I have enclosed the pictures of the pipe I had spoken of before. It is a Large Billiard that was given to Carl Ehwa Jr. by the Savinelli Pipe Co.. It was in appreciation of his having mentioned their Co. several times and using their shape chart as well as displaying several of their pipes in photos.

The year would be 1974 or shortly there after since his book, "The Book of Pipes & Tobacco" was published in 74. This was of course several years before the McClelland Tobacco Co. was founded in 1979. Many know that he and his wife, Maria were founders of the McClelland Tobacco Co..

In addition the dedication of the book reads, "For my grandfather, Dr. W.C. McClelland, and my wife, Maria- without her help there would be no book" Today Maria is known as Mary McNeill.

Carl brought the Savinelli "Mon Ami" pipe to my attention, because at that time I had my own pipe shop in Kansas City, and it was his hope to trade the pipe for several pipes that were better suited to his preferences. This is a large billiard shape and Carl was just not comfortable with the size. We made the trade and the both of us were happy with our new pipes.

The pipe is 80% straight grain and of course there are no fills or defects in the briar. I have smoked it several times since the year of obtaining it. It is a very prized possession and one that never ventures outside or far from its rack.

The last time I looked at a hallmark book, the pipe was manufactured sometime in the '40s. The box, pouch, and packing tissue are all intact. The advertising/marketing information on the inner lid specifies that Barling is naturally aged briar, not hot oil treated like some other pipes (Dunhill).

I have always been fascinated with the texture and shape of driftwood that I'd find strolling along the beach during summer vacations. It took a few years to merge the idea of carving a pipe that would resemble a piece of driftwood. I finally got the nerve and the finances to ask Mark to design such a pipe for me. While doing some research on different pipe shapes, and to my surprise, I found a picture of such a pipe on the internet. And it was done by no other than Mark Tinsky for a man out in California a while back.

I contacted Mark on August 9th with my idea to create a new one. He thought the "Driftwood" concept was very interesting and should do more of them. I explained the changes I wanted made from the one he did before. I wanted to see more natural wood on the bowl, with a larger bowl and thicker wall. I am a puffer and can heat up a bowl in no time at all, and the thick 1/2" walls and carved design will insulate the heat.

My favorite shapes are bits with a quarter bent. I also wanted a piece (godet), that came between the bit and the shank to be white in color to resemble bone that sailors would carve a scrimshaw drawing. We discussed the color of the bit and Mark suggested a tortoise color to compliment the Natural finish of the pipe. As the pipe is smoked, the wood will gradually darken giving more character to the pipe as it ages. I also wanted the pipe to be able to sit by itself when I would put it down.

He sent a picture of the finished pipe for my approval and on September 1st, the pipe arrived. It is a large pipe, 7 inches long and 2 1/2" high. I should be able to smoke a large bowl of a favorite English mixture for a good hour and puff to my hearts content with out the fear of house fire.

I am very pleased with Mark's craftsmanship and his wanting to create your dream pipe the way you imaged it to be. And he is not satisfied until you are. He said it was a fun project and it was fun for me too!

This is a DUNHILL DR **** (4 STARS), one you hardly put your eyes at.

Well, we all know that the most collected pipe brand in the world is Dunhill. I have only read about the DR Series, and I never thought I could have one because of its price and rarity !

One lucky day, I faced one over the net, and immediately, sent an e-mail ordering it. A day after I received an email message telling me the pipe was sold to a doctor that ordered that just in the day I sent my order, and as I live overseas, Brazil, my order took some time to reach the owner, and I lost the chance that could be the unique one in my life.

And then I won the lottery ! That doctor returned the pipe back because he thought it was a small pipe for him, although I can tell you that pipe is a full Group 5, and guess where that DR4 stands now...

This is "Goliath". Expertly hand-crafted by Bill Braddock and appreciatively smoked by Cary Allard. This pipe is huge! I had Bill make it especially for me. I told him I wanted a big pipe and I got one. He said he didn't want to make it so big, but it got to a point where he just could get any more wood to come off. The pipe wanted to be big. It has a one inch tobacco chamber, will hold what must be half a pound of tobacco, and will smoke for a couple of hours on a bowlful. I love this pipe! It is one of three Braddock's I lovingly own and smoke.

I hope you and everyone else likes this pipe and will check out Bill's wares. His pipes are excellent!

