    I have two meers from the late 18th C. and a number of briars from the 20s and 30s. I consider them "middle aged".

    Barring improper use or abuse there really isnt anything to wear out.

    My answer to this question is with another question. How long does a car last? Quaility is just one factor. That said, I know there still vintage Pintos, VWs, etc, that are still around. Care and maint are a big part. Last is use. Any pipe, even the poorest grade or cheapest made will last if not used. For me, a pipe is made to be smoked, so even my oldest "get lit" from time to time
