipes you're fine and you're delighted with your own pipes. But you also know that if you shop... Ten years in 2018 since I bought my last pipe.

I find that the pipes on CPS are fine. I enjoy the CPS pipe discussion and the pipes people bought. It's like not coveting their wives. Not hard to say 'not mine'. The interest in pipes doesn't go away. I was tempted by the Darwin. But ... if you shop...
