    Nice zooloo Embers.

    I'm doing 2008 McCranies Red Flake in the Castello "Castello" billiard with slightly downturned stem.

    Tobacco's a help because it clears the mind
    But like all your friends it is vilified
    They always say, the right amount's fine

    Now smoking year 1936 Briggs Mixture in a 1977 straight black rusticated Sir Brent billiard with a silver band repair and a brown pearl grey acrylic stem. This pipe isn't a great smoker, but it does well with OTCs and has a bit of sentimental value.

    Erin Go Braugh, a pouch whisky aromatic, in a Thompson Cigar house pipe stamped "West Germany," packed for later. Pipe is at least a Group 5 freehand with plateau brim, retrofitted with a tortoise shell acrylic stem. Old p-lip style stem oxidized with every smoke, no matter how much I polished it.
