    My buddy Sasquatch told me...

    "No matter what you do, if you quit pipes, keep at least one pipe in case you come back to it one day..."

    Well... As much as it pains me to list my Ser Jacopo (even at its newly reduced price) and the il Ceppo (which has been sold), I couldn't part with my Cavicchi.....

    Amazing smokingpipes.com keeps all these pages archived.

    Thats a very nice pipe ! And I dont blame you for holding on to it . I have a giant Wiley ball that I want to take to the grave w/ me . This way in a thousand years when they find my body they 'll say ..." Wow , Whats that thing [ pipe .. lol ] ? " . And someone will do research and find out that we smoked tobacco in these things . Theyll be so interested that the guy'll start growing tobacco again .... and the whole thing starts over :)............ I hope you come back to it again .. and please visit !

    Hard to get rid of everything isn't it? I kept all of mine for 30 years, and now I'm smoking again. I can't believe no one has bought that stummel bum. I'd love to buy that pipe, but I just can't justify it. :(

    I'd agree with that but would say keep at least a dozen!

    Any chance you would have more info on the Il Ceppo pipe you sold? I've been looking for more info, but can't really find anything

    I'm guessing (aside from medical issues) is insanity!

    I had been gone from pipes since 88; came back to them to reduce the stress from caring for my terminally ill spouse; definitely has helped in that department and had forgot just how relaxing they were.
