A third of the way through the last of this sample of year 1948 Edgeworth Ready Rubbed in a medium bend dark brown 2017 Don Warren 17 smooth straight grain rough top Dublin with a multi-brown cumberland stem and ferrule in the military mount style. It's been great while it lasted! I'll end the day with this smoke.

Going to have some 1926 Velvet tobacco (courtesy of @ashdigger ) in a period correct thirteen inch Kaufmann Brothers & Bondy MARCO-POLO Tavern Pipe with a Gutta-percha Stem. The KB&B Clover logo was discontinued in 1930—the Kaywoodie name was often added after 1919—this pipe is probably from before 1919 since there’s no mention of Kaywoodie. As I’ve mentioned in other posts, KB&B also owned the Colossus Pipe Factory pipes that I’m quite fond of and collect.

Lots of Clay King leftovers but I also smell Cyprus Latakia so into the clay it goes. I'm not putting so much as a crumb of Latakia in my briar pipes, I'm afraid the strong aroma will never leave the wood.
Enjoy your sunday, folks!

Thanks, man. It’s a corny show. My wife hates it, but I thinks it’s funny.
You don't throw rubber chickens at her, do you? 😁

This is going to be a long one.

I took the tobacco-coffee burrito out of the press, I couldn't take the pressure anymore.
It's been in there since last thursday, under about 250kg/550lb of dead weight. Every heavy thing I have around was placed on there.

All unpacked. This is like briar grain, I could look at it for hours.

Cut into equal parts. The pressure got distributed very nicely.

Cut into flakes. They already started to rub themselves up, they should be in the press for longer.
At least a full week.

Everything got rubbed up nicely during roasting. I jarred it up with roasted coffee beans on the top and bottom of the jar. It's gonna sit there for a while. Of course I set some of it aside to be sampled, which I'm doing as I write this. My cob has the honor. Pretty good stuff, this stuff. Very pleasant and smooth. Nice flavors too but it can always be better.

I thought I'd also roast the mead soaked Virginia flakes for @halfdan 's Clay King blend while I'm at it.
I'll sauce it again soon to get more lemon and honey flavor into it. This spent one week under 170kg/375lb but the flakes held together much better. Lesson learned.
