    Nice pipe KW.
    Today I grabbed one of my early pipes. 1995 Stanwell Freehand #63 Antique loaded with Salty Dogs (thanks again Kent).

    Asked wife what she wanted for mother’s day. She asked about budget, and I said I would leave that up to her. Casually brought up a father’s day present being a pipe. She said I have enough. This is going to take a little work.

    I really thought this pipe was dead. Seems the wood had a fault so there was a bit of burning off of chunks inside the bowl. They made for a tasty smoke I really didn't realize was happening at the time. It is still one of my favourites. Tonight a bit of Haunted Bookshop.

    She’ll come around. She can’t resist my charm. :)
     
  7. Haunted bookshop in my dagner cob.

    Missouri meerschaum is a great company with great service. When I received the poker cob I noticed the stem was very tight to the shank. So tight I could barely move it. I thought I was going to have to use some pliers the first time lol. Once I got it out I used some sandpaper to slightly open the shank to make it easier to use.

    Despite my fix after 3 or 4 bowls I noticed 3 cracks in the wood running lengthwise on the shank. I messaged MM the other day in regards to the issues. Got a reply yesterday. They apologized for the issue and are sending another pipe! Also gave some suggestions of how to fix the cracked one so it can still be used lol. Truly excellent service.

    I just realized that we're almost halfway through Morta May, and I haven't smoked a single bowl in a morta yet. So, starting off with my first ever commission, a Mark Tinsky from 2013. HOTW gets the call...

    I, too, must remedy that situation.

    How are you liking it, Mike? Think I am going to bust mine out today and join the Morta club.

    Excellent smoke. Very comfortable in the hand and easy to clench. Latakia on the other hand is still a hurdle.

    I didn’t notice before, but I like how all those lines on the stem converge on the center near the end.
