    Has Anyone Used Pipe Tobacco..........

    Steve, I frequently smoke pipe tobacco in RYO tubes. It gets too bloody cold here in the winter for a pipe. You should have no problems with most pipe tobacco in a cigarette injector. I have a lever manual one and an electric one and both work well with most pipe tobacco. The big issue will be...

    First Morta

    Just got a beautiful Morta brandy in the mail from our very own Ron Powell. Absolutely stunning piece. Incredible sandblast on it. Can't wait to break it in. Jim

    Breaking News: my daughter has a cough and sore throat.

    Not sure how it would help other than increase your exposure to the pollen. Similar to getting the allergy shots. Eventually you'll build up a tolerance to it. Hopefully it was just allergies and you guys will be fine. On a related note Katie has been tested twice for C-19 and it's come back...

    How many "Look Only" pipes do you own?

    I only have one pipe that I've never smoked. It's a clay pipe from Princeton graduation from the 1890's. Tradition dictated that these pipes were smoked only once during commencement and then smashed over the butt end of a burried cannon barrel. This one survived unsmoked and will remain that...

Well so is my oven and I'm not about to crank it up and sit in it either. Summers here are brutal enough for me when it hits the...

    Where did you start...and where did it lead?

    First flake was LTF. Which lead to trying pretty much any flake I can get my hands on. Loved Blackwoods and have a bit put away. Escudo, C&D Safe Harbor flake and Star of the East. I'd have to say that right now for me it's Gawith Flakes and ropes. Love me some Cherry Cream Flake. Jim

    In Search of the Perfect English

    I thoroughly enjoyed Arango Balkan Supreme. C&D Safe Harbor flake is pretty good as well. A favorite though was Aston Artisans Blend. Haven't tried the current iteration of it though so I can't say how well it did after the loss of the Syrian. Smoke a few Scottish and Balkans that I can't think...
