Dunhill Comeback!

Don't think I've ever tried a Dunhill blend. Got nothing against them but, from some of the comments above, it may have simply been the price point. 8-)

Stem Wax/Polish?

Oh, good, I heard buffing wheel. Kudos! :king: I've had really good success shining stems with rouge and then carnuba on the buffing wheel BUT... if you get some White Wax... now THAT really brings out the mirror shine on stems for me. :thumbs: Got a little chunk from PIMO for about $3 when I order...

Smoking Tray / Valet

Mine is a bit more compact but it generally holds everything I need to carry a smoke outside or keep things at the ready on a bookcase shelf. Little leather valet from where I don’t recall, had it for years. Pipe cushion to hold a pipe, pipe cleaner sleeve, lighter, Rogers pipe knife (not in photo,...

Monocles

They tested our eyes every couple of years in school. I used to cross mine in hopes I'd get prescribed glasses... or better yet, a monocle. Now that I have glasses, I hate them. But I'd give them up for a monocle... or 20/20 vision. 8-)

Pipe makers

Well, that shouldn't be difficult. $200 could probably get you two good pipes. The science is in on angles and airhole measurements, so even lesser expensive pipe producers like Dr Grabow can churn out good smokers. That being said, I have no qualms with shelling out $100 or more on a Chacom pipe if...

CBD-Anyone else using?

I tried sublingual CBD oil, but can't say it did much. Granted, I doubt I used it consistently and I had no issues other than normal everyday work related stress.

What Are You Smoking June 2019

Happy Father's Day to current and future dads. Puffed on the new-to-me Cametto the other day. It's a tad bit heavy for clenching and driving long distance, especially when on rough pavement, but great for sitting outside in the glider. :thumbs:

Some pipe art

Awesome find~! Great looking pipe art there! :thumbs: I used to doodle a bit, too. I'm sure I've got some stuff out in boxes in the garage, but my main piece is one that was published in 1989 as cover art for the South Dakota Division of Veterans Affairs "VET LETTER". The art commemorated Governor G...
