Before Christmas I purchased a Rex Bulldog from Plateauguy. As many of you know I have been sick with some type of bronchitus with turned into a sinus infection so haven't been smoking much. He is a great guy to deal with, and while we had some address frustration due to USMS the deal went off without a hitch. The pipe arrived in good shape and is a project for me to restore this winter. It's on the larger side and resembles a Pete 80s shape. Rob even threw in a sample of Killingtons to try. Smoked the pipe for the first time last night and it was a great smoke. The plan is for a dark stain and a good polish with Carnuba wax and this will make part of my regular rotation.
