    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.

    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

    Everyone deserves to treat themselves now and then, even pipemakers :( Enjoy Sas, and post pictures when you can.

    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.
