I am looking to purchase a pair of traditional full size scissors for under $50.00 (I would go a little over if I knew they were good). I currently have a pair of the Xikar MTX, but want a larger more traditional looking pair. Does anyone have any suggestions for some sharp, reliable scissors? I...

That's what this was. A bitchslap - nothing more, nothing less. I kidded Derek about sending me a Camacho Corojo (strong suckers, those) a couple weeks ago, and here's what he sends me:
a Camacho Corojo figurado
a Rocky Patel The Edge Toro Maduro
a Nica Libre 1990 Exclusivo...

This is a follow-up to my review of the maduro version.
To my taste, it's an excellent...
I am at a crossroad. I need a larger humidor, do I go and invest in a Monolith 1200c or do I get a larger humidor with an electronic cigar humidifier. I have close to 800 cigars and need a larger storage unit. Has anyone had any problems with the Monolith, and if so how was the warranty? Is it...
I recently had the chance to sample some Stad Ootmarsum traditional Dutch heerenbaai tobacco that DubintheDam generously sent me from Amsterdam. I purchased a traditional Dutch gouda clay pipe for this tobacco. I thought some of you might find it interesting as this is a very unusual tobacco.
I'm presented with an opportunity this holiday season to end up with a very attractive 100 ct humi but I have been toying around with the idea of a wine cooler and making the conversion. What should I do?
This is a great cigar in the style of Cuban tobacco. I got 2 of these in a sampler pack from C.I. A perfect wrapper that looks like a chocolate sti...

Hey guys, just a curious question:
What is the traditional way to light a cigar back in Cuba? Or before cigars became mainstream?
I would think they use matches but what about before matches were available?
Im talking about preindustrialization era.
These are on sale through next monday for $50 a box on Famous's website.

Ive had other Maxxs before but not anything from the traditional line, but the price definetly seems right. Whats some fellow BOTL feelings towards the Maxx traditionals? Im...
A dark rustic rough looking wrapper on a toro which looks thinner than the 50 ring gauge indicated. The wrapper has a slight oily sheen with a satisfactorily applied cap. Several prominent veings along with a marbelized color exist. The cigar is attractive looking enough. The cap...
I'm going to go Jar and tupperware only from now on.
Really, I'm just sick of the weekly maintenance....there are two very small wood humis I will be keeping up, but that's it.
The large one that works will be sold later on....I suspect I had it overloaded, but really, it was just too much...
A similar blend to those "big daddy" ring guage cigars in the Maxx line the Traditional blend is in normal sizes that will surprise you if the regular Maxx just wasn't your cup of tea. However they blended the more traditional sizes the smoke seems smoother, as rich, and very flavorful. The...

Fenderman brought up the old-timey German Huntsmans pipe in another thread. After all the time I spent in Germany I only ever saw these pipes for sales in tourist joints but thread inquiry got me to thinking.
The design of the pipe looks like it should smoke clean and dry; it also appears to...
This particular tin was an ebay purchase - from the 70's.
The tin showed some wear and I was able to open the can without using a coin - I just pulled it open - immediate concern - but the tin opened with a wonderful aroma and first thing I noticed was that "yellow/brown" coloring of the inner...
