    This Pipe Is More Unusual Than Most

    I love Danish freehands more than any other style. But, I'm not so sure about this pipe. This is the first twin-bowl freehand I've ever seen. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390534678743&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1123 It has a certain unique/novelty characteristic thats sort...

    Buffalo Calf Woman

    I've always liked the Sioux story about how they received the most sacred of their religious objects. I have not always tried to smoke with enough contemplation and attention, but I've had a few of those indescribable moments with a pipe. I have either washed away a day's worth of stress...

    Fall Harvest Under Way

    I thought I'd post a few pics from the farm and share a bit about what we're doing now. 8) We make silage by chopping corn plants and storing them in silos. The plant material undergoes a fermentation process and the starches convert to sugars. Well made silage smells exactly like a sweet Va...

    Happy Birthday To Us!

    I'd like to take this opportunity to wish my fellow countrymen a happy 4th of July. I've been away from the forum for the past few weeks and meant to wish our northern brothers a happy Canada Day Sunday, so belatedly...congratulations as well!

    June 11, 1983.....

    I married my sweetie. Twenty nine years ago today. Lord, but we looked like kids. I guess we were kids. :laughat: Check out my 80's hair! We went on our honeymoon and I took this ol' Ben Wade Golden Walnut along on the trip. This is the sign of a hardcore piper...when you remember what...

    Mark Balkovec PAD

    I think this pipe is unique, lovely, with fantastic organic flow. As soon as I saw it, I was filled with pipe lust. :twisted: I know freehands aren't everyone's cup 'o tea, but they are my true love for a pipe shape. Its on the way from Smokingpipes.com

    Gift Idea

    I know I'm hard to buy for. I accept that. All my subtle hints last year netted me 0 Christmas presents from you yahoos. Zip. Nada. Zilch. I resolve this year to suspend my gentle prodding and make straight up demands. SOMEONE BUY THIS FOR ME...

    Wessex Gold Virginia Flake

    Whenever I make an order, I always throw something completely new to me in to give it a try. I have never tried any Wessex blends and chose Gold Virginia Flake randomly. I like it! I've smoked it Ben Wade Golden Matt, Danish Pride, and Regal pipes. It has a nice Va grassy taste with a slight...

    Royal Cajun Blends

    I have been enjoying the three Royal Cajun blends from McClelland. I had avoided all Virginas for a long time until I learned how to smoke them. I always found straight Vas to be underwhelming in taste and too sweet and I was getting bit, a lot. Over the past year I have seriously been...

    Very Large Bari Handcuts

    Here are two large Bari Wiking Handcuts. Both pipes are 8 inches long with 2 inch bowls. The Volcano has excellent straight grain around the bowl and fantastic birdseye on the broad base underneath. I love the way this pipe feels in the hand. It has a wonderful organic free form and I like...

    Smoke As A Curative

    Giving The Pipe A Short Rest Is Better In The Long Run

    Its been a long week on the farm. I haven't smoked since last Sunday night. This evening I loaded a pipe with some Westminster and took a glass of iced tea and sat back to reflect on the week past and the week ahead, but I had trouble concentrating. I kept getting distracted by the pipe...

    Morning Fire On Our Farm

    I woke up at 2:30AM this morning to load cattle we had scheduled for a delivery to a Tyson packing plant in Illinois. I got back home around 4:00AM, did some book work, and then decided to take a nap before breakfast. I was sleeping in my chair when my wife, Leesa, screamed "FIRE". This is...

    An Ivarsson Stanwell and a Karl Erik Sitter

    Nanna Ivarsson, daughter of Lars Ivarsson and granddaughter of the famous pipe maker Sixten Ivarsson, carves for Stanwell. They are one of the premier Danish carveing families. Nanna is the only family member continuing the tradition. She carves under Stanwell's brand, but gets a distinctive...

    Canoeing In The Boundry Waters

    I'm in Moose Lake, MN. I'm off the farm and about to start a long awaited canoe trip. WOHOOOO!!! I'll be plying some of the same waters as the historic Voyageurs. If you read the article, note the section titled "Daily Life" and see how important pipe smoking was to these men...
