Out of all your pipes, how many get regular usage?

Last count, 31 pipes. about 60% of the time I smoke, though, it's the BST, the Baki, the L'Anatra. A further 30% of the time it's split between the two Petersons, the Johs bulldog, the two Savinellis, the Astas meer, the Winslow, and the Stanwell Zebrano. The remaining 10% tends to be split up among the rest of the pipes, with two or three getting smoked quite infrequently.

Obviously these figures are all estimated. I'd say, though, that the BST, the Baki and the L'Anatra take the on the lion's share of the work.

They all get regular usage when theyre " out " . After a few weeks I put the group back in " the box " and pull another group out for a while .

I've got two cobs that I keep in my smoking kit, and they get smoked multiple times per day. I now have 29 pipes, but those two cobs get 85 percent of all my smoke time.

I don't have that many pipes, I only have 3 cobs and 4 briars. My MM CG is dedicated to Dunhill Flake, my two MM Legends are my "smoke at work" pipes (MB Navy Flake only), and then the 4 briars are dedicated to English, aros, and whatever else that isn't a VA.

I currently have 35 pipes in my collection. Of those pipes, four of them get regular use. This is only because those four are the only ones that I don't mind getting banged up and they travel with me. The rest of my pipes are pipes I only smoke when I have the time to sit and relax and enjoy.

I have 6 Wilson Co. of UK pressed clay pipes of which three get smoked at least weekly... Three block meers, two get smoked at least once a week while the third, a smaller SMS bent billiard, gets smoked daily, and sometimes multiple times a day.
My Gourd Bash with the meer bowl gets smoked on those times when I'm just craving one of those "Moments". So maybe once a month or so.
I have currently 10 cobs that see fairly regular usage, with my bent CG and my Patriot getting the most action.
My 14 briars get pretty regular usage depending on what kinda smoking mood I'm in on a given day. The GBD Shoreline blasted bulldog, and the Hardcastle smooth saddlebit billiard do most of the english/balkan smoking while the Royalton Bent bulldog, and the Sav Lumberman see most of the aro smokes.
Finally, my falcon with it's 4 briar bowls is my workhorse for when I'm off to work. A full day of work involves 4-5 bowls.. One for the walk to work.. 1st 15 minute break, lunch break, last 15 minute break and if I dont get a ride home from work.. I'll pack up a bowl for the walk home.

I've cut my stable to about 8 pipes. Of those 8 (maybe 10 as I think about it), only my 2 Ozark Mountains are used daily. I smoke the others on a whim.
