Ok, I have several Calabresi and Calabrest pipes. I have no idea how but they seem to gravitate to me. As I understand it, the "Calabrests" are the seconds of the Calabresi line which may be a second in and of itself. Here is my question/thought/comment; am I the only one that likes these pipes? I mean, I find them to be affordable and of good quality. I have yet to find one that is not a good, or even an exceptional, smoker. Sure, they may not be a Peterson or a Dunhill but, so far mine are very good. Yet, I never hear any mention of them on forums and there is next to no information on the net. Just curious as to whether I have wierd tastes in pipes or not. It wouldn't be the first time I had strange likes for things others bypass (hence the Martini-henry hanging on my wall and my absolute LOVE of my M1911).
