I have enough pipes for them to get adequate rest in between. I even have enough good smokers to rotate them on a weekly basis. But darned if there aren't one or two in the bunch that I reach for first and have to chastise myself for even considering smoking it so soon. My new estate Georg Jensen is just such a pipe.
