    In Memory of Matches860

    The news of Matches (aka: John Harden) having passed into the next stage of his existence has caused a lot of folks to think of him and what he has meant to their pipes and tobaccos experience. That John was reportedly only 64 yrs old should give us all pause to consider our own limitations and...

    Vertical Marketing, Supply & Demand, Brand

    Ok, so, I used to drink beer. Sometimes I even drank in public. Once I went to a 'pub' with a weekly trivia contest as a guest of regulars. We all got stupid, or at least I did. I was having a blast, until about 2 hours in, the waitress announced to our table that there was no more Budweiser. I...

    A Birthday Surprise From a Forum Friend

    I recently clicked another yr on the ageometer and was very pleasantly surprised to receive a hand made maple billiard. I can die a happy man now, cuz I got a Besse from Red Deer Alberta!

    Just Under An Ounce A Day

    Just under an ounce a day. That's how much tobacco I burn. I smoke about 7 or 8 bowls I guess, on average...and I've read that the average pipe which I am assuming is a group 4, requires approx. 3 grams of tobacco. So, that computes to just under a half pound of tobacco a week, with some...

    New Year's Resolution

    No more smoking inside my place. I had the kids here for a visit around the Holiday season, and I didn't smoke inside then, as they are all non smokers. After their departure, I realized that I probably might be better off continuing to smoke outside. The air quality inside is obviously...

    Discovery Leads to Learning

    I bought a B. Barlings & Sons estate pipe (#4065) a couple of years ago, and I smoke it from time to time. It easily passes a pipe cleaner, has a comfortable stem, incredible finish and as I looked more closely at it while I was out in the sunlight, I noticed some printing on the underside of...

    My Favorite Pipe

    My favorite pipe has been a Lorenzo Standard half bent rusticated billiard. This a.m. during a routine maintenance of it's insides, I broke the shank at the mortise while simply replacing the stem. I was watching my computer screen and listening to something and as I pushed the stem rather...

    Menthol Pipe Tobacco

    I started smoking pipes (plural) after many years of struggle with cigarettes. I've never been a fan of menthol. However, I have been a fan of tobacco taste and smell. Like most of us, I've enjoyed sampling as many of the blends as I could during my first years in this 'sport', and I've...

    Czech Tool Wizardry

    I use the pick part of my Czech frequently to clear an airpath through my tobacco after having charred and smoked a portion of my initial 'pack'. Typically, I'm smoking a crimp, ribbon, or shag cut or a mix of these presentations and they tend to expand and choke themselves after a char if I...

    Pipe Smokers Can Be a Sentimental "Lot"

    Motivation? Why do you enjoy pipe smoking? The answer(s) are myriad, but, those of us who persist include a certain amount of emotional gratification. This can be derived from loyalty, or memories, or shared values amongst fellow pipers. *Gramps used to smoke a pipe, and Gramps was...

    Pipes AND Tobacco

    I have been really enjoying both aspects of pipe smoking in the last 3 yrs since I became 'woke' to the process. Pipes have been a large part of my interest, but really, they're secondary to what gets burned in them. I've been trying to become sufficient in the cellar department as...
