I've been smoking and collecting pipes for 25+ years. I enjoy buying and restoring estate pipes. My favorites are the extra-large 'well' pipes like the Wellingtons, Chesterfields, and Imperials.

Wellington, Dunhill, KBB Imperial, Chesterfield, WDC Jumbo, Peterson, Ropp, a couple of churchwardens, an Austrian Calabash, and several long-stemmed cherry pipes from assorted makers (great smokers, by the way).
