    Interesting Packing Technique

    Good Day All; This was posted on FB a short time ago and thought it interesting. It is a short film about women smoking pipes, circa 1969. What I found most interesting was the packing technique that was taught. I am always interested in different ways of doing things and have been using the...

    Good Day All; It's not often I spend much effort looking for new ( to me ) blends to try. I will read what others post on this forum, with interest. However, recently I used the "tobacco locator" search on the smokingpipes.com site. It came up with number of blends, similar to my usual...

    Blue Riband

    Good Day All; I saw this and could not resist. I am guessing the pipe is from the 1980's or later? https://www.ebay.com/itm/COMOY-039-S-203-BLUE-RIBAND-/232611121871?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=ywnaAUmwQSfuBpaRNvCBbnWJaeA%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc Might...

    Learning, Evolution, or Adapting?

    Good Day All; There is another thread discussing pipe learning / purchase mistakes, by mso489. I believe that it’s more a pipe learning “evolution / learning to adapt” scheme. Be warned this is more than a little long winded. In the beginning, as pipe enjoyers, we begin with less expensive...

    Sasieni Help Please

    Good Day All This large Sasieni has arrived at my door from a client to sell. The owner says it is pre 1946, however, I don't think it's that old. I am far from an expert on British pipes. To my eye the dots are not correct for the era. http://www.briarblues.com/27.htm The word Sasieni is in...
