    Question So did your 'latest acquisition' turn out to be a Yes Yes Yes !!! or a No No No !!!

    I often look through threads on the Pipes - Latest Acquisitions forum and sometimes wonder what happened to that pipe you bought?

    Reason being...quite a few do pop up on the 'What Is In Your Pipe' thread but quite often they don't. So being a nosey sod I'd like to know about the purchases that were never seen or heard of again? Do you just not smoke the pipe that often or did you get rid of it? If so why?
    Simon G and his Hardacstle Sandhewn being one of them...might be wrong but I don't recall ever seeing it again.

    They get cleaned up and smoked in my case. A few, which turned out to be unsmoked, have remained that way. Two examples that have remained unsmoked, a Celius and a Larsen, but I have been smoking my other Celius and Larsen pipes a lot more!

    This one's still unsmoked, so I guess it's a Not Yet!

    To high at the bite, to little bend. I spend a lot of time with file, sandpaper and candle. Did I like to do that, I think so.
