Wonderful collection that demonstrates the care, attention to detail, and creativity of assembling this fine family of briars. A fine assortment of grains types and pipe shapes. Observing the beauty and endless variety of briar wood is a significant part of the joy of this hobby. Top it off with the search for the perfect blend of the mighty leaf, and we have an endless source of joy and quiet smoke.

Thanks for sharing your collections and happy smoking!

Best regards

Puffer;
I can see from the photos that you take pride in caring for your Pipes.
That endavor requires a lot of time and dedication. The care is revealed in the photos.I also dedicate a great deal of time to pipe maintance, mainly because I like the visual apeal. I dont have to smoke them to enjoy them. Great collection.

cheers cheers cheers

Thanks nosenhoj,

I do take pride in caring for my pipes. They are not cheap, and will last a lifetime if properly taken care of. In addition, I come from a long line of wood workers and I appreciate the look of a beautiful wood grain. Pipes may be utilitarian objects but they are also works of art in their own right.

Puffer;

What kind of Wax/Polish are you using on most of your pipes?

I wipe my pipes down with a soft microfiber cloth after each smoke to remove the skin oil from the wood finish. When the finish becomes too dull, I use unbleached beeswax and a buffing wheel to restore the shine.

All of those are very nice but if you're done with that Il Ceppo in the first set of pics I'd be glad to take it off your hands. Very Happy

That Il Ceppo is my dedicated Escudo pipe and it gets plenty of use!

Indeed, they are quite difficult to find. Luckily, one of the pipe shops in my area carries a few of them.

A very beautiful collection. You have some outstanding pieces and it´s quite hard to pick a favorite, but your Castello hawkbill is really extraordinary pleasing to the eye.

Thanks for showing your pipes and kind regards

That also caught my attention. Kind of unique for a Castello, that stem accent is lovely.
Great collection!

Thanks everyone. I should probably update this thread. The collection has grown quite a bit since January! Lots of English straight pipes added.
