    International Shopping for Pipes

    I have no experience with your question, but I applaud your choice of Missouri Meerschaums. The Pride is about as good as it gets, just start them out slowly to establish an inner hardening as the 'natural' or unfinished cob can burn out if pushed during break in. ( I did that with one or two...

    Cavendish What?

    Cornell & Diehl's Autumn Evening: Our proprietary red Virginia cavendish is lightly cased with a delicate maple flavor resulting in our best selling aromatic blend. The smoker will appreciate the taste of Virginias while those around will flock to the warm, inviting fragrance. Notes: Jeremy...

    In Memory of Matches860

    I think John would have been pleased with a special run of HBS in his honor. A blend? We're asking a lot from the blender here.

    In Memory of Matches860

    The news of Matches (aka: John Harden) having passed into the next stage of his existence has caused a lot of folks to think of him and what he has meant to their pipes and tobaccos experience. That John was reportedly only 64 yrs old should give us all pause to consider our own limitations and...

    When Do You Smoke Your Pipe?

    I too smoke only outdoor, and usually walk the street out front or the cart path out back or just sit in a chair on the porch. I get up EARLY, and within the first half hr, i'm out with either a freshly filled pipe or one that has just been sipped slightly the night before, and I walk about a...

    ***What Are You Smoking? January 2020.***

    Enjoying tobacco tasting bliss out on the porch while wearing a light jacket (mostly to hold stuff in its pockets) and using my OG MM Legend with a Peterson Barrel's "P" lip stem and a melange of D*R tobaccos, including some Penhooker Green, Picayune, Sigarro, 3 Sails, and Ramback. It works! (is...

    ***What Are You Smoking? January 2020.***

    I just finished a nice bowl of D&R tobaccos using my one certified artisan pipe. This pipe was made by a forum member who joined sometime about when I did over 5 short yrs ago and has continued to delve into the fine arts of pipes and tobacco ever since. This pipe was made with perfect draw...

    I've been happy smoking all kinds of D&R blends, but I do make up my own from 3 of their sturdy varietal offerings. TwoTimer and 3 Sails has been my burley and virginia base mix at approx 1/1. I will then add some Picayune for its perique and dark fired. The 3 Sails is a nice sweet VA but is...

    Pipe Smoking Study, It Doesn't Look Good.

    I'm 71, and have been a tobacco user most of my life. When I started pipes, I had been retired a year and a non smoker for about 5. I got very sick and depressed and stressed out and went back to tobacco. Within about 2 months I decided I didn't want to inhale burnt paper so I went to Walgreens...

    *** What Are You Smoking?*** (September 2019)

    Match ERR in a Kiko cobbilly, a meer from Tanganyika with just a bowl and a stem. The bowl is poker shaped and has carved criss cross diagonal texture. 19gm. I think I remember. Vulcanite stem and very easy to smoke.

    One Modeled Storm Track for Dorian...

    I guess then, despite living in FL, having it hit and weaken in FL would be best case for all. I'm sitting on my porch in Ocala, no shirt, shorts, a fan, some coffee and my pipe waiting around to see what happens. This one is as freakish as any I've seen and if it mimics Andrew, gawd help...

    *** What Are You Smoking?*** (August 2019)

    My D&R triple play in a Chris Besse hand made Canadian Maple straight billiard. (just in, from a nice, cool, lunt before sunrise, 2nd of the day, so far.)
