Crusty's trade of the week. Ceramic edition.

I have a similar looking ceramic pipe that I picked up in a box of estate pipes. Mine is marked LePeltier USA on the bottom. The shank and stem are a bit different. Mine is unsmoked. Apparently the company remains in business, at least there is a website. http://www.lepeltier-pipes.com/index.html

What Are You Smoking June 2019

Last evening I enjoyed three pipes, McBarren Navy Flake in a Tinderbox Milano Bulldog; Sutliff Match Ready Rubbed in a Barclays Bulldog; and Rattray Red Rapparee in a Savinelli 804KS. It was a very enjoyable evening with the exception of marauding mosquitoes. The pipes and citronella helped with tha...

Plum Pudding & SR question

FWIW: Last week I opened a tin of Plum Pudding Special Reserve that I bought last November. It was just fine. In fact, it was sublime. Plenty of that Plum Pudding smell and smoking goodness. And, better than the standard Plum Pudding.

Re: Old pipe shops from the 60's and 70's

Loved the Tinderbox shops, made my trips to the mall with my wife bearable. When I was in collage at K-State, several decades ago, there was a local "Town Crier" shop. One of my four "original" pipes came from there, a small straight apple briar. As far as I know, Louisiana is the only place with To...

The world keeps changing, eh? But there is a whole new world of tobaccos out there.

Re: Latest Pipe Acquisition 2019

This past week I picked up a lot of estate pipes from a friend who received them from an Episcopal Priest who was obviously a serious pipe smoker. My friend is not, so when he found out that I've taken up the pipe, he offered them to me for a price to be negotiated. We made the deal for between $5.0...

Re: MM Charles Towne Cobbler!

The Charles Town Cobbler is far and away my favorite cob, heck, one of my favorite pipes. I just ordered another - thanks for the heads-up!
