  • I find your opening question to guests, describing how they “got into pipes,” to be one of the highlights of the shows. It always seems to lead to that “aha” moment, when a more seasoned member of our community helps spark the transition from dabbler to pipe person. Robert’s story is similarly indicative of that warm brotherhood and sisterhood of our unique community.
    Excellent show, tonight. Thanks.

  • Enjoyed the discussion of Dunhill’s very much. I don’t what it is they’ve got but they’ve got it. Robert’s discussion of prices when he entered the smoking arena and now have really changed. The Excalibur #1 was just a joy to smoke when they were a $1.80. Not so much now.

  • Great show, are most of them. I just wanted to mention a possible song that refers to a sailor who smokes a briar pipe; Land Ho by The Doors.
