I really like the idea of a Falcon. I've never owned or smoked one but have always been intrigued...
This.
They're kind of life-changing, believe it or not. One match lights, burned tobacco to the last shred, wipe them out with a tissue and reload.

I love mine.

For those of us who are being impacted financially by the quarantine and don't think they can participate, there's a great opportunity for those of us who are doing okay to show brotherly love and donate. That's my favorite part of the CPS POY.
Good question. I'm not familiar enough with them but I'd bet they can be laser etched like last years.
LASER beams on highly reflective surfaces can be dangerous. Coherent light -- it's dangerous to be all aligned in the same fashion even in relatively small power groups.
We also used to think laser beams mounted on sharks was a generally bad idea until Austin Powers. Just sayin'. :D
Fair enough -- so long as an appropriate Safety Plan has been approved.

There are many terrible attributes of the lowly cob. Not the least of them is that it makes you look like a doof.

I almost bought a "golf pipe" like that once. I'd totally buy that. People stare anyway, you know? Give em a reason.

Did you buy it from me? I sold a Falcon set some years ago. It was pretty cool, but I think it was black...but I can't remember exactly.

Maybe it was you. It's an older made in England Falcon with black bowls. Great smoker.

My and Hugo's girls will be fulfilling custom requests, for a reasonable upcharge. Expect colored Sharpie magic.
