    A New George Boyadjiev Fish

    I just added the second pipe from George Boyadjiev @gbpipes to my collection. I went to his shop last week to hangout and discuss plans for my next commission when I saw this pipe on his workbench. He wasn’t quite done with it but I knew that I wanted it. I’m smoking a bowl in it as I type and I...

    George Boyadjiev (@gbpipes ) and my path crossed this September (check out the link below to find out more about that story). It did not take long for me to decide that I wanted to commission a pipe from him. Thankfully, it was not hard to decide on a shape because he and I both share a love for...

    A Serendipitous Encounter With Bulgarian Pipe Maker George Boyadjiev

    Earlier today I was in downtown Sofia, Bulgaria with Dal, @thepipesteward. We took a picture that he posted to a FB group. A short time later we were contacted by a Bulgarian man asking if we wanted to meet up for a pipe. Of course we did! Turns out that the man was George Boyadjiev, an artisan...

    Does Bijou Still Contain Vintage Leaf?

    We are all aware of the big hiccup that occurred with Bijou's release years ago. With that aside, it really is a great blend. I was looking to re-up my supply of this because all of mine are from right after the initial run and I am running low. However, it got me thinking about whether or not...

    Just cleaned up this Sasieni I found at an antique shop. I had a hard time trying to restore the logo on the stem, but did what I could. Do not know much about the pipe. If you have any idea please let me know. Before: After:

    Can’t Take Them All (Pipes Edition)

    I’ve mentioned in other threads that my family will soon be moving to Bulgaria. We are going to serve in a local church plant and a ministry that helps women who are victims of sex trafficking. As much as I would like to take all of my pipes and tobacco it is simply not an option (especially the...

    Help Date a Charatan & Barling

    Can anyone guess at the dates or era of these pipes based on the nomenclature? Neither stem has a logo. Thanks!

    An Unfortunate Break

    Was just unpacking my pipe bag and discovered that the tenon on this Barling snapped. The pipe was inside of a hard shell case, so I am not sure how this happened. Pretty heartbreaking nonetheless.

    New Non-Aromatic Cobblestone Offerings

    Noticed there are several new offerings in the Cobblestone line over at TP. The previous blends are all aromatics blended by Sutliff but these all appear to be Non-Aro’s made in Germany. Anyone tried these yet or have any info on them? Maybe @jiminks?

    So far SP has delivered on a number of collaborative efforts in commemoration of their 20th anniversary. We have seen a number of pipes and one tobacco. I am curious to know what they have left up their sleeve. What would y’all like to see? edit: two tobaccos but both were from the same company.

    Aged OGS

    I am curious to know how well this one improves with time. Can anyone speak to OGS after 5-10 years of age? I want to know if it is the kind of blend that drastically improves or just mellows out a bit?

    A Gift From an Old Co-Worker

    My old buddy that used to work with me at a B&M just drove down for a visit. This was awesome because it has been almost five years since we last saw one another. He is a dyed in the wool cigar smoker, but I could get him to smoke a pipe from time to time. When we met up he surprised me with a...
