    I've been collecting metal and removeable bowl pipes for a while now and have obtained quite a few. Some I purchased on ebay, some at shows and some were gifted to me. I've got a little collection started and always looking to add more if the price is right and I don't have that particular pipe.

    Thought I'd post em up for you all to take a look at.

    That's impressive, man! Very nice! I've never smoked a metal pipe before, but I'm definitely interested in trying it.

    Very nice collection. Do you have full briars as well or do you just smoke metal?

    I've never smoked one, and probably never will, but I've started collecting them as well. From the looks of your collection, I've got a ways to go!

    Great looking collection! I really like the one's with the thin stems. It's hard to do that in Briar without it being ridiculously fragile.

    A great collection!
    I do freely admit I'm no fan of "Falcon style" pipes but any smoking related enthusiasm gets my thumbs-up!:thu:
    Enjoy all of them!:bing:

    I've been picking them up over the years I've been smoking pipes and I have only smoked the Falcon and the Kirston as far as metal pipes. The Falcon would be my favorite for ease of cleaning afterwards as the Kirston can be somewhat fiddly with all the parts involved, but they both smoke very well. As for the others, just a collection so far, as I haven't tried any of them. Some still need cleaning from purchase.

    I do also have mostly briar pipes, which I smoke regularly. But that being said, I need to lower the count. (My wife agrees :) ) as I have pipes all over the place, including a lot of estates in the shop that I need to clean up and list for sale as well as many of my own collection that I'll be doing the same with.

    The metal pipes are just pipes that I enjoy looking at and collecting.

    Nice collection! The first pipe I had any sort of success with was a Falcon, now I have Briars and Meers I don't smoke my Falcons nearly as often as I should.

    Falcons are actually very good smoking pipes. I've gifted many to friends and fellow pipe smokers. The only one I regret letting go was the bent Falcon I had. It made a friend very happy, but I've since been unable to find one at a bargain price to add back to the collection. LOL So the search goes on.

    What, no Striker? You're slackin', friend. :)

    Nice set of metal! I especially like that bent Kirsten with the grooves in the bowl.
