    Recently got the photobucket ap on my phone and I've also been getting into pipe smoking recently, so I thought I would put up a pic of my current collection.
    [​IMG]
    From top to bottom:
    1. Peterson classic billiard briar
    2. Unknown brand meer, the carving is very poor quality but it smokes great
    3. Petersons outdoors pipe (great little one to carry in my pocket)
    4. Peterson elegant bent meer
    5. Blau brand briar (friend bought this for me as my first pipe)
    6. Peterson Irish harp briar (my first pipe I bought myself)
    7. African briar with wooden stem (friend got it for me when he was in Africa)
    8. Really cheap cob from the corncob pipe shop (again a friend got this one for me)

    I have a couple of mm cob pipes on the way, my next pipes I'm hoping to get are a savanelli church warden, a nording giant sized, and a peterson bulldog. I have a thing for petersons.

    I started out with 2 little Dr Grabows. Cobs are a new pipe smokers friend.

    I started with a beat up french briar and a pouch of Amphora (red).

    Edit: Sorry, the French briar was pipe 2. The first was an Arlington Billiard with a hairline crack in the bowl.

    Enjoy your journey.

    The #4 is the "professor" (Moriarty) from the Sherlock Holmes series.

    I got that as part of the ebony and ivory set from petersons, on the box it called it an elegant bent.

    Thanks guys! And yep, it's time to start stocking up on tobacco. I've been ordering a few ounces of this and that to keep trying lots of different blends. And then I've been stocking up on the ones I've really liked.
    I need to try and find some of this carter hall?? That everyone keeps mentioning, also my friend won't shut up about brandy wine but I can't find it anywhere.

    Carter Hall is an "OTC" (over the counter) tobacco, what the old timers call "drugstore tobacco."
    You can find Carter Hall at Rite Aid, Walgreens, etc...
    It's inexpensive and very easy to smoke. Some love it, some hate it. I love it in a cob- few things I like in a cob more to be honest. It's a very old, blue-collar, daily smoke for lots of old-geezers, and some geezers in training.
