Well what can I say.
I picked up the pipe at 22 years old and still going strong at 28.
I know what I like and dislike in the pipe smoking world and I am not afraid to admit it.

I am an avid collector of falcon pipes and enjoy smoking them on a daily basis, I also enjoy traditional briar pipes like bulldogs , Canadians and apples.
When smoking my pipe you will find me in my rickety shed with pipe in hand and a bottle of good English ale or a whiskey not to far away from me and my radio playing.
I like to live a simple, anonymous life away from social media, instead I enjoy quiet contemplation with me, myself and I, sometimes with a good book, other times writing in my journal or just thinking over the days events.

I am a an avid collector of falcon pipes, and when the opportunity arises, alco pipes.
I also own traditional briars from the likes of John brumfit and hardcastle pipes with other pipes I have picked up on my travels.
