I have around 11 pipes left in my collection; however, I only brought four with me to Kenya because I was unsure of the situation and did not want to lose any. In any case, the picture below is of the four troopers I brought with me.  I'll probably change them out when I head back to the States in May.



From top-to-bottom:
1. Luciano rustic sandblash sitter
2. 2012 CPS POY Savinelli Apple
3. 2013 CPS POY collaboration cherrywood (Nate King, Wayne Teipen, Simeon Turner) -- to clarify, the blocks are from Luciano, the carving, sandblast, and stem fitting is by the three above)
4. Nording Royal Flush King blowfish
5. The pipe case is a Safferling roll-up case (gifted by a friend before I left the States)

I was also limited in bringing tobacco (only 250grams unopened allowed per person) but I won't bore you with pictures of those.

Nice - the case is awesome too - could use one like that for my vacations - I always stress about which pipes to take, how to pack them, etc. - and then 'running out' of tobacco while I'm away!

Look like a fine bunch of smokers, I must have missed something, are you posted in Kenya or is it a business trip, 250gm for over 2 months smoking, some serious rationing going on there, best wishes for your health and safety out there.

I've mentioned it in passing but never posted exclusively about it; I am a missionary here in Kenya with my wife. I brought 500gr total, sticking my wife with some, and was also able to pick up two tins in Israel not long ago.

That would be a difficult choice, deciding on 4 pipes to travel with for an extended time. Looks like some great choices.

Thank you, sir. I smoke 'em, then clean 'em, and then put them pack in their pocket.

My pricier and more cherished pipes were left behind, but these four have become dear to me in a different way.
