New Pipes

I’ve added a number of pipes to the collection this year. I have over a dozen of my favorite Nordings, so have been on the lookout for interesting new designs with smaller “dessert” sized bowls. And, sadly, Mr. Bjarne of Bjarne Pipes passed away this year, so there will be no more of those excellent smokers when the existing stocks sell out. Here are three of my new additions.

Stanwell Legend 140

This little beauty has a really nice grain and promises to be a good smoker.

Bjarne Freehand

Here is a really nice woodgrain with a 3/4 bowl, sure to be prized, and already a good smoker.

Bjarne Churchwarden Rustic Sitter

(Bottom) – Compared to a “Bing’s Favorite” I used to call a churchwarden, and my even smaller Dunhill poker. The Bjarne is really a sitter – it sits, no doubt thanks to its generous bowl ballast. This is just the smoker for the living room couch, when you don’t plan on moving around and can cradle the bowl in one hand. You would not walk around with this clenched in your teeth, and¬†the long stem leverage¬†would pry open your jaw if you tried. I believe it will become on of my best smokers.
