    Military Mount Commission

    Does anyone know of any artisan pipe makers who do military mounts? A paneled Musico billiard with army mount that got away, has been haunting me. I keep watching the new drops and haven't seen anything close come around for months. I figure another one may never come along that ticks all the...

    Trustworthy Tobacco Review Co: Frog Morton's Cellar

    In this edition of Trustworthy Tobacco Review Co's tobacco reviews, we're going to take a look at arguably one of the most popular pipe tobaccos to ever be produced, Frog Morton's Cellar. The tin art here features quite a strange scene. From the name on the tin "Frog Morton's Cellar" we can...

    Show us your Musico's

    I just received my second Musico today. Black Sandblasted Liverpool with Silver Band. Had a bowl of Victorian to break it in. It smokes very well. I have never really considered collecting a certain pipe maker, but this second Musico really has me considering it. Here's the new pipe pictured...

    Ludlow Saylor Wire Company Lovat Clean Up

    For background on this pipe, see here. Here are a few before and after shots. Just a simple clean up. First step was to remove the stinger. Used magic eraser followed toothpaste and a scrubber sponge to remove oxidation from the bit. Followed by a soft cloth polish with Decatur No-Ox stem oil...

    Promotional/Advertising Pipe

    I just won this little Lovat on Ebay. It's stamped "Ludlow Saylor Wire Company". The history of the company is really what drew me to this pipe. Having a nice little lovat that could smoke like a champ for $9 is also huge plus. Ludlow Saylor Wire Company was founded in 1875, and they...

    Eltang Basic Vs Nording Compass Vs Eltang Poker

    I'm going to go ahead and create this thread in anticipation of the arrival of an Eltang Basic I just ordered. I figured I will answer the question everyone has, and then answer a question I have, and possibly others. Question 1: How does the Eltang Basic compare to the Nording Compass? I do...

    Foundation by Musico Dealers

    Does anyone know where else you can buy Foundation by Musico pipes besides smokingpipes.com. I can't find anywhere except SP (US and EU) and the storefront in Italy. Any online dealers I'm missing?

    US Customs Regulations Regarding Wood

    Attempted to order a Taylor's Eyewitness Hardwood Barlow from the UK. Tracking went weird and when questioned, customer service sent this reply. First I've heard of anything like this. Has anyone else? I've definitely heard of restrictions on certain species etc. If this is true, does this mean...

    What's in the Window?

    What the heck is in the Window on the Elizabethan tin? Fried eggs? Nipples? Some by gone form of decoration I'm oblivious to? Serious answers only. ?

    Sandblast or Rustication?

    I was thinking back to when I first took up pipe smoking. I was a big fan of rustication, and I really didn't care much for sandblast. Now it's the other way around, and in my reflection I realized the reason why. When I was first starting out, I only looked at pipes within the lower end of the...

    Comoy's Cask No. 4 Discontinued?

    I stocked up a little on this one a while back, but haven't seen it in stock in ages. Has the Comoy's line of tobaccos been discontinued?

    USPS Signature Confirmation

    My wife just dropped a few tins off at the post office for me, and the guy working asked if it was tobacco. (Because he knows me ?) Anyway, he informed her that going forward, all tobacco would require an extra charge and a 21 and over signature confirmation. Has anyone else experienced this?

    FS: Quiet Nights and Plum Pudding Lot 10/29/21

    Ready Rubbed VA's and Va/Pers

    I love VA and VaPer flakes and broken flakes. From Union Square to Christmas Cheer. Lbf, Comoy's Cask No.4, HH Pure Virginia, Wessex Campaign Dark Flake etc. For some reason, I've never ventured to try anything Va that's not a flake. I was sent a sample of Bayou Morning, and didn't enjoy it...

    FS:1958/59 Dunhill Shell 38 FT 9/3/21

    Need some extra cash, so up for your viewing pleasure is a 1958/59 Dunhill Shell 38. Purchased as an estate and given a light cleaning. I've tried to capture stamping and condition as accurately as possible in the photos. (hence the flashlight) Some oxidation and minor chatter on the bit...

    Eltang Mini Arne Jacobsen with Horn

    I've been bitten by the Eltang bug. I have two of his Pokers and love everything about them. Lately I've been seriously considering trying to get a mini aj with horn. Anyone out there have one and wouldn't mind disclosing pros and cons? Mostly curious about how the military mount performs...

    Dunhill Stamping and Dating

    From everything I've read on pipedia, this appears to be a shell briar from 1955-60. Am I interpreting that correctly? Also, does anyone know what the stamp to the right of "Made in England" means? It appears to be a sickle inside a circle. This is the only picture from the eBay auction. I...

    WTTF/WTB EMPTY McClelland Arcadia and Honeydew Tins 6/28/2021

    Looking to round out my collection of Sherlock Holmes themed tobacco tins. Anyone have any empty Arcadia and or Honeydew tins? Not exactly sure what to value the empty tins at, but I'd be willing to work out a trade of Tobacco for the empty tins, or pay a fair price. I only need one of each.
