    Pipe Smoking in Hong Kong, A Brief Trip Report

    I recently returned from a 2 week trip to Hong Kong with a 1 week trip to Huizhou China in the middle of that. I thought I'd write a trip report for the enjoyment or perhaps boredom of everyone here and maybe share a few pictures as well. I took a empty 50gram tin filled about 1/2 way with...

    Anyone else like Longchamp pipes?

    I bought a pair of Longchamp leather wrapped pipes last year on EBay to give to Dad for Christmas. Well one was rougher than it looked in the pictures so I gave him the good one and kept the ugly one. I smoked it a few times but I didn't really care for it. At the time I was mostly smoking...
