You may want to send an email over to Russ Ouellette at Pipes and Cigars, and he may be able to give you an answer...

Fissure, love the rustication on the second/lighter colored pipe. Looks awesome! What a great wife!

The rustication is actually cork. Tom Spanu makes a briar pipe and then attaches cork to it. Was kind of leary about the cork coming loose, but the store owner has been smoking one for years with no issues. Says it smokes very cool in the hand

I really like that top one. The second is not for me, but hopefully she smokes well, and gives you many years of enjoyment.

Today, I just bought my first Dunhill from a private seller. It's not brand new, but sure looks like it. It was too good of a deal to pass up.

After years of the slippery slope with cigars, now I am starting down the same slope with pipes.

That's a nice looking pipe Jerry. Did the previous owner put in alot of smoking hours with it, or was it lightly used?

Thanks Mark! I appreciate the kind comment.

I was told it had only been lightly used and it certainly appears to be the case. It has been well taken care of.

I can't wait to put it to good use.

Picked up 4 oz of a local favorite: No-Bite Burley from Buffalo Tobacco Traders here in GR. A very nice smoke.

Hey all, I recently purchased and received a new Winslow 300. I'll post some pics of it tomorrow.

And yes, if you've followed any of my recent posts, I have a problem...

Default Re: Latest Pipe-Related Purchase Thread

After recently being gifted a little pipe tobacco, I picked up the old habit.
I couldn't find my pipe from years ago ( I swear its somewhere in this house...)
I picked up a little cheapie cob and then....
I bought these...


All three for under $60.00 off of eBay. All unsmoked, new old stock.
The top is a unmarked cob with a filter in the stem??
The middle is a Brigham #329, but the web site shows a smooth finish, mine is older??
The bottom is a Missouri Meerschaum.
I'll use the cobs at work, that way I won't be too upset if they get screwed up.
The Brigham will get burned in as soon as it stops raining...

So how did I do??
