    Ordering a pipe from Pipes and Cigars, safe?

    I have not bought pipes from them in awhile, my last pipe from them was probably before the acquisition by CI. Not for any particular reason, Ijust didnt have the money to buy more pipes. If there is a problem in the finish of the pipe, isnt that a manufacturer's issue, and not a retailer's issue?

    Mixing that Extra Tobacco

    I tend to just take whatever's left and mix it with something else. I've never really gotten the chance to dedicate a jar to scraps since I usually have an open tin waiting to get jarred up

    Darn - Laid off again

    I took a job at UPS because I couldnt find work in my field. I have a Master's degree. I've been loading trucks for the longest 11 months of my life. Picking up per diem work, going back to school, and officiating hockey games. I start my new job in Aug. My pipes have been keeping me sane for a...

    I want to explore Virginias, but ...

    I wonder if moisture and humidity could play a part in that. Moist tobacco needs to be hotter in order to burn.

    Latakia Smell Transfer

    I did in fact smoke some and could still taste the Patagonia. Oh well. I might try airing it out some more like on a plate. If that doesn't work I will just mix in some more VA W

    Latakia Smell Transfer

    I had a recent order sit in the box for awhile, maybe a week or so (long story). All the tobacco I ordered was bulk so it was in ziploc bags. The VA blend I ordered, McClelland Matured Cake, took on the smell of latakia from 2 other blends. I took the VA out of the bag and let it air out for...

    Milan Tobacconists of Roanoke, Virginia

    I've enjoyed numerous orders and interactions with them. I like their prices on pipe racks, and they have a good selection of Erik Nording pipes.

    On Thanksgiving Day, I will Not Be Happy!!!!!!

    I hope things go well for you. Enjoy the little ones, they're only little for so long. This makes me glad that I only have 2 days off for Christmas, because my wife wanted to go to her parents' house. 2 days off would not allow for that to happen. I told her to take the kids and go without...
