    A quarter of the way through this bowl of Stonehaven in a straight sandblasted pre-transition Barling Exel 249 Fossil T.V.F. black billiard with a silver band and a black ebonite military bit. This will end my smoking day with any luck.

    Nice Don Warren there! He was the first artisan carver I ever bought a pipe from. Always pick up a new one from him at the West Coast Show.

    For me it's Lane's RLP6 in a Peterson Dracula 03 smooth

    Recently finished a fantastic tin of 7-year-old Pease Lagonda. This stuff ages beautifully.

    I'm now enjoying an 8-year-old tin of Rattray's Jocks Mixture, which is one of my favorite blends — and one that doesn’t seem to get a lot of attention.
