    Yes indeed, those are more expensive, hand made pipes, and they are neither in a rack nor lying naked on the shelf, and they don't get smoked that often. So I think they deserve a protective and good looking dress.

    As to necessity, pipe buyers are a delicate bunch, I suppose, who prefer their pipes not to be banged against other objects on the way from the factory to the shop, and then home. See the complaints people make about eBay sellers who don't properly pack pipes before shipping them. It's called unprofessional on the part of eBay sellers, and it would probably likewise be considered on the part of a manufacturer. Not serving any purpose any longer at our homes doesn't mean the socks didn't have a useful function before they got there.

    Best wishes

    Yeah, the socks definitely have some benefits during warehousing and transportation, but there are better ways to handle both of those scenarios. I'm specifically interested in knowing how many of you find them useful post-purchase and in what manner you use them.

    That's a good use for a pouch. They're light to carry and take up little space in a pocket when you're smoking the pipe.

    The one and only Pete I have was bought new at Iwan Ries many years ago. I got no sock, just a box. I feel slighted now.
