    May the 4th Be with You

    I originally commissioned these two Darth Vader briar pipes from Oguz Simsek last fall—one for me, and one for my friend Chris for his birthday at the end of March this year. Chris is going to smoke his today to celebrate Star Wars. I was planning on embracing my inner geek and smoking mine...

    Hi from PA & NY

    Hi All! My name is Jeff. I often find myself reading threads here and finally decided "Why not just join the forum?" My father smoked a pipe when I was a kid (he mainly chain smoked Pall Mall cigarettes, though.) I loved the smell of his cherry Borkum Riff that he bought by the large tin...
