    I have a used Pete coming tomorrow, or Tuesday.
    What should I christen it with?
    I might have a sample of that tobacco, so I am looking for recommendations for my first bowls.
    Thanks for the suggestions.:)

    What is the shape and finish? That would definitely affect my choice.

    Its a B-10, its hard to define any b10's accurately because it seems to me that covers a wide spectrum.
    Its this one, I will need to get that silver polished up as well, have to wait and see when its in my hands

    That's a beauty! For some reason the "Green Horn" popped outta my head. Of course if we went with the first thing that popped outta my head, my first son would have been named "Damn!". So proceed with caution, my friend.

    That is a great looking pipe. Nice score, Thuber!

    It screams english blend to me. That is my two cents.

    I have never been drawn to the green Petes, but that one has a really nice look to it. If this is to be an English/Lat pipe, then my vote is Squadron Leader. If this will be a VA or VAPer pipe one of the PS Luxury flakes would get my recommendation.

    I agree with the Squadron Leader. I've got a tin of it I come back to every couple months to see if I like it, and it doesn't do anything for me. I get a little lakeland essence out of it which kills it for me.

    That looks like it ought to have some Luxury Bullseye Flake in it to me.
    Very nice pipe Thuber. I love my green Pete.

    ShawnP has better pics of it posted, but figured I would add my bad ones and the box for chuckles.

    Still haven't tried it yet, must decide after a fine dinner(hot dogs, and canned spaghetti), what to Christen it with from my generous samples from MikeinMaine:)
