It's amazing how we all find our own different ways; I've aways said I'm a Smoker not a collector but that said I've accumulated a fair few despite having given away three sets this last three years.
In the big static caravan where I spend a lot of my time in Northumberland there's a rack with eight standard Falcons beside the bed, theres a rack with seven meers in my personal cupboard and a tin box with seven cobs in my drawer. At home in Scotland there's my set of Falcon Extras (8) and around 10 good briars (Sas' and Peterson.)
My choice varies with the season - eg cobs in the summer, meers in the winter, briars in the spring, but being honest my "go to" pipes remain my Falcons, but that's probably just the comfort of the familiar,
Best to all