This is Viprati's "Dropshadow" (19.5 cm long, 6.8 cm high, with a 5.3 cm bowl depth), from his Collection Series, acquired during the ASP2 Group Purchase. It's a rather unusual and striking pipe, given the shape, size, and grain. In addition, it has a cumberland bit and the top is fully and exquisitely bird eyed. Like my other Viprati's, it has proven an excellent smoker and a great addition to my collection.

If anybody has any idea as to it's time or place of origin I would like to hear from them. There do not appear to be any makers mark on either the pipe or the case; only the gold lettering on the inside of the case "genuine meershaum" and "genuine amber" in english. The pipe case is five inches long with the pipe itself approximately a half inch less.

Attached is a scan of a pipe I recently acquired. It was described as an unstamped Comoy's Court. The seller claimed that it had been purchased while on a trip to the factory. As a result there are no stampings on the pipe. I was wondering if anyone is familiar with this brand/type of pipe being made by Comoy? It seems both larger and different from what I expect from that company. Any help would be appreciated.

This is a picture of 2 pipes that Steve Weiner recently made for me. Steve isn't just a pipemaker; he's an artisan of the highest degree.

I met Steve at CORPS 98. One of his pieces really caught my eye but the price tag for an 'unknown to me' pipemaker was just a little too much for me to bear. As I was leaving the show after 2 days, I again passed his table (for about the 100th time) and of all the pipes he sold...my favorite was still there. I stopped, took a deep breath and bought the pipe.

That was a VERY lucky day! I now own 4 of his pieces and I'm buying more. Steve Weiner and his pipes are TOP NOTCH. Try one and you won't be sorry!

I am the owner of two pipes that have been in my family for at least three generations.

The story behind these pipes is that my Grandfather brought them from Budapest Hungary about 80 years ago. It seems that one of my Grandfathers great, great, great, grandfathers recived three pipes from a Hungarian Prince. It seems someone in the family had done the prince a great service.

Sometime in the 50's, my father traded one of the three pipes for a household full of furniture. I own the remaining two pipes.

If anyone out there knows anything about them or their worth, please email Bill at [email protected] Enjoy the pictures!!

I was carving this block of plateau briar, (from the American Pipe Smoking Co.) intending to make a freehand when I had to stop. I could not bring myself to cut away any more. This grain is so perfect, I left it as is. The picture shows only one side but the grain is just as even all around. It sits unsmoked in front of my pipe rack where I can admire it this beautiful piece of Briar.

At the risk of being hideously self-promoting, I thought I'd offer up a couple of scans I did of my first highest grade pipe. I was literally wondering if I'd ever make one of these, as I've only seen one other block of wood in 4 years that was good enough. I didn't want to fill up your email box with 2 huge scans, so I posted them to my site. Take a look if you get a chance, and use them if you like. This is number 1 of the M grade, representing the best (current) work of Talbert Pipes.

When I graduated from college last year with my masters degree I rewarded myself with this pipe. It is a Castello Collection Greatline KK with a stone inlay on the shank. Needless to say, I fell in love with the grain! This pipe is actually used as an example on Castello's website. I find it interesting to compare the pictures of it now that it has been smoked to the photo on the Castello site when it was new. The contrast of the grain has really improved with smoking!

While I was browsing several locations in search of a new pipe to add to my collection, I came across this Brant pipe, that was being auctioned to the public. A unique looking pipe in a freehand with real horn ferule, quite a magnificent pipe. Placing several bids on the pipe, the price was going up and the bidders where placing fewer bids. It came to a stand between myself and one more gentleman, his bid was place, then the count, going once... going twice..., I then chance and placed my last bid in hope it would be the winning bid and the end of the auction, deafning silence, as I was hoping to win this pipe, the count begins again, going once... going twice... gone, the hammer strikes, time has elapsed, it took a while for me to grasp the reality that the pipe was mine, I had won the auction. The pipes nomenclature is crisp and as new, the following reads, Fred Brant, Full straight grain, Hand cut in denmark. The grain is as magnificent all around the pipe, smoked very little, this remains the centre piece of my collection. This pipe was purchased during the summer of 1999.

