Esoterica Cardiff in a Peterson meerschaum Dublin.
I had an English Blend from my local Pipe shop in a Peterson 312.
Earlier today I enjoyed another bowl of Original Oriental in an MM straight shank Apple with the hardwood plug in the bottom. MM stopped making the Apple during a 2 yr drought around 2002-2003 because the ears of corn simply weren't growing large enough to produce the size cob required. With a better bit the MM Apple is a great casual smoking pipe.
That was when MM started making their line of hardwood Maple pipes again.
Today I managed to get in a nice bicycle ride in even though it was a bit chilly. After the ride I took a nice warm shower. Later I had some Boswell Railroad Station in a Rustic Peterson Mark Twain.
A Dudleigh Hollywood bent Bulldog loaded from an aged tin of Frog Morton in the Celler. This is a neat rusticated pipe I bought when I was in college. I wish the lighting was better.
Had some Boswell Railroad Station in a Ebony Peterson 303.
A Savinelli 8004 EX Canadian. Nothing like a pencil shank Canadian when you have time to sit & relax.
I had some Boswell Titus in a Comoy's Bent Apple.
C&D's Opening Night in a Peterson prince.
Last night it was my Eric Paulson Devil Anse with a faux ivory joint ring, loaded with Balkan Sasieni.
Had some Boswell Borthwoods in a Peterson 312.
Northwoods is a good blend!
Boswell Titus in a Boswell Bent Shot Shell Pipe.
RudyN, I sometimes combine my bike ride with pipe smoking...
Fred Diebel Benchmade Squashed Bulldog.
Boswell's Civil War Minie Ball.
Had some Boswell Northwoods in a Peterson 303. I was always interested in one of the Boswell Minnie Ball Pipe, but never got around to buying one and now I haven't seen one for sale on his website for a long time.
I haven't looked at their site in a while. I don't imagine they are big sellers but I'm sure they could still make one. The dimensions & the bowl are great but the stem could be fitted a little differently. I always remove it carefully & store it removed so as not to wallow out the fit.
The best reproductions of Civil War era carved pipes were made by Randolph Ubben. I've watched for one for yrs but haven't found one. I'm quite sure Ubben no longer makes pipes & may no longer be living. His website is still up last time I looked but hasn't been active in yrs.
Had a Fonseca Cosacos and a Monte #4. Been burning through quite a lot of the 5 years old Fonseca Cosacos. Probably smoked 3 boxes since September.
