I have been puffing for 30+ years and my current pipe smokes include light aromatics (Lane 1-Q and Boswell's Best are regular smokes), various natural Virginia natural blends (Solani 633, and Orlik are daily smokes - Stokkebye Luxury Navy Flake and Smauel Gawith FVF and H&H Anniversary Kake are occasional smokes), and various Latakia blends (Boswell's Magnum and Mild English are daily smokes - Dunhill 965 and Durbar; Nording's Foxhound; Boswell's Countryside and Northwoods are occasional smokes) Nording Foxhound). I smoke 5 to 10 pipes a day, most of which I smoke in the home office while working (currently working on doctorate and teach so working from home is the norm).

Currently around 60 pipes, but I have had as many as 100. I tend to give pipes away to those interested in taking up the art. Pipes from various makers: MM cobs (about 20), Ascorti, Boswell, Brebbia, Don Carlos, L'anatra, Neilsen, Peterson, Rinaldo, Savinelli, Winslow, and several others. My favorite pipes are 40+ plus year-old Petersons and Savinellis that were owned by my father.
