I occasionally smoke a good cigar, but more often than not I smoke a hookah. I began smoking with a traditional pipe, like the one my great-grandfather smoked when I was a child. I'm a fan…Continue

I would think anything that survives the toe of a used Persian slipper would be fairly robust...probably some sort of flake rather than shag.
I'm sure this subject has been addressed before, but what kind of tobacco would you good gentlemen suggest to be similar to that smoked by the great Consultant Detective, Sherlock Holmes?
Picked up a rather nice old meershcaum at a flea market, with a bowl carved into a kind of rounded corn-cob pattern and a beautiful tortoiseshell stem. The stem fitting was a very delicate screw-in type which unfortunately I managed to snap during cleaning. The stump, however, is still a nice, firm fit in the tenon, and a little beeswax has made it good as new. I'm trying some MacBaron Cherry Flake in it as we speak. I've had it about a year, so most of the moisture and goo has gone, and it's smoking nice and cool, with no bubbling. Smells fantastic and rich, but the taste is actually very subtle for such a heavy casing. Coarse cut, with a lot of wood chunks in it, hard to pack and light. 8/10.
Well, I for one have finished re-stemming a pipe. I found three replacement stems at an antique store (unused, of course), and have made threee of different sizes....one for the field, one for the chair (almost as long as a Churchwarden), and one in between about 7 inches in length.Since the pipe had a military-type socket, the work was relatively easy.Since the stems came straight, I heated them up to bend, using a strong hair dryer.
It seems that we have all fallen asleep! What has become of our vigor?
Well now...If you for one are interested in rinsing out your mustache with something non-alcoholic (it does happen a times), I have found a wonderful listing of tea rooms and other tea vendors around the United States...perhaps other countries, I've been a bit lazy to do a deep search.http://greattearoomsofamerica.com/default.aspThis allows you to search for a tea supplier in your general area, I have found it to be VERY useful.Cheers!
I'm all for lunting, myself....yes, an obscure word meaning 'to walk and smoke a pipe'.Apparently of Scottish derivation.
A pipe tobacco blend known as TK-6 which was distributed by Lane Ltd was discontinued due to issues at Lane and their acquisition by another company. The good news is that TK-6 is now available again through a different distributor - hopefully your local tobacconist can locate it.
