Re: What aids your pipe enjoyment?

I'm one of those who feel that it's the pipe that adds to my general enjoyment of life. While I read, listen to music, write, do paperwork, research, while smoking a pipe, none of those things add enjoyment. Instead, the pipe makes all those things better. I'm a latecomer to the pipe; it was the fi...

Missouri Meerschaum corn cob.

My order of pipes has just arrived from 4noggins :clap: (Great service & I highly recommend) I've been intrigued by members comments about MM corn cobs. How could a dirt cheap pipe rank amongst pipe connoisseurs favourites? So off course, I had to find out for myself & ordered a Country Gent...

Well, well, well, ....... while I've been sitting here worrying if & when my parcels will arrive unmolested by 'the man', I had the sudden urge to go outside (I'm a clearer of negative entities, what Christians would call an 'exorcist', & have learnt to heed these inexplicable feelings &...

I think the folks you ordered from might make a difference. "Pipes and Cigars" might make an inspector likely to check. 4Noggins might not. Dunno... You're spot on Rev. Tom. I think it was Pipes & Cigars who I tried to make an order with but they don't ship outside of the U.S. An emai...

Waiting is a trip ! Post pics when ya get it :awesome: Although I'm keen to be holding my new pipes in my hot not so little hands, it's the tobacco that I'm really sweating on. If my packages are inspected, I'm up for big dollars on duty. Pipe tobacco range here since the ridiculous 'plain packagin...

Re: G'day from Down Under

It's the blast of nicotine that I need. When I ditched the cigs for a pipe I got in the habit of just getting my hit of nicotine & the bowl is extinguished before I reach for another hit. Just a not one filters: they will reduce the tar, but they will also reduce the nicotine. My brain loves ni...

Re: How to clean a 2nd hand pipe.

I scrub them as clean as I can get them inside with PGA and bristle cleaners. Let a damp one soak in the shank/stem for a bit to soften things up. I will find a drill bit that fits the ID of the shank and turn it by hand to get that cleaned up. Clean the bit pretty obsessively with PGA in the outsi...
