    Sourcing Deer Tongue 12/5/2020

    I just threw away a 1/2 tin of Gentlemen Caller. It had less Deer Tongue in the tin than Crooner. I found it very bland and couldn't even taste the Deer Tongue. Thanks for the info! I'll look harder.

    Sourcing Deer Tongue 12/5/2020

    I know this has been asked here before, but I don't believe I've seen a definitive answer. Does anyone know of a source to purchase Deer Tongue? I love the stuff and want to be able to add it to blends. Crooner got me hooked, but I've noticed they appear to be using less of it in the blend...

    Does Everyone Check Auction Sites, Where Else?

    You may want to check out Smokingpipes.com/EU. You can send the pipe you want to get rid of, and they will give you store credit (more) or cash (less). That way you could purchase a pipe from them, new or estate, minus the amount of your credit.

    Blue Room Briars Is Amazing

    I am fortunate to call Jesse and Scott personal friends. I met them both when they were both still at Smoker's Haven. I commissioned my first pipe from Jesse right after they struck out on their own, and now own five! If you don't see any estate pipes there that catch your eye, seriously...
