    Longest of long shots but after years of failing to find one in the wild figured I’d cast my net here: I’m looking for a Ferndown Bark bulldog or Rhodesian with silver band and a Cumberland stem. Love how they look so it’s been one of my bucket list pipes for a long time, but then I picked up my...

    The Beast at P&C

    C&D’s the Beast is one of my favorite blends but they’ve only produced two batches of it for general retail, so far as I know. So imagine my surprise to see it show up in stock on P&C yesterday when I went to pick up those new Cascadia plugs. They still have a few if any other perique lovers are...

    The Return of Kingfisher

    Exciting news, brethren--Germain is once again making Butera's Kingfisher! Haven't found any myself but talked to a couple B&M's who received and (of course) immediately sold out of it. It's now in a circular tin but still has the original rectangular label clumsily stuck on it haha. Happy...

    Watch City's Xmas Ozark Wizard!

    Now this is seriously cool--our own Ozark Wizard created this year's holiday blend for Watch City Cigars! Way to go, Ozzie, can't wait to try this! There's a fellow in the Ozarks of Missouri who is a master at making smooth as silk blends with components that normally would be considered harsh...

    Jesse Jones Halloween Pipe

    Received Jesse’s Halloween 2019 pipe, a one of a kind beauty inspired by good old Pyramid Head from Silent Hill. The artistry of this is just breathtaking, and it’s light as a ghost. I’ll treasure this for the duration. Thanks again, Oceleot55!

    1792 MIA?

    What gives?! Just looked around online and 1792 is out of stock everywhere—I thought I was in the tiny minority of folks who love it but apparently not! Really hoping this is just a short term shortage and it hasn’t gone on the endangered species list. Anyone got any intel?

    Pipes for Sale: Dunhill Patent, Bjarne, Sav, Pete & More

    I've got a big move coming up and am using this opportunity to thin the herd--if I'm going to ship pipes across the country that I never smoke, I might as well ship them to you! Unless otherwise noted these are in well-loved but smoked condition--some I just don't reach for anymore, and others I...

    Big Move

    Have a pretty major transition coming up that will no doubt keep me off the grid for a sizeable stretch--I'm moving to North Carolina at the end of the month. Have a ton to do between now and then, and will be roadtripping to boot, but can't wait to be back down south and be closer to family and...

    Came back from a training exercise in the mountains to discover a mysterious package waiting for me. Like a greenie I opened it up and the damn thing went off if my face—a retaliatory strike from Kaitlyn3837: Thanks so much, Kaitlyn, I’ve had and dug the LFD and KFC and the other two are new...

    Montana or Idaho Better for Tobacco & Hooch?

    Traveling through MT and ID and curious if folks have first hand experience buying pipe tobacco and/or whiskey in either state. Looked up the tax situation online but that didn’t shed much light on what stuff generally costs you out the door—MT doesn’t do sales tax, for example, but their rates...

    K&K Releasing Dunhill Match Blends

    For those concerned about the imminent demise of Dunhill pipe tobacco, it sure looks like Kohlhase and Kopp has you covered with their new line of Robert McConnell Heritage Blends. However they taste, some of the names are definitely good for a laugh!

    End of Tax Free Online Shopping

    Not strictly a tobacco issue, obviously, but one the will undoubtably be felt by the community: the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of allowing states to collect sales tax from out-of-state etailers.
