    Hello everyone,

    Hope you guys don't mind another Falcon pipe smoker joining up? I have read through the forums to get a feel of the culture and fellowship here and must say, I look forward to meeting all of you. I've been a pipe smoker for 11 years and I am definitely a fan of Falcon pipes!

    Fantastic - 3 guys out of 1100. That's actually a pretty high ratio of Falcon lovers to "normal folk".

    Welcome aboard.

    sas, you need to get out more. you've started thinking of pipe smokers as normal folk... try to remember we're less than one percent of a ten percent minority in north america.

    Welcome!

    Slowly Gerry is converting us all into fans of the Falcon. We'll need to petition Woody to make a new forum on the site: FSA - Falcon Smokers Anonymous! :)

    Welcome FS! Looking forward to seeing photos of your Falcon collection.

    My first falcon is coming in the mail this week, I will certainly post photos when it gets here.

    Cheers!

    Congratulations on your first Falcon soon to arrive, what combination did you get? I like the standard straight frame with an Algiers bowl.

    Welcome falconsmoker,
    I hope you enjoy your stay.
    I have a few falcons too, love them. My straight was a favorite for many years while doing engineering work, the robust design just suits.
    Have you had anything to do with the meer lined bowls, I think I need one :whistle:
    Cheers Rolf.

    No Falcons yet here, but my collection's slowly growing and I'm sure I'll have one or more sometime.

    Nice selection Dondi, I'd also be curious as to how well balanced it is, I've never smoked a bent Falcon before all mine are straight stems.
