I hope he doesn't grow bored with his rustication technique, the one he says has taken a lot of time to perfect (not the "lava" carving), by the time I'm in a position to try one. I see he goes in phases. I appreciate that he keeps trying new things and moves on from them, but there is also something to be said for consistency from established ideas. But then again, smoker's are fickle. I'm sure the estate market will be a good source for years to come.

That was the pipe for me on this round, as far as value to look goes. Under $90, too...a bit heavy, but most of his pipes have some weight.

The two reverse plateaux were very nice, too. I usually don't dig them so much, especially not in that color stain, but both of them worked for me this time. The blue stem on the 'warden looked cool...and only 30 grams, such a lightweight!

#4 & #13...I don't like those long stems. He had a bulldog in the shop the day I came, and it was very affordable. But with the long stem, it just didn't reach out to me.

Ha..we could do a roundup every week; it's fun to look and talk about them, even if you're not in the market.

I really like the pokers and I'm partial to the smooth finished ones but I have son getting braces so my pipe budget is now down to zero.

I also like the shotshell pipes, they look great and would really fit well with my rural Montana home where bird hunting is king.

I want to buy some more pipes, but I will probably have them sent to Montana because I don't want to worry about a bunch of expensive pipes being damaged if I need to move over here.

I agree on not wanting to damage ANY of my stuff while I'm out here. I am going to stick to the two that I have now (well, should have soon) and perhaps have any others shipped to the house. I was really hoping to have my first shipment in today, but no dice.

Good luck on the braces, I hear those can get VERY expensive, but totally worth it in the long run. Very Happy

They came to my local B-more bike show last summer, there again in October (Charm City Mods & Rockers). My girls team (Hagerstown) plays them later this year, I'll definitely take that in. My gals pretty tough, but some of those girls are bruisers!

My pipe arrived last night!!! It is a really nice looking and has a great feel to it. I will probably start breaking it in later today.

I was opening the box and two other guys were watching and both are now going to call and order pipes from Boswell. One is going to try to order two...one for him and another for his son. Pipe smokers are coming out of the woodwork here!!!

I've had a few young soldiers come up to me and asking about the pipe and they all bought cheap pipes in country that ended up being made with a lot of plastic. Needless to say it didn't end well. I'm going to order a bunch of MM pipes go give out to guys who are interested.

I will post a photo soon. I think I still have a few days until I am able to put up photos here.

Be prepared....I ordered an extra couple of ounces on top of the free ounce he sends out with each pipe. He sent a total of five free ounces, so you will have plenty of tobacco to sample.

I haven't been able to check the mail requirements yet..we only receive mail here. I will check as soon as I we hit a big FOB.

I'm a little worried about my son getting them. He tends to act BEFORE he thinks. He just started football again which I'm not worried about, but he has loosened some teeth twice in the past playing baseball (I should say....when horse playing before or after practice).

He'll figure it out pretty quick. Damaging them usually results in some pain, so they learn to avoid that quickly. Near teh end, when the retainer comes into play (and braces off) is the biggest hassle. I think we lost one or two of them in my tenure. Eats into your pipe budget...

No issues with using MPS to swap tobacco. Once I get my shipment in, I'll shoot you a sample of what I've got! PM me your physical address and we'll get this thing going. I'm excited to try some different blends as I have NO idea what I'm going to like. Figured I'd start mild and go from there. Hope all is well up there!

Agreed. JM has one in his shop for most of the summer in that style/shape/color. It's priced at $109 I believe. It looks like a great hanger.

Sorry about that giant pix, I can't seem to be able to remove it now...


I stopped by the shop yesterday and picked up a 6 oz refill of Magnum, my daily smoke.

I chatted with Dan about the pipe on their webpage with the stem extension. He said that was elk antler and was a special commission. I mentioned some soldiers overseas have been ordering his pipes lately. He said they don't really do commisions as they are too busy, but definitely would for a soldier overseas. He said you guys typically don't have easy phone access, so they understand and make an exception for soldiers. He said if you want a particular pipe, email them on your request. He added to keep bugging them via email if you don't get a reply. They are being rude by not replying, but them get overwhelmed by requests. He said a soldier would get priority

Thanks for remembering to ask about that for me. I think I might be pretty good on pipes right now. I do like the one that is on the website though. I will def have to get tot he shop sometime and look around. He's right though, the phone situation can be pretty dire out here sometimes. If I come up with any ideas, I'll certainly send them an email! Thanks.

The great thing about Boswell's is that it is right off 81 (so it seems). I was born and lived in VA for 27 years before moving to jersey. Anyway now that I smoke pipes it is yet another place to add to my "pit stops" list while going through PA. Which also includes Pat Garretts sheepskin store (they have nice shslippers, throws, ect) and Bass pro shop.

I live right up the road, so Boswells is a bi-weekly stop for me. I've seen the Pat Garrett store in 78, but never stopped. I do hit that huge Cabella's on 78. NJ is a frequent travel destination.

I also just picked up a shot Shell (Sportsman) I have never seen anything like it and fell in love. I will post some PICS.
