Product: Vertigo Briar Pipe Lighter
Flame type: Soft, Angled
This lighter is a "Corona Old Boy" knock off. So instead of $100 it's about $20-25.
So far, it has worked well. Filled mine with Zippo brand butane fuel, and I haven't had any issues with the fuel. The flame adjustment isn't as smooth as it could be, but that doesn't bother me.
It comes with a tamper/pick that slides out of the foot of the lighter, and...
Brand: Mario Grandi
Available only on ebay from seller: Futurepipes
these are all one of kind, supposedly handmade by one maker, and shipped directly from Italy.
Bent egg shape, briar pipe, high glass finish, with a couple small blemishes (nothing that bothers me). The stem fits together tightly, and the bowl is large. Definitely able to pack 1 hour smokes if desired.
Smokes well, slightly difficult to get a pipe cleaner all the way through, due to the bends and angles.
This is a straight stem bulldog shape from Savinelli.
Unfiltered line of unfinished pipes, another affordable, yet quality offering from Savinelli.
Acrylic stem (this one has a rubber bit on the end).
This line will take the oils from your hands and darken over time, or can be finished and stained by the user if desired.
Smokes well (a little hot), and a generous bowl size.
A very affordable tobacco pipe, from one of the very prolific pipe makers of today.
A smooth, matte finish on the Duca Carlo line, in a variety of shapes. This is a 6mm line (can use the balsa system filters, or the included 6mm to 3mm tube to do without filters all together).
These look nice, smoke well, consistent and great classic shapes.

These cutters have blades hardened to a Rockwell C rating of 57, the result is the hardest, sharpest blade you can buy.

Xi cutter blades are made of high quality 440 stainless steel with an HRC of 57.
All Xi cutters are the same ring gauge: they will cut a 54 ring gauge cigar in half. Depending on how...

First of all, there's not an option in the review ratings for "Results", which is where this contraption earns a 10. However, the price is rather high and it doesn't generate the magic bullet cup that all peoples will instantly agree to have been the best they've ever tasted. What it DOES do is turn your Chemex "super clean coffee" device into a "pour-over clean meets french-press grit" coffee maker.
What it is: It's essentially a stainless steel, conical filter with a bunch of rather...
Let's get the obvious out of the way: yes, it's $250. If this is your first interaction with "the Breville tax" well, get used to it. They make nice looking stuff that generally works very well, but fetches more than a few shiny pennies. If the cost turns you away, there are cheaper options out there - but not quite so fancy or perhaps versatile. Let's dig in.

Spoiler: I love this thing. It's produced some of the best coffee I've had in a LONG, long time - in just a month of use. It's also presented some challenges, but none too big.
The Chemex system is more than just a brewer - it's as much about the filters as it is the pot. However, what I'm finding is that the Chemex brewer is actually about more than just the Chemex system. This isn't a review about filters, but suffice it to say that with the Chemex filters, you'll get the cleanest cup...
A few quick design notes - there's 1/2lb hopper up top, which rotates to make coarseness adjustments. At the very coarsest setting, it can vibrate out of the "grinding" mode and into the "removing the hopper" mode, which makes for a fun mess to clean. However, this coarsest setting is too coarse to be useful anyway.
There's a timer on the side that goes up to 30 seconds, which is very loose/easy to turn. It's very easy to lose that elusive "perfect" timer setting. I placed a sticker on...
My first pipe was a Peterson system 314. I knew nothing about pipe smoking other than I wanted to give it a try. So I went to my local tobacconist, they primarily dealt with cigars but they had maybe a dozen bulk tobaccos, an approximately equal number of nice pipes in a glass case, and a smattering of tins. I spent some time handling the pipes and the 314 felt the best in my hand so that is what I got. I picked out some tobacco that smelled pretty and hit the road. I did ask for some...
