    Hey guys I picked up a Bruyere Garantie and I was very excited to get it and I wanted to show it off.

    Now, does the wind cap affect the burning tobacco? For example, does it make it burn unevenly? Or does it burn slower? Or neither of these?

    Don't know anything about wind caps. I just wanted to tell you, I really like your new pipe. To put it crudely, your pipe is kick ass! Looks like an immediate collectable. Thanks for showing it to us.

    Be well.
    Ol Brokedik.

    Hi All,

    really nice looking pipe and I wish you Many Happy Years with it.

    Some pipe's just have lids for show, but I do use one when smoking outdoors in a big wind such as you get in the hills or the seashore. I use them to control the burn rate otherwise even with a flake tobacco the tobacco burns away too quickly and smokes hot,

    Best to all

    Gerry

    Thanks for all of the responses!

    I got it at some hole in the wall antique store, here in Michigan.

    Nice find you got there. I'm not sure I would smoke it though. Looks more like a display piece, so you can make up fancy stories about it belonging to your great great great great great grandpa, who was a merchant shipper, gone pirate and like to smoke a fancy pipe.

    What Gerry said.

    I find even with a wind cap that I need to cover my pipe out of doors on very windy days with the palm of my hand. But generally speaking a wind cap works extremely well. The ones like yours look some much nicer than those inexpensive metal ones bought as an accessory.

    Nice looking pipe. It has that old world charm about it. I wish you good smokes with it.

    Very cool looking pipe. I searched it on Google and could only find this, which is also interesting:

    Very nice pipe. I definitely would make up some yarn about it like it belonged to an exiled Russian zsar or it was found hidden in a drawer of the "resolute" desk. Tell your kids you want it donated to the Smithsonian when you croak. Have some fun with it! Nice find!

    Ok, wait...now with the understanding that I like historic pipes, and I think that pipe is cool...it is a pipe only a mother could love, kind of like the face of a boston terrier, cute but eeek! :whistle:

    I have had a couple similar to that one. Mine had a chain between the bowl and stem...called a "skiers pipe", I think. The idea was that the push stem wouldn't get lost in case the skier wiped out....
    The wind cap is handy for out doors smoking. Nice find!
