    When I first posted here I mentioned that I'd post photos of my pipes sometime soon. Now that "soon" has come and gone, I thought I'd settle for "better late than never."

    Here's a shot of some of my artisan pipes. The one on the bottom right you may recognize. ;)

    There's one more artisan that didn't make it into the photo 'cause I was smoking it and forgot. It's a Peter Heeschen Brandy with Black Bamboo. Lovely pipe. I'll post a photo of it sometime soon. ;)

    5. Radice

    Wow! What a great collection you have going there, it might be time for me to add something like this to my (two pipe) collection.

    Actually, a number of places. I'll break it down.

    Left
    1. Rad - Smokingpipes.com. Actually, finding this pipe was a labour of love. I spent about 3 years watching just about everything that came out of Rad's workshop to find the piece that spoke to me. Success! ;)
    2. Benni - Smokingpipes.com
    3. Geiger - Scandpipes.com
    4. Staples - Andrew Staples website: http://www.andrewstaplespipes.com/
    5. Radice - Marty Pulver's site: www.pulverspriorbriar.com

    Right
    1. Bjarne - Marty Pulvers
    2. James - Thomas James is a friend of mine. I got to watch this pipe unfold over the course of about two weeks and Tom was kind enough to hold it for me for 6 months until I was ready to drop the dough necessary to acquire it. His site: http://www.thomasjamespipes.com/
    3. JSEC - James ??? website: http://jsecpipes.com/
    4. Huber - I got the briar from pipe maker's emporium about two years ago. website: www.pipemakers.org

    2nd pic
    Huhn - Saw it on his site, called him up, and had it a few days later. :) Kurt's site: http://www.pipecrafter.com/
    Heeschen - Smokingpipes.com yet again!

    I highly recommend all of these artisans and retailers. Every experience was a positive and memorable one! :)
