First Briar

Post by AKPreacher » Sat May 19, 2018 4:11 pm

As many of you saw in my intro post there was much discussion about my only pipe being a Cob. From that “discussion” Bloodhound messaged me that he could not bear the thought of me going through life without having experienced the joy of smoking from a briar pipe! So he took it upon himself to gift me one of his!

Thank you so much brother it is a beautiful pipe and I can’t wait to try it out!!!

What a nice pipe and a lovely gesture! You'll find that some of your tobaccos just "work" better in a briar.

Awesome sauce.

That's a good looking pipe. I've had very good experiences with Comoy's.

Enjoy!
