    I own 2 pipes which have not been smoked, an S. Bang I got in trade for another S. Bang I felt too large for me and a Larryson POY I purchased in December. When better weather comes I hope to remedy this.

    I can empathize on both sides of the fence, but I would smoke it. I've fixed up enough pipes to know they can be restored pretty close to their former glory. I've also found it's easier selling old pipes than selling new pipes (for some reason). Not that you're thinking about selling, but smoking it wouldn't be a hinderance to selling should you decide to one day.

    I love Martins ! Quilted maple ... Yummy ! U played the Guild CD1 by chance ? I had the joy of playing one a couple years ago .. it was explosive and about as dynamic a guitar Ive played or heard , next to a custom guitar . If youre ever in a shop that has one , play it :th1:.. It's my fantasy acoustic ( sigh )

    I have had the same feeling over certain pipes, but the funny thing is, most of them looked nicer to me after they had been smoked a few times. The coloration was improved and they just looked nicer to me.

    I have a L'Anatra dalle Uova d'Oro.

    I don't seem to be having that problem right now. Funny that this is when I should stumble upon this thread.
