    I noticed a crack starting on the outside bottom of my Great Dane Spool. Actually it was below the level of the chamber, and was cracked to the hardwood plug. Since I couldn't rule out operator error, the thought of returning it to the eTailer did not enter my mind. So I thought I would try...

    Just curious as to the thoughts of the pipe guys about this. This pipe is only about 10 bowls old & has not been smoked overly hot once. I have only used matches to light it. The only slight abuse it has undergone is I left it outside (undercover roof) for a day after forgetting to bring it...

    So I cracked open my tin of Escudo as I heard so many good things about it. Hate to say it but I was disappointed. No matter how many times I tried it I could not get into it. I know there a lot of Escudo lovers out there, but I won't be one of them. I guess that is why everyone has their...

    I recently purchased a box of CT wrapper Torpedo cigars from a well know mail order house and when they arrived, 9 of the 20 had cracked wrappers at the tapered tip. Is this due to over humidification at the warehouse or is it a quality issue with the manufacturer? The mail order firm said...

    Thankfully they were all corn cobs. I wanted to test this method out to get the gist of things before eventually trying it on a briar. All three had several bad cracks on them. I used regular non-coarse salt with regular Bacardi rum. Completely saturated the salt, leaving the shank empty. Let...

    Had a box of Oliva V Churchills sitting in one of the coolers now for about six months and decided to crack the seal on them tonight. All I can say is....Nice!! So sweet and leathery, just a "touch" of pepper here and there (not much) along with a smooth woody-spicey kick. Not to mention a...

    I enjoy going through antique stores and finding the occasional novelty or hidden treasure. Frequently I find very nice estate pipes selling for $15-$20 that could perhaps use a bit of cleaning but I pass on for one reason: the stems always seem to be cracked. The more I think about this the...

    Last weekend while I was smoking my newish IMP I noticed a hairline crack on the rim of the pipe that extends down the side of the pipe approximately 5mm and all the way through the sidewall. I am worried that as the pipe is smoked the heat will further crack the mineral until it can no longer...

    Well about a week go I purchased a imperfect humidor. I received it on thursday night and opened it up. I noticed the the lid wouldn't close and took a peek. Sure enough the spanish cedar on the lid is cracked, the corner is not connected, and is also chipped. I called cheaphumidors up on friday...

    So I was watching NCIS today, and what does the Secretary of the Navy pull out and light up? A Cohiba. (I believe he cut it with a Xikar too, but that's another topic.) And it got me thinking. Cohibas are quite iconic, enough so that TV shows default to them. I'll preface this question by...

    Hello, I have an old Peterson system pipe that I have (almost) restored. There are several bad cracks in the shank that are bad enough to loosen the nickel band and barley hold a stem. Any recomendations on repairing it? I was thinking of wraping the shank with teflon tape then putting the band...

    I'm having an issue with some Cruz Real Sumatra Robustos. I was given my first one in a Shuckins bomb and really enjoyed it, so I bought a fiver and put them in my Humi about 2 months ago. Humi stays pretty consistent at 68%. Two weeks ago I smoked one and about half way through the outer...

    I recently won a lot of 3 vintage meerchaums off of Ebay, they are practicly antique, but they went cheap about 15$) and I went ahead and purchaced them, one I threw away being ordinary and heavily used and I felt beyond restoration, but the other two are beutifull and intricately carved, but...

    I won this calabash on ebay today. It has two cracks in the bowl. I was wondering how one would go about repairing this? Is it possible or should I not even try? It was only $13, so I don't really mind if it's a goner, but if I can fix it I'd like to try!

    Just wondering what's up with this - I could actually hear the wrapper cracking. I got this out of my humi that is kept at 66 deg. and 60%.

    In this case it is a belicoso/toprpedo shaped vitola and I find they are the most likely to do this, I would presume because the tapered head is wrapped much more tightly then the rest of the cigar and when it swells... "crack" I also see this a lot with perfectos and really any cigar other than...
