Nice. I have a weak spot for dark rusticated pipes. I'm still trying to find one that smokes as well as an old lacquered Missouri Meerschaum corncob, though...

Nothing smokes like a MM Cob. I just picked up another cob the other day too.

The one above is a Savinelli. I absolutely love it. I'm only smoking Virginia in it.

Despite all the hillbilly in my genetics, I'm still embarrassed to be seen with a corn cob in public. But I do like them at home, especially when filtering one of those white hot Scandinavian blends.

I have an absolutely lovely rusticated group 3 Dunhill with a long stem, with which I love to show off - even hillbillies can demonstrate good taste - but I can't get the damn thing to smoke well at all.

Savinelli pipes are awesome... I know people who have spent 4 bills on some of their higher placed models.

I've had success with the pipes I've been using. All Savinellis and a few cobs. I haven't been smoking pipe for very long. I used to be a cigar smoker until I found the pipe though! There are so many nice inexpensive pipe tobaccos out there.

I was warned this would happen with pipes. While I love cigars, the cigars in my humidor have been aging well

The tobacco is practically free, but the pipes will put you into the poorhouse!

I think that's the most leather I've ever seen in a single photo. Not counting that picture jsharr sent me of his closet, of course.
