    POY?

    Howdy all. I know that other similar forums do a pipe of the year. They solicit an artisan pipe maker to craft a pipe specially for the members. I've kicked this around with Raftergtex who is an active member here and a hell of a pipe maker. I speak from experience being lucky enough to own...

    Why is it called....

    Where did pipe shapes get their names? Some make sense. A Brandy for instance. OK I get it shaped like a snifter. And of course there's the ball, and the apple, and the horn, and likely other self explanatory ones I'm forgetting. And I've read that a Billiard was orignially shaped using lathes...

    Michael Gladis

    I watched these interviews when first posted last year. But went to give them another look last night. Very entertaining. The tone sort of reminds me of Jon Favereau's old show Dinner for 5 on A&E. Anyway...for those that might have missed it the first time...

    Absolutes of tobaccoreviews.com

    Like gravity, tax day and everyone's ultimate demise there are certain truths of the universe that are simply absolute. No arguments. No flexibility. They simply are. The same is apparently true in the world of tobaccoreviews.com. Here are some I've learned. 1) Every bowl that everyone but me...

    Blow Dryers

    Not a typical post title on this forum eh? Here's the deal. y'all will likely laugh me out of town. But I have recently found that some of my best smokes come when I take a blow dryer to the tobacco to speed drying. It doesn't seem to be just due to the drying. When I leave a blend to dry on...

    OKC shops?

    Heading up to Oklahoma City for a day or 2. Anyone know of a good shop there? I see they have a Tinderbox. But would rather find a "real" privately owned shop. RJ

    Fur and Feather get your oil out of my gulf

    Apparently British Petroleum thinks the Gulf of Mexico is a fine place to dump oil. I have therefore placed the entire British Empire on my official shit list. OK OK I know I know....it's not Great Britain's oil. BP is really just Ammoco. But still I gotta be pissed at someone and the British...

    Lorenzetti Pipes

    Any experience with these? I was putting off painting base trim this morning and window shopping ebay. I saw this guy with a whole bunch of nice estates listed. And one totled "Lorenretti" caught my eye. Based on the photos of the stamp I'm pretty sure it's a Lorenzetti which in my brief...

    Dottle

    Not sure if it's the weather change or if I'm doing something different. But I seem to be getting a lot of dottle lately. Just about every bowl lights and burns great until about 1/3 or 1/2 in. Then it starts to go out often and becomes relight city. When I dump the bowl there's a good 1/3...

    Need advice

    OK here's the deal. Awhile back I bought a Pete 120. I smoked it maybe a half dozen times and noticed it smoked pretty we with a variety of blends and moisture levels. And it was always difficult to get a pipe cleaner through. Always stuck at theshank. But I chalked it up to the P Lip and...

    Edward\'s pipes

    I bought an old Edwards on eBay today to practice cleaning, opening airways, maybe refinishing etc. It got me curious. I don't find much about them on the internet. One thing I read said that Edward's was a French pipe maker who sort of cornered the market on Algerian briar and then move the...