This pipe appears to be nothing special. It has been smoked quite a bit and you can barely make out the words "WILLARD IMPORTED BRIAR" on the shank. The stem was obviously taken from a different pipe and the end has been chewed completely off. It is not in very good condition. The unique thing about this pipe is its previous owner. This is the pipe smoked by my great uncle Britt Dickens. Britt was a gunner in a squadron of five Avenger torpedo bombers whose last training mission in south Florida was designated as "Flight 19". Maybe you've heard the story. Turns out that the squadron made a wrong turn towards the Burmuda triangle and never came back. Maybe someday Uncle Britt will return to claim his closest companion "Willard".

We were playing with him in the backyard a few years ago when my lit pipe dropped from my mouth during all the excitement. He was pretty wound up from playing and he grabbed my pipe and started racing around with it in his mouth. He finally settled down for a moment when my wife snapped this picture. Not really an expensive pipe, but it's a funny picture. Thought you might like to use it.

Made in 1890's by Einar Johaneson, a former Danish Royal museum curator who was kidnapped by smugglers, and lost for 10 years. He surfaced in Iceland where my family befriended him and came by thes two of a kind pipes. If you are interested in this story, please contact me by e-mail. - Thanks

I have an antique pipe that I believe is meerschaum, it is in its own case, brown colored, with red velvet interior. It is a reclining musician, light tannish or golden brown. The words "GRANTI ECUME ET AMPRE" *VERITABLE*, is embossed in gold on the inside cover of pipe case. Do you have any idea how old this pipe is or what it is worth? This pipe has been in my family for many years and we are curious about it. Any information you could give us would be great. We are enclosing web cam pictures. As you can plainly see the small stem is missing.

I'd like to offer the next image as the Front Page Image. It's a portrait of a Serbian writer Milorad Pavic. He is worldwide famouse writer, whose books are translated into 67 languages, author of "Lexicon Cosri", "Damaskin", "Last Love in Constantinople", "Eternity and One More Day" ( most of them are of that kind of books that are read so naturally while smoking a good evening pipe ... ). And, as I just found out, he's a pipe smoker.

Loved your web site. I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction. I have a very old clay pipe. I found it in the bottom of an old box of archeological pottery finds . All that the box said was Eastern Mediterranean 500-1000 AD. I know that this isn't a regular tobacco pipe , But it was free and definitely genuine. The detail work is quite high with a strange pattern of symbols that are impressed into the octagonal shaped clay. It is 2.25" long and 1" high and has about a 45 degree uplift tilt to the bowl. Any ideas on some resource sources for this really ancient pipe? Any ideas what was smoked in it?

I just wanted to share this unique pipe cabinet, made by a craftsman in Michigan and commissioned by my wife as a Christmas gift, while she still was tolerant of my pipe smoking. Since she quit herself, well, you know, there is nothing nastier than a reformed anything, and smokers who quit are the worst. She came up with this idea when I was frustrated trying to find a nice large cabinet to hold most of my collection, and knew Sherlock Holmes was one of my favorites.

Here's one for the left wingers! A very happy looking Che Guevara smoking a pipe, which he apparently liked more than cigars, but the Cubans felt pipes were mas gringo so he went along with the program.

Hasta la victoria siempre!

The story to this picture:

This was taken over one year ago in a Blues Club in Kiev (Ukraine) when I had the pleasure to organize some small concert for a famous Canadian Blues musician, Johnny V, on his visit in Ukraine.

If you like great blues music: http://www.johnnyv.org and listen to his last record. It's amazing. But keep control on yourself when listening. It's some risk that you will smoke the pipe too fast. :))

All the best and greetings from Kiev.

This is a tattoo designed by Ed Hardy and done on a bicep by me. I rarely get the chance to include a pipe in a tattoo so this one was a bit more fun then usual.

Attached is a picture of Raymond Chandler, creator of the legendary Philip Marlowe. Perched on the desk is Chandler's cat, Taki. I know Chandler liked Dunhills, but I can't verify the pipe in the picture. I like the bowl of pipes toward the back of the desk.

If this scan needs to be redone, isn't acceptable, or you just need more information, let me know.

I've been following pipes.org for years and thought it was time to make a contribution, however small.

Sir,

I am attaching an image of Admiral Arliegh A. Burke onboard a U.S. = warship during his tenure as Chief Of Naval Operations (CNO).

I cannot identify the pipe he is smoking.

I enjoy the e-magazine and often refer to it as well as the moderated = discussion boards.

Respectfully,

Mark B. Freeman

Here's an unusual picture: a snowman with a pipe. Pipes seem to have mostly disappeared from common images. Snowmen and academic types in the media will still have them...
