Yeah great to communicate with and I love that the order receipt/packing slip was hand written. Smoking the pipe as we speak.

Woah a combination of the best/strongest tobacco I've ever smoked and a much larger bowl than I'm used to and I'm buzzing pretty hard. I think this pipe is a winner.

Well having a smoke outside as its ridiculously nice tonight. Opted to just go with the amphora (?) mellow blend instead of aromatic. Really growing on me - seems to get nicer the deeper I get in to the bowl...

You joke, I actually clean the inside of the stem of my estate pipes with a pipe cleaner soaked in alcohol followed by a 30 second dip in Starsan.

Try some 1792 Flake. Actually, it's weird, I only smoke twice a week, but after a couple years of that, I'm starting to not have as bad a reaction to really strong blends. Smoking on a full stomach helps!

Chip carved pipe with a Winchester 12 gauge shot shell for the little cap on the stem. Got it from Boswell Pipes in PA. Came with everything here except for two of tobaccos. Excited about the pouch as now I'm more portable with my pipes.
How much did the pipe run you? I'm looking at their site and everything seems to be sold.

They sell out quickly. New pipes are released each week and can be gone in a matter of a few hours.
