Question from a newb:
I bought my first pipe about two months ago. It's a barrel pipe, a PTM. I love it. I probably smoke about 5 times a week. The pipe itself has begun to inherit the general smell of the tobaccos that I have used, primarily Dark Rum and Honey & Rum. My question is, is there a reason for owning multiple pipes? It seems there are a lot of collectors on the site who probably own several pipes merely for collector interest. But should I expect that my pipe may become specific to certain types of tobacco? Maybe my question is dumb, but as I consider buying a second pipe I'm curious if owning multiple pipes is the norm. When I bought the first one I honestly figured it was the only pipe I would ever own!
