Forgive me Father, for I have sinned.

Just pulled the trigger on a Radice o/c twin bore (on sale!) and a wicked Kaywoodie over at Park Lane Tobacconist.

Nice and helpful via email, I will be adding these guys to my list of vendors. Took a little time to set up an account (they have age verifying software that thinks I don't exist) but now I'm rolling baby.

Just don't

tell

my

wife.

Guys I know I'm being a forum loser here. I ordered the pipes, and now I can't get the pictures from the website! They're gone! So I gotta wait and take my own. Total pisser!

So, my apologies gentlemen. In the meantime, here's a little light jazz.


Da de da, dum dum, da de da....

Well don't be curious for long Dondi - they don't make twin bores and don't oil cure any more, so if that's a thing you want to experience, then move soon.

This happened to be the exact pipe I have been waiting for out of radice, a bent billiard with the Underwood rustication, twin bore, oil cure. Just stumbled across it and immediately put it in the cart.

I don't get PAD too bad anymore, but this was a classic case. Spontaneous, irreversible, credit card damaging, wife infuriating.... bliss.

Some rim charring is to be expected.

Meh, I've heard better.

No matter, what you should be working on is your tap dancing, a useful skill for breaking the credit card blues to the missus.

You can always work on your 'pipes' later...get it?

Well done the Bigfoot!

It must be good if a good pipemaker likes it is all I can say, so I'm eagerly waiting to see pix too!

I still think the best answer to the wives and credit card problem is to introduce the wife to a friendly tobacconist/pipe dealer - best thing I ever did was to take Rho down to Ayr and introduce her to Muriel Whyte at Dallings; they became good friends and phone eachother when my birthday and Christmas is coming up to discuss ideas.

If all else fails however, you can always quietly take a note of how many pairs of shoes and handbags she's got ( tip if the shoes and handbags match serious money was involved! ) and file this away to work into the conversation e.g " I really fancy Brand X super pipe, and it's only £Y, it's a real bargain it only costs X% of the price of a pair of Jimmy Choos!" Works every time!

Happy smoking when the pipe arrives,

Gerry

It was madness for sure.

Rugby, I know you think very highly of your Radice so I thought I better give one a shot, and prices right now are very good.

I feel guilty buying pipes I could basically make, but I still enjoy other peoples' craftsmanship (and prepare for a line of carved "Underwood" ripoffs, boys)....

Sas that Radice is stunning, I can't wait to hear how she smokes. I hope your wife knows how "intimately" you plan on getting to know her! I wonder if this will qualify as an affair? ;)

I've almost bought that Kaywoodie about 10 times. Then when I saw the Radice, I knew that I was gonna order them both. I pretended to dicker about it for about 6 hours, but there was no way I was leaving either of those for any one of you fools.
