WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PIPE AND WHY?
Most of us have several pipes. Many may have dozens. Have you ever thought about which one is your favorite?
Selecting a favorite can be very difficult. The reason for your selection might be for any number of characteristics; shape, size, feel, the way it smokes, visual appeal, or some
sentimental attachment, etc. My selection encompasses all of those reasons. I've narrowed my selection down to me Savinelli Cricket leather covered Saddle Bit 127. Savinelli no longer makes the Cricket Series The sentimental reason dates back to a college professor I took a technical writing course from in 1964. He was a retired Army Colonel and was an excellent teacher as well as very entertaining. I admired him and thought he was really cool. He smoked a leather covered saddle bit(make unknown). I was just starting to explore pipe smoking and through the years searched for one similar to his. I went through some really bad examples before I found this one. I purchased this one before I retired and like it so much I purchased another. It is still in the box and has never been smoked. So if any thing happens to this one, I have another. Never the less the selection was not a slam-dunk. I have 6-8 other pipes that are close seconds.
