    Should I jump on Esucudo at $6.75 a tin?

    They are very similar ... but cost less, particularly with a discount such as this one. I just finished a bowlful of Escudo and I just fold and stuff ... works well.

    The Nicest Ehrlich I've Ever Seen!

    Damn nice ... I'd love to have been in a position to bid on that pipe ... I'd seen it had lusted after it, and even had it on a watch list in case it went low, but just didn't have the budget to chase it and bid against the prevailing bidder who turned out to be ... you ... As it is, I'm glad it...

    Cigars as pipe tobacco

    To speak to the question of cigars as pipe tobacco, based on my experience, I think you'll find the results to be disappointing ... I love my pipes and I love good cigars ... I experimented with cutting a cigar and smoking it in one of my pipes ... disappointing is the best I can say about the...

    High Tech Woes

    Reminds me of the old joke where Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson go camping ... in the middle of the night, Holmes wakes Watson, saying "Watson, look at the stars! ... what do you deduce from that spectacular view?" Watson begins a lengthy reply in which he mentions the vastness of the Universe...

    Will Smoking a Pipe Help with Quitting Cigarettes?

    It worked for me ... Although I did not begin pipe smoking for the purpose of quitting cigs, it did work out that way ... In the process of exploring quality tobacco blends for the pipe, I became increasingly aware of just how utterly crappy the tobacco in cigs is ... not only is it a low...

    Your Favorite Brand of Pipes for a Quality Smoke????

    Brands, it seems to me, are anything but a consistent thing ... probably because pipes are made from a product that occurs in nature and irrespective of which maker did the conversion from root to pipe, the raw materials aren't all equal ... Case in point, the best single pipe I've ever owned...

    Using my mulligan ...

    That worked for me, but unintentionally ... I'd always been fascinated by the IDEA of smoking a pipe, though I'm not sure why ... during college years, I had a cheapo pipe and tried all the drugstore tobaccos in it, but didn't enjoy the experience at all ... it was after I got out in the 'real'...
