    Popped into Boston’s famous L.J. Peretti today!

    And I managed to leave with my shirt, lol. Quarter pounds of two new favorites: century, a proper stout Latakia which I couldn’t leave without. And D-7485, a va/bur with orientals and a dash of Latakia. Also, a pocket sized shop pipe that was a steal. Fantastic shopping experience in there...

    Brigham POTY 2021

    Just picked this up as a birthday present for myself. Not terribly easy to lay hands on. This is the second year of the Scottish theme and is the Highlander, with flannel sock, whisky tube case, and highland warrior tamper. Some beautiful flame grain on this pipe.

    Anybody here a Brigham man?

    I recently started listening to the pipes magazine radio show. The fella Brian Levine that hosts it is/was the big dog for Brigham pipe sales in the u.s. I know it’s his job, but talked them up a bit one episode. I watched a trunk show presentation he did on them in Florida too on the YouTube...

    Acetone for Lakeland ghost removal?

    I’m doing some looking into trying successfully remove Lakeland ghost. I’m particularly sensitive to it, as it makes the corner of my mouth and tongue burn like a chemical irritant. I saw on some other forums people have talked about soaking a pipe in acetone and then drying, by lighting the...

    Just a quick rave

    I recently did some business by phone with a company up in the great frozen north called victory cigars. They went above and beyond to get me what I was looking for, which was not an easy item to lay hands on. The customer service was outstanding by any metric. Friendly, knowledgeable and went...

    Massive pipe tobacco and cigar tax increases

    Im not sure where this ought to be posted anymore, and hope it doesn’t end up in the rubber room. It’s political, but I believe we like minded brethren will come together on this. Im sure you are all aware of the upcoming $3.5 trillion human infrastructure spending bill being kicked around in...

    4th generation pipes

    I got an email about these on sale, plus a free lighter. I was looking for two new pipes for sitting in my chair style smoking. I picked up a savinelli 316, which is working out well enough. I was wondering if anybody had one from these lines? I’m looking at the Argang line specifically.

Nice to see all is well, and all the usual suspects are still here. Place got a nice face lift, and my pic is now sideways lol. Life has been very busy, but I’m...

    Old Mora knife find

    I found this in a box of old tools the other day on my trash route. Got it cleaned up a bit, and worked a few knicks out of the blade. It appeared to be pretty well loved, but the old guy who was my customer died. So his kids are chucking out his “junk” tools and such. It’s an old K.J Ericsson...

    New knife

    I recently decided to go in a new direction for my edc knife. I changed from a Swiss army to a fixed blade. After some research and deliberation into makers and the laws of my state, I pulled the trigger. I went with the Bark River Bravo necker 2. 3.5 inch blade with a 3 inch cutting edge...

    Bushcraft saws

    I’ve recently been researching bushcraft saws. I’ve always just used a bow saw, but apparently folding saws have come a long way. And lately I’ve been wanting something more compact. I try to keep to the three (main) tool rule. So, I settled into a TBS boar for a knife, which I’ve come to love...

    End of an era (sad news)

    <img src="" alt="End of an era (sad news) Fc2a9c10"/> I felt like having a few beers and some pizza this evening with my wife. I ran into the packy to get some of the one and only Newcastle brown ale. Lovingly referred to as “the brown”. I was...

    It’s back!

    I just noticed, so maybe it’s old news. Peterson tins are back though. And sold out in most places. And some have new names. My personal favorite, Irish oak, is now called Irish cask. Anyway, this made me happy today.

    An issue of gifted cigars

    I was gifted some cigars not long ago. I laid them away carefully in my humidor and pulled one here and there for sampling. Some of them are wonderfully strong and flavorful, and I appreciate the gifts greatly. If I really enjoy one, I’ll look it up. Not very easy, as some don’t have much to go...

    Compact vs full size

    My wife recently got her permit, and a friend had told her she would be best served by getting a compact 9mm. From my personal experience, I told her they were unwieldy yet functional. As in, harder to keep on target, but still puts lead in the general area. She’s thinking more about...
