    ***What Are You Smoking, August 2022?***

    Thank you. I actually have a present for you. I’m debating whether I should mail it, or wait until I am visiting Galicia.

    Dino just reminded me I forgot to wish Brewfan a Happy Birthday—I had meant to say something the other day when posting in this thread, but, forgot to add it after listing the tobacco and pipe. Happy Belated Birthday @Brewfan !

    Limited Edition Lee Star Grades

    The pipe! You had it listed as a 1977 Group 4 fishtail. I bought it around November of 2021 (your seller name was similar to your username here). At least I think it was most likely you.

    I should mention I believe I bought the Dunhill posted earlier from you before I joined this forum.

    Going to have @Humblepipe ’s (thank you!) Silverado Fire Loose Leaf in a Mastercraft Meerschaum Billiard and Silverado Fire Crumble Cake in a Mastercraft Meerschaum Prince. It’ll be interesting to compare the two versions. The Mastercraft box set comes with yellow and black stems. Initially, I...

    Hello from Central Texas

    Welcome from Pennsylvania and New York. TAD and PAD are often mutually enabled between members in this forum—not that that’s a bad thing.

    Hello from Iowa!

    Welcome from Pennsylvania and New York. From some reading I’ve done here, box passes are nice in theory, but, usually fail because someone messes up along the chain.

    Limited Edition Lee Star Grades

    I wonder if date codes were shunned to avoid spoiled milk syndrome—a friend of mine and I had a record company between 1989–2001—he was loath to put dates on releases because he felt people wouldn’t purchase them if they weren’t perceived as being new and fresh. You may have missed it in the...

    Going to have Sutliff Balkan Sobranie Original Mix Match in a Peterson Clay Bent Billiard Shape 8 (essentially a 313) with a P-lip stem.

    Going to have Cornell & Diehl/Warped Saint Espresso in a Big-Ben Jumbo Rhodesian. This is one of the few blends in recent memory that actually delivers the taste that the nose offers.

    This is my rare Dunhill/Pipe by Lee 1 White Spot/10 Star collaboration I posted in the WAYS thread back in December.

    ***What Are You Smoking, August 2022?***

    Going to have Prince Albert in a Dinant Prince Albert Figurative Clay Commemorative/Souvenir pipe from Belgium with a horn (orific) and cherry(?) stem, circa 1914 (my dedicated Prince Albert pipe for obvious reasons) while I work on an Elric of Melniboné illustration for a new Michael Moorcock...

    Dunhill question

    Value is determined by what someone is willing to pay. If someone has no interest in a smooth pipe, but, likes a sandblast, he might not be willing to spend much on the former. Supply and demand factors in—Peterson pipes for example: these days, you see very few smooth, light finishes offered as...

    Sounds like you’re smoking a York Peppermint Patty!

    My New Savinelli Miel

    And the pipe is pretty cool, too.

    Grain Under Solid Stain

    Yes, I know (I collect Longchamp pipes), but, they now had a signature look/identity. They stopped offering pipes in the late ’70s–early ’80.
