    Smoking Inside the House

    My dad passed away 2yrs ago now and he is the one I talked pipe smoking with. Everytime I return home, I can still smell his pipe tobacco scent lingering in the air. He used to smoke Royal Tivoli until it was discontinued and then switched to Amphora regular. Nice memory.

    Okay To Use a Filter Pipe Without a Filter?

    I have a Husky Medico pipe that is made for a filter. My father was also of the opinion that filters were not worth using, so grew up with that. However recently tried Brigham's Rock Maple Distillator for the fun of it. What a smooth smoke. I think your safe with or without, but enjoyed this brand.

    Tight stem

    I bought a Peterson Donegal Rocky pipe X105, It is a straight billard style. Great pipe except for the fact that the stem is a really tight fit into the shank. Very difficult to turn or remove. Any suggestions as to what I can use to make it turn more smoothly?

    Siverts -Brick and Mortar Store in Halifax NS Closing

    Sadly Sieverts in Halifax, one of the only brick and mortar pipe tobacco shops in Nova Scotia is closing. Staff were always friendly and knowledgeable about pipe smoking. I even took a flea market pipe to them, when I couldn't get any draw out of it and they fixed it at no charge.

    Seattle Plum

    Great comments. It actually does smoke well. Just very different than what I am used to. I will have to try the new Amphora Burley for sure.

    Seattle Plum

    So I ordered this tobacco based on the name and the fact that I was born in Seattle originally. Being the romantic I am I thought that it would smell like plum pudding. Boy was I wrong, it's aroma is more reminiscent of old dirty socks or dead fish. However is a nice smoke, so can't have...

    With Pipe and Book

    Love this tobacco. Went a couple of days without as I waited for it to arrive. Perfect Black Cavendish. A great sweet smoke. Nice to have my pipe and tobacco again.

    Tolkien's tobacco( almost)

    Just got some Capstan Ready Rubbed from Cup of Joes. I know that Tolkien smoked Capstan Blue, but this was close as I could get. I smoked it in my churchwarden pipe and imagined I was a wizard.

    Any Guitar Players Amongst Us? I'd Like Your Opinion.

    I have an Art&Lutherier guitar. Made by the same company that makes SimonPatrick and I believe Seagull. Best sounding guitar that I have ever played. Solid Cedar top and cherry wood back and sides. I would choose the Seagull as you are guaranteed a quality sound. Yamaha is also not a bad guitar...
