    Canada Post, This Was Too Much!

    I don't post on this forum often though I've been a member for a while. But I had to post this. Last time I listened to the Pipes Magazine podcast Brian was talking about churchwarden pipes. I decided to get one. I traded a few estate pipes for a Ropp Balzac from Smoking pipes and all it costed...

    Save Tobacco Packaging in Canada

    Hi All, here is an important request to all Canadian members and those with smoking pals here in our part of the continent. Our lovely ministers seems to be pressing forward towards a "healthy" alternative to life and though it seems we cannot stop them, we can at least offer some resistance...

    Chicago Show 2015

    Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone is planning on attending the show but hasn't gotten a room yet (or wants to save by splitting one). I have a double room booked as that was all that was available for my time frame. I'll be there from Wednesday night until checkout Monday morning...

    New Pipe

    If anyone remembers the Dunhill I scored on a recent trip to Victoria, this is what I traded it for at SP. I haven't begun the break in process yet but hope to tonight. It's a L'anatra Lovat. I had the urge to break in a new pipe and get to know it from the beginning, and this one was too good...

    For Long Time Pipe Smokers

    I just had a bowl in a pipe I'm breaking in when I noticed significant char around the rim. Not just color, the edge lost material. This was the first pipe with a sharp edge I've gotten new. I'm careful with lighting but the flame always licks the edge. I'm wondering, do these sharp edges ever...

    Two Pictures

    Foggy's beautiful creations have inspired me to share a couple sketches of mine. Hope you enjoy. This one was for a book though it didn't get in. It's inspired by the thinking man. I'm a Peterson nut! This was for an application for a program at school. Thanks for looking and thank you Foggy...

    In my opinion lovats are the perfect shape for a pipe. Besides these and the bigger bent pipes I call my "house pipes" I can't imagine buying anything else. Butz Choquin, new old stock from my local tobacconist. Peterson Killarny, I took the varnish off because it smoked hot. I've noticed...

    Charatan Estate Pipe

    I just bought a Pre-Lane Charatan and am thinking about selling it. I was just wondering what something like this would go for. Are there any big time Charatan collectors that would have an idea about the monetary value? The nomenclature reads Charatan's Make London, England DE LUXE and the...

    For new smokers

    First, I would like to say that there are a lot of great videos and articles on this site that everyone should check out if they have not already. Second, here are 2 videos from the tobacconist I frequented when I first started the pipe until I moved away from home:
