    Ok, I could not add any text to those two pictures so I will add it here. These are the two pipes a friend is going to send to me to try. They are over 30 years old. Said they smoked extremely well in their time.

    Any thoughts?

    On the second one, just make sure you can pass a cleaner. Those old bents can be difficult depending on how they were drilled. Other than that, enjoy.

    Welcome; are you a regular pipe smoker or will these be your first pipes? If you had whatever is printed on them, it would help establish their original quality and value. They look fine from here but the ends of the stems aren't shown so if they're chewed through, you may have some expense replacing them.

    Enjoy!

    Welcome! Looks like the start of a fine collection. Once you get them, feel free to post questions about cleaning, etc.

    I had to laugh when I saw the title of your thread "Your opinions, please". One thing we are never short on here at this forum is opinions. Seriously, I especially like the looks of that second pipe. With a bit of cleaning they will look fantastic.

    Ok, got these today. The top one says Jarl 1675 made in Denmark. Has a J with a 5 point crown on top.

    The bottom one says The Tinder Box Lara. styled by Lorenzo Italy 119.

    Anyone have opinions now? Excited to try them.

    They are the pics in the beginning of the thread. I can get better ones with the phone maybe but it would take a while to upload.
