Those thin opinel blades are wonderful for cutting tobacco
This is my fave, cheap pocket knife. I never keep them very long, the most frequent loss is going through security when I forget to leave it at home or in the car. Sometime they will return it, but usually they say they have to throw it out... :x
That's the Carbone version, not the stainless steel. That knife will take an edge that will split a hair that's dropped on it. It'll keep that edge, too. I walk the dog through the woods and I open my knife to lop off the heads of weeds we walk by. A flick of the wrist is all it takes.

Hi Wildcrow .. this worked out good anyway, I've been having a difficult time keeping up with various things and kind of keeping up overall.
I was assigned to you and so I'll get my package to you sent out Monday also.

Look guys , the one thing I dig about pipe smokers , especially the folks around here .... is ... we are all stand up folks ! We get busy and wrapped up in things and thats because we're alive . When I saw the list of people for this fist " pass " , it made me smile because I knew that everyone was a DFM .... Damn Fine Member !

I'd like to mention that I am most appreciative of this site . Sure , its smaller than what we're used to and there are other places to go and talk about pipes etc [ and btw , you can mention them here if you want , nobody cares .. lol ] , but imo , every single member here is excellent and I'm quite happy with quality over quantity .. and thats the damn truth . Its why I wanted to come here

Ncrobb hooked me up! Couple cigars I haven't smoked in probably fifteen years or more, Arturo Fuente Hemingway, very nice, think I'll take them with me tomorrow and have one with pops. A tin of SG Brown No. 4, I love SG and have thoroughly enjoyed their blends thus far, this one was on my list too. Some homebrewed Rum soaked twist that looks professional and delicious and "Chocolate Manhood" which smells great. Robb nailed it, I want to smoke all of it. On top of that he included an amazing handmade tamper with sleeve, emergency cob and pouch of SWRA, one of my favorite OTC blends too. It was topped off with a handwritten note giving it the finishing touch. Great stuff.

I am glad it arrived and there is something there you haven’t tried. That rum twist will put lead in your pencil. Enjoy my friend.

I feel like a schmuck.

A pm to Ruff has been sitting in my out box here for apparently weeks, now.

Sorry guys. Next time I'll actually click send before getting distracted by something shiny
