  • This was simply a terrific show. Richard (aka PipePhil) was simply a wonderful guest. The amount of work he has done to develop his website simply staggers the imagination and its value to the pipe community is simply staggering. When I used to handle the KC pipe club newsletter I published a number of articles using the PipePhil Bizarre Pipes section of the website. He had some real doozies in that section.

    Surprisingly the music selection was very good.

  • Great show. It was wonderful to hear so much about a website that most of us have turned to hundreds of times. I do hope it continues to build and he finds someone else to keep it going. We definitely need to use this time to be smoking our pipes on our walks and such. Great advice. Nice question in Ask a Pipemaker. I have a couple of artisan oil cured pipes. They can sweeten the first few bowls but afterwards there is no further discernible benefit to me.

  • Another great interview and a very useful Web page to visit. I am curious what is favorite tobacco was, I couldn’t quite make out the name?
