    Starting flakes

    I'm gonna chime in. I fold, rub a bit, and stuff. It always works for me. I hardly smoke ready-rubbed. That's passe.

    Boxes of Tobacco

    How long will a 1.5lb box of PS LNF (for example) last without jarring?

    White Whale Slipping Away

    Thank you. I have a few pipes at this stage; some 4 or 5 years in. I have some favorites, and some great smokers. This one is right at the top of the list. (I'm still saving for my custom chopper.)
