Shalom Factory, Israel
Many of us have and enjoy some great quality, finely crafted pipes which were made in the one and only pipe factory in Israel, the Shalom Factory. But, does anyone have any good images of the old Shalom Factory?  I've looked and am not finding much.  If you do, please post...and don't reduce the size much so that we can see some detail. Thanks.
Broken Pipe - Edward James (Ozark Southpaw)
I met Ed for the first time about 10 years ago. He had just started making his beautiful tampers.
On his workbench was a coffee cup full of twigs from various trees. I asked..
He pulled one out and it was a tamper with a thumbtack stuck in the end.

Today I pulled off a branch from an apple tree while mowing... had a thumbtack, so this is for Ed..

Jim's C&D Burley Flake Reviews.
Occasionally, I have seen some smokers ask about the differences between the four C&D Burley Flake blends, and as I have recently been smoking DF #4, I thought Id post a thread of all four reviews for interested parties.

C&D Burley Flake #1:  
The burleys are bold and rich in flavor, nutty, woody and earthy with a few cocoa and dry notes, and a hint of molasses. The red Virginia is moderately present with earthy and tangy dark fruit almost as a seco ...
Yosemite's Dr. Grabows
I just got my 2nd Grabow....a Viscount #42.. I love the shape and small size... I've steamed out a few dents,cleaned it out with a retort and lots of pipe cleaners...covered the chatter with a bit of shrink tube...I'll fill with a bit of black CA later and clean up and wax the finish a bit later but it looks great to me as is right now....

So I yesterday I spent lunch at a junktique shop I visit every once in awhile. They occasionally have pipes and tins. The fella that owns the place gave me the very first pipe I ever restored. It was a 4 hole Kaywoodie with the shank broke in half. I still have it and it still sees use.

But all that said, on more than one occasion I've just missed some deals by a day or two.

So anyway, yesterday I walk in to say hi. The guy has a box in his hands. I can see an old Velvet tub in the box.. ...

Congrats- but you must have been 10 yrs old when u started.


I was 13. My buddy Steve Parsons, who started me on pipe smoking, had a small still which was brewing his alcohol, and we were checking it about that time. The reason I remember the day is obvious. The reason I know the exact time is because I'm an infamous clock watcher, and when I lit up for the first time, I looked at my watch as I often do, and in this case, to record the m ...
