    Peterson Smokes Bad No Matter What. How To Fix It?

    Sorry for a silly question but I feel like I have little options other than to turn to the collective wisdom of the forum. For some years already, I have an estate Peterson Limerick 80s Bent Bulldog (probably, from the 1970s) which just smokes bad. Nothing wrong with the pipe itself, no ghosts...

    Which Wood in Kiko Meerschaum-Lined Pipes?

I used to like Latakia before, but as I'm finding out now...

    Body Chemistry Change. Has Anyone Else Experienced That?

    Hello gentlemen, I've been a pipe smoker for the last eight years. The last three of four months I notice a strangest change: whatever I smoke gives me a noticeable amount of tongue bite. It's not about puffing cadence or choice of blends (those have been the same for all previous years of...

    Mold Odor in a New Pipe, How to Get Rid Of?

    Gentlemen, I'm asking for your advice on getting rid of a strong mold odor from the shank of a new Peterson Aran 268 pipe bought recently from tobaccopipes (now I understand why it was discounted from $125 to $100). Searching massively the forum topics I found suggestions of salt & alcohol...
