Enjoyed a tasty lunch,and am smoking Wilke No. 515 in a smooth dark brown medium bend 2021 Peterson POTY 4AB No. 45/500 military mount with a silver cap and a vulcanite black tapered AB stem. This was the blend Basil Rathbone smoked. Getting ready to be a guest of the Virtual Pipe Club zoom. https://us06web.zoom.us/j/775477240
C&D Big'n'Burley packed for later, in a straight blast saddle stem billiard Luciano from 2008. SP bought this briar to a pipe show and saved me shipping. When I need a serious burley, this is one of my favorites.
Smoking some GH&Co Kendal #7 in an Ascorti I refinished that I hated at first but it's growing on me. Kendal #7 is an interesting blend. It's some what bland for a Kendal shag but I have a feeling it will age better than most due to the high virginia content and no casing so I am going to put it away for a number of years and see how it does.
