This first one is stainless steel with brown micarta scales and is the one I used to cut my 3P's with.

This second one is a Santoku with maple burl and black resin scales.
Image
This third one is my take on a hunter in stainless steel and dessert iron wood scales.
Image
This fourth image is all stainless steel. Same hunter as the one above but with a smaller version also.. First one has spalted avocado wood on the handle, the other two have dyed leapord wood handles.

Thanks for looking! Now back to your regularly programmed Latest Tobacco Purchases!
That santoku is a stunner and appeals to every fiber of the kitchen geek in me. May need to have a conversation regarding one soon

Haven't purchased any tobacco in quite some time. I really don't need any. But last night I snagged a 250g box of Sammy G chocolate flake (which I had none of) and 2 more tins of McConnell lat flake.

*one big reason I haven't ordered much is the additional $6 fee most online retailers have to charge for signature required shipping. I try to find places that ignore that particular regulation

Sorry! Posted this in the wrong place.
That pipe was made by Steve and Roswitha Anderson (S&R Woodcrafts). Their pipes were / are outstanding.

Steve is no longer with us but I believe Roswitha still owns and operates Pipes & Pleasures . . . Columbus, OH.

Daughters and Ryan Rimboche S.J. from Smoking Pipes. I really regret not getting in an order for Picayune before they dropped the axe. Oh well, you can't miss that which you never knew. This R.S.J is mighty tasty. I hope it sticks around. @simplepipes, I hear Three Sails is safe!

To my understanding.. Gold block was a codger otc blend in the UK back in the day. I got a tin i wanna pop some day. Have you tried the stuff?
It is considered a codger blend - probably because it was widely available in pouches. Haven't tried it yet - got a boatload of stuff in recently. Will let you know what I think. ✔
Did you ever try this? I am curious what you think.

Nope - it went straight into the tobacco dungeon.
I'll let you know when I decide to pop one.

You people with patience really try my patience. :lol:
I still got a little store credit left since SP can't seem to get my order right after 3 tries... I will grab a tin and hope for the best.
