On the deck enjoying a freshly popped jar of 2019 Gawith Hoggarth Dark Plug in a Charatan’s Make Authentic. Decaf coffee and good tunes for accompaniment. Plugs always age so well, and quickly too. Already a decent amount of crystals on the plug! It’s nowhere near as good as the Dark Plug from 2004 I finished up not long ago, but this has some spicy notes in the forefront that I am enjoying, not found in the older vintage. Oh….and the aroma is intoxicating!

From pocket pipe ...

... to reading pipe, Butz-Choquin had a pipe for just about every occasion -
the Origine was originally designed in 1857 and was the original pipe released to the world by Gustave Butz and Jean Choquin

These two bought in 1978 (same time as the Peterson & Glass catalogue ^)

As can be seen the albatross wing bone extension was unsurprisingly somewhat longer than the more recent goose bone but that's what was used from the mid 19th into the 20th century where it was sometimes included in four-pipe sets to add versality or even with cased single pipes and I've even seen one included with a cased Calabash.

How the extension colours with use

Just spent a glorious two hours in the yard, a sunny, no humidity, breezy, afternoon, as I smoked 2016 Brebbia Latakia (Syrian) Flake No. 9 in a GBD Prehistoric 508 bent Billiard with a Perspex stem. A tall tumbler filled with Peach/Mango Green Tea, Honey Jack and a fistful of bergs, slaked my thirst.

Not far from finishing this bowl of year 2018 Sutliff Dunhill Elizabethan Match in a 1982 smooth straight Dunhill Root Briar 31051 Dublin with a black vulcanite tapered stem. Got a new box of estate pipes, and am about to open the box to see what's inside.
