    Left handed pipe smokers

    I am also left handed, though I do most things right handed beside writing and shooting. I haven't ran into this problem with pipes, because I tend to prefer traditional shapes, but I could absolutely see it being an issue with certain pipes! I do have a paneled Boswell that was clearly designed...

    Greetings, Salutations, Hello, Et cetera…

    Welcome! As others have mentioned, cobs are a great choice for well-smoking but inexpensive pipes, and several different Missouri Meerschaum cobs are available on Amazon if you can't find them locally. You've got a good group of supportive and friendly folks here!

    Hello Dear Fellows

    Welcome Doc! You'll find a good group here. Generally difficult to offend, unless you have the wrong opinion about a favorite blend! ;) Glad to have you here!

    Binge-worthy TV shows?

    We recently re-watched the Sherlock series (from BBC, I believe), and I'm just finishing The North Water again, which is a piece I quite enjoy. Not sure what will be next on the list. I'm trying to focus more of my time on reading lately, if my eyes aren't too tired after work.

    Different Wallet styles.

    I've got quite a few of their products, and while they certainly are not inexpensive, their quality has been impressive! I'll have to try to get a picture over the weekend. The wallet has aged nicely and is the perfect size for me. I also have one of their Field Note notebook covers, a couple...

    Different Wallet styles.

    I've carried a Port wallet from Craft and Lore for about 5 years now. It's a small wallet that I carry in my front pocket. I've gotten away from a bifold or larger wallet and don't know that I could ever go back.

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    Ironically, I’m also re-reading the Hobbit right now, as I had found a beautiful copy in a local book store, and received the same edition of The Lord Of The Rings as a Christmas gift. I found that they also offered The Silmarillion in the same style, so I grabbed that as well. I believe I...

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    Recently finished bowl of CS Old Toby in my SMS meer. Waiting on rain and dreading running errands is the plan for the day.

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    Started the day with coffee and bacon. Now enjoying a cup of black tea in the yard with a bowl of CS Cowboy Coffee in my Peterson copper banded Christmas pipe.

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    Been away for a minute. Just finished a bowl of old Toby in my new Briarworks billiard. Really nice little pipe. Pot roast is in the oven and life ain’t too bad.

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    I believe Walker Briarworks makes the "forever stems" still for MM pipes. You can order different stem shapes, lengths, colors, etc. They fit most any MM as long as you get the correct stem (ie filtered vs unfiltered shank). Actually, it looks like the site is now Vermont Freehand. Not sure if...

    Peterson Spigot Pipes

    I've got about half a dozen Peterson's because I've always been impressed with how they smoke. I think the closest I have to 2 of the same would be my SMS meers, which are still different. Unless we're counting cobs. Now, I did buy an estate Peterson prince shape a couple years ago that I dated...

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    It's called Riverboat Queen now. They had licensing issues and had to drop the LOTR themed names. They chose new names that are similar to help with recognition. I recently purchased a half pound of Old Toby (now Tombigbee) which I've quite enjoyed as far as aromatics go. I purchased similar...

    New Years Pipes you want? 2024

    I was just able to pick one of my wishlist pipes up a couple days ago. Haven't even smoked it yet. Late last year I picked up my first meer, the SMS that I've posted a couple pictures of, and it's turned out to be one of my favorite pipes. While I was there, I almost purchased another SMS...

    I hate Ice Storms…

    My gal and I are heading up to Washington next week. We're considering relocating to the area. Wild seeing that. Being in southern California, that weather is unheard of. Luckily the truck has 4 wheel drive and we'll be planning to dress warm. I think the weather is supposed to be warming up.
