Re: Latest Pipe Purchase 2020

Yesterday I picked up a couple of Arley Curtz estate pipes. Awaiting delivery. Damn , you're on a roll !!! Officially I'm in PAD purgatory, but when this opportunity arose, I was forced to find a workaround. Apparently an old friend of Mr. Curtz, who obtained a fair number of his pipes directly fro...

Earlier this afternoon smoked WC Rhythm & Blues and Terrapin Station in my initial smokes of these two Arley Curtz estate pipes. R&B in the Bamboo Brandy and TS in the Pot. Good smokin’.

Re: Professional Pipe Repairs

I had a couple of old pipes restored by Anthony Cook at Cook's Fine Pipe Works. He was recommended to me by George Dibos after I sent pictures of the pipes to George. I figured that was pretty high praise and George wasn't wrong. A '49 Dunhill Shell LB and a Sasieni Four-Dot Natural Regent came back...

Savinelli 320

I must like them, I have five: Alligator, Tundra, Roma, Siena, plain smooth. They feel good in hand and for me are clenchable in the short run. I primarily smoke Latakia heavy blends; Balkans, English. A great pipe for Plum Pudding and Bengal Slices.

Watch City Aromatic #7 anyone?

OK, I’m smoking Aro #7 as we speak. This is a burly based and forward blend. Nutty and slightly sweet. If I were to rename this blend it would be Pecan Pie; not as sweet as the real thing but just as tasty. Then again, maybe it is that Thanksgiving pecan pie in the fridge calling to me? Smoking it i...
