    Plasma lighters

    I got one that was certainly thin enough to insert into the bowl for a re-light, but the switch turned out to be too close to the business end for one to do that. it was supposedly good for 300 lights on a single charge, which can be done through a USB cable. It didn't take very long to charge...

    Flavoring Tobacco with Sandalwood?

    Sandalwood seems to be a big seller in the incense industry, so lots of people have inhaled that version of sandalwood smoke. I recently heard a radio talk show about those who raise and sell industrial hemp. It doesn't have enough of the active ingredient (thc ?) so it can't get anybody normal...

    People coming out of the woods

    Is there some implication being made that there are clowns that aren't evil?

    FS Pipe belt 8/18/19

    Looks like if your pipes don't work in it, it might work to hold either .45/70 Gov't. or .600 Nitro Express cartridges.

    What Is The Health Concern Over Deertongue?

    My impression is that unless one inhales regularly, the exposure to anything harmful in Deertongue is a whole lot less than it would be if one made a tea from it (!?!?!?) or chewed it. And there are many different burning temperatures applicable, as there are many compounds in just about...

    Tobacco pouches.

    @Olkofri, After a brief search, I remembered it is on the Dr Grabow order form. They only accept orders by mail, and with an accompanying paper check or money order. On the 2018-19 order form, the pouch is $2.50 till October 1. The four Excel pipes on the order form are only available through...

    Tobacco pouches.

    Years back, I carried a leather fold-over pouch all the time. I can tell you, that if you happen to carry the pouch in your hip pocket, you don't want a pouch with snap fasteners when you're sitting down. I really don't see why any body would actually NEED to have fasteners on a foldover. Dr...

    Negative Customer Psychology

    I learned that the only way to put anything in your Missouri Meerschaum wish list is to first place it in your cart. Then you can move the item to the wish list. Can't be done from the item's description page.

    Another Italian Pipe Shipment Hit With Customs and Duties Charges.

    When I placed an order for some clay pipes from MarKen pipes last week, with their location somewhere in the U.S. Eastern time zone, I was surprised to get the "it's shipped!" email stating they were being shipped from Germany. So now I wonder if, and if so, how much, I'll get zapped by any...

    Cult Tobaccos

    I think there's only one or two of the Cult blends I haven't gotten to yet. So far, I've enjoyed them all, but Blood Red Moon has been my favorite, and thus re-ordered a few times already. (as well as the similar Lane TK-6)
