    I don't have much experience with a pipe going out, otherwise I would try to be more helpful.. My pipes do a great job staying lit, and I only let them go out when I feel that they are getting a little too warm. I also don't pack it SUPER tight, it's more of a couple of gentle tamps while packing..

    I just think it works best for me, but I fill the bowl about halfway, and tamp it lightly, then fill it all the way and tamp it ever-so-slightly harder, then fill to the top again and tamp down slightly harder still, and you should have a little bit of room between the tobacco and the rim of the pipe. Doesn't seem to go out on me, and it works for me, maybe it's worth a shot for another newbie piper?

I definitely enjoyed it. I did have to relight several times and I got a little "gurgling" at the endbut I think that's my noobness. Thoroughly enjoyed it though.

    I already had a SCdlH Principe (CC) dry boxed for smoking so I fired that up after the pipe. Wow - big, big difference in pipe tobacco and Cigars. Youse Guys have started me down ANOTHER slippery slope!!! LOL.

    PS - my wife sees me packing the pipe last night on the patio and opens the sliding door and in a very condescending voice says: "So now your going to start smoking Pipes too!!" My exact words were: "Why Yes... Yes I am going to start smoking pipes now." A disgusted look, shake of the head and slam of the door followed = LOL, LMAO, ROTF LMAO!!

    I ain't ! I'm just a little large for my size!

    You definitely went from one end of the spectrum to the other when you left the Sugar Barrel for the Principe. That's the way I do it too, although usually on the weekends as I poke around the house. Usually a nice bowl from my pipe, then a nice big stogie, and if I'm still standing after that I take a little dry snuff up the snozz to clear my head...

    That's what I forgot in your package, Nasal Snuff! Your wife would be very pleased at that point.

    Maybe try the Billy Budd next, it has some cigar leaf and latakia in it, so much more robust flavors. But definitely let it dry out first (in fact all afternoon would be ok). Pack a touch tighter than you did with the sugar barrel.

    Although I didn't have a chance to smoke it last night, that was about the same conversation and reaction my wife had as I unwrapped the bomb from Tashaz.

    These bombs actually set a precedent to explain future purchases to your wife as simply gifts from the brotherhood. It's devious, I know, but it can keep the marriage happy and the cellar and humidor full.

    My wife doesn't like my pipe/cigar hobby at all. I'm still tying to get my wife to let me smoke aromatics inside. Not sure that will every happen though. Had to go outside and smoke in my car last night with the engine running. It has been cold as balls here lately, LOL.

    There should probably be at least one more bomb landing this week! Can't wait to see it!

    Yeah, mine. I'm still hoping it hits today. Damn bomber pilot must have taken a wrong turn at Albuquerque.

    First, there was this. Pretty unassuming package, if you ask me. The Canadian maple leafs meant I didn't need to look at the return address to see who sent it.



    And BOOM!



    This pipe is actually the bomb that keeps on bombing (in that every time I sit it down, there'll be a small explosion from the sheer size of it).



    Seriously, this thing actually makes me looks small... Actually, Hekthor, you should market this as a diet aid!



    At first glance, the stain is beautiful, the finish combines smooth and rusticated very effectively, and the engineering is spot on. You even got the full wide eyes and slack jaw look of dumbfoundedness from my daughter when she saw it. I promise a full review of this beauty after I get a few bowls through her. Now, what to smoke, what to smoke?

    I'm glad it arrived! It was never meant as a clencher.
