    Clickklick Lovat - Pipe #15 Review

    The Pipe Some time back, right around the time that Adam showed us his pipe #9 I contacted him about having a pipe commissioned. Adam and I discussed what I was looking for, a Lovat, and after a few PM's back and forth he ball was rolling. Adam explained to me the challenges of making the Lovat...

    C&D Sweet English

    Has anybody given this blend a try? I'm looking to capitalize on SP.com's 20% off C&D bulk sale and the description of this one intrigues me. I will probably order a couple ounces to try before going with a larger order but am curious to here from my fellow pipers on this one. What say yee? :puffy:

    BriarWorks PAD

    So there I was browsing SP.com when I see that BriarWorks has a new line of pipes out...the Classic. Started snooping around a little more and this little Rhodesian caught my eye. I've been wanting to add a Rhodesian to the rack and when I saw how reasonably priced this one was I threw it in the...

    New Ropp Vintage Briar Bulldog

    Well I once again gave in to the urge to buy one of these sweet little vintage pipes. This one is a Ropp Vintage Briar Bulldog with a horn stem. It is a very nice looking pipe with nice grain and no fills that I can see. The horn stem has great contrasting colour striations and has a slender...

    Canadian Box Pass Round 3

I'm willing to do the leg work on this myself and get it going again if the potential participants are okay with me driving the bus.

I also bought a pipe for my wife as she has been sitting and smoking with me a bit more lately. Group photo. Bruyere St Claude Extra Acorn. Great little pipe. Has a tiny...

    Photobucket Help??

    Hoping for help from a Photobucket expert. I just downloaded some photos to photobucket so that I could post them here on the forum. For some reason I cannot manage my photos anymore. Can't copy them to post here or delete old photos. When I move my cursor over the IMG code, or the other...

    No More Pipes Till May.....

    No more pipes till May....no more pipes till May....no more pipes till May!!! Or so I keep telling myself anyway. I'm trying to get my PAD under control or at least suppress it for a little while. I've bought 11 pipes since January 1st, and received 2 for Christmas also. I keep saying this one...

    GLP JackKnife Plug

    This is more of my experience with this tobacco than a true full on review. This tin was recently ordered and new to me and the packaging date on the bottom of the tin is October 27, 2015. This is my first time preparing and smoking a plug tobacco. Upon opening the tin I found the aroma to be...

    My New Pipe Cabinet

    I've been dabbling in pipe smoking on and off since the early 1980s. The last year or so I have gotten back into pipes with great enthusiasm. Accumulating several pipes, racks, tobacco and the myriad of goodies that goes along with the hobby. The top and bottom shelves of the end table next to...

    Paul,s Pipe Shop - Flint Michigan

    My wife and I went for a little Valentine's Day get away to Lake Orion Michigan a couple weekends ago. We live in Amherstburg Ontario, just across the border from Detroit so this was nice and close. I've been working crazy hours since Christmas so we haven't had a lot of time to spend together...

    GLP Quiet Nights

    Opened a tin dated 10/22/14 a couple weeks ago and I've been trying to become friends with it ever since. So far I haven't had much luck enjoying it. I will say that it's one of my first attempts at a "stronger" tobacco and I anticipated needing a few bowls to get used to it. It is also my...
