Just don't drop it or try smoking it while riding a motorcycle.
I have two meers from the late 18th C. and a number of briars from the 20s and 30s. I consider them "middle aged".
Of course all bets are off if you run over them with cars, trucks, bulldozers etc.
...or drop them in the lake (twice!)..................
Whoa! Over 200 years old? Quite impressive.
Barring improper use or abuse there really isnt anything to wear out.
My answer to this question is with another question. How long does a car last? Quaility is just one factor. That said, I know there still vintage Pintos, VWs, etc, that are still around. Care and maint are a big part. Last is use. Any pipe, even the poorest grade or cheapest made will last if not used. For me, a pipe is made to be smoked, so even my oldest "get lit" from time to time
My bad!!! I meant late 1800s! DOH............
My pipes last the whole time!
You realize that there are already a lot of comedians out there, starving?!? LOL
