    This estate purchase came in today! :D It's a "Biltmore Custom," according to the shank, and made in Israel. It's actually far nicer looking and better-made than I anticipated. I don't think it was properly cleaned but it's not in bad shape. I'll need some tips on how to spruce it up a bit, especially the stem and bit, but the bowl doesn't need much polish and a little reaming will be good. Not much cake inside and draws nicely. Excited to drop some English Luxus in it and see how we far :)

    An estate Blakemar Liverpool at a fantastic price from a fellow PSF'er. Lovely pipe, perfect proportions and quite light.

    I still don't know what the difference between a Liverpool and a Lovat is, though.

    Just got a Savinelli-made Iwan Ries off eBay for under $15 with shipping. I'll probably restore it and give it to a friend for Christmas.

    I've telling my wife a lot lately about tobacco-geddon. It's a mythical time in the future when tobacco will be valuable and hard to obtain. I don't know when or even if this will ever happen but it's my story and I'm sticking to it (its all in the marketing ;)). To that end I decided that my latest tobacco order would consist of a lot of bulks - the "ordinary" stuff that forms the backbone of a lot of cellars. Specifically:

    1Q
    BCA
    RLP-6
    7 Seas Black
    7 Seas Royal

    I also got some mixins for a GH Red/Chocolate Silk blend that I got from FB Paul.

    And then I picked up a couple of tins of Peterson's Holiday Seasons 2012. Wow does that stuff smell good!

    This order should last a while - unless I have to trade some for ammo or coffee. ;)

    Hey Dillon let me know what you think of Star of the East. I'm thinking about buying a tin.

    I love it, I actually just ran out so I bought a pound more. Going from a tin to a lb should say enough.
    But I find it kinda close to Penzance with C&D's own little touch.
