Having a buddy at the range who smokes a pipe has got me smoking a day or two a week. I don’t think that’s going to hurt anything.

I shared a couple of bowls of the 35 year old Presbyterian with him (it’s just about gone), and some SG Best Brown Flake. He’d not smoked either, and he loved them.

I smoked my Stanwell Sterling 109 - an author-like Stanwell shape. I’ve had several of these and no two of them were shaped quite the same, which is very strange for a factory pipe from Stanwell.


When it was new:

Here’s Stanwell’s photo of one looking much more author-like:

I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

2015 in a Bari canadian. This stuff smokes very differently in different pipes. In the Bari it seems earthier, reminding me a lot of ODF.

I am nursing some Gawith Brown Irish X in the Comoy's Extroadinaire. This is the only pipe I own that handles this blend with any sort of reliability. The blend leaves the room with a delightful earthy aroma that would turn the stomach of any anti out there. I love it and interestingly so does my oldest son. He wanders in here sometimes after I've had a bowl.

I'm smoking my usual diverse blend, if I change it up soon I'll let others know.

I might try something drier and less tangy.

I was just thinking if we have ever seen Craft post what she is smoking and here you are.

I am smoking my 2nd bowl of Gawith, Hoggarth, & Co Brown Flake (unscented) in a large bent Lindstrom Billiard.

It’s coloring up very nicely after a few years.
