My pipe racks are overflowing, and some older pipes that I don't smoke much are in drawers. One table rack has two pipes in most of the holes. I seldom smoke the same blend or pipe twice in a row. I only do that when I am on vacation. I got into my "current" habit around 1980. I don't smoke a pipe again until I clean it. I like fresh, clean pipes and happily, I have enough that I can do it the way that I want to.

I haven't bought many pipes in the last 16 years. Many of what I have gotten in that time were gifts or I inherited them from passed on friends. So, I don't need to add to my collection, though this Fall I will get a rare Peterson limited run pipe. And I'm always on the look out for a Peterson 4AB, which is very elusive.


More like a warehouse.

My question is, do you already have a 309 with a 4ab stem? No, it's not the original, but the look and feeling would still be rather nice. While still on the lookout for a 4AB obviously.
Side note: most of the XL20s I've seen didn't have the large band like the 4AB or the look-alike 309.

Half way through this bowl of 1999 Edgeworth Ready Rubbed in a 1970s smooth medium bend Savinelli Autograph 5 Dublin with a pearl brown lucite ferrule and stem. Watching Hopalong Cassidy.

I had thought about doing that, but sending the pipe overseas to be fitted and all of that is too expensive for something that still isn't quite accurate. I have talked with a couple of the Peterson people about doing an accurate 4AB, and as there is interest in bringing that model back, they told me they would do it maybe next year. I've been on them a couple times about it, so we'll see if they do it.

Enjoyed some snacking, and am half through this bowl of Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match in a 1978 smooth full bend Dr. Grabow Omega with a black vulcanite stem. This will finish my smoking day. Reading baseball box scores.

A little Captain Black White before the sun rose this morning. Woke up with work on the mind, and a half bowl helped me forget about it.
