    Nah, that was just carryover from another thread - my apologies.

    Robert, feel free to throw us a pic every now and again when you're smoking your older pipes. The earliest I've had experience with dated from only the 1920's, and I'm sure others would also be interested in any 19th century examples you could share.
    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?

    1899 Barling and 1890-ish Ropp Bussang Cherrywood. Smoked both of these today. The Barling is a very regular smoke for me; lovely little pipe. It's my dedicated pipe (at least one of them) for Louisiana Flake. The Cherrywood is getting use with Black Bogie. I appear to have outgrown the tiny Ropp Prince for this tobacco...

    And a fun little oddity from the 1930s, I believe. I posted it recently on a newbie thread where pipe filling was being discussed.

    Thanks, Robert. I do recall seeing the Cherrywood Ropp now and the Barling is a cute little bunny, no?
    But that "filler". Hilarious - who would have thought up such a contraption? Perhaps a man lacking both thumbs?

    The filler actually works rather well. I don't use it as often as I should.

    Interesting, but what in Sam Cro is it?

    Long afternoon of two small errands. Finally settled in with my 'lil Bear in the MM Dip. Think I'll have a Guinness - el Wedo Mark made me thirsty.

    Terry @ProbateGeek , what did you think of the Bow-legged Bear? Why have you chosen the Kendal Dark over KK?

    The patent has probably expired. Somebody should return them to production. Hint @Mari -- the words "Pipe Filler" are engraved on the device.

    Speaking of heavy loads, this Irish Flake seems more than ordinarily potent. Excellent!

    I have not been able to crack the BLB open yet - that's what you get for sending the whole tin, silly.

    While I do love the Kendal Kentucky, I don't recall EVER tasting even a bit of the Lakeland essence, which I now taste regularly with the Kendal Dark. It's not strong, but when you spot it it's obvious. Other than that, they're about the same to me. And Kendal Dark is way cooler of a name - Dark Kendal would have been that much better.

    Louisiana Flake in "Frankenpipe". It's alive!

    Gave a workmate a Ropp Cherrywood Churchwarden and held Pipe Smoking 101 in the car park this afternoon. I brought a selection of tobaccos for him to try and he went for the highly regarded and recommended Peterson Special 2012 Reserve. Can't say I blame him - that stuff is just superb. I gave him a smaller no-name meerschaum-lined bent Billiard to try it in (don't want him to stink up the Ropp before he decides what to smoke in it - and he's got the start of a rotation...) He got through it without a scorched tongue and thoroughly enjoyed his first ever bowl. I'd call that a rare success. He spurned the Ennerdale Flake, however. No accounting for taste.

    Irish Flake. Two days late, but still a lovely blend.

    I'm late!? Well at least I'm started on mine, in a MM Diplomat. But I've smoked some the past few days, too. Does it count, or did I have to register beforehand -- call my shot, so to speak?

    And I've received a writ from Puff Central demanding payment of fines, claiming that I've posted numerous times without mentioning the stem material or style. Well, you can't beat city hall, so I'll just pay up and avoid any more penalties -- a Forever stem, basic black acylic, straight, fantail.

    Hope I wasn't late with this Irish Flake, though.
