I've never really cared for the squat bulldog with the tapered bowl but I do like a big tall saddle stemmed straight like this Ser Jacopo I have:

Smokes no different than a billiard to me.
Sweet Mary and Joseph , man .... I bet that is such a wonderful pipe :o

Covet, I covet. Showed that Jacopo to my Mastro and now it's crying about being lonely. They belong together....

I used to like the bulldog, but I cannot get into pipes with geometric shapes outside circle and oval. Square shank billiards don't do it either.

My style is drifting toward the organic shaped Danish inspired offerings, but I still have a soft spot for traditional English shapes.

OK I'm just a simple sod (i.e. no anorak :geek: ) and for me 'beauty is in the eyes of the beholder' so if a pipe looks good and fits the hand well
I might buy it and see how it smokes, if it doesn't smoke well I'll save the stem and 'bin it'
I've no interest in the maker or shape :shock: just how it smokes for me. Heres's a few I' ve kept

I'm a traditionalist by nature so anything modern or artistic is not for me. While I appreciate the endeavor it takes to make such a pipe, never in a million years.

Oh and no bright or garish colors. I'm a child of the 80s so I had my fill of neon and pastel colors.

I've always planned on taking a picture of my collection but that means I'd have to pull it out and put it all away. Lazy!
