A Yello-Bole Spartan is on its way----with a stinger! It's slim pickings in the brylon racks at WV Smokeshop. Get 'em while you can. :king:

We have created a shortage. The brylons will become like Stonehaven. People will get an alert when shops have them in stock. Folks will start buying them up and doubling the price on the 'Bay.

First impression on my bent the pipe. Burns cool but rim gets hot. Had to run a pipe cleaner down once to clear a gurgle. I smoked how I usually do witch is fast. Did pack the bowl rather lightly. Pipe is a little heavy, 50gr compared to 42gr for my Dr Grabow omega. The omega is almost identical in size. All in all I can’t really see why these got such a bad rap, other than the garish colors.

The Smoke weighs 37.8 g. The bowl is a little small, but it seems to be a good smoke.

If I were to say to you, “Can you keep a secret?”
Would you know what pipe to smoke and where would you keep it?

If you say, “I love brylon,” would that foul the situation?
Hey, buddy,
Tobacco and brylon are the right combination.

Who broke my heart? Brylon. Brylon.
Stinger to the target, Brylon. Brylon.
Briar snobs think they’re smart, they’re not.

Shoot that brylon pipe to my heart.
Shoot that brylon pipe.
Shoot that brylon pipe to my heart,
Shoot that brylon arrow.

No resting the pipe,
Puff as you please,
Pure flavor is delivered,
Enjoy it at ease.

It looks like a pipe, it smokes like a pipe,
What seems like a spark is a bright charring light.

The sweetest smoke
Is a pipe like no other,
So smoke a plastic pipe
And raise your aim….RAISE YOUR AIM!!

-----Cupid shot a brylon arrow through my heart.


ABC: August Brylon Challenge. Are you game or are you lame?

John Bull English, jarred four years, in this Bakelite. No idea who made it, and there's a hairline crack in the shank. We'll see how it goes!

Are those grains painted on? I like the contrast between the stummel and the stem. That'll make for a great Christmas pipe.

Doesn't seem to be painted on. Looks like it's the way the composites mingled together. It is a pretty little thing!

I thought a group shot of my ABC pipes might generate some excitement. They are all clean and ready for action on the 1st.

So what is the collective noun for a group of brylons? Is it a cast? Maybe it is a clutch? Perhaps it is just a herd like other groups of pipes we thin, etc.

Would the plural be "Brylii", perchance? Or "Brylae"?
