    Is Your Tobacco Cellar Large Enough to Outlive You?

    Is 56 pounds in the cellar enough at 45 years old? Asking for a friend. :LOL:

    Nasal Snuff

    When I was last in Ireland they sold snuff at a lot of pubs, we bought some for fun and I really liked it. I tend to like the menthol ones since IMHO they give you a brain freeze wake up and don't tend to make my nose stuffy. I was driving my company vehicle this morning and wanted a pipe for...

    Stonehaven: Plume Or Mold?

    Ah, the age old conversation once again. I recently jarred a bag of Stonehaven, I believe from 2017, (possibly 2018) and it had almost that exact same plume on it. Yes, I believe it to be plume and not mold, however I have not looked at it under a small microscope yet. I agree this is the...

    End of Bowl Procedure

    Personally I like to set the freshly smoked pipe in a potted plant near the back door of the house, still smoldering with dottle, possibly after giving it a quick swab with a pipe cleaner, but not always. There it will sit until about 8 pipes have collected and then I will clean all of the...

    Storing Plum Pudding Special Reserve?

    Sometimes I like to break this one off into small chunks, it still smokes great regardless of not rubbing it out all the way.

    I Got Skunked!

    Oh no!! Hydrogen peroxide and baking soda plus a little dishwashing soap like dawn!! Our dog got it bad in the back yard a few months back and this worked after a few washings.

    Storing Plum Pudding Special Reserve?

    Personally I just chop it in blocks just skinny enough to fit in a jar, or use a wide mouth jar. I like to keep in in plug form for the most part.

    Estate Dunhill Pipe Over-Reamed With Small Cracks In Briar Will It Burn Out?

    @sablebrush52 I wondered if it would happen from a hot wet pipe. I think I will follow your advice and slowly build cake, I would rather not treat or coat it. @shaneireland Thanks Shane, I know they were a rare shape, and I think it's really a cool pipe. It also is light as a feather. I...

    Estate Dunhill Pipe Over-Reamed With Small Cracks In Briar Will It Burn Out?

    @BROBS I definitely don’t think smoking pipes caused any of the over reaming or cracks. I do think they are heat fissures that were possibly formed under the cake. And I think I would rather carefully build cake rather than coat the bowl. That being said @georged I really appreciated the...

    Estate Dunhill Pipe Over-Reamed With Small Cracks In Briar Will It Burn Out?

    Thanks for the information guys. Do you know if it’s normal for cracks to develop in an older briar under the cake?!

    Estate Dunhill Pipe Over-Reamed With Small Cracks In Briar Will It Burn Out?

    I recently bought this pipe from smoking pipes estates, it's my birth year Dunhill, a 1975 PO blackbriar, (it isn't so black anymore which adds some character IMO). If you look at the small crack on the left of the bowl you could probably put the tip of a pin in there. (I was unable get a...

    What’s Your Favorite Pipe Shape for English?
