About Me:
A quiet introvert who loves a good pipe in the evenings while writing medieval-themed adventure stories.

Books - Pipe Smoking in Middle Earth: The Fellowship of the Smoke Ring 3rd Edition by Mark Irwin
Decent Illustrations of Middle Earth Pipes...
Well, can't say that I disagree with others who were disappointed with this book, however I did find some of the info about the pipes not seen in the LOTR movies interesting.

Tobacco Jars - PocketJar MAX Green
Holds Enough
A great holder for your tobacco when you're on the go. Sure, you could just use a plastic baggie, but you also run the risk of the baggie getting torn or ripped. This easy to pack and carry container allows you to carry a larger amount of tobacco than the previous model.

Tampers & Tools - Rubber Pipe Bits (2 pack)
Protects Well
If you're like me and want to preserve the ends of your pipes from tooth chatter or even compromising the end of their stems altogether, these rubber bits are a must have.

Mixture No. 79 - Mixture No. 79 14oz
Good Evening Smoke
Overall a nice aromatic. I particularly enjoy it in the evening when I'm in the mood for something a little more mild.

Seattle Pipe Club - Gentleman's Rum Vanilla
Not Your Average Vanilla Aromatic
I love vanilla everything, especially aromatic tobacco. I was skeptical getting a tin of this from the mixed reviews I've seen online, but I had to experience it for myself. This is not your average vanilla aromatic. It's like comparing a vanilla ice cream cone from a fast food restaurant to a scoop of rich, vanilla-bean ice cream with rum sauce topping made in house at a high end restaurant. In short, the aged rum barrel, Brazilian tobacco, rare Virginias and black Cavendish are a symphony of flavors and a very enjoyable smoke. Excellent room note too.

Tampers & Tools - Butz-Choquin Tamper Red
Nice tamper, easy to use and certainly has style.

Tampers & Tools - Neerup Table Brush
Worth the price, very effective for easy cleanup.

Tobacco Jars - PocketJar Green
Nice accessory
Not a must have but I really like it to use on short trips and keep my tobacco fresh on the road. Personally, I prefer it than using a zip lock bag.

Cleaners & Cleaning Supplies - Pipemaster Clean and Cure 2oz
A Must Have
Anytime I purchase a used pipe that has not been thoroughly cleaned, or if one of my pipes needs a little more than just using Everclear during daily cleaning, I use Pipe Master's Clean & Cure. Takes the old taste right out of the stock and stem.

Cleaners & Cleaning Supplies - B. J. Long Regular Tapered Pipe Cleaners (100 pack)
Effective Cleaners
I've been using this brand of tapered cleaners for decades and they've never failed to clean my pipes thoroughly after daily use. Highly recommend.

Tampers & Tools - Larry Blackett Fleur-de-lis Pewter Tamper
Fleur de lis tamper
Stable, well balanced, and a delight to use. A beautiful fleur de lis design as well. Very pleased using it.

Lighters - Savinelli Arancia Lighter
Beautiful Lighter
This is an excellent little lighter, with a delightful charm of amber flakes adorning the sides. It lights quickly and effectively, as well as having a unique and gorgeous look to it.

Stands & Pouches - Savinelli Leather Pipe Sleeve Brown
Excellent Sleeve
I use this sleeve everyday to protect my pipe while commuting to work. Helps protect from any scratches or gashes that might occur when traveling. Definitely worth getting if you need to take your pipe with you on your travels from home.

Stands & Pouches - Claudio Albieri Leather Cleaners Holder Black
Not bad
It's an overall good pipe cleaner holder, however there are better ones to consider. If you're looking for something basic and can hold just a few cleaners, this product is for you.

Cleaners & Cleaning Supplies - Paragon Wax 1oz
Shiney Pipes
Put two coats of this on your smooth finish pipes with about a minute or two in between coats and you'll see a significant difference in the shine and polish of your pipes. Highly recommend.

Stands & Pouches - Vauen Wood 3 Pipe Stand
Great Display
I wanted to show off three of my pipes and decided to order this holder. I was not disappointed. My pipes look really sharp on this holder and would highly recommend if/when it is ever available to purchase again.

Cornell & Diehl - Bourbon Bleu 2oz
Good Flavor
A good tobacco for Virginia and perique lovers, but I didn't get that much bourbon flavor from my experience.

Stands & Pouches - Claudio Albieri Smokingpipes Leather Cleaners Holder Black
A Great Pipe Cleaner Holder
I love the smooth leather feel of this pipe cleaner holder. It holds plenty of pipe cleaners for the on the go pipe smoker and is also a perfect companion to the leather smoking pipes pouch.

Stands & Pouches - Claudio Albieri Smokingpipes Leather Accessory Pouch Black
A Great Accessory
The price is worth the quality and usefulness of this leather pouch. Strongly recommend.

Stands & Pouches - Smokingpipes Leather 3 Pipe Bag with Tobacco Pouch Dark Brown
Nice Pouch
This pouch is great when traveling and need your pipe and pipe accessories collected and stored neatly. The only reason why I gave it four out of five stars is because it could use just a little more extra room for storing tobacco. Other than that, I recommend it.

Lighters - S.T. Dupont Hooked Lighter Fueg-O
This is a great lighter, one of my best in my collection. Not only does it light cigars quickly, but with good positioning you can light your pipe without damaging the rim of your bowl. Recommend during those windy days/nights outside.

Stands & Pouches - Abe Herbaugh Amber Magnetic Single Pipe Stand
A Great Pipe Holder
Surprisingly stable and strong, these magnetic stands not only look great, they hold pipes in place perfectly. If you're looking for an alternative to your average pipe stand or pipe rest, this is definitely one to consider.

Tampers & Tools - Rubber Pipe Bits (2 pack)
Perfect pipe accessory
These rubber pipe bits make it easy to hold a pipe in your mouth while driving, doing some light yard work, and they also help to protect any teeth chatter from damaging the end of your pipe stems, allowing stems to remain unscathed and look sharp for the rest of the life of the pipe. Highly recommend.

Tobacco Jars - PocketJar Black
An Easy, Creative Way to Travel With Tobacco
I bought two of these pocket jars and I'm very glad I didn't just buy one. These jars fit perfectly in my jacket's inside pocket and keeps the perfect amount of tobacco without drying it out or spilling any of it. It keeps the tobacco secure under its Mason jar type lid. No more sandwich baggies to hold tobacco on the go for me! Highly recommend for the pipe-smoker on the go.

Sutliff - Christmas Spice
A True Christmas Treat
Usually during the holiday season I like to smoke Cornell and Diehl's We Three Kings, but I wanted to try something new. I'm so happy that I did! This Sutliff Christmas Spice was just the tobacco I was looking for to enjoy during the holidays. It's hints of cinnamon and spice are just enough to give this aromatic smoker the Christmas cheer I was hoping for. Highly recommend and am making this my new Christmas tradition.

Gifts - Smokingpipes Coffee Mug (Black)
My favorite coffee mug
I have had this mug for a few years now and it is still my favorite! It has a good weight to it and keeps my coffee hot for a long time unlike many other mugs I've used. A must have for any pipe smoker who enjoys a hot beverage!
