    The Fusilier's, Lancer's, & Bengal Slices

    When I first started with a pipe a couple decades ago I really enjoyed Bengal Slices, now getting back into it I've tried Fusilier's Ration and the SToP Bengal Slices but not Lancer's Slices (yet). Curious to hear comparisons. I've only started on the Bengal tin and haven't finished my first...

    Tomorrow I'll be joining my family at the somewhat local casino and I was wondering if any brown leafers smoke their pipe or cigar at the casino.

    Rough spot on Merkur 39c Head

    I picked up a second-hand Merkur 39c and noticed before trying it out that I could feel a rough spot or a snag on the top piece with my finger. I tried my best to take a picture of it with my phone, but all I could get was the white spot where it caught the light in the second scallop from the...
