    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...

    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...

    Two GBD pipes for sale

    This will be my second to last posting of pipes for sale as I reorganize my collection. Two GBD pipes from the 70's made in London. Although I am the original owner I don't have box or socks for either - will use bubble wrap in a cardboard box to ship. Don't know why the pics came out so dark...

    Pipes for Sale: Odds n' Ends

    Nine pipes pictured here for $20 including shopping to lower 48. These are all low value pipes, but maybe they'll have some value to somebody as beaters or curiosities. Hey, they interested me enough at one time that I bought them. Lightly used, the Panama Jack has a very soft plastic bit so...

    Tobaccos to trade or sell: Round Three

    Since I've received several PMs asking about an updated list, here it is. 1 ounce samples, 5 for $10 including shipping to the lower 48. (Do we even have any members in Hawaii or Alaska that I'm excluding?). Cash or PayPal preferred. Anyway, drum roll . . .

    Buying pipes from out of country suppliers

    A quick search on the BoB archives shows some glowing endorsements for AlPascia in Italy. I'm looking at a Radice on that site. But I haven't had the best luck buying out of country. A non-pipe related purchase from Italy got a huge $180 fine. And after a Mr. Brog purchase from Poland I...

    Pipe sighting in Netflix "Anne with an E"

    Every evening RH Thomson's character Matthew Cuthbert smokes a pipe by the fireplace. Must not have any Latakia as the other two actresses in the same room don't seem bothered. Looks like a quarter bent Ashton Brindle to me, but maybe somebody with freeze frame capability or a sharper eye knows...

    BoB Annual "outta yer Gourd" Day?

    I thought it might be interesting to have an annual Get Out Your Gourd Day, where if we can agree on a date, all members who have a gourd (and probably rarely use them) will post about what they've fired up in the beasties. If the idea takes, we could have an annual Meer Day, Cob Day, Morta Day...

    Pipes for Sale (round two)

    What the heck - nothing I want to see on Netflix, so here's two more. Two English pipes from the 70's. Same as before: $20 each including shipping to lower 48. Cash or check. Hardcastle's Royal Bruyere. London Made. 5" long, 3/4" bore (20cm) Some light tooth chatter. Comoy Golden Matt 594...

    Pipes to sell

    I've set aside ten pipes I'd like to sell and here are the first two. This go around are two Dublins: a Pete and an Armellini. I went through a phase of buying a lot of Dublins because I like the look, but neither of these fit my hand well, especially the Armellini which is an ovoid Dublin. No...

    BriarPipeNYC

    Early Christmas from BriarPipeNYC. Along with a generous portion of his "Pleasant Moments" blend came an unexpected gift of a small mini pipe. My only previous experience with a mini pipe was a cheap cob that had a chamber bore so small I couldn't even get my pinkie in when loading the pipe...

    Thoughts while piping . . .

    Enjoying a pipe allows me to clear the mind and relax, what some might call Zen centering. I never use a pipe to force myself to relax; if I'm upset at something I'll usually do something mindless but productive like mowing the lawn or walking the dog. I would't want to abuse a pipe and fume...

    The sweet smell of briar

    Okay, here's a weird one (and no, I haven't even been drinking tonight) . . . One of the main things I enjoy about a pipe are all the varieties of aromas they offer. Just had two wonderful bowls sitting on the back deck looking at the stars and was reminded of an odd habit I have: I'll put the...

    Weird time posts on forum

    What's with the rotating time marks on posts? If I post something at 10 am my time (EST) a few hours later I see it is listed as 8am. I could understand if the admin's time zone was on the west coast that it would work its way two or three hours later, but it is going the wrong direction - to a...

    Tobaccos to Trade

    This group is for trades only. I have 1-ounce baggies of some premium and discontinued tobaccos - just enough to say you tried something that you've been curious about. As for trade items I'm mostly interested in offerings from some of the small purveyors who do their own blending: Uhle's...

    Tobaccos to Trade or Sell: Round Two

    Nothing in quantity here, 1-ounce size only - just enough to take it for a test drive and see how you like it. Same deal: trade one for one, or five 1-ounce baggies for ten bucks including shipping to lower 48. Some items from Round One still available - see update in the Tobacco Jar...

    Trade or Sell Update

    I haven't been able to respond to my post in the Trading Section for four days now, so I'll post the updated list here. Mostly picked over by now. I wonder if I'll be able to post the second list by Saturday, if not I guess I'll put it here. :confused:
