Another Roma - a bent billiard with a large bowl. It's also an excellent smoker.
When I bought the 2 Romas, I was eyeing a Savinelli for twice the price of the 2 Romas combined.
I'm glad I pulled the trigger on the Romas instead.

This Roma Walnut is another excellent smoker.
Roma is a side brand of Savinelli. The side in the pic shows beautiful grain but it was probably rejected as a Savinelli because of a dull dark patch on the other side of the bowl. At $50aud, that worries me not.

This Noce Junior Brebbia is a great smoker, one of my favourites.

In soft light it looks like it's an anthracite colour but under illumination it shows streaks of chestnut.

Re: New pipes ......

https://i.imgur.com/VxkkllL.jpg Here's another 1930-40's Cavalier, described as a 'Hunter pipe'. There was quite a bit of competition for the Cavaliers & sitters. I was sniped on a similar pipe so I put a decent high bid on this one. There's an e-bay seller with a very similar contemporary model go...

Re: New pipes ......

Those are some seriously nice pipes. That second one is fantastic. I am not sure I could convince myself to smoke it :) Thanks. These pipes look even better than the pics suggest & yes, I've yet to light up any of the antique pre 50's pipes. As you'll see I've bought quite a few (figuring that ther...

A 1970'S rusticated UTOR Churchwarden made by Uwe Thormann (Looks more blasted than rusticated to my eye)
It has a really slender acrylic mouth piece that looks so much better than the chunky mouth piece on my Savinelli warden.

https://i.imgur.com/a7dvonz.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Q1XDZtx.jpg A full-bent Hunters pipe with a horn stem. Unbranded. The maker is fairly sure it was made in Germany for the German market. This auction followed the Muhlensiepen pipe. Expecting heavy bidding & more snipers I put a hefty high bid & w...

Re: New pipes ......

Yay, I did it, finally! Lol. The above is the 1920's Muhlensiepen Echt Bruyere sitter. There was quite a bit of competition for this one. After missing out on a similar pipe by a sniper I put a hefty high bid on it (Same sniper missed by a country mile) but I think it was worth it & I'm very happy t...
