Pimp my beard? Here ya go. I'm pretty sure it has been longer one other time. I'm thinking I might let it go through the new year.

They are perfectly fine. I have had some really amazing tobacco from the bulk jars. My only issue is that I like to read reviews based on what I am in the mood for at the time. So, I buy tins.

The jars of bulk are really a much better deal.

I'm a cigar man myself these days (quit cigarettes a quite a few years ago) but my dad always smoked a partially metal pipe that looked a bit like this:

I haven't seen anybody comment on this stye of pipe in this thread. Is there anything good/bad about this kind of pipe?

Smoked some of the DaVinci. A very nice, cool smoke, with mellow hints of sweetness. The room note, out of this world!

Looks similar to a Kirsten pipe. The Kirsten pipe is designed to trap excess moisture in a specially designed chamber. I plan on getting one eventually, but they are currently sourcing a new vendor for parts.

Never heard of that particular pipe, but there are a fair number of metal pipe brands around.
