Latest Pipe-Related Purchase Thread
 
I didn't realize we didn't have one of these.

Be it baccy or a new pipe, or some other pipe related item, post up what you got. Pictures never hurt either


I just placed a modest order from our friends at Pipesandcigars.com

picked up a half-priced 1lb bag of CAO Sweet Vanilla Honeydew

8oz of Anniversary Kake, 8oz of Butternut Burley, and 1 50g tin of Dan Blue Note

:pi can't wait for it to arrive

I am eyeing a Stanwell right now. My mind is telling me know but my body is telling me yes. UGGGHHHHH, maybe tomorrow I'll make a decision.

oh just get it :p

I'm keeping my eye on the boswell site. I talked to them yesterday, and JM is making some pokers in the near future, and I've asked him to approximate one he made a while back. I hope makes, and I get it in time. I need a good poker shape, for not too much coin. His will cost around 100, which is doable, most artisan type pipes are just a bit too much for me to handle

My new Mastro de Paja billiard. She's a sweet smoker!! I have had a few bowls of Hearth & Home's AJ's VaPer in her so far. She might get dedicated to that blend.

Damn it RX you are not a very good influence on me. Ok I bit the bullet and will pay for it later but here is the little Stannie I bought. It just wouldn't leave me alone, it was haunting my dreams. And I picked up an 8 oz. tin of Pease Piccadilly. I'm planning on picking up a fairly big order of tobacco before SCHIP also.

It's stubby at less than 5 inches long.

I love the 191 shape in the Stanwell line too. It'll probably be my next pipe, somewhere down the line. Either that or a Boswell...or me knowing myself, I'll probably get both...

Cool lookin stubby Nick! Haven't ever seen that one before! Do me a favor and be sure to take some pics that show proportions for me when it comes in!!

As for my purchases as of late I had to cut it off after the large bulk order. I got quite a few pipes in rotation now, and a nice stock of tobacco. Plus I find myself coming to a nice balance with pipes and cigars now that the newness has worn of off the pipe slope! Which is nice, I like haveing the choice and variety! Yardwork and working in the garage tends to lend itself more to smoking a big ol stogie for me..

I will definitely post some picks of it in my hand. It's a Stanwell Majestic 191. I think I will really like it, I found myself going back to it and day after day a few times a day; it wouldn't leave me alone!!!!!!

Began my pipe journey today. Ordered 3 cobs; tins of Escudo, FVF, and Westminster (planning on picking up some CH and AP locally); plus some accessories. :pi

My want list was much longer, but I figured this was enough to determine if the pipe is a right fit for me...

Welcome! You picked some VERY good tobaccys for a first timer. While you are judging if it is for you, have patience while you figure out how to light and sip from the pipe.

Even though it is an English, I would recommend starting out trying the Westminster out of those three as FVF is in flake form and the Escudo is in sliced disks, they are a little harder to figure out how to fill the pipe with for someone starting out.
