That was probably my biggest disappointment upon returning to the pipe in 2009. I wish I'd returned ten years earlier...

I almost missed the boat completely as a smoker. I remember seeing them all the time with pipe smokers in my family when I was a child, but they were on the sharp decline in '02 when I first picked up the hobby.

I had one of those, but I traded it for one of the "Causes anal warts" Firedance Flake tins...

I do think that this may backfire, however. Rather than discouraging smoking, it could lead to collecting the full set of horrors that are available. "I'll trade you a blackened lung for an erectile disfuntion."

Personally, I try to smoke tobaccos that promise fetal deformities and low birth weights. Those I'm happy to risk.
They... have pictures of erectile dysfunction??!?

Re: So sad..

Actually smoking the tobacco would devastate the value of this highly collectable item. I can't afford to find out!

Don't fret; there are plenty of other places and ways to get some.
