New Boswell on the Way
Hello Fellow Pipe Smokers,
I'm a new member. I've been smoking a pipe since early November I believe. I started with an old Stanwell my father gave me, and my fiancee bought me an estate Peterson Rocky Donegal for Christmas. I decided it was time to buy my first new pipe. Did some research, and have been stalking Boswell's site for a month. Just placed my order for this beauty.
Damn, I was wondering who got ahold of that one. I've been on the phone with Julie trying to make a selection but everyone I like gets sold right before I call to claim it. She's trying to send me pictures of a different one that's not on their Pipes For Sale page right now. Congrats on the poker! I own two other Boswell's and they are by far my favorite pipes. I have yet to find anything that compares to their quality for the price. Also welcome to the forums, you'll find plenty of helpful and friendly people here!
Welcome aboard smokedragon. I think you'll be pleased with your new Boswell. How did you like the old Stanwell. My estate Stanwells are my favorite smokers. I'm always looking for another.
If you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got
Congrats. I have a Boswell poker an it is one of my favorites. Just picked up an estate Boswell large stack and love it. Boswells are addicting and their customer service is outstanding
Awesome I hope to get Boswell one day myself.

Here's what I ended up with. Exactly what I was looking for...something short and rusticated. This is going to be my golf and fishing pipe once I get it broken in good. +1 k9shag, customer service is excellent and Julie was so helpful in picking a pipe I would like and sending me pictures.
I like it. The contrast of the smooth shank and rusticated bowl looks really good.
As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper
Cigarettes are an addiction, cigars are a hobby, pipes are a religion
you're in for a big treat.....
@John I was calling in and getting a busy signal for quite a while. I have been counting down the days this week to grab one. I was originally thinking of getting a stubby nose warmer, but I really liked the contrasts on the poker. Yours is a beauty as well. I really like Boswell's rustication look. Stunning really.
@dlattim The pipe my father gave me is a rusticated 2003 pipe of the year. I love the pipe. Great smoker, no problems. My father has been a pipe smoker for many many years. He was going to Cup of Joe's when the business had no website and was just a kiosk in the Aviation Mall in Queensbury, NY! He is an outdoor guy and tends to buy pipes that he smokes 'til they are dead. He's not an avid cleaner :roll:. He originally lent it to me, and I fixed it up to looking like new; polished silver, salt & alcohol treatments, new wax buffing...the works. I sent him pictures and he told me that I should keep it since it was getting more love from me. Wonderful pipe.
@k9shag The customer service was excellent! I bought a heap (getting technical here aren't I?) of tobacco from them earlier in the week. I've been drooling over youtube videos of people taking pilgrimages to the Boswell store. Maybe I'll have to take a trip up there some time myself.
What a beautiful Poker!
Both of those are beautiful pipes. Boswell's sandblasting is incredible. I hope to get one someday, if I can stop buying GBD estate pipes on ebay.
Ebay is such a pipe tease. I've been finding myself patrolling the estate pipe listings at night. Good thing my wife keeps me in line.
They sure go fast don't they? I've been waiting for the right Boswell to order. I never have any luck.
I want a Jumbo and a nose warmer. Maybe this summer, I'll ride my motorcycle down to their shop and pick out a couple.
Very nice pipe John.
Great choices on both those Boswells. I like the rustication and how it marries with the smooth shank on the poker. The bent looks the perfect pocket pipe, balanced and easy to clench while doing something with the hands.
Well done you two and Welcome to PM Forums, Smokedragon!
Wow, we are in Poker heaven on the boards here lately. This one is really cool. I have a couple of boswells, but need to add one of their pokers to my collection.
So my wife has lovingly dubbed the poker "the sushi roll". Now I can't not see it.
Two nice Boswell's. Congratz guys!
That dark chipped finish, sometimes complemented with those smooth areas, is a real signature look for a lot of their pipes. I have a couple of their pipes and it's hard to go wrong with them.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
-C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)
Very Beautiful. Have always loved the look & style but wondering how they smoke. Congrats!
