    Zippo Lighter

    Carry two Zippos for pipes all the time (I own 4). I love them, they are reliable and easy to maintain (flint and wick). If you want to get 'green', you aren't throwing away disposable lighters in landfills either. If you do keep a disposable around (just in case, 3rd backup option), pull...

    Pocket Pipe

    I can second the recommendation on Stanwell featherweights. I have one and although small, it smokes cool and steady. If you want a cob, try a Pony Express or Acorn cob, both are great pocket pipes as well.

    What's Re-purposed for Tampers?

    I use Clevis Pin Bolts, I have one that is 3" and skinny and 4" that is 5/8 around. Very effective and inexpensive.

    Winter Is Coming!! Can't smoke as much....

    I am fortunate, I smoke in my house. I usually lean to lighter aros indoors, shying away from English blends, though they come out for a change of pace once and a while. All that said, I still prefer to smoke outside, because I enjoy being outdoors. Only the truly cruel months of Jan and Feb...

    No more Forever Stems?

    Paying under a $1 for a replacement stem and getting continued life out of a $7 pipe is worth the investment. Throwing away $6 worth of good cob pipe makes no sense. Do this twice and you save enough for a tin of tobacco.

    Falcons and such

    Jud, I just picked up a Falcon and 2 bowls. I like it well enough, easy maintenance and dry smoke. Until the break in period is done on the bowls, I won't truly know if they are a regular rotation. I picked them up for easy traveling pipes on the motorcycle this summer. Keep us posted on...

    Tips For Smoking In Your Car / Truck

    I drive with the AC on, the back windows down slightly. This keeps things cool in the car, with a draft for smoke, without cross wind on the pipe. Make sure your vents are not pointed directly at you, as this can have the same effect as wind, causing your pipe to get hot. For a holder, I use a...

    Cult Blood Red Moon!

    Ember, I have tried both, gave away the Lane Dark Red and only smoke BRM. It is the only cherry I smoke and for many good reasons. It smokes perfectly out of the tin, with no extra moisture and it doesn't bite or leave a chemical after taste. Open that tin and if you don't like it, send the...
