    Brick and Mortar Compendium

    Do we have an extensive list of b&m shops somewhere? My search doesn’t reveal too many. I am always looking for a stop to make on a road trip to break up the ride. Iwan Ries in Chicago was my home store for a while and it is legendary. I saw that Boswells has two locations. Is one better...

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    Smoking some Drew estate “Meat Pie” in a new-to-me Peterson 999. Just finished a cob-full of Storm Front. It’s been a good day off

    California laws

    It appears that “loose leaf tobacco” is excepted. I couldn’t find the exact wording. The “goal” of the laws is to keep young people from starting to use tobacco/nicotine vapes. I don’t hate that. That being said, the offer for a bandit run to anyone that can’t get what they want will always stand!

    California laws

    Doing more reading: California is the 5th state to do so after Rhode Island, NY, NJ and Mass. Do we need to make a Smokey and the Bandit run with a truck full of Aromatics to the Northeast?

    California laws

    The Supreme Court just upheld the flavored tobacco ban (targeting vapes but looping menthol cigarettes in as well). Does this effect pipe tobacco? If so, can you still buy from out of state? I’m 3,000 miles away, but I am curious!

    Pipe Repair (and Perhaps Identification, too?)

    Those screw in shanks are brutal. I picked up a shoe-box lot that had a bunch like this. I reamed out what I could and got my polish on for the stems that were worth it. Out of the lot of 20, I got 2 good smokers. I am not a pipe snob by any means, but some of these old drug store brand pipes...

    Couldn’t find a thread yet so here we go Great accurate pics in the post and more than honest descriptions: a smudge described as a scratch. Communicative on shipment and tracking number accurate. Would buy from again anytime.

    Pipe For Sale SOLD Vuillard and Fe.Ro

    Arrived safe and sound. I will post to the bbb as well for the outstanding communication. Could be happier. The pics don’t do the grain on both pipes justice. And I love the Cumberland stem. I sanitized with some belle meade whiskey and I will sanitize my throat multiple times tonight as well as...

    How high is too high?

    There was a thread a long time ago in pipe techniques that had a sort of clay made from cigar ash (the corn cob primer, if I remember correctly) that can be used to raise the bottom a bit to prevent burnouts. Very helpful
