Tampers & Tools - Brigham Red Pipe Tool with Oval Foot
Useful tools but needs a redesign
This would have been a nice tool, if not for some glaring flaws in the design. First, the tamper foot is absurdly small - enough that it's actually easier to use a cheaper pipe nail than this jtool. Second, it was very poorly attached. I'm not sure they even bothered to solder it to the tool, because the foot fell off while I was tamping my pipe. Finally, both the pick and the scraper seem to be loosely attached. I'm not sure if this was a tool that got past quality control, or if it was just bad design, but either way, while the idea is good, the execution was terrible.

My New Favorite Tin
Mississippi Mud used to be my favorite C&D blend. Then I tried all their eldritch blends, and found this one. Now, my only complaint is that it doesn't come in larger tins. The aging of this cake, combined with the tobaccos used, produces a fragrant, flavorful mixture that beats any other blend I have tried.

Pure English Goodness
I tried this originally because I'm a fan of Mississippi Mud, and I was sold with my first bowl. It has a good rich flavor, without any artificial or sugary burn, and is fills the room with a good, old-fashioned scent that even my non-smoking wife enjoys.
