Pipe Tools & Supplies - Neerup Shank Brush 5/Bag
Does the job.
These babies really work. They're even better than wire pipe cleaners in cleaning the shank. After you clean the shank of your pipe, follow up with a soft pipe cleaner and you'll be amazed ! Highly recommended.
Sutliff - Creme Brulee
Smooth, Full and Sweet
The Creme Brulee is my second favorite to the Sutliff Vanilla Custard...a close second. The Creme Brulee is very moist upon receipt, which can be easily solved by leaving the zip-lock bag open overnight upon receipt. It gives me a very smooth, plenty of flavor and a great room note. I really like it, especially as an alternate to the Vanilla Custard; which still remains my absolute favorite.
Pipe Tools & Supplies - 8deco Classic Tamper Gold Diamond Cut
Superior design and elegant too!
What can you say about a pipe tamp?.....Plenty! I've been using nail type tamps for years, along with redwood combination tamps. The problem tamps of this type is that they're small and have a flat, solid face. The idea of THIS tamp is its large, concave, open perforated face that allows you to tamp the crown completely, easily and uniformly without snuffing out any portion of the crown. To me, this is the perfect pipe tamp and I highly recommend purchasing one for yourself.
Sutliff - Z92 Vanilla Custard
Smooth and Sweet
I believe this is my favorite of ALL pipe tobaccos that I've tried. It's smooth and sweet; no tongue burn at all. Easy smoking down to the bottom of the bowl. I just ordered 10 more oz.'s this week. You can smoke this tobacco all day long and it always comes through with flavor. Even the room note is great, as my wife thought I was baking a vanilla cake when I first lit up.
