    Tim, Where did you live and what did you do here? I taught middle school history here for about 30 years and live in Aiken Estates.

    Tim, I'm a SC resident, too, and welcome you to the group. I live in Aiken, so it's good to see a fellow Sandlapper here.

    I bought a Radice #29 small Lovat a month or two ago.

    I like it a lot, since I can clench it despite a wobbly partial. It's a Silk cut pipe with a light brown/tan stain and a short saddle bit. I like lovats and Canadians, so it fits in well.

    Thanks. I'll see if I can get one of those, since I have a couple of their blankets bought years ago.

    My usual Proper English in an MM Legend.It's always a good way to start my day. Some tobacco questions for you guys. I 'm a big fan of English blends, but lately I've been trying out an aromatic I got from Boswell's with a pipe purchase as a free sample - an ounce of Christmas Cookie. It's...

    Balisong, A question for you, sir. Where did you get the replacement stem for that MM pipe? I have two MM Legends, and,even through it can't clench them, I have bitten through the stems on several of their cobs in the past. Any info you could give me would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Here from Genoa, Italy

    I have passed through Rome once on a flight to Europe, but I've never really spent any time in Italy. I do enjoy Italian pipes and have 22 that I smoke very frequently. 15 are Savinellis, with 2 Mastro Geppetos, an Ascorti, one Caminetto, two Radices, and a Brebbia for good measure. I do my...

    Peterson Spigot Pipes

    I have three Petersons, and two are p-lips. Frankly, I don't smoke them as often as I could, since I don't like p-lips at all. The one fishtail I have, a 53, is much more to my liking. I have more than 15 Savinellis, and they are my "go-to" smokers for the most part. I have to use a partial on...

    Slightly off the thread theme, but I just took delivery of a Radice 29 Lovat from Boswell's collection, and it's a beauty. The shape is one of my favorites, and the pipe is light, amazingly carved/shaped with ring grain to beat the band, and flawless to my eye. I practically stole it at a...

    colonoscopy anyone?

    I'm 78 and have had three of them over the last 20 years or so. The first session discovered a dew polyps, which the doctor removed, and the last two have been polyp free. So, I think I'll be good to go for the next five years, if I live that long. Meanwhile, i'll continue to eat what I want...

    Proper English in a MM Hardwood (maple?) straight pipe. I have a tendency to smoke "wet," so cobs seem to soak up a lot of moisture and fall apart at the stem on me. So, I thought I would try one of their Maple pipes, and it seems to be holding up to multiple bowls a day without any problems...

    That cat looks a lot like Duncan. The only major difference is the narrow white surrounding the eyes.
