    For the first time I got an official letter from the customs, with a request to pick up a mysterious package from USA. Kinda scared I went there and was forced to open the package in front of the officers. My eyes sparkled with joy when I saw the content: There was NO tobacco in it!!
    My face: :ngty:
    Officers faces: :cfsd: :msty:
    I had to explain what a ROCK COB is and this was as it were my first oppurtunity to promote the awesome work of John Barrett in Germany!
    I can't describe how happy and grateful I am. Thank you so much Mr. Barrett! You're the man.

    Congrats! They will be the coolest smoking pipes you'll ever own. And they gave the truest flavor of tobacco, too.

    Rekamepip makes them. You should contact him directly. Pipes&Cigars has a few for sale, too, but if you go straight to the source, he'll get all the money himself.

    Dang Simmo man! Whatcha trying to do? Give us a good case of rock cob envy? John does have skills. I enjoy smoking heavy lat blends in mine without the worry of ghosting. It smokes great whatever I put in her. Good score Simmo! Rock on!

    I agree. Pipe stone and meerschaum both smoke leaf differently than briar does. Rock is great.

    :doh: Why the heck haven't I thought of this yet?!

    Glad you got those, Simmo! :thu:

    You're right about the VaPers - just had a bowl of Dan's Ascanian#2 - I thought I know this blend, but I discovered completely new qualities. :th1:

    No, I'm located in Germany and I will do my best to promote his art here in Germany where ROCK COBS are still largely unknown.
