    Really Pleased with My Free Pipe from P&C

    HI, I put in an order that qualified for the free pipe promotion on P&C. I am extremely happy with it! I didn't have high hopes and I normally get my tobacco from another online source, but they didn't have a blend I was searching for in stock so I went with P&C. The pipe is a Royal Dutch (I am...

    First try of Penzance, what drink to pair with it?

    Pretty excited. Trying this blend for the first time. Want to make something special out of it. I am in the city of Montreal Canada for work, and am headed to a smoking lounge that serves alcohol. Any recommendations would be much appreciated!

I have watched the sun set, shared a bowl with a published temporal physicist, listening to his anecdotes of partying with Paul McCartney, shared a corona with a...

    bit of a pipe mystery for any one curious...

    Hi, looking for a little help tracking down the maker of the pipe below. I took the picture of the pipe below at the Chicago pipe show. I was trying to be responsible and not buy pipes on impulse without seeing all of what was on offer. I thought I was being clever by using my new phone to take...

    Are there any blends you can smoke and chew?

    I've heard in a few places that sailors created and or used the plug and rope format of pipe tobacco and that they would chew the tobacco when it wasn't possible to smoke and smoke the tobacco in thier pipes when they had the time and conditions to do so. If that is true, are there any blends...

    Briar Curing?

    hi all, was hoping some one could explain this concept? Just read an article that mentions curing, oil, air and kiln curing, I haven't come across much information on this subject. How is curing achieved, how long does the process take, is it done before or after the briar is drilled? What is...

    4 new shapes From Peterson

    For all the Pete nuts out there here is a piece of gossip. I was recently at the factory for a tour and while there saw a photo on the factory floor of 4 new shapes being added to the Sherlock Holmes range. The first thought that jumped to mind was to snap a pic of the photo and then "leak" the...

    CBW alternative

    I have enjoyed CB White, the taste and "easy smokingness" of it are very appealing. Also I have found that it is very easy to come by. However I have been put off by the "chemicallyness" of it. I am in search of a similar experience - pleasing room note (so I can smoke in company without taking...
