With a great avatar comes great misidentification
Good advice. VAs almost always improve with some time.Generally wise with Virginia in general, but particularly with C&D I understand.
Nice little pipe Dan-O, sand blast looks greatChacom Reverse Calabash. This thing is pretty small, and super light. Think I’m gonna have to cut a longer vinyl bit for it. Will be a good clencher me thinks.
Also got a lb of Match Country Doctor. Don’t know why, but I really like this blend, and I’m usually an English, full bodied fan. View attachment 1196822 View attachment 1196823 View attachment 1196824
Thanks. Having a tasty bowl of Elizabethan Match. Smokes nice and cool. Has a few blems, but the smokeability of it is pretty awesome, so I don’t really give a rats rear. My first rc, so curious to see how it acts (moisture) when I smoke a few bowls back to back.Nice little pipe Dan-O, sand blast looks great
I’ve never tried them, but have heard good things from different people about the Ryujin blend (the dragon one at the bottom of your pic). Enjoy!
That reminds me that I need to restock.Not exactly tobacco or pipe, but very closely related; I finally received my order from Topmylar.com, 100 pint 7mil gusseted ziplock mylar bags. They are usually fast shipping, but these apparently got caught in the USPS logjam. They shipped on the 8th and arrived today - 10 day priority shipping. That's not as bad as a pipe for my son-in-law that was mailed from Cup O' Joe's on the 8th and received at the post office in Queensbury NY, where "Package Acceptance is Pending". I don't hold out much hope for that one, but you never know, they might find it hiding behind a trash bin and get it sent on.
They're STG blends like the Drew Estate and all all the cigar company branded tins. Slight variations on existing blends. Should be solid smokes! They haven't been in production for a few years so should be ready to smoke!
Clear vinyl tubing. I cut off a piece with a sharp knife, then use warm/boiling water to make it permeable and slide it over the stem. Coffee cup half way full of water on the beverage setting usually gets it warm enough. I use a spoon to help get it onto the stem.Interesting softee bits. Never seen the clear ones before. Do tell.
