    Calling All Sasieni Experts - Interesting One Dot with a 1925 Patent

    I acquired this One Dot recently. I have questions on it's pedigree 1. The patent no is not clearly stamped. However in the pipe I can read it to be ....13/25, which I take it to a 1925 patent. It is about the time One Dots we’re stopped being sold in America. So is this an American or...

    I Think SmokingPipes Black Friday Sale Is Good

    Strong Tobacco?

    I tried Old Dark Fired today. Some has suggested that this is strong. However, I found this to be medium. The strongest I have smoked so far is SG Black XX. I also have one tins worth of SG Brown #4 in the cellar. Any other strong tobacco recommendations? (Preferably ribbon cut or flake)

    Post transition Sasieni

    There is a post transition Sasieni currently listed on eBay. No one found it yet, as the seller has not mentioned the right keywords. I understand that they are not collectible. I don’t need any more pipes. Is it worthwhile to bid on it?
