    My latent grammarian notions want me to pluralize this as "two Countries Gentleman". But that's just weird.

    You may find the first few smokes taste a bit of corn (if the cob was not sufficiently dried - one of mine did), and toward the end of each bowl you'll get a taste of wood as the part of the stem that protrudes into the bowl is slowly burned away. Once that's complete, the Countries Gentleman smoke like a charm.

    Enjoy! And please post pictures of your stem(s) when available.

    Wouldn't it technically be Country Gentlemen?
    You might find that smoke blown out clears your mind of shadows within.

    I used to go with "gentlemen" in the plural, but the more I smoke the CGs the more I consider "gentleman" to be almost adjectival, not to mention complimentary. And any phrase containing a postpositive adjective should take its plural on the noun at its beginning.

    I obviously need more Royal Yacht to kick in the intellectual afterburners.

    Once again thanks for taking the time to reply and the info. I will keep it in mind. As to pics -- I am going to have to buy a camera just for this forum. I still shoot film -- a lot of B&W -- and have my own darkroom. But to participate and be a good BOTL I see the time has come where I am forced to go digital. Sheesch!!!! Who'd a think it?

    I hear you, Michael. I never had any desire for a digital camera until I joined this site!

    Very well. This really brought me back to 5th-8th grade English class!

    It's a model name, with "Country Gentleman" itself being adjectival in nature, so that using it alone to represent the object becomes -- if memory serves, which it frequently does not -- an adjectival noun phrase. Obviously, an apostrophe won't do, so maybe we could take the sheepish way out (one sheep, two sheep) and say six Country Gentleman. The thoroughgoing pedant would dispense with the shorthand altogether and call it six Country Gentleman pipes.

    I think a bowl of RY in the CG would hit this spot right now to start the day.

    more 221b Series Honeydew with my cherry for breakfast again today. This is a very high fat content smoke and perfect for early spring mornings.

    Being a product of Georgia public education in the 80's anything but Six Country Gentlemen just sounds wrong if not pretentious.

    I had me some of that Old Gow-reee in a Savunelleee ya'll.
    So in other words, stop reading reviews and smoke more tobacco?
