This one. It belonged to Rusty, my friend and mentor.....

This pipe is a Savinelli Autograph 4. It was made in 1972; Rusty purchased this pipe in 1974 when he was still new into pipes. He purchased it at The Bay in downtown Vancouver! He paid $135.00 for it back then. That would be $691.00 in today’s dollars. Would he pay that now? Nope. Here’s Rusty talking to me back in 2006:
One might ask - Are they worth the [then] 2006 inflation adjusted values? Yes for all but the Sav. There is no way I'd pay $540 for any pipe never mind a Sav Auto today. All of my big Calich's and Blatters blow the Sav away in looks grain etc. I console myself that it could have been worse. I was actually debating between this Sav Auto and a higher grade $185 one ($740 in 2006 $). I remember thinking that $185 is too much for any pipe. I'm quite happy with the Sav and it's a great smoker but I still wouldn't spend that today. BTW I have a fuzzy memory of Dunhill Bruyeres being around $180 to $210 at the time.

Here's the most costly (all C$ to the nearest $10 in 2006 dollars):

# Pipe Purch $ When $-in-2006
1 Savinelli Autograph $135 1974 $540
2 Calich G14 $250 1983 $460
3 Blatter Select $275 1987 $430
4 Calich G12 $100 1979 $260
5 Brigham 6-dot Valh. $ 55 1973 $250
6 Harcourt $ 60 1974 $240
(Back to me now)....I had sent this pipe down to Smokingpipes.com and decided after they had posted it that I wanted this one back “home” so to speak. So, I bought it.

This, then, is my latest pipe purchase.

Ok I broke my long time streak of no new pipes, picked up a rustic looking Ropp Alpine on eBay cheap! I love it, it reminds me of Appalachia.

That’s cool, one of my favorite things about pipe smoking is that when I die, my pipes will live on and be enjoyed by someone else, and many of mine being estates, I wonder about the people who owned them before.

This one seems even more Apallachianish to me.
Nice looking cob.

Is that a "Forever" stem?

Nice looking. I should try a large bowl cob sometime. Wonder where I can find the larger ones.

This cob is a collaboration between C&D and MM, it does have a nicer normal pipe stem, but it came with such, this is not one of those replacement stems. It is a really nice cob actually, no filter either. It’s called the Carolina Gentleman.

Bruyere St. Claude. The price seems almost too good to be true. With a 5% discount from smokingpipes.com I got the thing shipped for $41 and change. Most of their pipes seem to be in the $30-45 range.

Peterson 106 - Irish Harp series. I figured it was time to own a classic, straight billiard. I was very happy to find this one at my local tobacconist.

That one looks like it might have a nice wide and deeper bowl. I know what tobacco smokes well in such pipes! GHBF :D Nice pipe!

Very nice! I've gotten to where I love stems of a different color than black.
