    Caption Contest 2 Place Prize

    My 2nd place prize from last months caption contest came in last Friday. I wasn't able to get pics posted until today. As you can see, this is a nice size pipe with a rusticated finish and good thick walls. I am very happy with this Sav because it is not a shape I would have picked out for...

    1st Rad

    After listening to Harris extoll the virtues of Rad Davis pipes so much that I am convinced he is, in reality, Rad's publicity manager, I decided to take the bait. I had to save up and then wait for a Rad to come along that appealed to me. I really like Billiards, Canadians and Pots, so when...

    Contest Pipe Arrived (Pic Heavy)

    My prize from the last Caption Contest arrived yesterday. It is a Brigham Chinook #29 which is kind of a bent apple. This pipe is great, well made, open draw. It is smoking wonderfully even though I have just started breaking it in. Cool, dry, the flavor of the tobacco shines through. I have...

    Terrible Monday

    As if Monday's aren't bad enough, I received terrible news today. Last Wednesday, when we got home from work, my wife and I noticed that one of our dogs muzzle looked swollen. Upon examining her mouth, we found her front gums very swollen. Took her to vet Thursday morning and was told they...

    P & C Great Customer Service

    I recently placed an order with P&C which arrived today. I ordered GLP Navigator, Frog Morton Celler, Nightcap & SPC Plum Pudding. They sent SPC Mississippi River instead of Plum Pudding. I gave them a call and they are shipping the Plum Pudding first thing on Monday and said to keep the...

    Horst Lichter's Espressotabak

    There was a recent thread about coffee flavored tobaccos and this blend was mentioned. I decided to give it a try. This blend comes from Germany and is made by Vauen. It is a blend of Burley, Black Cav & VA. Upon opening the tin the coffee aroma is so strong I thought I was next to a coffee...

    A Boswell Non Aromatic

    While a lot gets said about Boswell's aromatics, and for good reason as they are great, I don't see much mentioned about any of their non aros. If you like burley blends you should give their Premium Burley a try. Very enjoyable smoke, nice nutty taste and burns great.

    Contest Pipe Arrived (pics)

    My Sebastien Beo pipe from the Cartoon Caption contest arrived yesterday. Very nice 6 sided bowl. This is a pipe that is on the small side but that makes it great for when I don't have time for a large bowl, also great for sample smokes. Excellent workmanship, spot on drilling, great fitting...

    Two New Wins From Ebay

    Here are two I scored from Ebay recently. First, a nice Aldo Velani Next is a GBD that I really like. This one was very gunked up, especially the stem. It took me 3 evenings of soaking it and working little by litte to be able to get a pipe cleaner through it. It was well worth it though...

    H&H Obsidian

    Does anyone have any experience with Hearth & Home's Obsidian? I ask because I just received the 2oz. I ordered to sample and it is bone dry, very crunchy. I was wondering if this is the way it's supposed to be or if I got a bad order. Thanks

    Pipe Mud Question

    In raising the bottom of a chamber to better match the draft hole, is it better to apply the mud to a dry bowl or should it be slightly dampened? Thanks

    Two GBD Estates

    I picked up a couple of GBD estates last week. I have never tried them before, that and the price is what made me give in and get them. First up is this 1353 shape, I would guess it is in the saucer family, any one knowing more feel free to share. It smokes very nice and only needed a minimum of...

    Halfling's Leaf

    When I tried my sample of Halfling's Leaf I posted that I thoroughly enjoyed it and gave it big thumbs up. I ordered 4 oz. recently. I have to say I was curious if this was a one time fluke. It's one thing to come up with a good blend but I think it's quite another to be able to duplicate it on...

    Molto Dolce from Sutliff Private Stock

    I received a free tin of this from Altadis. This is a blend of Burley, VA & Black Cav flavored with caramel, vanilla & honey. The aroma from the tin is very sweet with the vanilla and caramel very predominant. Ribbons of black, dark brown and a smattering of reddis brown. This blend was quite...
