    Finally got to try some. I don't know that I've had a tobacco with a thicker, creamier smoke. Very nice, light flavor and aroma to it. Thanks for the recommendations all.

    Just had My First Bowl of Haddos Delight

    And I gotta say that I didn't think I was going to like it from the tin note. Not a big fan of that. It was pleasant, but it was just too..."rich" I guess is the right word. Loaded up the pipe (Grabow Freehand) and went to town with it. The first third of the bowl was about what I was expecting...

    My Bob Gilbert Pipe

    I met Mr. Gilbert in Denton, TX while I was on vacation. He made this one of the most difficult pipe decisions ever because he had at least 40 pipes all laid out for me to choose from, but this is the one I went with. I didn't feel comfortable bringing it back with me to Afghanistan and forgot...

    Just Won 2 New Pipes on Ebay

    The top one is a Stanwell Legend and the bottom is a Peterson Kildare. This will be my first Stanwell so I'm pretty excited about that.

    H&H Magnum Opus

    I'm not even going to try to do an actual review on this but I'd like to say that I really liked this blend. Smoked it in my Neerup ( and it was one of the better blended smokes I've had. I think several kinds of major leaf are...

    Fun Fact About Andrew Jackson's Wife

    I just started reading a book called "Stupid American History: Tales of Stupidity, Strangeness, and Mythconceptions" and on the first page it says "Andrew Jackson's wife, Rachael, was the only first lady who smoked a pipe."

    New Pipe Smoker in the Family

    My cousin just got her husband his first pipe. I like to think I influenced that decision since I always carry extra pipes and always make him smoke one when we're out ;)

    Estates: Breaking In?

    The title pretty much says it all. I should be getting some estate pipes in. Is it necessary to break those in with partial bowls? I've heard several reasons for doing this 1 being bottom cake build up which would make me think you would need to break it in. But the other reason I've read is so...

    Woot! New Pipe

    I decided to order a few cheap estate pipes for on base so that if they get lost or stolen or something it's not such a big deal. Just won this: Anybody know what the deal is with that bit? I've never seen one quite like that. I'm bidding on a couple others too so hopefully more new pipes to...

    Straight Tobaccos

    So another thread (about English blends I think) reminded me of something I've been meaning to ask. I really don't know what kinds of tobacco I'm tasting other than virginia and latakia when I'm smoking. Would it be recommended to order something like the mclelland blending tobaccos so I know...

    I'm Back!

    Spent a glorious week in Europe and 4 full, action packed, fun filled weeks at home and now I'm back in good old Afghanistan. I got quite a bit of smoking done while I was gone :D The short story is that I tried about a dozen pipes and my favorites were my Vauen straight volcano, Johs bent...

    New Savinelli Autgraph Value?

    I have an opportunity to get one of these for under $200 but I have no idea if that's a good price. Its a 2009 series 5. Closest thing I can find is this but the one I'm looking at has no bamboo, no bend, no sand blast/rustification. Sorry, I can't get a pic right now. Any idea what the value of...

    My First Really Pleasureable Non-Aromatic Smoke

    Just finished my 4th half "break in" bowl of the Mac Barens London Burley. It still isn't everything I'd hoped for but I finally started getting some really good flavor out of it. I'm terrible at describing this stuff but I'd say I was getting some really good "nutty" flavor out of it. Hopefully...

    Quick Aging Question

    I assume I should go by the date on the back of the tin for cellaring purposes right (instead of the date I received it)? Also, if I ordered a tobacco that was aged before it was sold from the manufacturer will the date on the back reflect that or will it not? In other words: do they do the...

    Fair Warning

    A cure for PAD/TAD is not to buy pipes and/or tobacco and have them sent somewhere half way around the world that you won't have access to for a while :) I ordered a couple of cheaper pipes off of and they came in today! Just opened them and everything is looks great. Also, they...

    How do you find new pipes?

    I've seen some really cool looking pipes from some of the members of this forum and I was curious where you do your shopping. I've been keeping an eye on all the sponsors and ebay but you guys come up with some seriously cool stuff. Is it B&M or do you just have some google search phrases that...
