    What's up with Warped?

    I'm under the impression that smokingpipes.com are the exclusive dealers of Warped pipe tobaccos. That said, I've been waiting for MONTHS for them to get an inventory of Cloud Hopper and Until The End available. Luckily I had previously stocked up on The Red Hunt and Kings Stride (both of...

    Skinny Chimney Tobacco?

    I recently got a beautiful chimney pipe with a .70inch chamber stack and the tiniest diameter of any pipe I've ever had; .65 (!) Any of you experienced brothers out there have any recommendations for a slow smoking, satisfying tobacco that could possibly burn in such a squeezebox?

    Dan Tobacco

    Anybody know of an online shop that has a good stock of Dan Tobacco?  My usual (smokingpipes.com) has been pretty dry for  a long time, at least for my favorites and pipesand cigars is just about empty altogether. (However, I should mention 2 tobaccos available at Pipesand Cigars that are...

    GLPease Meridian

    I just got some new tins of tobacco in the mail, one of which was a tin of GLP Meridian from 10/29/19. I had another unopened tin of this in my cellar from 01/14/19, and so I decided to put them both in a glass BALL jar. I have never smoked this blend before, and have been looking forward...

    P-Lip Surprise

    I've always avoided Peterson pipes with this feature because I couldn't envision I'd enjoy the smoke delivery of such a stem. Well, I really wanted one of their specialty tankard pipes, just one of those itches that just came out of nowhere and wouldn't go away. So, I bit the bullet and bought...

    WTT For SUN BEAR - SOLD -

    For one new, unopened 2 oz tin of Cornell & Diehl SUN BEAR I'd give someone either 3 new, unopened 50gr tins of Samuel & Gawaith FULL VIRGINIA FLAKE purchased sometime in 2016 OR 2  new, unopened 3.5 oz tins of MacBaren HH VINTAGE SYRIAN (which is out of production) With either choice I'd...

    McClelland & Other Out of Production Brands for TRADE

    Well, when I was going nuts, stockpiling all my favorite McClelland tobaccos before the final curtain dropped it looked like I was a little late on a few.  So I am giving a stab in the dark and wondering if anybody out there would have any of these tins that they'd like to trade for anything I'm...

    New Dagner Cobs Nix Forever Stems

    I've got at least a half dozen, probably more Dagner Custom Cobs with Forever Stems mounted on them.  The Dagner cobs have a big chamber, and adding a Forever Stem  onto one is just icing on the cake.  It makes for a really nice, comfortable L O N G smoke. The Dagners recently started offering...

    What to Feed a Wide Mouth Bowl

    I recently got caught up in what seems tobe a current wave of popularity for the Savinelli 320 KS (Author), so I ordered one tonight with a fairly deep chamber (for that type of pipe - 1.41) and a wide mouth (which is usual - .93) Just wondering if any of the Brothers with a 320 KS (or a pot...

    Tobacco Switcheroo in Cobs?

    I've got a cob I smoked less than 10 bowls of Orlik Racking Green in - an Aro, and another I test tasted Drucquer & Sons Red Lion -a Perique Blend- about a half-dozen times in. I was wondering if there would be any troubles encountered if I were to use these cobs now for heavy Burley blends...

    I was Speechless.......

    Well, today I promised I'd finish cleaning up the messiest corner of my library which entailed bringing down to the cellar all the rest of the boxes of tobacco tins and stacked Ball/Mason jars of tobacco to finally put them all with the rest of my stash on the old bookcase which was brought down...

    Dr. Grabow Royal Duke Smooth Billiard

    I was just going through my "pipes - used and otherwise unused" box and I picked up the one in the title. It's never been used and I recalled it was once encased in a plastic and cardboard showcase thing along with filters and pipe tools and whatever else you can imagine. It was given to me by...

    The "new" Mac Baren HH Syrian

    by which I mean, of course, the reintroduced one without the Syrian Latakia. Has anyone tried this yet? Any comments for or against? I know the former "HH Syrian Latakia" generally shot people over the moon, but now that the Syrian Latakia is gone, I'm wondering just what this new "HH Syrian"...

    My First Estate Pipe

    Tomorrow the USPS is scheduled to deliver my very first estate pipe, a Manx Meerschaum prince, the Meerschaum being from Laxey Pipe Ltd from the Isle of Man, which is what really snagged the deal for me. I've long held the Isle of Man in mythical esteem due to the motorcycle races and all...

    Hydrating Tobacco

    Let me start by saying I hate this topic because I hate this process. That's more than likely due to my experience being narrowed down to those awful made in China round silver discs with holes in them that you're supposed to throw in a glass of cold water for an indeterminate amount of time...

    Ghosting

    I'm trying to stop myself from myself, meaning I'm basically trying to stop doing what I usually do and buy a brand new pipe every 39 hours because I want to try to use a new tobacco. And don't tell me about cobs, I've got 16 of 'em, last count (and use 'em and love 'em all and they make me...

    Spotting a Hot Spot?

    At the end of my smoke (which went WAY longer than it usually does) I felt it get a little warm  in one place so I immediately dumped the contents, which was 98% black ash, out.  In doing the usual rudimentary cleaning I noticed the inside black bowl had a spot that had a little spotty white on...

    Horn Crack

    I've got a Savinelli Corno straight pot that is PERFECT for smoking medallions,, coins, etc, which I've been doing so the past couple years. Well, if you're at all familiar with this style, the stem is a military mount that goes into a piece of horn. Cleaning it a little while ago I pushed the...

    All Things Must Pass....But Why THEM?

    I just finished my hour's bowl of after-breakfast tobacco. I chose one I haven't smoked in awhile, relatively obscure, to stuff into one of my blasted Eltang pokers; McClelland's Auroroa. God, NOBODY does Virginias like McClelland, I don't care what anyone may say, they are/were the masters...
