Starting off my smoking day with the last of my stash of vintage Edgeworth Slices in an old medium bend grain etched Preben Holm Ben Wade Prominence B freehand with a black vulcanite stem. Ice tea and bergs is my drink on another very hot and humid day.
House of Calabash 28 yr 9 Vas w/Par in a current production Kirsten VX. I saved this pipe for a first smoke with a special tobacco. I visited Steven Books shop on my trip this May up hwy 5. After visiting with him an a visitor Alex, Steven brought out a vessel crammed to the top with a fermented with plums note. In spite of the heat here, 95 F. I had to try it.
Smoked with 2 relights to last 10% of bowl. Then many relights but so good.
Just finished smoking FVF in a 2002 caramel colored medium bend paneled sandbasted Rinaldo Egea Megas 04. The bowl is as big as my fist, so I got almost a three hour smoke in as I finished reading a biography of Paul Frees I've meant to finish for a while now.
