    Does anyone know what kind of finish Dr G uses on their pipes? I actually had one bubble up during break in. If I do things right, you will see my solution below. The 1st picture is new after sanding. 2nd is after one week of normal use.

    When smoking any hand rolled cigar I tend to have this innate sense that I'm consuming something of value; as a result I tend to follow through with every smoke. I'm trying to break free from these shackles and just throw the damn dog rockets away. How do you feel?

    I've had a Vauen filter pipe for a few months that I purchased from - one of the poker style pipes where the top is briar mated to an acrylic base where the stem fits into. It's always smoked hot, even with very careful puffing, but not to the point to where I felt like it...

    I am relatively new to pipes, but I have smoked cigars for along time so I understand the learning curve, rituals, and proper procedures involved with fine tobaccos and accessories. My first question has to do with the 'finish' on pipes. My first pipe was a Savinelli Venezia. The finish around...

    Just curious. As the title says, I'm interested in seeing what finish is most popular. Personally, I'm not a big fan of a carved pipe, but I love a sandblasted rusticated pipe. I go back and forth whether the sandblast rusticated or smooth finish is my favorite when dealing with traditional...

    So I recently bought a pipe off of ebay. Supposedly, it is a Big Ben which I understand is a good quality pipe. However, the seller is out of Hong Kong and I got it for $28. Maybe it's counterfeit and maybe it's not. I figured for the price I might as well play around with it. My uncle is quite...

    I've had a couple of cigars lately that were pertty good and smooth through the first 2/3s, but got a little funky towards the end. I know that these are decent cigars (Oliva V, etc) so I'm wondering if there is anything I'm doing while smoking them that may cause this?

    So I just got my Bjarne Houston in today, my first pipe outside of the corn cob I've been smoking for about four months and I'm about ready to smoke it with the McClelland 5100 that came in with it but I'm a little worried. On the inside of the bowl is a matte black finish which has got a few...

    How does a cigar taste? How does a cigar feel? What flavors do you notice? What nuances do you detect? Wood? Leather (what's that)? EARTH (more over, what's THAT)? COCOA (maduros do that, don't they?)? Given the recent influx of new people here; given the influx of less experienced cigar...

    I have a tin of Evening Stroll that I smoke from occasionally, but I have been working on it for over a year, I think. LOL Every time I look in the big box of tins, it is staring back at me. I don't love the stuff, but I don't hate it either. I guess I need to actively work on the last 1/4th of...

    It's mostly sp cedar wit walnut inlays. I really don't want to stain it (stain stinks), but maybe I should just shellac or laquer it. Maybe an oil finish first. I've been woodworking forever, but this is my 1st humi. What did you use??
