Never regretted moving pipes on to others.. but I do long for a Nording Classic Apple that was stolen out of my car. I had used it almost exclusively for about 7 years before my car was broken into.. they took the pipe and my tin of Altoids mints, but they left the 10 bucks I keep in the ashtray, and all my CDs. I've never been able to find one like it after, as it seems Nording discontinued the Classic line.

We'll, I wish I had a few hundred back . I had collections I bought from when I had the shop . People would come in with a box because uncle Ernie passed or whatever . I didnr sell many used pipes in the shop, so I put the boxes in a closet at home mostly . At some point I had a good many boxes .. cleaned them up and sold them on eBay back when no one was on the internet in the mid late 90's . I mean , in the eBay pipe section there were maybe 20 pipes lol . I sold them for little because there was no demand , though i didnnt have much in them . Anyway , seeing how ridiculous eBay pipe prices are , had I have just held on to them , I could sell them now and I'd be in Siciily drinking wine and doing unmentionable things

I had some cool pipes from back in my... hmmm... green "tobacco" days. :lol: There were a couple there that I wish I kept, (at the very least for the way they looked). I had a fantastic brass pipe from India that was used for and only for the smoking of... umm... some... stuff? you might see in western films; in the Chinese area of town. That pipe was really cool! Actual tobacco pipes? No, I have every one I've ever purchased. ;)

I don't. I've kept all the pipes I've developed an attachment to. 😆

I have never sold one. I have given a few away, and I have traded a few, but I made the decision to give/trade and have not had regrets.

I'm also in the no regrets camp. Managed to whittle my herd down and avoid any second guessing

here's another I miss, a beautiful blast on this Becker & Musico apple. Great flake pipe, talked myself out of it because it wasn't English. Won't make that mistake again.

here's another I miss, the Kaywoodie 2003 Pipe of the Year. At the time it was too big, not English, too different for what I wanted on my rack. It was an awesome Burley pipe despite the Paul Bunyan size. I'll probably try to find one of these again.
