It's so hard to capture "plume" (or "mold" whatever you like to call it) but just popped this tin of SG Balkan Flake with about 5/6 years on it and it's absolutely glittering! Sampling a rubbed out flake in a Dagner corncob right now...
Starting off my smoking day with a bowl of circa year 2000 Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 2014 Basil Meadows smooth slight bend squashed tomato with an aluminum band and a black pearl acrylic stem in the military mount style. Ice water and bergs is my drink.
Now smoking KBV Festivus VaPer beta test in the first pipe Trever Talbot made when he went to France many years ago. It's a smooth straight Algerian briar Lumberman with a long shank and a black vulcanite saddle stem, unbranded.
Now smoking 1980s Player’s Whiskey Brown Flake Ready Rubbed in a 1980s White Pipe straight lattice apple meerschaum with an acrylic yellow cream colored saddle stem. Have enough for one more bowl. Time to do some walking reps.
