5 y/o AJ's Vapers & Anni Kake, and Riccardo Santia Cobs
Those are particularly nice looking Santia's.
Haven't smoked one before; worth the dough?
what's the pricetags on these bad boys?
I bought my first one as an estate and it had been well taken care of and after 5 bowls a burn through happened. I was talking with Riccardo since I was buying a shorter one from him he had me send it back and replaced the bowl so it cost me $70 shipped for new pipe, replaced bowl, tamper shipped from Canada. I love how they smoke, the burn through was about the size of a pin hole but smoke was coming out the side.
Usually around $60 plus shipping.
*Starts plotting a raid on fishnbanjo's place...*
I'll need some volunteers.
Really!? Damn, I may have to make a move on one soon
They go quickly and he won't be having new ones available until warmer weather.
i'll make it a graduation present to myself! accompanied by a massive TAD order.
I was gonna go the Dunhill route but I think I may save that for "first big boy job" purchase
Count me in on the raid !
Do you think he will pay my air fare though ?
Doubtful, but I'm sure it'd be worth the air fare for all the pipes and tobacco to be plundered!
OK, better find my best plundering plimsoles then !
That sounds like a marketable idea... plundering plimsoles!
Seeing those jars only makes me wonder, when will we see the wide angle shots, that show us all of the hundreds of kegs of finely aging tobacco , some in whiskey kegs, some in wine, some in brandy, it truly boggles the mind..
You don't even want to talk about my Whisky Collection!
Maybe we need to go for the helicopter shots to take it all in, was it you or Jim that took over the the old dirigible hangar, just to store your lesser items in?
And I hear THAT is almost full now..
The lesser items are at my camp and my workshop is at a neighbors since I don't have room and he didn't have the money so he, his fil and I all use it.
I would venture a guess on some artwork collecting, and or bronzes too?
You are somewhere between a national treasure and the national museum Sir!
I do have some artwork but no bronzes, although I did come close to buying 1 of 2 made of Robert Traver sitting on a rock with his fly rod next to him while he smoked a stogie, that is a sweet little bronze.
Geez i wonder where a rock cob is going to fit into your collection ...
Tackle Box At Your Neighbors Cabin ( or in his outhouse if i am lucky )
Wonderful Collection you have there !
but i guess everyone needs a good ugly pipe - except jpberg
