    Small additions

    I'm big on unique rustication so the red root series caught my eye. The Willmer has beautiful grain as well, and has been treating me wonderfully. I like eunique, anyone can smoke a plain black pipe (no offense, if that's your preference) I have read that small pipes and dublins are good for...

    Small additions

    The two newest additions. Both are small,"take to work" pipes. One was a super generous gift from a member, who I I'll leave unnamed to avoid him being asked for handouts (Thank you, again. Watch the mail ;)). The other is a kaywoodie red root dublin. I have to say, I rather enjoy how the dublin...

    Morta???

    So I'm basically looking for a knowledge dump on Morta. I have seem some wonderful looking Morta pipes, but know little of the wood, or the pipes made of it. I think I know it's really old bog wood, hard as a rock, and looks pretty. What are the facts, pros and cons?

    My Birthday Self Gift

    Thanks 'Lifesize'. Now by my count, I have 7 slots to fill. Tom, I noticed the first smoke was a bit wet myself. I left the can open for about an hour, almost perfect now. The only bite I got was the first retro... that was all on me though....

    Cob Questions.

    Thanks Cosmic!... and I've noticed that half and half, and irish dream go well with the cob taste. With black cavendish it is a stark contrast though... also as a side not my hardwood seems to really like perique. I've noticed amber seems to hold up better, though it does feel brittle. Ill...

    Cob Questions.

    That makes sense. I subscribe to the same method. I also keep cake out of the cobs, so that adds up. Thanks again.

    Cob Questions.

    Thanks aldecaker. The bittom of the bowls are in fact lighter, and dont have the slight glaze to them. I'll keep puffin away on em, and stockpile some bits. Thanks again for the guidence, gentlemen.

    Cob Questions.

    I think I'll stock up on stems. Since the forevers are unavailable. The danish stems fit standard MM cobs? How about the cooking corn factor? I dont dislike the taste, I'd just like to know if thats just what to expect when I enjoy a cob.

    Cob Questions.

    "That rubber you put in your mouth will make you impotent. Real pipe smokers never use them and we put teeth marks in our stems. Also the pipe Gods will consider you a blasphemer and make all your tobacco taste like shit." :rofl: ... well I wouldn't want that.

    Cob Questions.

    So I've had a few MM cobs in rotation for a few weeks and have a few questions for you guys with more time under your belts. 1. I've noticed no matter what tobacco, and packing technique I use the final third has a cooking corn taste to it. Is this to be expected, and will it fade in time? 2...
