    Are You Purchasing More Or Less Tobacco Currently?

    I have a stash of every type, but not make and model for every tobacco. I still keep a large amount of my daily smoke and add to that stash when I can IN CASE THE BOTTOM DROPS OUT.

    How to Keep Unfinished Pipe From Browning

    Hi All, Been looking at the Peterson Burren Line. A awesome virgin briar but with a brown wood grain acrylic stem. An awesome pairing out of the box but I think I might not like it so much after the bowl browns. Brown bowl Brown stem seems to much. But the virgin white(Ish) to that stem...

    Paul's Pipe Shop and Hospital

    Whenever I go out of town, somewhat rare, I always google search for "Pipe Shops" in the area. I unfortunately only get cigarette shops selling pot pipes. If I ever have an occasion to travel to your area, I am sure I will have forgotten this post, but hope they come up on the google search. : )...

    Restored This Dr. Grabow Commodore - Pic Heavy

    Question on Flame Grain pipes

    My preferred grain is straight or flame over birds eye for the most part. Probably the carpenter in me.

    Recommendations?

    I like G&H Brown flake unscented ... if I could keep it lit. A slightly aromatic tobacco is about 75% your favorite va + 25% BCa G&H Black and Brown is also slightly aromatic but very tobacco like. Those are the three I smoke when I want more tobacco less sweet.
