    I am going to include a photo. You will recognize the poker and many of you may also have a Bullitt Proof Cob.
    I had ordered a pipe from Basil for my Birthday. I could not get the pipe out of my head-literally. It spoke my name from the time I saw it. Anyhow upon receiving a package I sat down to open it up. I was already in great anticipation but when I opened the box--WOW--JUST--SUPER--WOW, WOW, WOW.
    Basil GIFTED me a Bullitt Proof Cob along with the other pipe for my Birthday. I am so deeply honored and humbled at Basils kind gesture. I have to say that I am so happy and had to share the fact that he did this. Such great and wonderful people here at PSF. This site is literally full of great, wonderful people and I MUST share the kindess and great work of Basil Meadows. The mans pipes are absolutely wonderful--great workmanship. The Poker many will recognize from his recent photos. Let me tell you that he does beautiful work--His Cobs are stunners too. To Basil Meadows--Thank you--you are a kind and honorable man.

    Well folks I have not yet smoked the cob. However I have been smoking that sweet poker rotated some Mellow Mallard and McCranies Red Ribbon in it. Also tried some of my PS Luxury BE Flake crumbled up with Carter Hall mix that I like. That pipe not only has a stunning outside beauty--the draw is wonderful as is the drilling. It doesn't heat up and smokes dry as all heck. Basil hit a home run with that pipe for sure.
    I'd tell anyone to give the mans pipes a try--I sure am beyond happy.
