  • Nice show. Personally I prefer the straight stem with a modest button. I smoke manly in a recliner so clinching is not a problem.
    The interview with Erik was quite enjoyable. It is a funny story about how the family got its name. The 4th Gen tobaccos are quite good.
    The music wasn’t bad but no comparison to the original.
    Its funny that when travel is delayed by mechanical difficulties everyone takes it in stride. It’s almost like they are saying “Take your time and get it right”. On the the hand they will damn near lose their minds when weather causes a delay.

  • BRIAN. Can you please send me a copy of Rick Newcombe’s letter so I can flood the swamp!! Be well. Great podcast. Your E Stokkabe interview was great. Keep up the GREAT WORK. !! It makes my week. Be well.
    Your friend.

  • Brian, those round buttons are commonly referred to as “orific” (I’m not sure who coined that term) and they are often found on older British pipes. Their presence is an added detail in helping to date a pipe, in combination with stamping and lacking a hallmark date. Like you, I’m not a fan of smoking this style button. That helps me from spending a lot of money on certain older pipes!
