    Oh Peterson's, What Have You Done??

    Yes, correct, the link in OP is not the Official Peterson's Site. I just titled it that in the script. Once again, there is no indication that Peterson's actually commissioned him to design it...

    Radice Buttons Breaking - Coincidence?

    To add: I do clean them after every smoke, and they see their fair share in the rotation. I use 99% alcohol, and run cleaners through them like crazy. I clench relatively normally, and the only issue for me seems to be the twin bores, where they might be a bit more fragile, but not to the...

    Radice Buttons Breaking - Coincidence?

    Peck: Here are some of my Radices and the buttons. They all seem to be fine when I smoke them but, I always use a softie and I do clench...I haven't found anything really wrong with them. Your pics look like there's a bit of age and deterioration that caused it to crumble. Please don't bin...

    The Canadian Edition Box Pass- Round 2

    If you do decide to start round three, I would suggest that you read through the entire thread to discover some of the issues we had with the past box passes. Although very successful, I think you need to heed warnings about separating the Aromatics and Virginias and stick to the one week...

    9 Pipe Rack for Under $10.00

    Thank you all...and yes, I think I might stain it. I have two more boards and might do a different top shelf design for the next rack. We'll see how that goes, but for now, I am happy spending the 10 bucks rather than 75 for something from the professionals... Shutterbug

    9 Pipe Rack for Under $10.00

    Alberta Canada to Ban All Flavored Tobacco!

    The Canadian Edition Box Pass- Round 2

    It is just a box of tobacco...agreed... however, after numerous e-mails, calls and nudges, neglect becomes an act of theft does it not? Vetting through numbers of posts and interaction doesn't necessarily garner better results either. I get the fact we all have bad positions in our life, but...

    2014 GKCPC Carving Contest Winners

    What ever happened to the raffle? I paid through Pay-Pal, and I remember someone saying the raffle was cancelled? Something to do with the Casino not allowing it? So no one won all of those beautiful pipes? Shutterbug
