Yeah man that's not a bad looking pipe. Sykes sure does know how to word things though, lol. "The affordable and rustically handsome Kapet finish," haha, the guy is a smooth talker. I have to admit, when I am wanting a quick opinion on a pipe, I'll look it up on SP and see what their guys have to say about it in that little blurb above the pipe. Even though it's an advertisement, it can still be helpful. And my favorite pipe that I own, my beloved Neerup, won't pass a pipe cleaner. I bought it before I knew to look for that, but it hasn't mattered yet. It's still a damn nice pipe. Peterson is funny though; the draw is very unique to that company in the way it comes through the stem, and they're just generally rather peculiar.
So now I'm smoking Solani 660 Silver Flake in my new-to-me Wally Frank Canadian, thanks to dbwittkopf from PSF. I got a fantastic deal on this pipe, and it smokes like a champ, it really does. I like it better than my Peterson St. Patrick's Day Canadian, which I paid full price for at the B&M. I'd do business with dbwittkopf again in a heartbeat, so yeah, just thought I'd mention that. Mmmm, Silver Flake. Better than cookies!
EMP in a Pete 68, yum
Hal O' The Wynd in my new Missouri Meerschaum bent General with the Danish bit. Now THIS is a corncob pipe!

Hobbit's Weed in the CAO Bent Ball Meer.
Finishing some Nightcap in a Comoy's Oom Paul. Wife is in class and the dog sleeping next to me on the sofa is having a doggy dream and is twitching.
Carter Hall in one of my DG Omega's.
Capt. Earle's Diamond Head in a Thompson bent billiard, with Sailor Jerry on the side. The two seem to have been made for one another.
Boswell's Countryside in a Golden Square Apple.
Esoterica's Dunbar, in my new-to-me Wally Frank Canadian that I got from dbwittkopf. I had forgotten how lovely a tobacco Dunbar is; it's a very nice VaPer which has mellowed out beautifully with several months' aging in a tin with the vacuum seal already broken. It's amazing how some pipes are so incredibly easy to smoke and deal with; this one is easy to fill, light, smoke, and empty, and it has a nearly perfect draw. I love it, and Dunbar was great in it.
Balkan Sasieni in the Peterson 303 African meer.
Tewksbury Nosferatu in the Baglan "Nightmare" Meer.
More P&W 400, in a Squatch straight dublin. I'm going to break into a couple of jars tonite, but I'm not sure what....
3 Oaks Syrian, in a blasted, saddle bit billiard for the TGIF smoke.
