    New Petersons

    I just had to show off these recent acquisitions--after all, I've been fighting off the buying disorder for a long time. The first is the new Peterson Sherlock Holmes PSB Mycroft pipe, later replaced with a fish tail stem, made by pipe maestro Silas Walls, who had the pipe directly mailed to him...

    Briar Types

    Very informative, gents! Thanks for the illustrative info. (I wonder how a block with bird's eye would be classed.)

    Briar Types

    How does one distinguish between one grade of briar and another? For example, I recently bought a Sherlock Holmes/Mycroft PSB, which is said to come from the one percent of Peterson's inventory of briars. How would this grade of briar compare with a lower grade? Esthetically different (PSB...

    Pipe Belt Holster

    No, but don't remember where. I was thinking it would be handy for camping, but health issues put the Jan bosh on that notion.

    Pipe Belt Holster

    I don't mind, didimauw, I got a kick out of the comments. And you're right, taking that pipe out of its holster these days might get you shot!

    I'll take that cash in small denominations now in a paper bag, mso...heh.

    In Praise of mso489

    I wanted to take a moment to thank that worthy gentleman, mso489, for his many tipsI over the years. I've adopted many items of advice, particularly wiping out the bowl of a pipe, preserving the bowl interior and rim, and my new Waterfords have never been better. So for that tidbit of advice and...

    Pipe Belt Holster

    Here's a unique, useful item for the fellow who can stand to be separated from his pipe. This handmade tough leather pipe holster can hold the larger pipe sizes (I wouldn't recommend a churchwarden) and can be threaded anywhere on your belt. Ideal for campers or working outside. $35 for cost, s/h.
