    Mystery Man Tobacco Insider for Last Radio Show of 2020

    Very much enjoyed the "history of Christmas Cheer"! What a great idea to have him do this! But, of course, I still think that the multitudes of McClelland Tobacco fans should lobby the McNiel's to include this as a chapter in THE BOOK, which I hope they are working feverently on! Happy New...

    The Book Came From Ireland.

    Gentlemen, This book - tho' yes completely about Peterson - pipes and people and it's history - is the most fabulous pipe related' book in the universe. You do yourself a disservice if you don't get a copy! Smoke a Peterson whilst marvelling at what you discover in it!

    Ian Anderson

    I was able to talk with Ian after a concert in Richmond years ago, to "interview" him for a CORPS newsletter (which never came out - we get behind on things). I assumed (ahem) that he was Irish. So, naturally, a Peterson, and by gosh, one would assume that the drink is Guiness! The fancier...

    English Oak Tobacco Cabinet

    I use, with wife's ok, a small, three drawer, chest of drawers for my pipes. with cloth lining the bottom of the drawers, the pipes are laid on their sides, yin and yang fashion. One drawer has three pipe racks the length of the drawer that allow the pipes to be at approximately a 45 degree...

    Chance Whittamore - Great Estate Pipes on eBay

    FYI: I received a (return)call from Chance Whittamore, master pipe restorer, and eBay seller Great Estate Pipes. If y'all have been looking on his eBay page for new pipes for auction/sale, well, he had a home disaster, unfortunately. But he and his family are ok! His house flooded -...

    Broken Pipe: Bruce Weaver

    I repeat what Georged said "Well, shit. New(er) guys: Bruce was a trail breaker and American pipe carving icon. Also a helluva nice guy. Everyone who's been around a while: We all know what we're thinking, so there's no need to write it. dammit dammit dammit " I remember Bruce being at the...

    Peterson History Lesson (via Mark Irwin)

    SmokingPipes.com has the boo11k - or did - as I bought my copy the day it was listed. Gentlemen (and ladies) - this book is FABULOUS!!! 374 pages, hundreds of pics, lots of lots of history, and insights to not only Peterson, but the pipe making world from the 1800's to present day! The book...

    Dunhill 838 patent-era ODA (diamond shank squat bulldog)

    The above pipe (the 838) arrived today! George's work on this pipe is even better in person than you see in the pictures! If you viewed the videos in the pipe repair section, you'll see the fine points that he sees, but I don't see (until he pointed them out). Am filling it up now for it's...

    Dunhill 838 patent-era ODA (diamond shank squat bulldog)

    re: Dunhill's 838 shape perfectly captures the concept "tastefully outrageous" imo. Very edgy in 2018... imagine the reaction they got in stuffy-conservative 1954! In my opinion (tho' as George knows) I am very partial to these ODA 838's (and God has been asked to bless George for his efforts)...

    Ken Barnes Returns To Finding The Grain - Pix Heavy

    re: The one on the lower right is the billiard that I very reluctantly sold. It's a beautiful pipe! Doggone, I knew there was a compelling reason to attend the WCPS. Why didn't I listen to myself....I would have loved to have a chance at that billiard.
