    P&C 15% Off and Free Goodie Box IPSD Sale

    This is the first time I've been early enough on the deal to snag a goodie bag. Hope it is as good as they've been in previous years.

    Peterson Saint Patrick's Day 2016: My Two Cents.

    Great review Anthony. I actually started the tradition myself last year and was also disappointed with the pics of this year's pipes, but decided to purchase since I've been wanting a poker for a long time and didn't even know Peterson made poker's. I also immediately fell in love with the look...

    Molto Dolce, Initial Thoughts

    I enjoy MD as well, with my only complaint being how sticky it is. When using the air-pocket packing method, I literally have to put the pipe down after twisting the tobacco in to go wash my hands and then finish packing. i give it a day or so to dry in the bowl and it is delicious. I also...

    P-lip Conversion

    Based on suggestions in another thread, I just filed it down with a bastard file and it couldn't have been easier and I'm very happy with the results.

    I Gave In Again... Hilson PAD

    Ha, I've been obsessing over the 515 and just pulled the trigger. Was a toss up between that and the 503, which may also soon be added after seeing your pics, love the shapes in the Vintage series.

    Hilson Pipes

    I love my "Crown Achievement" Hilson I got through the Build Your Own deal on IPSD. Beautiful straight billiard with a generous bowl, 3 bowls in and couldn't be happier. I'm eyeing the straight Dublin as well.

    Baltimore B&M?

    Yep, Faders in Towson is your best bet, nothing really downtown. Give Ms. Shirley's a try for breakfast/lunch if you have the time.

    Fictional Characters who should have smoked Pipes

    It's animated, but Dr. Hibbert from The Simpsons would fit the bill for me.

    How to pronounce Dr. Grabow.

    Great point with this thread. I don't verbally communicate with any other pipe smokers and if not for hearing the correct pronunciations from Brian on the radio show, I'd still be saying Grab-o and la-tackia.

    Crown Achievement Pipe Help

    Thanks for the confirmation Russ, glad to hear you've enjoyed them. Can't wait to receive it with the rest of my IPSD haul.

    Crown Achievement Pipe Help

    Thanks papipeguy, yeah, there is no mention in the description, it was just mentioned by a reviewer so wanted to make sure. I was surprised when one was on my Sasieni and was relieved when I could just pull it out, I'd be shocked if it weren't the same way with the Crown Achievement.

    Crown Achievement Pipe Help

    Though the goodie bags have run out on P & C, it's still a great deal and am interested in the Crown Achievement pipe, but had concerns about the stinger I read on one of the reviews.....does anyone know if this is the type of stinger that can just be pulled out like in the new Sasieni's, or is...

    Beef Stew

    Ha, the reason I clicked on this topic was to see if someone actually released a tobacco blend named "beef stew" and if it was as bad as it sounded. Nice looking recipe though.

    I'll smoke to that!

    Around 11 pm after my daughter's late night bottle and it's not windy or raining. Another bowl gets fired up if I have a lot of school work and the morning at work doesn't look too bad. It definitely feels like I am more efficient working on any "thinking" project with a pipe burning.

    Tobacco Drying Out?

    I know that many prefer their tobacco on the dry side. I kept a tin of Eileen's dream for much longer than 4 months in the unsealed tin and it only got better the drier it got.....just don't let it turn to dust.

    I don't know Jack.

    Congrats on your discovery Ranger, but what that post really makes me want is a habanero pork tenderloin and cabernet....sounds delicious.

    To P-Lip or Not to P-Lip...'Tis the Question...

    I had reached the boiling point with my frustration with the only P-lip I have and after finding out all you have to do is file down the button with a bastard file, I made this modification and I absolutely love this pipe now. Seriously only took a $6 set of files and about 10 minutes, and I am...

    Grandpa's tip

    My dad would do this and it didn't seem right when I was 4, and it doesn't seem right to me now, haha. It worked for him and making sure my pipe is free of tobacco after each smoke works for me.
