    Good thread, Crawford!
    It's been a good year for pipes, on the forum. I'd have to say my favourite is the 'Botty'. Smokes & tastes wonderful & looks better than any other pipe I own.

    St. Bruno simply satisfies!

    And the award for my best pipe of 2018 goes to ...

    The Tonni Nielsen bamboo brandy that I received as a gift from Joe ...



    It's now dedicated to dark fired blends (Revor mostly) and I am still in awe of it. I'm still flabbergasted at the gift and I think of Joe every time I look at it. That, to me, makes it a little extra-special.

    Runners up include ...

    The Calibano 109 that I got from Mastro de Paja president, Alberto Montini (the first and probably only new Calibano on American shores in at least 20 years) ...



    ... and the Wally Frank Collector zulu that smokes so well that I always want to load a fresh bowl as soon as the last one is finished ...

    Hello,

    Not sure if I look better or if my standards have slipped. Contact with reality has a habit of wearing down expectations.

    On paper, my pipes of the year should be the three Dunhill Shell Briar that I bought as estates. I do like them, but I don't tend to rank my pipes, and dont like my othEr pipes any less now. I also prefer aesthetically understated pipes for myself.

    Best wishes
    Markus

    Thanks, Crawford. The pipes were a bright spot in an otherwise piss poor year. 2019, on the other hand, is going to be one for the records.

    To be honest Anthony I've been so happy with my 2018 purchases I'm frightened to buy another estate pipe in case it disappoints. So I may just quit while I'm ahead.

    At least one, Crawford. Just to mark the year if nothing else.
