Random quote: "The day after God created great cognac He realized He'd only done half the job and so He created great cigars. Then, He knew it was better than good. And it was the evening and morning of the eighth day." - The novel Jack in the Box by John Weisman

To Cob or not, to Cob is the question... but in you case, it also seems to be the answer.

That's a lot of pipes, is your goal to have a different one for every day of the year

I enjoy my cob pipes, though I sometimes think I don't smoke them often enough when I light one up. I smoke my briars more often so I sometimes forget what great pipes cobs are...

I don't smoke a pipe any more. I stopped years ago. I never really enjoyed cob pipes. I like my briar best and then my Meerschaum which I only smoke occasionally.

You should! There's just a certain vibe they have that appeals to me.

I enjoyed the cob that was sent to me in the Mild Side pass. I think I may prefer the briars, but I understand the appeal.

I always thought pipes looked cool and the idea of the pipe is up my alley obviously, but I'm not big on infused/flavored whatever so I've never smoked a pipe. Maybe I should change that, if for nothing else it would give me a reason to own some pipes.

There are plenty, and I mean tons and tons, of "unflavored" non-aromatic pipe tobaccos. Want some?

Dave is a well-known pipe enabler. Brian, I reckon you'd dig plenty of the non-aromatic or English blends. Seems like it'd be right up your alley, indeed.

One of my buddies and I bought some cheap-o pipe when we were in college (no, not that kind of pipe). Only smoked it a couple of times, we didn't really know what we were doing so we gave up. Wouldn't mind going back and trying one again sometime maybe.

I'm not a fan of infused cigars; however, there are multiple aromatic pipe tobacco's that I enjoy. With that said, there is a large variety of pipe tobacco's; traditional English blends, Balkan/Latakia blends, Virginia blends, Virginia/Perique blends, Virginia/Burley blends, Burley blends etc.

Also some blends just smoke better in a cob compared to briar or meerschaum. Blends such as Granger, Sir Walter Raleigh, Carter Hall etc. to me and many pipe smokers taste better in a cob, so it's always good to have a cob or 12 in your collection.

That sounds like a rabbit hole that goes on and on, that being said I did find myself "pipe shopping" last night. No purchases but man you guys are a bad influence.
