    Abandoning the 3 pass shave

    I've given up on the three pass. I didn't find any noticable difference between the WTG and the XTG, so I quickly dropped the XTG, and went with two passes, WTG & ATG. But my skin is tough enough that I can do one pass ATG, so I usually do that. Occasionally I'll still do a two pass, but the...

    Help identifying vintage Gillette razor

    1. This is your basic Frankenrazor. Old Type head with a ball-end Tech handle. I think that without the correct handle, there's no way to tell what set the head came from. No collector value, but it's not a bad combination. 2. Sometime in the 1920s for the head, and post-1938 for the handle...

    Pipe before or after breakfast?

    I don't normally eat breakfast, but my preference would be after. It's easier to relax if your stomach isn't growling.

    The last tin you finished

    Spark Plug. It went pretty quick. That's because of its similar smoking qualities to Gaslight. Since St. Patrick's Day, I've been smoking my new Petersons almost exclusively, trying to get them broken in (all at once, so I don't have to try and figure out if any particular one is "done" or not)...

    Brown Leaf Newbie Check-In & General Chat

    When it happened, I was just happy that my pants were in the position they were in, so I didn't get burned. Thinking about it more, I had two butane lighters in that pocket too. It would've been even worse if they had cooked off.

    Brown Leaf Newbie Check-In & General Chat

    I think it would've been ok if there hadn't been anything else in my pocket to hit the button on the lighter. Luckily, I was engaged in a routine activity that requires the pants to not be in normal wearing position, so the fire wasn't right against my leg. I managed to discover it and put it...

    Brown Leaf Newbie Check-In & General Chat

    This lighter is cool and fun to play with.... .... but I'm never putting it in my pocket again. These were brand new jeans, too.

    March 2021 Acquisitions!!

    I don't think so. I don't have any LBF at the moment, but if I remember correctly it's about the same size as Escudo, right? Here's one coin of Escudo. This is definitely not meant for flake, unless it's rubbed out.

    March 2021 Acquisitions!!

    Here are a few more pictures to give a better idea of its size. I've included my favorite Falcon for reference. It's a little dirty, though. This one shows just how short the chamber is. The bowl and base fit together like a Radiator, rather than like a Falcon, so the chamber is only about...

    March 2021 Acquisitions!!

    It's a neat little pipe. Pretty small, though. Even the mini cobs, which everybody says make for a good 5 minute smoke, last me 20 minutes. This Tsuge really is a 5 minute pipe.

    March 2021 Acquisitions!!

    Mail call! Got a Peterson Irish Made Army Prince (406), and aTsuge Capito egg. Not shown is the tin of St. Patrick's Day Reserve that was free with the Pete. The Tsuge is smaller than I expected. It's an interesting little pipe, though. It's got a removable bowl with a unique filter system...

    March 2021 Acquisitions!!

    Got this jägerpfeife today, but after doing some reading, I'm a little wary of smoking it. Apparently these ones were meant for the tourist trade, and the porcelain cracks easy.

    March 2021 Acquisitions!!

    No pictures, but I picked up some pruners at the hardware store the other day. They make short work of ropes, and in a pinch you can use them in the garden.
