    Pipe Shape Choice. Idea Vs Reality

    "The quandary is I enjoy the straight more but want to love the bent shape. Four pipes in I need to make a decision and agonisingly I am leaning towards straight." I'm not getting it. Why the agony? Why do you have to decide NOW? You have two of each style. So basically have available whatever...

I have four pipes and three tobaccos that I consistantly smoke. Three Petersons and one Winslow, one aeromatic and two Englishes...

    Waxed Vs unwaxed Meerschaums

    Who Are The Real Tobacco Snobs?

    To Ream Or Not To Ream...

    I use a pipe knife when I feel that I need to. I always leave some thin cake. I belive it helps protect the inside of the bowl. Sandpaper works well too. Just two words of advise.....SLOW & EASY. jef

    Cleaning Full Bent Pipes

    I run a pipe cleaner through my pipe after every smoke. I may load the same pipe again, but I still always run a pipe cleaner through it tha best I can. Once the pipe is cool I tear it down and clean it as thoroughly as I can. Once a month I dip pipe cleaners in some whiskey and run it through...

    Finding What you Really Like

    I like 1Q alot. I have been smoking it for about 4yrs now. However, I buy an ounce of another tobacco on most orders that I make just to try. Seems cavendishes are my favorites. Haven't found anything that I enjoy as much as 1Q yet. My next adventure is to try cavendishes from other blenders. jef

    Is it just me?

    To each his own. A man is entitled to his opinion. That is the beauty of America. However, another beauty is the fact that if I don't care for it, then I don't have to watch it. jef
