Jim's Bald Headed Teacher Review
The nutty, toasty, slightly molasses sweet burleys are the stars. The Virginia is lightly grassy sweet. The latakia is a smokey, woodsy minor supporting player that amps up the strength and flavor. The topping is mildly vanilla, and tangy, and tones down the tobacco taste just a little. It reminds me of old time American English blends like Barking Dog, Walnut, and Fox and Hound, with richer flavor, strength and smoothness, and a bolder burley hit, though a little more aromatic. It may need some ...
Coronado
Someone once told me that you don't choose a book to read, it chooses you. I think the same goes for pipes. Very Happy

A week or so ago, I came across this Coronado. It's made in France from Algerian briar and it had a ball type cleaner/stinger in it... I don't know much more than that...

The bowl is huge with an ID of .861" and a depth of 1.47"

After a good scrubbing, sanding, buffing and Carnauba... it came out pretty good I think. Very Happy

Anyhoo... here'tis:

I, regretfully, sold it and this one makes a nice replacement. Very Happy It's not the original but it puts a smile on my face. Very Happy

It's been almost six months or more since I have been able to do or in the mindset to do any refurbs... but I'm back. Very Happy

I had to dig into my war chest and pull all of the e ...
Why did UST sell Grabow to Lane?
I had asked a few questions of TED about the history of Grabow USTobacco and Lane.  We had corresponded a bit through private messages.  He wrote a history and has asked me to post it here.
*************************************************************
UST was really good at making Skoal, Copenhagen, and money. They had, over the years, owned and sold Cadillac Pet Food and Tuckersharp pens and pencils.

Except for an Executive VP at UST, Yannis Stephano, several other of their subs ...
