Interesting. Just drawn to the art of the pipe? Is there a shape or Maker that you follow? Love my cobs but smoke both, cob and briar
My favorites are Missouri Meerschaum .......the Egg's are undoubtedly my favorites but impossible to get the last couple years.I smoke a Country Gentleman and Diplomat most of the time.Grab you a handful of these and a couple Forever Stems,load up your favorite virginia or vaper and don't look back.

Cherry...........I don't think so Homer.All of my briars have been smoked......I'd equate it to a 10 year old Buick with 1200 miles on it.

I just pulled the trigger on one of the Mitchell Thomas pipes. It's a straight with a slight bent stem and looks similar to the bent one that is pictured. The site no longer lists it, so they must have had only one. I think it will make a good flake pipe.

Brylon is like nails on a chalkboard.
Brylon is the working man's Meer. It doesn't complain. It delivers what it is called upon to do.

Solid as bedrock. Reliable as a good friend. Trusty as an ugly dog. Flawless as a clean conscience.

A briar pipe comes from a plant. A brylon pipe is a work of science. If nature can be perfected, brylon is the answer. Is it perfect? It is no more perfect than anything else found in nature.

Cool when not abused. Hot when overused. Heavy in a clench to the weak-chinned. Light in a clench for those with a solidly set square jaw. If you've got muscles for palavering, you have enough muscle to clench a brylon pipe. Do you kiss your mother with that mouth? That's a mouth fit for brylon.

Smooth as a baby's bon-bon. Engineered to be itself without frills. No fancy-pants, the brylon pipe can be dropped from an airplane without a parachute and without a care. When some farmer finds it in his field, he's got a good smoker.

Wet your fingertips and run them lightly atop the rim of a clean and empty brylon bowl. Lean your ear in close. It will sound like this:

I run a small hotel in New Orleans. It's in Louisiana, in case you're thinking of another New Orleans I've never heard of.

I was sorely tempted by the Lacroix 908 he has on the site... But I bought my first custombilt at the pipe meet today so I passed.

I'll have to check these out. Always nice to look at pipes that I could likely afford if I find one I like.
