My wife doesn't like the smell of pipe tobacco I smoke English/Balkan/Oriental blends. Once in a while when it rains or snows I want to smoke on the porch what tobacco smells good to non-tobacco people? I don't care about the taste in smoking I will smoke it in my old cob.
The Savinelli balsa wood filters are very malleable they pretty much fit my other non-filter pipes pretty well with a little squeezing is there any reason not to use these filters in other non-filter pipes?
All my favorite English, Balkan, and Oriental blends (Black House, Presbyterian etc) are in in ribbon form are there any English, Balkan, Oriental blends that are worth smoking in the other cuts? Such as flake, cake, coin, plug, ready rubbed etc.
It is nothing like Chicago. I can walk in downtown Toronto at 3 AM. There is virtually no danger in this city compared to any American town. There are no bad neighborhoods there is always a mix of economic class. Not sure where you got your info from.
Since it doesn't look like I will ever get to try Penzance can you recommend something that might be similar and is available?
How does Penzance break down? Is it Latakia heavy? Is it more of an English or Oriental etc?
