Lighters - IM Corona Old Boy Chrome Pinstripe
I have had this lighter for a couple of years with only moderate use. The last 6 months I noticed that it wasn't holding the butane every time that I filled it up. I just dealt with it but after continued frustration I thoroughly examined the lighter. It has developed a leak where the gas comes out to create a flame when sparked. The top hinged part of the lighter, when down, is supposed to seal this area tight. I love the lighter, it's substantial in weight and it's very classy looking, so this is all very disappointing. I will send it off to be repaired for a flat rate of $36.00. In the meantime, my two trusty Zippo pipe lighters are working like a charm!

Cleaners & Cleaning Supplies - Pipe Brush w/Nylon Bristles
Inexpensive Perfection!
These little brushes work great at getting that hard to get to gunk out of your pipe. I'm ordering a few more.

Lighters - IM Corona Old Boy Chrome Pinstripe
Classy and Reliable lighter.
I love this lighter and it has never let me down. It has a big tank for multiple lights before refill and it looks fantastic in the hand. For the money, I think that the Corona Old Boy lighters are one of the best investments a pipe smoker can make.

Books - Still Searching for Pipe Dreams - Rick Newcombe
Classic Rick Newcombe.
A really enjoyable read by a true gentleman of the pipe world. I finished this great book in no time and was left wanting more.

Lane Limited - 1-Q
A classic!
This has been my mainstay for years. No bite and a gentle sweet smoke with a hint of chocolate. Great stuff!!

Ashtrays - Peterson Pipe Ashtray
I love it!!
I love this ashtray. It is a welcome addition to any smoking den, and at 9 inches across, it has a nice size and plenty of heft.

Pipe Accessories - Martin Wess 4 Pipe Bag
Top Quality!
I have had this pipe bag for a couple of years and I love it. Very well made, and offers great protection for your stems.

Tampers & Tools - Tsuge Bamboo Tamper
My favorite tamper
This is a great tamper and just the right size to do a great job of tamping in all of my pipes. It really is a beautiful piece and the price is right.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - Gloredo Pipe Cleaners (75 pack)
Good pipe cleaners but...
Here's the deal, these are decent enough pipe cleaners, but in my opinion, these are not any better than Long's pipe cleaners. They are more expensive than Long's and made in China. I'll stick with Long's that are made in the U.S.A.
