    New scientific study confirms that washing your pipe with water makes tobacco taste better.

    The best April Fools are the ones that are somewhat plausible.

    Mike, you have a bit of a sadistic streak in you, ya know...

    Even if this weren’t a joke it wouldn’t change much.

    One point I don't understand. If Trudeau is so liberal, then what is with the personal freedom of smokers? Same goes to Finland - They would like to make their country smoke-free, but again, what is with the personal freedom? I don't want to live in a sterile world where I can't smoke fine pipe tobaccos. I'm just hoping that they will not ban it anywhere. Hell, they are making weed legal in a lot of states (and it is becoming a trend now) then how could they ban simple tobacco? It is part of humanity's culture! Like they would like to ban Irish/Scottish/American whisk(e)y/bourbon, Icelandic Brennivín, Russian Vodka or Hungarian Pálinka. I hope it will never happen.

    Anyway, it was a good one for fool's day.

    @Daniel7, You just took words out of my mouth I was intended to tell, agreeing on 100%,yet If they will seriously start big hunt' on pipe and smoking I may consider immigrating to a more tobacco-friendly environment,,
    Ps, Sorry to hear Your misfortune with Your Petersons, been there me as well,but as I understand Your located in Iceland so why not check out the estatebriarpipes.dk, Mr William may have something for you at reasonable prices. Greets, P

    Just saw this, and was hoping it was posted two days ago. It was too close to the mark....

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    @Paul, thanks for the tip, I will check it too, as smokingpipes is a little bit too far from here. Anyway, lesson learned, no more Petersons...unfortunately, because I really like their look.
    In Iceland we don't have too much possibilities when it comes to pipes and especially pipe tobaccos and it is not a really tobacco-friendly country.
    If you are trying to find a more tobacco-friendly environment, then you are going to have a hard time. Outside EU, the Balkans is a somewhat peaceful place now and absolutely tobacco-friendly. I have positive experience with Montenegro for example. In the EU I like Hungary and Slovakia the most. In Hungary you are not allowed to smoke inside anywhere, but on the terraces/patios of cafes and pubs it is totally allowed and normal to smoke - and there is nice weather almost all-year-long.

    @Embers, Wait, what?!?

    @daniel7

    Have you looked at smokingpipes.eu?

    They still seem to be getting up to speed but service is good, range is increasing and free shipping (orders over 100euro) even to Australia! Don't ship tobacco though.

    Yes, thank you, I have already contacted with the EU department as well. I need to send my pipes to the Peterson factory (lol) for evaluation. After that they will pay 40% of the market price or they can give me 55% store credit of the value which I can use also on smokingpipes.com. So these petes will be even more expensive for me in the end as I lose at least the half of their original price.

    @Daniel7, Thats the way it goes,it was multiple times that I was selling almost brand new pipes even less than half the original price,its the only way they sell quick enough,but today,I'd reckon,I don't wanna continue practicing this my''less than half the original price'selling strategy no more cause everytime when I'm taking a look at the estate market it seems like prices sellers keep asking are way more that I did in the past.
