Very very good advice given right here.

I had the same problem with a unsmoked new pre repbublic Peterson I bought a bit pricey and treated it like a treasure - I watched it sitting in a pipe stand. For months. Finally I realized "It's a pipe", for god sake and lit it. Now we are living together in a very harmonious realtionship. I love her, she loves me. (It's a she.)
Well if your going to wrap your lips around something and suck on it..:p:

I own 2 pipes which have not been smoked, an S. Bang I got in trade for another S. Bang I felt too large for me and a Larryson POY I purchased in December. When better weather comes I hoe to remedy this.
We have a very similar taste...you've got pipes of all my favorite pipemakers. Very nice Larryson volcano.

I can empathize on both sides of the fence, but I would smoke it. I've fixed up enough pipes to know they can be restored pretty close to their former glory. I've also found it's easier selling old pipes than selling new pipes (for some reason). Not that you're thinking about selling, but smoking it wouldn't be a hinderance to selling should you decide to one day.

LMAO! I had a Martin D40 Selected Wood series in Quilted Maple that sat in front of my speakers when I wasn't playing it.

I love Martins ! Quilted maple ... Yummy ! U played the Guild CD1 by chance ? I had the joy of playing one a couple years ago .. it was explosive and about as dynamic a guitar Ive played or heard , next to a custom guitar . If youre ever in a shop that has one , play it :th1:.. It's my fantasy acoustic ( sigh )

I have had the same feeling over certain pipes, but the funny thing is, most of them looked nicer to me after they had been smoked a few times. The coloration was improved and they just looked nicer to me.

....just wondering if others have the same problem....

.......my 'nicest' pipe is an Anatra Dalle Uova D'oro that i bought several years ago....
.........but it is such a 'pretty' pipe, i can't bring myself to use it..... i don't want to get it charred up and lose that new look and smell............

.........does anyone else have this problem???
I have a L'Anatra dalle Uova d'Oro.

I don't seem to be having that problem right now. Funny that this is when I should stumble upon this thread.
