    Your pipe of the year 2020.

    I posted a ''Your pipe of the year 2018'' thread however failed to post a 2019 one for some reason.

    My pipe of 2020 is the Hardcastle's Argyle bullcap. I love the look of it, the feel of it and above all else it smokes well. So what's your pipe of 2020? It doesn't have to be a new one it can be one you've had for years.

    Come on you lot....you must have one favourite? Even if it happens to look like something that belongs on the seabed.

    I do not think it is my two Petersons POY 2020, they are nice pipes but maybe it is a used Peterson Shamrock I got years back.
    A medium billiard with nickelband and P lip, no grain and 13 fills, one was fallen out.
    After years of looking I cleaned and polished it and filled the hole. It went out to be a good smoker with no ghost. It also have coloured nicely.

    Nice story Jorgen. Goes to show the 'ugly duckling' can often turn out to be a good one...not just pipes either!!

    The only Charatan I have has performed well...however the bullcap just has that something about it.

    the Peterson 1906 dutch billiard I got recently is coming on very nicely after a couple of dozen bowls through it,since getting it cleaned up and polished.It had one of the dirtiest sumps I have ever seen.

    Hello,

    What's stood out this year with my pipe smoking is being able to work from home for much of the year. So I also was able to smoke while working (at least while preparing lessons, not while on MS Teams teaching). Here my set of Savinelli Punto Oro has done a great job, with mostly big bowls and consistently light weight in proportion to the bowl size. Maybe these are my POY 2020.

    Best wishes
    Markus

    There are good, very good, and excellent pipes in my collection; the excellent pipes are all hand made from both Italy and the UK. If I think about it, this year's award would have to go to the 1950 Dunhill Lovat, a gift from plugugly Chris. In second place is the Upshall P Grade Dublin.

    For sure it's a Preben Holm PC C Grade that has the most unique shape to it especially the stem. Smokes well has no ghost flavor to it at all, great deep bowl does'nt get hot at all. Happy New Year to one and all.
