    What Is Meerschaum ?? And Do You Have One?

    I have 3 Peterson Meers that smoke OK. It costs high dollar (pound) but worth it. In my humble opinion, all Turkish-made pipes are rubbish. Still, even these pipes do not get enough love from me. Quality briar pipe is much better.

    Pipe Sale Price

    Thank all for useful tips. Rothnh, no disrespect for other channels here. I'm more or less familiar with eBay while even do not know about existence of BriarBid.

    Pipe Sale Price

    I want to sell some of my Savinelli pipes on EBay. What price should I ask relatively to the price of a new? Let's assume I've bought it for $100, what can I hope to get after a year?

    Frog Morton on the Town

    One more "English mixture". I do not like nuts aluminium can but that's the way it is. Smokes light and easy. What distinguish it is that strange "Basma" taste. You can like it or not (I'm indifferent). The main problem of this mixture is the total absence of nicotine. I'll add "Ten Russians" to...

    Dunhill Flake Holy Cow and Some Help!

    Cellar a good quantity of Dunhill Flake tins and open it after a year or more. If you like it fresh you'll be blown away then. And try Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls - the best Va/Per money can buy.

    Hermit "Captain Earle's Ten Russians"

    Best stuff for Latakia maniacs. I wanted to try it because I speak Russian and love Latakia. It looks like a black brick which slivers easily. I’ve tried it in small filtered Savinelli. Very sweet and rich taste, mostly Latakia but some Orientals and Virginia inside. Is it strong? You bet it...

    Anything Similar to Dunhill 965 in Tins?

    Try Presyterian Mixture, IMHO the best Oriental. And if to add to it a bit of Robert McConnell's Pure Latakia it will shine even more.
