@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.
