Pipe-Fi! - Page 3

post #31 of 48
Reading this thread takes me back to my childhood,where in the evenings the smell of my Fathers pipe would fill the house along with a lot of smoke,but passive hysteria was not around in those days.
Even though it was what seems like a long time ago that wonderous aroma still is strong in my mind,if my Father was in a good mood I was allowed to rub the tobacco and fill the pipe for him.I only found out in later years that my Father used to empty it and repack it when I was not around.
Pipe smoking parents are wonderful.

Oh yeah! Really beautifull - but expensive. Those are true artwork.

If I ever got my hands on one of those I would never smoke it I think.

I might even consider selling it at buying a Meier Concerto

What a pleasure to find this thread. I picked up a pipe in college (my thanks to Don at the Tobacco Tavern in State College, PA) and have enjoyed them ever since.

Here's a picture of my current favorite: a Savinelli Tundra. A great smoke for the money!

That picture contains just about everything one need in life
Grados, pipe, tobacco and a MacBook Pro. I could survive for a long time with just that and a blanket - provided I could get a refill of tobacco once in a while

Indeed. I tried to get my Mapletree amp in the photo as well, but I just couldn't get the composition to work.

If I had to, I could live without the amplifier.

Interrested in cutting your own pipes - you can start here:

Anybody fire up the old briar lately (stolen from Ned Flanders)?

 

I've been tempted to pick up the Peterson Holiday 2011 blend for kicks.

A Chicago man? Or Catalog orderer? 

 

I've never been a fan of Captain Black. I absolutely prefer Prince Albert.

i get to chicago occasionally but i catalog order now. driving there with the cost of gas and paying $25 to park lol. last time i went there wabash was under construction and after that i vowed not to go there for a long while haha. i came this close to getting hit by a taxi which of course would have ruined my day. let alone anywhere to park. that whole area baffles me as to the parking situation. of course i suppose parts of la or nyc are even worse. i wish i was able to go to the jewelers mall and such but it is just too hard. last time i went there i hit iwan,fabrielle, and executive essentials to make it worth my while. i guess it has been a while....sorry for rant. in the 60's i lived there. it was a nice quiet neighborhood then(no el) and iwan was on the first floor. there obviously has been a large decline in pipe smokers since then. i wonder why. cigarettes are bound to harm one a lot faster than pipes. that is a medical fact. i guess it just is not cool anymore but being as old as i am i suppose it is retro or whatever.

anyways, they still have amazing pipes. you have to ask though. the really good stuff(cheap or expensive) is not always in the catalog. they remember me from 40 years so they are happy to always go look through the drawers. the autograph i was just smoking was three zeros and i felt like they made a mistake it was so cheap at the time. great place regardless of the parking. perhaps, the place for pipes anymore.

I love my Savinelli's and what have you. I don't smoke them much anymore though. I have a bent churchwarden that smokes super cool but collects moisture too easilly and then my Savinelli Delux Milano Bulldog. The Savinelli was a gift to myself ha.
