    I haven't smoked many PDR cigars so far, but I noticed most of the darker wrappers give off a lot of smoke when resting, a case in point being the Pinar Del Rio Liga Especial Reserva Superior, which sizzles away like a creosote factory after an air raid and gives off a pungent waxy odor as if...

    I have been buying a few estate pipes since I didnt have any pipes to smoke at all. Most of the pipes I bought at first were the 5-10.00 range estate that had years on them. Most were very dull and no shine or gloss to the briar. I almost bought some carnauba wax but than would need a buffing...

    Do you apply the wax to the buffing wheel first or to the pipe then buff? Is there any need to heat the wax up to soften it before you apply it to either the pipe or the buffing wheel? Also will carnuba wax be sufficient to polish/buff a vulcanite stem? I've used the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on...

I am thinking to myself what would be the easiest way to cast this humi? so I decide to find a metal box that has a nice lip for a good seal. well I found one and started to build up...

    i was given an SMS pipe the other day. it looks like a regular pipe shape but it has a bunch of notches in it. It is kind of shinny on the raised parts and but the lower parts are dull. The lack of shine leads me to htink there is not much wax on it. my friend said they noticed it to and they...

    I looked all over for Carnuba wax last weekend. I found a brand called "Lundmark" Amber colored pure carnauba wax in turpentine: anti-slip, easy polishing, hard finish. On the back it says: "more carnauba wax per pound for protection of precious woods-so easy to polish" "the secret is that...

    I finally tracked some down locally, Boy does this stuff really put the shine on. I picked up a Savinelli natural from Frenchy a while back. Stained it and tried all kinds of things to get that new pipe shine, with no luck. The wax done a great job, and easy to use with a buffing wheel on a...

    Okay, A buddy of mine a while ago suggested that I wax seal my cellared mason jars that I don't plan on opening for a long, long time as kind of a "just in case" measure. Haven't done it yet but I'm considering it. My question is, if I do this then how do I mark what's in the jars? Right...

    Anybody use it? I've been letting mine grow for about a month, and it's starting to look a bit wild. Know what's a good brand and type? Where to get it?

    I used to think Paragon Wax was the $hit, that is until I tried Rennaissance! I have been told that Paragon is just Rennaissance re-packaged, but it is not. Lower melting point and a bit easier to work with, but the difference is shine and depth.........HUGE difference! Rennaissance really...

    I tried using the search function with very little results. My question is, is it better to remove both the ribbon and wax papers found in cab sized boxes (such as the various cohiba siglo/robusto's) or to leave them as is for long term storage? The reason I ask, is i'm afraid that the ribbon...

    So, I did some reading on improving my seal of my humidor and read good things about using sail makers wax. So, it just arrived and now I'm wondering exactly how I use it. It is rather solid. I'm assuming I can kind of rub it on, but wondering if anyone has any tips. Thanks
