I have a pipe that im not too happy with the stem on it im wondering how i should go by adding a bend to it.
Im thinking of dipping it in boiling water and manually bending it to a slight bend...What do you think.
It seems like everyone has a preferred bend due to many factors. I was just wondering what you guys prefer, and what influences why you prefer it.
For me, I like the straight shank, it's simple, and it just seems to balance right. However, it does seem to get in the way while...

I have a Meerschaum that weighs about the same ,but is a full bent. Obviously, it has a...

Look forward to being here for a while.

I am a newbie in all respects. Smoked my first (that I liked anyway) cigar last February, 2005. I was in Zurich on business and went into a shop with a friend who was picking up some ISOMs. I told the proprietor that I didn’t like cigars, and asked him to recommend one that would “get me...
I've been MIA the past week since I've been in Big Bend Texas. It was a great time to hike, canoe and go mountain biking in one of the few isolated parts left in Texas. Had a great time since I love the outdoors and wildlife.
Canoeing the Rio Grande between US and Mexico. Can you see us...
