Erik @ebnash. Those are some gorgeous pipes. I love Castello's take on classic shapes and nobody does rustication like they do. Great diverse collection of tobacco too. I can't imagine what you'd be up to if you hadn't decided to quit pipe smoking LOL!
Iím quite sure my renewed vigor for piping is directly related to my knee injury/surgery/recovery. I was just cleared for short durations on the stationary bike for increasing range of motion. I still have months to go, but as I getting closer to recovery, I will be back on the bikes and spending less time piping.
But, this down time has inspired me to bolster my arsenal for cigars and and piping so itís always there waiting for me.
