To console myself, now I can no longer order great swathes of tobacco. I purchased two of the MM 150th anniversary cobs from them as I’ve always wanted a bulldog cob. I’ll let you know how I get on once they arrive in the (hopefully) near future.

Cheers all

Well...lovely though the dog is...I’m liking the Emerald!

I think it’s unobtanium now though. Too bad.

I ordered my Franklin cob today over the phone. MM uses PayPal for their CC references and there was a problem with the server on line. Finally got one ordered!

Thanks for the link Blackhorse, I should’ve been a good netizen and included it in my original post and yes the Emerald looks stunning too.

As for smuggling, hopefully we won’t need to go there for a while, the cellar is looking well stocked currently. Smile

If the Franklin smokes half as well as the Charlestown Cobbler, I’ll be a happy man.

Cheers all

I've had my Franklin for a couple of days now, and it smokes fine!

As far as the Emerald, the stem can be aquired from Vermont freehand. Otherwise it's a country gentleman.

The Emerald also seems a lot like the C&D Cobbler no?

It was available yesterday when I ordered a Franklin.... <checks web site> and currently lists as available (as does the Franklin). I did not check to see if both stem-types were available.

Yup. Back in stock! Unfortunately, following two hobby purchases yesterday my fun fund is dry. I wait til the first of the month. If they’re restocking a St Patrick’s Pipe now it’ll be there at some point for me later as well.

Got to say, the Franklin smokes every bit as good as the Cobbler. The finish isn’t quite as refined with a few rough edges to the stems that needed sanding down but other than that, I’m extremely happy with my purchases.

May look into modding the second Franklin into a half bent pipe if I begin to feel inspired.

Cheers
