Beautiful pipe! I had to look up mopane wood. It surprised me that it's commonly used in certain instruments, since I'm fairly familiar with a number of tone-woods. Very cool!A Jan Pietenpauw rhodesian made of mopane wood.
That looks like it'll be fun to admire while smoking. Very cool.
It's a classic pipe shape to have. The wide chamber makes it particularly well suited for English based blends. Enjoy!
Unsmoked Sav. 320 estate for $60.00, couldn't pass up even though not the finish I would have chosen if paying full price.
What a classy design for a travel humidor. I would be curious to hear the quality of craftsmanship once you receive it.[...]
Lol I know right? Let me smoke some CB Grape in it later?
I am still highly surprised by how much that blend didn't suck... not that I'd want that ghosting a nice pipe, I suppose. I didn't like that quite that much.. or enough to actually buy a pouch or anything. lol

It looks great, Christopher. Do you intend on actually traveling with it? The excess space in the humidor makes me think that the cigars will rattle around quite a bit. A bit of sanding on the edges of the tray should correct the swelling issues.Erick:
As in the enclosed pics...sitting on our office table, this humidor holds only seven (7), Fonseca Cosacos Cigars (5¼ x 42), w/o the tray. View attachment 1013723
NOTE: I would advise not using the tray all together because if you 'season' the inside of the humidor and tray and place the tray in the humidor...'swelling' of the wood during this process will make the tray unmovable (w/o difficulty).
Or the other hand, if one 'seasons' the tray alone...equally it will not fit in the humidor (w/o some pressure and/or light force thus rendering your humidor a 'total write -off).

Will not hold Churchill’s vertically though (short by at least ½in).
The hydrometer was factory set (I did salt test it…no adjustment needed), and I'm currently using the included plastic [foam] humidifier, by will replace it with a Sm Rh Shield humidifier as soon as it arrives by post.

My early assessment...well made for the price, it's holding up good, looks good (the Mrs. thought it was a book), maintaining 70% humidity (going on (4plus) days before humidifier ‘re-charge’.

I wasn’t going to grab another log but your post has stoked the fire again. Dang.
