Re: Petersons

While fooling around on the laptop last week, I bid on a Capstan briar for $11 with a max bid of $12.50. I'm now the (soon to be) proud owner of a 2nd hand pipe. The condition looked ok but the pics were a bit grainy. How to I clean & prepare it? I noticed a member mentioned that he soaks his pi...

Nice Peterson.

A Calabash just feels right in the hand for me. Though I do like the look of those short stubby straights with a thick shank.

Re: Savinelli Swap?

Re: A run down on the MB 7 Seas line

That's a handy review Ruff. I've got a 100g tin of 7 Seas Red on the way. Sounds nice.

I also ordered a 100g tin of 7 Seas Royal Blend. Both sounded rather tasty.
