...do your part by destroying as much tobacco as you can. Fire works best. 8)

I enjoy my pipe smoking but I freely admit it is a vice. A risk however I have made an informed decision to expose myself to.

Having smoke free days, and I would go as far as advocating going three consecutive days without tobacco once a month, is a good thing. I smoke a pipe because I want to, and not because I have to. Asserting that choice can only be done by occasional abstinence.

Only my opinion and feel free to puff as often and whenever you please.  :D

I almost never smoke before lunch; today I shall make an exception and also increase my normal usage. I shall also do the flaunting bit, taking my pipe everywhere I go, even if unlit. Hmm, let's see--a group 4 Dunhill shell billiard I think enhances my unusually handsome profile. The day calls for sport, and I'll see if I can get a rise or two from the hyper-nags.

Well, I'll certainly do my part, and help bring down the current Cuban government at the same time, by burning a small portion of their crops. :lol:

I am doing my part, when I got home from call I lit a bowl of Villager 1888 after dinner, in a new to me Charatan (not sure what shape to call it, Billiard/Canadian?) The bowl size throws me off.

]Charatan[/url]

I plan on destroying more pipe weed, and a cigar throughout the day  :pirat:

I'm doing my part! We all know tobacco use isn't the greatest for us but I look at how much the world economy actually owes a LOT to us tobacco users and tobacco companies!

That is a good question, I vote for Billiard.

I have a pipe that could go either bent Brandy or Apple. I like the interesting shapes.

That Frog Morton Cellar combined with some Hard Cider was very good yesterday. Glad I could due my part to tell the world to F^$% Off.

My guess is that it's a Charatan shape 402 large Canadian. Maybe it's the angle, but the shank looks to have been shortened slightly. Is the nomenclature centered halfway between the bowl and the end of the shank? If not, it was possibly cut and redrilled to fix a cracked mortise.

I collect the Charatan 402s, btw.  8)

The nomenclature is halfway down the shank. Sadly the gent that refurbished it was over zealous and the stamp is difficult to read. Great smoking pipe though!

^It could be it's just a stubby Canadian then!  :lol: 

I agree, Charatans are some of the finest smokers out there. I'd say that pipe for pipe they outsmoke just about everything in my collection. Bravo!
