If described as ‘indifferent’, i must be doing something wrong
I've never pegged you as "indifferent" to anything, my Canadian brother! :lol:

I thought a group shot of my ABC pipes might generate some excitement. They are all clean and ready for action on the 1st.

So what is the collective noun for a group of brylons? Is it a cast? Maybe it is a clutch? Perhaps it is just a herd like other groups of pipes we thin, etc.

Image
Would the plural be "Brylii", perchance? Or "Brylae"?
Has to think about this...

If you know me, you know that I don't like pipes that look like every other pipe. I'm not one to wax poetic about the grain and whatnot. I like a pipe that is functional and that has a little style.

Ladies and germs, let me present the Yello-Bole Spartan:

Image

I dig it. I like the ample interior bowl dimensions. At first I was worried this was going to be a small pipe. It's not. I like the square exterior bowl shape. Like a lug nut, it's nice for grabbing. The stinger is my favorite (most efficient) shape.

I am breaking the Spartan in with a bowl of Panama Jack Piña Colada, the most lackluster blend in the PJ lineup. It smokes cool and tastes great, the way a wise person would expect from a brylon pipe.

The pipe is not super-heavy. The bowl is not super-hot. Nothing smells or tastes like burning plastic. I haven't contracted cancer from smoking this pipe.

I pity the rubes who won't give brylon a chance and it makes me sad that this exemplary and affordable, durable, pipe material has fallen out of favor. In an artisanal world, there isn't room for brylon. That's a doggone shame. A brylon pipe is a good pipe.

That looks like a decent bowl ID. I like it!

Shes survived attacks by dogs, hawks, raccoons, possums an skunks looking for eggs. Shes a real survivalist but getting old. Last summer she took care of herself but now she hangs out by the door and begs for scraps when somebody comes out. A hawk took the last of her friends this spring and I guess she took it hard.
