    Just wondered, at the mention of your rock dust, how it would work mixed with some kind of high heat tollorent bonding agent and then poked in around the shank end of a mm cob. To keep from bottom burnout.

    I like it a lot! The walnut really does add a different kind of sweetness to the smoke. It's hard to pin down. This thing smokes like a champ too. The draw is perfect, it's light, and smokes nice and cool.

    I feel like MacArthur when I clench it too :byg: :bing:

    You never know, you may just save a lot of pipes. Gotta be better than gunk or mud.

    Nothings better than mud, if you got the right wrastlers in it, well maybe jello or some slippery stuff, but those wont fix a pipe, but they might cause one, but I am derailing myself:rolleyes:

    I conducted a bit of an experiment and mixed 3 parts Astley's 44 to 1 part Uhle's #00, and it came out really good. Only mixed a bowl's worth, because I really prefer my 44 by itself, but this reminds me of Reiner LGF without the touch of perique. Mixing two tobaccos this good was pretty much guaranteed to give a desirable result, and I am not disappointed. Smoking it in my Dunhill Shell LBS.

    Been raining pretty hard here for the past hour or so. The plants are a wicked vivid green. I really don't prefer to live this far south, but it has its benefits, and the beautiful plant life is one of them. The ticks, not so much. But hey, you take the good with the bad.
