I bought my first pipe (Dunhill group 3, 554 F/T) during 1992 while lived in London, UK During those three years, enjoyed to smoke occationally different kinds of English Blends. After 1994 I moved again and packed my Dunhill Bruyere back to its original box and stored it for years... After my 40th birthday started wondering to do something "new" in my life, as felt that "been there done that" about almost everything. Due old hobby had left fond memories, I decided to start pipesmoking again. I dont smoke more often than during days living in London, not more than few bowls a week, sometimes just one bowl during weekend. As not so frequent smoker, I have to admit, I really enjoy every bowl, and dont feel any form of nicotine addiction afterwards. Nowdays I use mainly my Peterson 303 System (with P-Lip), but during special occations, other pipes of my collection... Favourite tobaccos are mainly different forms of aromatic ranging from cheap and basic Clan (which I consider as "the old reliable, nothing fancy but does its job") to fancy tin packed Special Editions of different blenders and time to time prefer non-aromatic classics like Dunhill Nightcap and Samuel Gawith Commonwealth or Ashton Artisans Blend. I also collect rare items.

Rather tiny collection of pipes if counting in amount of pipes, but reasonable variety of styles. Dunhill 554 F/T, Peterson 303 System & Galway B10 (Bent Dublin, rusticated), Chacom Spigot 871 (Author/Diplomat shape), Missouri Meerschaum (General) and Lepeltier (Full Bent)
