as you look over your pipe racks is there one brand you seem to have more of? maybe it is all brands from one country you have more of? so who fills your racks?

I have 24 "nice" pipes in rotation, plus 8 "Others" which are work pipes, and 1 meer which is a novelty.

Of the 24, I have 5 Castellos, so that represents the highest single maker there, but of my 8 work pipes 4 are Stanwells.

I haven't inventoried my accumulation of approx. 200 pipes in quite a while. DHs, Meers, GBDs (firsts and seconds), and Savinellis probably make up the four largest groups; a dozen, or more, of each. Then we have the onesies thru (?) fivesies. Ashton, BBB, Barling, Bertram, Caminetto, Castello, Colin Fromm (Handmade), Comoy, Charatan, Curt Rollar, David Barnes, Eliot Nachwalter, Ferndon, Fred Garlinghouse (late of Frederick G Pipes), Hardcastle, Loewe, Kaywoodie (two 1940's unsmoked), Longchamps, Mark Tinsky, MF&L, Parker, Petes (including one Pete meer), Sasieni (including a 1920-21 one-dot), Ser Jacapo and James Upshall. Then a hodgepodge of Dr. Plumbs (my first pipe!), Grabows (second pipe), Savorys, olivewoods/cherry/maple woods, various Italians (some quite forgettable!), my wonderful clays, few odd-ball German pipes (seldom smoked), Irish Seconds, several old WDC/CPF etc. amber-stemmed pipes (briar and meer), the obligatory calabash (amber-stemmed and meer-bowled!), plus other no-name (but excellent smoking) briars. I know I'm forgetting some; but this is close!! FTRPLT

A few years back I used to buy mostly Ashtons and that is still reflected well in my collection as the third most numerous brand. I haven't bought an Ashton in six or seven years. By far, my collection has more Castellos and Dunhills than any other brand. Funny thing is, these are not even my favorite brands...

Right now, the operational rotation, the one that I use most often every day, is strong on Petersons (6), 8 KWs, and 5 Ropps Now, it may change slightly as i rotate in a few more Petersons and 5-6 Custombilts, but not much after that change.

My main pipe rack holds 125 of my Bonfiglioli pipes and in the other racks I have 25 more Bonfiglioli pipes. By the number of his pipes it is easy to guess that is my favorites. I do have other special pipes in my collection which include Tonni Nielsen, Ardor, E. Andrews, Von Erck, Rinaldo just to name a few.

This question is forcing me to finally do an inventory of what I have. I will post when it's done. I would guess that I have mostly Italian and American carvers.

The top three would be Jan Zeman, Ardor, and pipes I've made. But Rad Davis' pipes are close behind and gaining steam!

Well, the most represented pipes in my inventory are from the USA, I have twice as many from Missouri than any other pipe in my collection. OK, some clarification is in order. I have two Missouri Meerchaum cob pipes the others in my rotation are all singles. But I'm off to a good start for a year and a half. Here is the list.

2 - MO Meers (English)
1 - DR. Grabow (Aromatics)
1 - Peterson (VA/VAPer)
1 - Abbey (English)
1 - Savinelli (VA/VAPer)
1 - Di-Monte (VA/VAPer)
1 - Erik Nording (VA/VAPer)
1 - Basket pipe (I could smoke chalk in this thing and it would still gurgle after three puffs) (my first pipe)

Most by a single maker = Peterson = 7. All but one pre-1915 through 1948. Mostly billiards, apples & bulldogs. An odd taste, perhaps. But (IMHO) a good one.
