    So, I just got back from training in Boston and there was a package waiting for me. What a great looking pipe - Thank you Archer!!
    Now I need to decide what to smoke in it. So, I figured, since it was a PSF thread that started this gift, why not take a vote on what to smoke in it. A simple vote of Va, Va/Per, English, Burley and Aro. I figured specific blends wouldn't work.. way too many out there.
    Thanks again to Archer for sending me this beauty!!!!

    Congrats!

    Anything will probably smoke great in that beauty, but I voted for a Vaper. :puffy:

    Enjoy!

    If it were mine - Lane 1-Q no doubt:beck: That is one beautiful pipe, the grain really pops, Archer's skill is much greater than he thinks/feels it is!
    P.S. don't tell him tho he might get the big-head and not visit with us poor folks.;)

    Looks to me like it needs English. It just doesn't scream Va. Nice looking piece!

    A nice fat plug of Ten Russians would smoke nicely.

    Yes I agree, the pic does his work no justice either.

    Oh - I know.. I won't be braggin' about this one to anybody. Once Archer hits the main stream -- well he won't be the PSF Robin Hood anymore... get it.. robin hood-archer ... hehehe - 'sometimes I just crack myself up... :)

    A poker like that, with such a stunning grain pattern screams Va/Burley to me, so I voted on Va. Of course, 1-Q would seem at home in it too. It's a beautiful straight forward shape, I would match a straight forward tobacco to suit.

    I would go with Kicken Chicken, only seems fit for PSF members pipe to smoke a PSF blend.

    I'm sure it would smoke any blend well, but I voted VA/Per.

    LOL!! So far it's Va/Per with Virginia and English running a close second... I'll leave the vote open for a little while longer just to see what happens.

    Great looking pipe! I think it screams Virginia or maybe Va/Per.
