What pipe brand do you have the most of?

Post by Bloodhound » Thu Nov 19, 2020 3:26 pm

In thinking about vintage pipe brands for Xring04's thread, I started wondering what I have the most of.

A number of brands are represented in my pile but itn counting, I discovered that Comoy is at the top of the numbers.

I have 5 Comoy pipes, 3 Stanwell pipes and 3 Savinelli pipes. The others fall into other brands or baskets or pipes from carvers I know through CPS.

I guess my mind just kind of jumps to Comoy when talking pipe brands...Comoy was the first branded pipe I ever owned for smoking too. Brand loyalty...or I just like em…

Oh well how about you?

Used to be Kaywoodie. I collected the old 4 digit ones and had some real gems. When I sold off most of my pipes I kept one 4 digit carburetor with the patent stamp on it. Near as I can tell it is almost 100 years old.

I still have three Peterson pipes and a few others with sentimental value. A Savinelli, what appears to be some sort of Stanwell from last years Secret Santa, my great uncle's Sultan Head Meer and an old German pipe that was my gramps.

I'm still hanging on to a Bjarne and my first pipe. I don't smoke any of them now.

I've purchased more Savinelli than other pipes- though that comes to 4 total after 20 years of pipe smoking. I dearly miss my Savinelli rhodesian that I purchased when I was 19- it went missing about a year ago when I left it on my porch still lit as I didn't smoke indoors at the time. At the moment on my rack, Savinelli is still in the lead at 3, followed by 2 Peterson's and MMs. My Comoy's rhodesian replaces the MIA Sav.

Once upon a time I had 3 Dr Grabow's. Two were gifted, one was purchased. All three broke- I'm pretty clumsy and any pipe that spends enough time with me will pick up dents and scratches at the best. The saddle mount Grabow's time was the most limited- saddle mounts always seem to break apart easily on me unless they have the built in metal filter. Buying a new Grabow these days seems pointless- $40 seems steep for a pipe I used to grab for $20, even factoring inflation. But man, did they smoke well until I dropped them that one too many times.
