    Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture

    I am not a tobacco reviewer but this is the only tobacco I've smoked that I loved from the first bowl. It is mild and good for a smoke anytime of the day. Lot's of reviewer have said there was not enough perique in it but I smoke other blends for perique. This one I smoke for pure enjoyment.

    I enjoy exploring new tobaccos here but I wish some giving reviews would stop using initials and give the complete blend name. And I know when I find what some are I'll go DUH. So what is DNR, PSBF, HHAK?

    Made out like a bandit

    We are moving this weekend and my son came in from Charlotte to help. We began talking about pipes and he said he some pipes he'd try to sell on eBay. I never knew he'd smoked a pipe, I told him I'd buy from him. The subject changed and we went on to other things. We were cleaning out the...

    Tripoli buffing wax

    I found an old estate pipe at an antique store. I blasted it with a very fine media and cleaned up the stem. I then buffed both with tripoli wax. Does this wax cause any problems with smoking the pipe?

    I've been exposed to first hand smoke, second hand smoke and third hand smoke. Oh no, I'm going to die (someday)! :(

    One thing I've learned about tobacco blends!

    DONT GO BY FIRST IMPRESSIONS! In my short experience as a full time pipe smoker, of all the blends I've tried I've only found one I'll never smoke again, that was a sample aro from 4Noggins. It may taken a dozen bowls in various pipes to appreciate a blend.

    My new Devil Anse

    Made by Eric Paulson, great little smoker. I ask Eric why he used the hypodermic tube for the tenon on this, he said because of the diameter of the shank. That was kind of DUH! question on my part but I'm learning. Next on the list.. Style: Billiard Nose Warmer Length: 3.6" Bowl: 1.6" h x...

    Pet peeves

    What are yours? Two of mine are: people too lazy to put shopping carts in the rack & drivers who don't put their lights on in the fog or near dark

    Day to day tastes

    I wish I could know at the beginning of the day what going to taste good that day. I started the day with Royal Yacht, it taste like crap. I usually love it. Next went Escudo which I love, it tasted like crap. I then tried a bowl of Sutliff's Bosphorus cruise, it tasted great. Do others have...

    ZIPPO lighter

    When I smoked cigarettes I always used a brass Zippo lighter, had it for years. I gotta thinking I could get a pipe insert for it and use it on pipes. I contacted Zippo via email to see if I could buy a pipe insert only from them. They wrote me back and said to send to them and they will put the...

    Radio show episode #31 & reaming

    I've been catching up on the Radio Show and was listening to episode 31 where Brian talks about cleaning pipes. He says he will not use a reamer but chooses to use sandpaper instead, I've considered purchasing a reamer but the sandpaper idea sounds safer with a clean, smooth surface when...
