    Best Pipe for Aromatics

    I fully agree. I also do smoke aromatics without filter, but I look out for a good tobacco base, like in the Lakelands or the HUs This applies more to that glue-like Black Cavendish stuff.

    Best Pipe for Aromatics

    @aquadoc @Chasing Embers Here in Germany, where most pipe smokers smoke with filter, this is common sense. I have found a good explanation from German Pipe blogger Ralli and will DeepL it in here: New recipes that were not so "new" saw the light of day in the world of specialised trade...

    Best Pipe for Aromatics

    Agreed. I suppose every pipe with a larger chamber diameter is helpful there. And of course be aware that most aromatics (at least of the Danish variety, Mac Baren and the likes) are designed to be smoked with filter, so they do produce more liquid.

    There’s no bad Pipe Tobacco

    Yes, same here. I would say it depends of one's understanding of "bad". There is nothing intrinsically "bad" about Maggi soup cubes, in terms of that they will give you food poisoning, but when you compare it to a self-cooked broth from a chicken and fresh vegetables, there is a large...

    Have You Ever Regretted Selling a Pipe?

    Not real regret, but probably today I would have kept my Les Wood Spigot which I had scored at eBay for a ridiculous bargain price and sold right away to make a quick buck. But that's how the spirit of a collector evolves, at the time it felt right because I that considered it insane to own a...

    Hallo aus Bayern!

    Oh DHL does ship tobacco, the problem getting it to the States lies with Customs and U.S. Postal. I have put down my experiences here: https://pipesmagazine.com/forums/threads/terrible-experience-with-shipping-and-customs-from-europe-to-the-us.83628/

    Danish Semi-Freehands - Best Value for Money

    Hi, anyone else who likes the typical so-called Danish Semi-Freehands, meaning pipes from the 70s or 80s that were made from pre-drilled ebauchons but then hand-carved and finished? For me these pipes are the best all-day pipes. Great design, fabulous smokers and really way underpriced at the...

    NAAFI Pipe Tobacco

    Still looking for the occasion to crack it... I used to have a NAAFI tin of Gold Block as well but I swapped it for a Radice rusticated pipe...

    Germain’s Chat With a Tobacconist

    A well-known German pipe-blogger spends some time sailing in the Channel every year and tried the same. All he came back with was a recommendation for a top restaurant in St Helier :ROFLMAO:

    WTB/WTT (EU) - Esoterica and other Germains (5-26-22)

    Hi all, Here on the continent we are lacking a lot of good stuff that seems to trade well within UK/US. I'm really envious when I see so many ads with "CONUS only". 😳 So I am reaching out to my fellow EU pipesmokers and those who have a soft spot for the old world to supply me some of those...

    Hoi from Switzerland.

    As I said - you could easily order, at least as long as you didn't become greedy and ordered more than 3 tins per shipment - since 1st of July this exception is gone.

    Hoi from Switzerland.

    It's a lottery. Since Brexit, they are really hard on shipments from the UK. I even had one declared as gift with no mentioning of tobacco (just "tins") from a trade with a UK smoker being returned to sender. Commercial tobacco shipments are often being seized or heavily taxed, the old rule...
