    Searching For One Thing, Brought Home A Ropp Vintage Sandblasted 29C

    Well, it looks a lot like mine except the shank is a little longer on mine. The draw was a slight bit tighter than I expected, but I was contributing it to a tighter hole in the stem. The bit it a lot smaller than I'm used to, but still very comfortable to clench.

    Searching For One Thing, Brought Home A Ropp Vintage Sandblasted 29C

    Oh? Maybe? They shaved him too! No more beard when I woke up on an island surrounded by beautiful women, but then I woke up from that dream and realized it was just Bill and his stupid squeaking parrot and I think Anthony was doing a jig by the water mumbling something about Black Frigate...

    I do too, so far! I think it smokes very well! I love the feel of it too.

    Searching For One Thing, Brought Home A Ropp Vintage Sandblasted 29C

    Been on a kick of watching the Robert Downey Jr. flick Sherlock Holmes and in my ever present search for a pipe similar to one of the variety he smokes (believe it's been mostly narrowed to a Dunhill), I keep perusing the virtual shelves of all the usual suspects for one like it. Never fails...

    Halloween Horror Flicks - What is Everyone Watching?

    Yes! I just started watching that last week. Only a few episodes in though, but looking forward to finishing it.

    Trying To Find Something Similar To A Particular Pipe Tobacco In Cigar Form

    I was out in my car with the window cracked this morning, smoking a lovely blend called Scotty's Butternut Burley. I love it in the mornings, especially when it's crisp outside. A guy I work with smelled it and asked me about it and I told him what it was. He asked me if they had something...

    What’s Your Favorite English?

    I have lots of favorites and can't pick just one. Maltese Falcon Presbyterian Mixture Boswell Northwoods Just to name a few, are some of my favorites. Just depends on what I haven't smoked in a while when I want an English as to which one I go with, but all are fantastic.

    I Decided to Try Maltese Falcon...

    I absolutely love the stuff. I bought a small tin last year and gave it a shot when it was available and then it sold out before I could order more. Then I got the opportunity to buy a couple of 8 oz tins and jumped. I love MF and is one of my favorite blends. I smoke it fairly regularly. It's...

    Ever Had A Blend Be Too Strong?

    I must admit, I like the stronger things in life. Dark, strong porters and stouts; strong flavored sweet tea, dark roasted coffees and dark, strong and flavorful tobaccos. Every once in a while, depending on how I've eaten, one will set my head to spinning, but I enjoy it when it happens. Puts a...

    How Do I Remove Gooey Cake?

    I've let mine dry before, then used my Case knife with the spey blade and angle the back edge so as to scrape the bowl out. It's a little like reaming but I don't really cut into it at all. Mostly I don't keep very much cake in mine, so I do this in my spare time anyway. It leaves just enough...

    Stem removal

    The very first time I take a stem loose, I usually twist counter-clockwise just in case it has a threaded stem. Sort of a habit of mine after I broke the shit out of one by twisting too hard clockwise, only to discover the stem was threaded to the stummel...Oh well. After I discover how it...

    Gal From Oklahoma

    Not sure about the peaches and cream, but the PS Luxury Twist, Luxury Navy, and Luxury Bullseye Flakes are some of my favorites. I go between them from time to time when I want straight Va and when I want a little something thrown in, like the LBF. They're all good tobaccos. I believe some have...

    Gal From Oklahoma

    Welcome, from North Carolina here. If you're looking at the country squire, you're looking in a good place. Their Old Toby from their middle earth collection is mighty fine. I love it and possibly my favorite aro to date. Might I also suggest checking out Boswell's too while you're at it? It's...

    OWL Pipes?

    Please let us know how they are. I've spotted them a few times and the thought had crossed my mind to give one a shot as I really liked all the stuff that came with it too. They have a lot of interesting designs and I really liked them, just haven't bought one yet.
