    I like those quite a bit. I wonder, though, how customized they can be. Does the matter of creativity lie in the hands of the producer only or does the laser technique open up design options (such as the aforementioned Celtic knot) to the consumer end. I'd love to have one of these pipes carved...

    Mike Brissett

    This is sad news indeed. Mike made one of my most treasured pipes, and he will be dearly missed by many.

    Classical Archery?

    Anybody shooting their recurves now? I've got a 1974 AMF Redwing Hunter that I'm having fun with.

    Are they ruined?

    I don't really know where I've been, but I reckon it hasn't been here. :shock: Long time no see, everybody. Anyhow, here is an update on my pipes. I got the pipes back from George a while ago. I told myself as soon as I smoked them I'd come back and update. Then I never smoked them. Yesterday...

    What can I take on an airplane these days?

    I'm back, friends, and have nothing new to add to the conversation simply because I forgot my pipes! Initially, I had a pipe, tin of baccy, and a lighter packed nicely in the checked luggage. After reading through tons of rules I felt confident that I could carry the stuff on, so I removed my...

    What can I take on an airplane these days?

    TJ, I've always been suspicious of the older crowd. However, as most of them have acquired a nice collection of pipes, etc. I find myself trying to be kind to them in order to work my way into their wills. I've even gone as far as feeding cookies to more corpulent ones in order to hurry...

    What can I take on an airplane these days?

    Good stuff, guys. I appreciate it. And thank you, too, TJ. I know I can always count on your support. Can I count on your bail money, too? 8) You know, a pipe packed next to a tin of tobacco and a bundle of wiry pipe cleaners sure would look suspect on an x-ray machine. showme

    What can I take on an airplane these days?

    It's been a couple of years since I've flown with pipe and gear, but I remember I couldn't carry a lighter last time. Have there been any changes that might affect me carrying on a couple of pipes and a couple tins of (open) tobacco? I'm going to leave tampers behind. Or, is it better to pack...

    I'm a father...or...will be...not sure which...

    Congrats on the news, Pipebrew! (The baby news, that is.) I started smoking a pipe shortly after my first one was born. My wife thought I had lost my mind since I had never smoked before, but I did it for me and she has been respectful of that. I only smoke outside or when otherwise away from...

    Are they ruined?

    Anti-freeze is a better tobacco casing than pipe treatment. Let me send you a batch of freshly cased stuff. It smokes real cool, I promise.

    The pipes are in the hands of George at PSPR&R now. I will update upon their return. Thanks for your interest. showme

    A little Wine help

    Have you ever tried muscadine wine, PB? It's pretty good and maybe a little different than anything else. Need some cheese, eggman?

    Are they ruined?

    I baked the pipes today and after they cooled I unwrapped them. The oom paul wrapping was fine. No discoloration at all. The Dunhill had the slightest hint of discoloration on one edge of the top of the bowl and along one side of the stem. I asked my wife what the color was (I'm colorblind) and...

    Are they ruined?

    I started to bake my pipes last night and warned SWMBO that there might be a tobacco smell downstairs for a while. She said she didn't mind that too much but wondered if the smell might linger in the oven and, say, impart a delicate hint of stoved Virginia to our next cassarole. Does anyone know...

    Are they ruined?

    LL, a sincere thank you for your advice. I will do just what you suggest. I just checked the oven and its lowest setting is 170. Any chance that the stems absorbed anything, or would a regular old good cleaning inside and out take care of them? Again, thank you. Gary
