    well, that did the trick. Smokes awesome now.

    One thing I didn't expect to find is how little I like the feel of the smooth finish after holding it for 15+ minutes. The wood just kinda lacks the warmth I expected it to have. It feels a bit plastic-y. Perhaps I'd like a sandblast finish better? I donno. I like the looks and it's a great smoker now, but just not sure if I'm completely sold on briars yet.

    When I first started smoking pipes, I couldn't imagine why one would buy a sandblast or rusticated pipe over a smooth one. The more I smoke, though, the more I like rough craggy finished pipes. I still think my smooth pipes look nice, but I prefer the feel in the hand of a nice rough one. Here's one of my current favorites, an estate I got from Marty Pulvers. Fantastic smoker.

    Looks like I'm running around backing up Clifford, but same here. Briar is my favorite material for a pipe, and I love looking at smooth pipes with great grain. However, I have to do that online, because my racks are completely dominated by sandblasts and rusticated. There's something about that rough feel in the hand while smoking that just makes everything right!

    Bought my first pipe today and they threw in some tobacco. Had to go with the xikar lighter because I wasn't giving 180.00 for an old boy at the store.

    So I was having a PAD attack. What I wanted was sold out all over the world at the usual pipe pushers. CI had a Stanwell Trio 207 sandblasted just like I wanted but it made no mention of a filter which I wanted. So I called customer service and after the nice lady researched it got the desired answer, yes it has a filter but you don't need to use it. Great ordered, then got a call from a very apologetic lady at CI needing to match an old address for me with public records to prove I was of age. Kinda weird considering I've bought from CI this year and almost weekly from CBid for the last couple of months. The FDA must have them spooked and considering that the second biggest cigar company in the world owns them they are taking this FDA stuff real serious. Had to go back two addresses but finally got a green light. New pipe, accessories and pipe tabacco inbound plus the free cigars they threw at me for spending $150 and the discount cigars that got me free shipping. I enjoy a good cigar but prefer to smoke my pipe while my girlfriend puffs through the cigars I don't like


    One of the pipe pushers who was out of stock was Charles Traver but he was having a Stanwell Filter sale so somehow and I don't know how it happened a sandblasted 185 Army mount is also inbound

    Yep, they're good pipes...the older ones are better than the new ones. I have 9 of 'em and they're all good smokers and good lookers. My Vikings stack up against my Falcons any day of the week. Now, they are mass market and inexpensive so most have fills and some people don't like the lacquer coat they use on some of the lines. The Royalton and Freehand lines are very nice. Still made in the USA. I like 'em!

    Re: Whats your latest pipe purchase?

    So I finally found a pipe shop in Paris and I got 15 euros in my bday package from my parents. Although the pipe has yet to arrive yet the tobacco has been chosen or rather the tobacco chose me. Tobacco prices are fixed in France so everywhere is the same and expensive at that. I got a tin of davidoff blue mixture. Anyone have any experience with this line of tobaccos?
