    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    I was about to compliment you on the nice cob but I think the Galleon takes top honors. Love the undulating rim. Just exactly how many pipes are in your collection? They all seem top notch!

    Two Rhodos for sale

    Since there have been no takers yet, for anybody who has been on the fence about picking up both pipes I'll include free samples of what in my opinion are BoB's Best DIY recipes from some of our members who are home blenders. This will give you a chance to see what the fuss is all about...

    You're probably too young to remember the old commercial, but . . . "Hey Mikey!! Do you like it??" :D

    The Elusive Character of Balkan Sobranie

    In another thread on Esotorica and casings RSteve pulls up some good information which got me to thinking about Balkan Sobranie. First the quote, then my mental connection with Balkan Sobranie: Like many enthusiasts I have tried every tobacco that anybody has ever said reminded them of Balkan...

    Esoterica Tobacco

    Hmmm, just noticed this thread because the title on Esoterica didn't interest me (never had one of their blends that was all that orgasmic), but the discussion on casing certainly does. As an avid home blender I have limited, but not completely uninformed experiences with unprocessed leaf, and...

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    Now I only use this pipe for Amphora Burley Blend and use the Vauen 9mm filter. When I was still trying out different baccies I used the 9mm to 3mm adapter (available for about a buck) for mild Virginias like GLP Virginia Cream or lighter English/Balkan blends, and used the filter with heavy...

    Morning: GLP Virginia Cream in a tall London-made John Redman. Afternoon: Amphora Burley Blend in its dedicated pipe, a paneled Design Berlin. Evening: will see what strikes my fancy!

    Start of my new rotation system pairing my favorite blends with their dedicated pipes (I'll start a separate discussion on this idea). Here are the pipes du jour: Morning: Country Squire Cowboy Coffee in its dedicated Savinelli Roma Lucite Afternoon: C&D Black Frigate in a Peterson...

    Churchwarden for Sale

    Mr. Brog Regata Churchwarden $15 including shipping (within U.S.) This was made by Bracownia Tajek, Poland and cost only $50 bucks when new, so probably not for the connoisseurs among you. Still, I've only used it three times, so it might have value to somebody curious about churchwardens...

    Lion Meer for sale

    Lion Meerschaum $30 including shipping to lower 48. To get you started I also include samples of two of my blends: Lion's Pride and Lion's Roar! (based off of RSteve's full English recipe). Trying to thin out pipes that I rarely use. I don't think I touched this at all last year. Chamber has a...

    Two Rhodos for sale

    Two fanciful Rhodesian style pipes $25 each, or both for $40 including shipping to lower 48. PayPal preferred, or cash or check. Pipe stands and staging props not included. The Molina was only smoked four times, just not comfortable in my hand, maybe work better for somebody else. The Nording...

    Two Books: Ten Bucks

    Two good pipe books here for $10 including shipping to lower 48. I've read them twice and absorbed about as much as I'm going to. One is a hard cover with tons of quality photos (though it's bittersweet to see photos of amazing pipe shops in London and Paris that are now long gone). The other...

    Sillem's London Blend in a Design Berlin Royal Star. It's been nearly two years since I last visited this blend. Checking my notes I see that some things remain the same, like I get more flavor drawing in the mouth than through the retrohale (usually not the case with me), and the pronounced...

    An Analysis of Pipe Filters

    As I reconfigure my pipe collection I'm looking for more high quality 9mm pipes like my Design Berlin Siegfried because it offers three ways to enjoy my blends: If I want a wide open draw (for flakes) I just leave it out, if I want a normal draw I use the non-filter adapter, on blends with a...

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    A mix of Country Squire Cowboy Coffee and Rivendell in a Design Berlin Siegfried. I like straight Cowboy Coffee in the morning and I like Rivendell for an after dinner treat, so I thought why not try them together? In the afternoon I sometimes want a semi-aromatic with just a touch of aromatic...

    Rating your pipes

    Was deciding whether or not to sell a Savinelli Roma Lucite. It failed its test Wednesday, and before that it has always been lackluster. Then this morning it finally found a blend it likes: Country Squire Cowboy Coffee. This pipe has no serious faults, just nothing really shined in it these...

    Tobaccos to trade or sell: Round Three

    This offer is now closed. Most of the items have now been picked over. Any future tobacco offerings I'll probably just charge postage and maybe a flat packing fee of $5 because I worry about "selling" tobacco and shipping over state lines. I think gifting or exchanges between individuals is...
