It turned out to be only a two-pipe problem

I posted on an earlier thread about the unsmoked Peterson Sherlock Holmes Baskerville I acquired. It was smaller than I expected, and although it is a beautiful pipe I feared it would just languish in the rack since I prefer larger pipes. Fortunately, a Brother here who favors smaller pipes took a liking to it. Short story: he's now the owner of the Baskerville, and I have replaced it with a Pete SH Rathbone. The Baskerville is in the terracotta which I really liked and the Rathbone is in the dark; not as attractive. Still, its size is more in my wheelhouse. I hope the Brother loves the Baskerville (he's overseas and it may be a while before he sees it); I'm looking forward to the maiden voyage of the Rathbone...

Glad you got it sorted, that Rathbone did look nice.

I've been looking for some smaller pipes, maybe I'll check out the small SH ones

I've become a fan of larger pipes. My Don Carlos 2 note is a perfect example. It's a bent dublin, and the bowl is over 1" wide at the top and over 2" deep. With Urban Cowboy I can get almost 2 hours from it. Been searching and just don't see many that large.

You might look at the pub pipes and house pipes various makers produce, Ranger. Peterson makes them, and I know others do, as well; I just can't think of who right at the moment.

Pre dinner smoke of Benediction in a Design Berlin rusticated bent egg. Hot orange spice tea on the side. Had xrays this am. Good news is no fractures of ribs or spine so must have just pulled a muscle.
