    Hasta La Vista Gents.

    I've come to the conclusion that if I want to keep breathing I need to quit smoking. In order to do that I will sell off most of my collection. Those I don't sell will be locked up somewhere so I can't get to them. I've already started the process,which will most likely take a few months--I'm...

    Linkmans Special Punch Board Display.

    I picked this up on Ebay a while back and finally got it filled with pipes-- and cigarettes. This display was never used, all of the punch holes still have the little slips of paper in them although a couple of them are open. I didn't have enough Grabow "Specials" to fill it but the guys over at...

    New Tamper Listing On BriarBid

    Listed a new tamper tonight. This is made from from a material I've never used before but really like so far. It's called "Inlace Acrylester" and is used a lot in pen making. The patterns in this one remind me of briar. Color is called "Russet"- I call it red, and has tiny metal flakes...

    MTHanded--A Class Act!!

    Opened my email inbox this morning to find an email from Cigar International. Couldn't figure out why as I don't smoke cigars and have never been to their website. Almost deleted it,glad I didn't!! Turns out Rick had purchased a gift card from them for me! Couldn't find any PA or CH on their...

    Briar Purchase

    Thought I'd relay the good experience I had with a recent purchase of some briar pen Blanks. Found a listing for the pen blanks on Ebay and contacted the seller about shipping on four pieces. He gave me a good price for the shipping so I ordered four blanks. He sent them priority mail and sent 6...

    My latest attempt at pipe carving.

    My latest attempt at pipe carving. Kind of a pregnant bent billiard. Probably should have taken more off the "cheeks"--the area where the shank and bowl meet-- and rounded the bottom more,but I do all my shaping with files and sandpaper and got tired of filing and sandpapering!! Top of shank has...

I need to find three more Commodores to fill the card on the diplay--holds six.Problem is that Commodores are rather hard...

    Ace57's Ventilator--refurb.

    A while back Rod contacted me to see if I'd like to have a Medico ventilator to make another tamper from. Once I got the pipe and took a good look at it I decided it was just to nice to cut up and make a tamper from. So I decided to refinish it.Thanks Rod!
