    I've been wanting to try a Poker so I went back to my tried and true - Boswell. Its a black rusticated poker. Really feels nice in the hand. I also bought... ahem ... lot of tobacco. This marks my last big TAD purchase but will be buying smaller tobaccos to try. Decided to throw in 2 English blends too to see how I like them. I'm a happy camper.

    Looks like that pipe will certainly be busy. Good score

    That poker is sweet! And that looks like a good haul!

    All Boswell aros and 2 english blends? Let us know how they are! I've yet to try any of Boswell's blends.

    Which English blends? I tired countryside and it was wonderful. It was my first English, and is what got me hooked on it. Mine was aged two years, it was wonderfully smooth. Mellow, yet strong in flavor. If you find you don't like the Englishes, cellar them for a bit and they will mellow out.

    As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

    Let us know how that bad boy smokes zonomo. I have been recently breaking in my 2 new Boswell pipes and they are just such smooth smokers, they just feel "right" to me in terms of everything I want in a pipe, so I am positive that you will love yours. Congrats on your haul!

    PipeVovelist - you said it perfectly. The Boswells feel "just right".

    I'm convinced you can't beat Boswell's pipes, prices or tobaccos. I have tried Northwoods, Countryside, Premium Burley and Boswell's Best. Not a loser in the crowd.

    Nice haul, Z. Now, smoke that beauty of a poker like you mean it!

    Beautiful pipe, I may have just been converted to wanting poker after seeing that.

    That's comforting to me. I'm beginning to think something is wrong with me. So far, I am 0 for 3 in trying English's .

    Congratulations on your new pipe. It is also good that you have lots of variety tobacco to smoke in it and other pipes you have.

    ya, I think I'm going to stick w my aros since I so enjoy them and from time to time, fire up an English or Virginia. But having been at this now for about 4 months, I am starting to really really enjoy this. Going to slow way down on the TAD and PAD..... now on to lighters.. ha ha.... Just picked up a Tsubota Pearl EDDIE Brass & Brown Marble Pipe Lighter w/Tools Seki Japan Old Boy.

    That poker is sweet, I like the contrast with the black/natural colors.

    I ended up smoking her last night for the first time. Oh man, that was one sweet smoke. Really happy with this pipe. If anyone is on the fence about grabbing a Boswell, PLEASE do yourself a favor and move heaven and earth to get it. This is my first poker and there is something about this pipe and its just sweet and pristine. I'd dont really have the vocabulary yet to describe why this pipe is so special.
