    Matters of the Heart

    Hey folks, just a quick note to let you all know I won't be hanging around much for a while. I suspect my smoking pipe may be coming to an end, this time for good. I had a heart cath yesterday, and my arteries were clear (good news). But the bad news is my heart valve is wearing out, I was born...

    Is Peterson Making pipes out of Brylon?

    Is this true? I just saw a facebook ad from P&C that shows a Peterson 2018 pipe of the year and the ad says the bowl material is "brylon"... is that something that is new to them or have they been doing that? I remember brylon as being briar dust formed to make bowls in cheaper pipes. Am I...

    Osage Orange pipe from Ozark Wizard

    The mail man just brought me this nice osage orange pipe that I ordered from Ozark Wizard. He included a nice bit of his Grandpa's Sweater blend; which I love! Also received a tin of Reiner's Gold Blend 71 from Cupojoes. <img src="" alt="Osage...

    Heavy Metal PAD

    Picked up a couple of metal pipes. The first is an Aristocob. It was in pretty nice condition, but I didn't like the plastic stem, so I sent it off to Walker's to get a vulcanite stem made and while it was there he polished the bowl up a bit for me. I still have the original stem as well, but I...

    Congratulations! You all have gotten me to bite. I have been following these threads and couldn't stand it any longer. This week I purchased and received two Wing Sung 618s. One clear and silver, one red. I also bought some Noodler's Gruene Cactus, and Noodler's Nikita (Khrushchev) Red, which...

    Which will it be?

    Okay, a lot of you have hundreds maybe even thousands of dollars of tobaccos in your cellars. Say you can only have one blend from here on out, okay, make it two. Which do you reach for the most? What will your two blends be? This hobby can send you on a mad hunt for that perfect elusive blend...

    Placed a Few Orders for Fall

    Ordered a couple of ounces each of Butternut Burley and Scotty's Salmon River. Four ounces each of Sleepy Hollow and Rookwood from Straus Tobacconist, along with a Rider's Revenge cigar (though I seldom, if ever, smoke a cigar)... I thought I would make an exception. AND, my first new pipe in...

    An Old Friend Returns (sort of)

    I had a pipe that was pretty special to me. It was a 1982 Comoy's Christmas Pipe that I bought the year my wife and I got married. A few years ago while going through a particularly hard time, I sold it. I instantly regretted selling that pipe because of the memories attached, but sometimes you...

    Dagner Built Custom Tomato

    As some of you know from another thread, I said I would order the above pipe and give my opinions on it. I ordered it on Tuesday and received it today. It was packaged very nicely. Inside the box was an invoice with a handwritten note from Jayson Dagner thanking me for my business. Also on the...

    Youtube Pipe Community

    It's been lightly discussed on BoB before, but does anyone watch pipe smoking videos on YouTube? I watch three primarily. Matches860 - he's got an easy way about him and I enjoy listening to him tell stories and talk. He seems like he'd be a fun guy to spend some time talking with and having a...

    Did Some Wheelin' and Dealin' Today...

    And ended up with a new SCCY 9mm and a couple boxes of ammo. Traded a few antiques for it that I got a while back for practically nothing but time and effort to restore, so not bad. The 9mm looks like this one...

    Bought a new gun today.

    Went to Adventure Outdoors just to "look" at some concealed carry revolvers. Ended up putting a Ruger LCRx 38 + P with 3" barrel on lay-away. I'll go one day next week if I get time to pick it up. Also ordered a White Hat Co holster for it... Pics when I get everything.
