    I was searching the web for a pipe shape chart----you know like how Dunhill has the number sizes---for the freakin life of me I can't seem to find one with diagrams---I feel like a moron sometimes. Thanks in advance.

    Savinelli has some, but they're not typical names.

    I was looking for one that has the diagram with the number sizes like Dunhill does with their numbers for bowl size. I used to have a chart----cannot find a Dunhill number chart for some reason.

    I found a UTube video put out by Cupojoes. It goes through the sizes from #1 through #6 with the #4 size being about normal. When I speak with many folks they seem to describe pipes in their conversations such as---my new pipe is about a number--such & such. I used to have a diagram that was nothing more than a rough sketch type diagram that had outlines like pipe bowls inside of pipe bowls----side view kinda picture that was the #1-#6 Dunhill sizes. I have asked several folks why they judge, or describe their pipes like this, and find that they tend to compare bowl, or chamber sizes to that scale. Perhaps its just a regional thing--I don't know???

    Some of us have Group Size 5's, some of us have GS 3's (*or even 2.5s).
    On any given day, I never really know what I'll be grabbing.

    It's really no big deal; they're all the same in the cold.
