I'll make a deal and sell it for $25. It is an unfinished, factory second after all.
As generous an offer as that is, I'll pass. All stocked up on cobs ATM. Really though, it looks like it'd pack a nice sized bowl, something to smoke on all afternoon on a lazy Sunday.

I'd better stock up on the fireplace matches if I want this thing to stay lit towards the end of the day.

Inside is a collection of Dad's pipes, my uncle's, and mine. Some beautiful hand crafted pieces of beauty in that cabinet. Many of them are works of art and some are standard drug store pipes; my personal collection are nicely crafted briar pipes I bought or were given as presents. There is a Meerschaum Calabash in there as well, not sure if it was Dad's or my uncle's.

I felt a little nostalgic and found some old pipe tobacco in a pipe holder I built years ago and packed my Dad's favorite old pipe. I thought the tobacco would be to dry but loaded the pipe, packed it down ever so gently after the initial burn and sat down to enjoy a good smoke.

Don't think I'll be smoking much again but it was sort of nice going back in time.
Dan,

I didn't know you were a pipe smoker! NordeastBrewer pointed me in the direction of this thread. I've recently taken up pipe smoking a few months ago, and I'm really enjoying it.

I bet your family pipe collection is awesome. I regret getting rid of some of my grandfathers pipes many years ago. I wish I still had them now that I've taken up the hobby.

Nothing like enjoying a sweet smoke on brew day!

Sure, blame me. Really though, glad you joined us! Apparently beer and pipes go well together, or so I've been told.

This was my Thanksgiving smoke today. Don't judge me for the Blue Moon!

This is what I was smoking;

Hey Mike!

Glad you found this thread, thanks NB!

My collection is not extensive and consist of my dad's, uncle's pipes and mine. Look forward to hearing more from you on here. I keep trying to sidetrack this thread but it seems to stay on course!

I like Captain Black as well. The Royal was the first tobacco that I bought more than once, it's a nice, smooth smoke. I like it with a couple fingers of rum, but yes, RIS, barleywine, wee's, it goes great with a big beer.

Glad to join you guys!

So far my collection consists of 2 briar pipes. I had a 3rd (which was a cob), but It had a crack on the bowl. I was looking at pipes online yesterday, and it's amazing what they can cost. I saw pipes as high as $2000.00! I'm hoping to get to my tobacconist soon. They have pipes ranging from $30-$200. That's a little more feasible.

Being a wood worker/carpenter by trade I'm thinking I want to try my hand at making a pipe. I can order briar wood and stems online. Who knows, maybe I'll change careers!

I've really been enjoying the Holiday Spirit tobacco that I linked in my earlier post. I have a tin of Christmas Cheer that I'm going to crack open next weekend for the month of December. I've heard good things about it.

I'll buy one from you if you decide to go into the trade. Looking over some of the woodcraft you've made and posted online, I can definitely imagine you as a pipe maker! Go for it brother!
