    Need help identifying my grandfather's pipe

    From the pouches still in his old pipe cabinet, amphora was his blend of choice. Along with tobacconist blends from whatever local pipe shop he went to

    Selling your McClelland's?

    Yeah they weren't sealed. I only bought one tin of a blend to smoke, this was before I knew people bought tins for the purpose of cellaring.

    When Is Your Last Smoke of the Day

    For me, it is usually an hour or two before bed. I only really smoke in the evening, and not even every day.

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    Had some Cobblestone Chess Queen in my wdc Wellington last night while fishing. I don't think I have ever seen tobacco that wet right out of the tin. A half hour of drying (admittedly in humid weather) and it was still very wet

    Selling your McClelland's?

    I didn't know that at the time I got them as a just of smoking age college student 10 years ago. One of the tins did get a leaky lid so I jarred them

    The Vegan Burger

    Most people I talk to don't have that issue with the burnt plastic taste. But through genetics/body chemistry/ other reasons, that's the only thing I taste in the beyond/impossible hamburger. To each their own

    The Vegan Burger

    I don't really care for any of the vegan meat substitutes. Impossible burger and beyond burger both taste like burnt plastic to me. As much of a carnivore as I am, I do find a grilled portobello mushroom does work quite nicely in place of a hamburger patty. Doesnt replicate the taste of...

    Insects and room note.

    In my experience, nothing I smoke does anything with insects, I always end up swatting away clouds of mosquitoes if I don't cover myself in deet

    Recently made RDPipes

    I love them, I have been wanting to add a rhodesian or 2 to my collection as of late. Do you make tapered stems as well?

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    Probably going to give a couple days break to give my palate a break. Last night was sutliff Berkshire in a sparkless pipe while fishing/ swatting away the mosquitoes since I forgot the bug repellent

    Mortise drilled all the way to the bowl

    I can make the stem no problem, the only question is should I drill the bore out to a wider diameter at the tenon, like the Peterson tapered bore.

    My Observations on the Subject of the P'Lip

    I do have a WDC Wellington (one of my late grandfather's pipes), pretty much an oversized system pipe with a p lip. My observations with it in regards to your statements are as follows: 1. I don't just close my lips around the button on any of my pipes. I always have the button behind my teeth...
