    When you consider the paucity of my actual smokers it isnt really showing off is it lol.
    Mind you until last year I managed with only two as I did only smoke pipes occasionaly
    Anyway here goes

    There are a few others in fishing bags but they are very cheap basket pipes and a cool&sweet model
    Quiz time anyone care to guess what they are some are far too easy but one or two may prove a bit tricky, no prizes just bragging rights for the biggest pipe nerd/enthusiast delete as applicable whoever you are.

    I've never quite understood the 'showing off' thinking. I honestly love seeing people get things that make them happy. And I love pipe porn. I wish more folks showed off their pipes. I mean that's what it's all about here, right? Or it should be anyway.

    I love looking at others collections. BriarBoy has some neat pipe too. I really dig the third one on the top. Ill guess Castello on that one? Nice pipes! Thanks for photographing them and sharing.

    I couldn't either. I found an alternate spelling of Venturi on Pipedia, but no information. Its a nice looking pipe though. It looks well made.

    It is bar a massive flaw where the filler came out when I was cleaning it. I must admit it was filled very well as I didnt know it haf been filled until the nylon brush pulled it out

    Well it looks great with that lighter and tin. Quite the vintage feel to all of it.

    never thought of the vintage look the lighter was a 4 quid thing from a tat shop last week (always liked camel cigs so it seemed a good buy) and the tin was 'aquired' from a none smoking friend a few weeks ago who does house clearances and was on his kitchen worktop full of rusty old screws. i liberated it and use it for a small amount of tobacco

    It is indeed from the post war pre republic years or late 40's if you prefer, it was a present from my wife with the stand. Although she also bought me a hajoue as well which has just sat in a tub since xmas day. I mean it even comes with an adaptation to pop a cig in and risk loosing your eyebrows as it points straight up out of the bowl
