    What I GAVE For Xmas

    Twas the giving season. My wife and I can only afford to do so much so this year was tough. Thankfully my two step kids are old enough to understand what broke means and were very happy with what they got. My step-son received a new Nintendo DS 3D, the thing is awesome and made a great...

    Cigar Sister Site?

    I don't know what is wrong with the way I am Googling but I can't seem to find Kevin's cigar forum. I just started smoking cigars after someone gave me a Rocky Patel Sumatra. Now I want all the info I can get on storage, humi care, lighting, etc. Anyone have a link handy? Thank You :D

    To Bristle Or Not To Bristle: A Poll

    I have only used the bristled cleaners to date and am about ready to order more. Just wondering if you all think the bristles are necessary or not. I am a little tired of them poking fingers when I clean my pipes. I couldn't find any info on this topic in the search function so though it might...

    Pot Shaped Bowl Question

    I have a Charatan with a rather big bowl opening, it measures 1"x1 1/4." So far all I have tried in this new to me pipe is some #1 Balkan by McClellen and am wondering if a certain type of baccy smokes better in a pot. I think the VA in the Balkan burned a little hot in the wide open chamber...

    My Favorite Pipe

    It is a Radice Rind O, but I am not going to brag about how pretty it is or how much it cost. I won't say anything about how well it smokes or how it feels in the hand. This pipe is not my favorite for any material reasons whatsoever. You see, this pipe was a gift from a member of this forum. I...

    For The Folks On The Forum

    I have been on this forum for over a year now. I found this site while laying in a hospital bed recovering from surgery on my broken back. Not only did I find the answers to my burning questions, literally burning because I torched my mouth so bad, but I also met a fine group of people! I don't...

    First Balkan

    Went to a B&M on my way to an appt and they had this wonderful smelling jar of #30/Balkan. The shop keeper said it is a McClellen blend and I am assuming it is #1030 Balkan. Anyhow, I was blown away by the taste of this baccy. Being my first Balkan I wasn't sure what to expect but the jar note...

    My New Mr. Brog!

    Here is a shoddy picture of a fantastic little pipe! It is #37 and came with the pipe rest and tool. They have a listing on E-Bay for a random pipe. I couldn't decide so I left it up to fate. I won the auction for a mere 15.50 and ship was free. This pipe is drilled spot on and the stems fit and...

    I Bought The Peterson Pipe And Lighter Set!

    You all may have seen Chispa selling this set for cheap and I snagged it. It almost got away, but it was just meant to be mine. The set also came with a VERY generous amount of swag! There was also a Penzance tin with a couple bowls in it but I forgot about it cuz I am smoking it now! Chispa is...

    Just Tried Carter Hall

    I can't do a review due to inexperience but will say a few words about it. I like it better than PA so far and I happen to really like PA. It seems to my tongue to be mostly like PA but with a smoother taste and creamier feel. Just may be my new go to for first cup of joe and break in smokes :)

    Anglers Dream Question

    Is this an aro? Two out of the three reviews up for offer state that it is an aro but I don't get it. Been smoking it on and off for several months and assumed it was a VERY light English with a Burly base. I only smoke two aromatics that I know of, 1-Q and Nutty Irishman and they have dedicated...

    Bulk Pipe Cleaners: Where To Buy?

    Since I have been increasing the number of estates I'm taking in and then selling I have found that I go through a lot of bristle cleaners. I'm hoping someone can help me with a couple questions. Anyone have a source for pipe cleaners in bulk other than flea-bay? Has anyone tried the ZEN brand...

    Quick Opinions Wanted~Escorti Pipes

    I have seen several of these Escorti pipes on flea-bay that I really like the looks of but I am unfamiliar with the brand. Are they worth the 50-100.00 that I see them go for. Also, I have looked around with the search engine I use but trust the opinion of a lot of you guys, So was hoping to...

    First Fold And Stuff

    Just wanted to share that I have finally tried to just fold and stuff a slice of flake. I have four or five different flakes but just didnt have the courage to try for fear I would waste the bowl. So I am at this moment finishing a bowl Orlik Golden Slice. I wasn't a fan of the VA's until I...
