Peterson Irish Oak in the Johs bulldog
Has to be the German engineering!
Post a pic! I have been looking at one of his bulldogs on smokinpipes, your photo could sway my decision!
this is the one, but obviously taken from the vendor and in an unsmoked state. I can take a proper photo tomorrow, but I'm about to hit the hay now.
edit: I'll say I do like it....it's a long pipe, and with an unusual but, in my opinion, unique sense of proportion. It smokes well, but the reasonable prices are due to the rapidity with which the pipes are made....I suspect the drilling may be hit and miss, but that assumption may be unfounded. Mine is a good smoker though a few drops of moisture tend to catch in the shank. Still, it doesn't gurgle and I like smoking it once in a while when at home. I will also mention that due to the long size and great thick walls, it isn't very balanced and is TERRIBLE for clenching. It would definitely be bad for one's teeth to regularly clench a pipe like this...it's pretty heavy, but almost all the weight is at the end of the pipe, which is somewhere in the neighborhood of six and a half inches long, if I'm correct. Still, good for sitting and having a smoke at home
Some 1Q in my Country Gentleman while reading tobacco reviews. Yup, its a pretty busy Friday night.
Uhle's 00 (thanks Flatbush Paul) in a medium bend straight grain 2000 Winslow C silver spigot.
Altadis Frosty Mint in a brand new MM Legend. Loving this. Reminds me of my cigarette smoking days, when my girlfriend smoked Yves St. Laurent Menthols. I keep wanting to inhale it. Nice change of pace.
Boswell's Apple Strudel (thanks Stormy) in a smooth straight late 1970s Tinderbox Selected Grecian Briar Dublin. Coffee's all drank, kittens are sleepy, and I may join them
Final smoke of the evening/morning is Mohawk River in a 1979 rusticated medium bend Italian Sir Jeffrey Dublin.
Solani Golden Blend 779 English Luxury.
Late night running up and down the highway
did not get to enjoy what i had previously started
time to resume my day off
finishing a warm beer and enjoying some oriental in my rock cob
while listening to a Fistful of Metal by Anthrax
Early afternoon here in South Africa & a beautiful clear day. Had some rain earlier though. Enjoying a bowl of Old Gowrie in a Pietenpauw Bing I got from him last year. The pipe is pretty much dedicated to Rattrays Va's.
Still snowing, but everything seems to be manageable.
Coffee, going well with a Dan Pipe full of Mick McQuiad plug, supplied by friend Morse.
LBF in my DGE modified cob and some Community coffee. This LBF is amazing!
Borkum Riff Bourbon in a Wessex billiard and Luzianne coffee with chicory while I contemplate what to fix for breakfast...
St Bruno Flake / Falcon / Plymouth rustic whilst shopping in town - perishing cold wind, but no snow!
Now a big bowl of Coniston Cut plug in a Falcon / Hyperbole smooth & coffee.
Kendal Kentucky cradling Louisiana Flake in a maximized Ser Jacopa. Hope you boys in New England are tucked in safe and warm.
Just finished a quarter bowl of Wessex Dark Flake from 2001 (thanks Mike) in a pipe from Maddis (get a pipe from this guy!) that I'm breaking in. Now onto some Dark Twist.
This morning's smoke will be Half & Half (old formula) in a Dr. G. Trapwell, with Community Coffee on the side. Will be running errands later so I will pack a Falcon with #5100 for the short trips around town.
Last night, Miss Daisy and I went out for a couple of brewskies (Modelo Negro on tap) at a local Mexican restaurant. The weather warmed up so we sat out on the patio with our drinks. I was smoking some DGTed 1Q and a member of the band came over and asked what I was smoking. He said it was making him hungry. Turns out he was a former pipe and cigar smoker that quit smoking when he had pneumonia. He said he had several "nice" pipes. When I left I gave him my name and cell phone number and told him if he wanted to find a new home for some of his pipes, that I would certainly be interested in adopting them. We will see how this turns out.
Good morning PSF!
Before I go to work, a mellow bowl of MB Navy Flake in MM Washington.
Have a nice day everyone!
