Re: Early morning discovery

From 15yo I wouldn't get out of bed until I had a ciggie, until I heard that that's not the healthiest of habits. Since then I force myself to make a nice cup of tea sweetened with honey before I light up. For the last seven years or so, I make a cuppa & sit outside watching the birds while I pu...

Re: Latest Tobacco Purchase 2018

https://i.imgur.com/IQVc4ZQ.jpg Well, well. Looky what showed up with the mail today! Very nice. You guys in the States are so fortunate. Guesstimating that lot to be around 18 ounces worth of baccy, it would cost $750 here. Fingers crossed that my tobacco orders get through ............ touch wood.

Re: Recommendations needed for a new pipe that smokes cool, that either comes with filters or with room to fashion a fil

How infuriating. Pipes & Cigars has a sale on pipes. Found a Barracini Churchwarden. Dr Grabow Savoy Bent. 3 cob pipes including one with a long stem. All for just over $USD100. Proceeded to checkout only to find that they don't ship to Australia. What the ...? The total order was just over $USD...

Kevin ...... and never heard of Filto pipes before. They've gone out of business by the look of it.

Very interesting looking pipes. Wouldn't mind having one in my collection actually.

Re: Recommendations needed for a new pipe that smokes cool, that either comes with filters or with room to fashion a fil

A look at the Missouri Meerschaum co web site shows they're out of stock of the pipe I'd like (Dwarf Cobbit Corn Pipe) Thinking I could simply purchase a curved & longer stem piece shows that that's also out of stock (Cobbit Wizard Bit) They're nice & cheap so it's definitely worth adding o...

Re: Recommendations needed for a new pipe that smokes cool, that either comes with filters or with room to fashion a fil

I'm not going to mention the Kirsten. It's too esoteric and I can't imagine what it would cost to ship it from Seattle to the end of the earth. I'm going to mention a Filto pipe, but good luck finding one Down Under. Actually, they're probably lousy with 'em down there. :king: Just checked out the ...

Re: Recommendations needed for a new pipe that smokes cool, that either comes with filters or with room to fashion a fil

I'll put up a Grabow Royalton bent bulldog #83. Big enough to smoke cool and will accept either Medico or Grabow filters. I think 'tobaccopipes.com' in Spring Hill, FL has one. I can get one from the factory, but it might be more expensive because of the shipping and customs fee. ted https://www.to...

Re: Recommendations needed for a new pipe that smokes cool, that either comes with filters or with room to fashion a fil

I don't know what kind of filters you have in Australia, but I much prefer paper filters (Medico and Grabow) over balsa filters. They just seem more efficient to me since the smoke goes through the filter vs. around it. A Falcon is a nice filter pipe if you put a snippet of pipe cleaner in the humi...
