    A Most Exciting Lunt

    My wife and I attended a wedding at a fishing lodge a few hours south of us this weekend. As the wedding reception wore down, my wife and I decided to take our dog Buddy out for a walk and give me a chance to lunt. I packed and lit my pipe (a nording signature with Rattrays Highland Targe), and...

    Fun Find

    I was digging through my pipe cabinet when I found some old tins of Prince Albert I had found in a Michigan antique shop when I was visiting my parents but I had forgotten about. When I picked them up I felt weight in them that I hadn't noticed before. I opened the one with the tax stamps on it...

    Pre-1865 Pipes For A Film

    Hello, I'm involved in a fairly large film that has pipe smoking in it. The script is originally set in 1863 on the western frontier, but production may pull it back to the 1840's. What type of pipes would a gentlemen be smoking in this time period? Had briars made it that far west yet?

    Europe Trip

    I'm planning a trip through Europe, and didn't know if anyone had any insight into the places I'm going for pipe smoking. Both in terms of local feelings and culture, must go shops, blends to look out for, or places of general interest related to pipes and pipe tobacco. I'll be starting in...

    Kirsten dated 1971

    I did it, finally smoked my signed and dated 1971 Firesider, highly polished. Kirsten. Opted for the first smoke to be with the briar and Dunhill Aperitif. I was holding off for some reason, but finally decided that pipes are meant to be smoked. Makes me happy that after 45 years of the pipe...

    Newest Kirsten to Collection

    Just added this beauty to my Kirsten lineup. An unsmoked, new old stock, full bent Designer, 1971 dated, after talking to Stacy, she thinks her granddad made it in the late '60's. Briar bowl, meerschaum bowl, sock and paperwork is all there. A nice collectors piece.
