Looks like you have a nice collection going Jay! Does that cob in the bottom center have a reed stem? I have been wanting one of those for my collection.

Nice little cellar ya got there but why the wax paper on many of your bail-top jars? Do they not have good rubber seals, if so, those are cheap at Wally-World !! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Thanks. That cob has a bamboo stem. I picked it up from the Old Dominion Pipe Company.

Good question. They were cheap jars and I never trusted them. I've just never got around to picking up some better ones.

Jay, how do you like the Old Dominion cob compared to MM cobs? Are there any cons to the bamboo stem? Do they have a plug in the bottom, or are they left natural?

I have been planning to place an order with Old Dominion ever since I saw the article on them in P&T Magazine, just so I can have an original style cob in my collection.

Personally I like the look of the Old Dominion cob, but for me I'll be sticking with MM for serious cob smoking. Why? Well, the bamboo stem is perfectly round and so the pipe has a tendency to spin if I let off the least amount of pressure and don't constantly keep a hand on it. That said, I've only got their "Chesapeake" cob... so it's not very big. If I had one of their slightly larger cobs I may enjoy it more.

Oh, and they don't have a plug either... they're all natural.

Very nice indeed Friar. "Nice and neat", as a long time friend of mine would say!

Cool 



Cheers,

RR
