    Got this set from Thompson's Cigars back ~'96-ish (new) for some outrageous price of ~$100 (may have been $90?) for two very nice kind of fancy but also kind of cheap (price-wise). I used to smoke these two quite a bit in my off time from work (O.R. Wilford Hall Med Ctr, Lackland AFB). For some reason, these seem to smoke better than I remembered.....must be "honing" my technique better these days I guess.

    I'll shoot pics of the claw tomorrow.....she'z on the wait-list "2-be smoked" for tomorrow. :eek:hyeah:

    Damn Puff you never cease to amaze me with you pipe collection, those are truly beautiful. And the top pic is a bit bright but it looks like the top one is a claw meer and if thats the case then im jealous again lol. But anyhow very beautiful, i think if you were to post pics of all your pipes it would probably take a couple of pages lol :P

    Bubba, you are absolutely correct. She'z a claw&egg but I did some meer-carving on my own. She had a "spade, heart, diamond, and a club" each carved into the plain areas between the clawz. I didn't like it and felt it looked tacky (too tacky for Puff) so I got my exacto knife and some beezwax and went to town. Now she'z bettah, IMO. I took it eazy doing this and know meer gets softer when wet, so I'd moisten her down on the area I wanted to carve and then gently took the crap off my pipe. Then gave her a good coat of beezwax then added more beezwax when I'd smoke her while she was warm. Worked out OK, I think.

    I'll get better pics of theze girlz later on for y'all to see.

    Yes, Thompsons still does have good dealz on pipes but they are few and far between.
