About Me:
I am an avid pipe and cigar smoker, tobacco blender. I am the official tobacco blender for the Seattle Pipe Club, which I am a charter member. I travel to pipe shows once or twice a year. My favorite pipes are made by Jess Chonowitsch or Nanna Ivarsson. My favorite tobaccos are the ones I blend with McCllend tobaccos.I am retired from the FAA. Other hobbies are HAM radio, and RV'ing.

Dunhill - My Mixture BB1938 50g
not Baby's Bottom
The first tin of this I opened tasted nothing like the Baby's Bottom I have smoked before

Pipe Accessories - Neal Yarm Exotics Jabillo/Paduak/ Cherry 4 Pipe Stand
Great pipe stand
Neal Yarm does a great job on these. I won one at the Seatttle Pipe Club annual dinner auction and it is by far my favorite pipe stand. The magnets are strong enough to hold a pipe in any position you want it. Stem up, stem sideways or stem at any angle in between.A real conversation piece that is both functional and beautiful.

Stands & Pouches - Dunhill Roll Up Pouch Terracotta
Best of the best
I have 2 Dunhill tobacco pouches, and after owning about 10 other pouches. I won't own any other tobacco pouches. These Dunhill pouches have lasted for 5 times as long as any other I have had, and they are still in excellent shape.

Peter Heinrichs - Dark Strong Flake 200g
Blows my mind.
I normaly don't like Dark Fired Kentucky, but this blend has changed my mind. I have had a tin for a few months, and have neglected it due to the Dirk Fired Kentucky. I opened it today and filled a pipe. I am a Vaper smoker and have been smoking the curley for the last month, but it is almost gone. This stuff is as good as any Vaper that I have ever smoked. The tin aroma caused my wife to want to smoke a pipe of it, and she does NOT smoke. She did take a drag from this pipe and she may become a regular pipe smoker, if I can get more of this. It doesn't last long at

Peter Heinrichs - Curly Special 200g
Excellent Tobacco
I think that anyone who likes Escudo will love this tobacco. It is cooler than Escudo, but has the same flavor. The rounds are smaller and can easily be packed whole or rubbed out.

Fribourg & Treyer - Special Brown Flake 50g
Best Virginia Flake
I love Virginia flakes. They are my mainstay. 75% of my smoking is with pressed Virgina flakes. This is, in my mind, the best Virginia flake that I have ever smoked. It has less tongue bite than any Virginia flake I have ever tried. I have been buying and smoking F&T Vintage Flake for many years and thought it was the best. About a month ago I bought a tin of this, and I couldn't put it down. I smoked the whole 50g tin in a day and a half. I can hardly wait for another shipment to the house.

Cornell & Diehl - Bayou Night
Perique at it's finest
This blend is suppose to have 50% perique in the blend. It smokes cool and the taste lingers on my mustache. The nicotine content is high, but I like it. One of my favorite Perique blends.

5100 - Red Cake
