    Dunhill Black Spot

    Hey Everyone, I just purchased a Dunhill with a black spot. Does anyone know much about the history of a black spot or why they are there? Just curious. The seller told me that he believes that chemical changes caused the once ivory White Spot insert to change color. Any and all help would be...

    Too Many Pipes... Is It Possible?

    Hey Everyone, Now you may call me crazy for ever even thinking such a thought, but I want to know if you think that one can have too many pipes. Yes, it is always nice to get a new pipe.

    Happy Halloween

    Happy Halloween fellow pipe smokers. It is sad to know that all of the people out east will not be able to enjoy such a great holiday this year in the same way that many of us including myself will. I pray that their recovery is quick. Today when you are eating your candy with your family or...

    Thrift Stores.

    Hey everyone, Been a while since I've made a thread so I figured I'd give it a go. Recently I made a YouTube video in which I talked about thrift stores and how much I like them. You can go to a thrift store (aka secondhand store) such as The Salvation Army Store or Goodwill and get some awesome...

    First Day

    Hey everyone, Today is my first day in my dorm and so far so good. Really looking forward to school and everyone was right when they said that I would be too busy and excited to worry about my current situation. Off to a good start and I plan to keep it that way!

It sure seems like quite the...

    Pipe Making Apprenticeship

    Hey everyone, There seem to be more and more talented pipe makers showing their pipes to the world every day. I never worked with wood too much as a child although I had daily opportunities simply because I was lazy. Now though, I have this great respect for pipe makers and there is an inner...

    Hey everyone, Just wanted to ask you all one quick question. How do you personally go about avoiding oxidation? Do you have and special remedies for preventing the terrible disease from plaguing your stems? I apply obsidian pipe stem oil to my stems (sorry if I spelled it wrong but I don't...

    Chantix... It's working... I hope!

    Hey everyone, I am moving onto my fourth day on Chantix, and I have to say that it seems to be working for me quite well.

    Frequent Alcohol Cleanings?

    Hey everyone, Recently saw a post about using rubbing alcohol to clean pipes and it got me to thinking. I used to use alcohol every time I cleaned my pipes, given that this could be after every smoke or even a couple days apart. Recently when talking to some other pipe smokers, they informed...

    Skype

    Hey everyone, It cannot be denied that over forums and YouTube you are limited as to what sort of friendship you can create simply due to the technology barrier. We can get pretty damn close to the real thing but it doesn't quite satisfy me. skype is, in my honest opinion, the best way that...
