    • Fantastic! Thank you for posting this. It's fascinating to watch the process at work, and the people behind it.

    • It has the look of a business that was built from the ground up and now has grown to producing a huge variety of blends. Cornell & Diehl was one of the brands I discovered at Smoking Pipes (from a free sample) and have always been able to find something new that matches my tastes in tobacco. It was interesting to learn the lengths of time spent in each press. I never realized that is went through multiple pressings. Very informative!

    • At 3:08 he writes on the tobacco block with a sharpie? Then that same tobacco presumably finds itself in the blends? Well, if I get a bowl with a hint of burnt sharpie ink at least know I'll know why.

    • @IB: he's writing on parchment paper that covers the block during pressing and then is removed before cutting.
