Bob, that's an outstanding self-shot pic! Thanks for posting. It's nice to see you breaking in your newest addition to the Canadian Brigham collection you're working on. Thanks for your kind words, I'm happy to have added to your horde.
Just had to read this post and look at the one that got away.
Glad you weren't smiling in the selfie, pal. I probably would've gone out to the nearest cathedral and kicked a hole through a stained glass window.
While I don't want to admit it, you do look good rocking the ARC polo.
Tom, I do use the maple insert. After a smoke they are wet so they do soak up moisture. A cleaner will pass no problem with the insert in. I rinse them in under the tap, run pipe cleaner through them and lay them out to dry. They last a very long time.
