Pipelines needs you! While on an out-of-state road trip I stopped by a smoke shop and saw a back issue of P&T. What a surprise! I had no idea such a magazine existed, immediately ordered several back issues and love them all. I’ll be subscribing and ordering more back issues soon. I especially like “Trial […]

Accolade Once upon a time, I used to read a lot more than I do these days, ever since family and business matters have taken over my life and stolen my freedom. You know how it goes. In my younger days I was quite the novel-reader, and I took some pride in that. But these […]

Progressive pipers I was shocked in regards to all the negative reaction on the Baron Ambrosia article. I would like to add my full support for the article.

Living in the Inland Empire and being a pipe and cigar smoker, there are limited opportunities to find good pipe and tobacco shops, and you have […]

New online forum I would like to take a moment to interrupt the entire staff of P&T. Yes—I’m talking to you. Stop what you are doing for a minute. OK, paying attention? Good. I have been a reader for years, and P&T was my window into the larger pipe community before I discovered the online […]

Smoking Santas I loved the article about Neil Strong’s smoking Santa Claus collection (“Ho ho ho: 600 pipe-puffing Santas and counting,” P&T Vol. 19, No. 4). Seeing Santa Claus peacefully puffing on his pipe, while he brings joy and gifts to all the children in the world, brings a huge amount of serenity and contentment […]

Is it a Dublin? Is anyone else as bemused, befuddled (and impressed) as I am with the pipes that were submitted to the Greater Kansas City Pipe Club carving contest? I could have sworn that the standard shape chosen this year was the Dublin. As I looked from pipe to pipe I couldn’t believe my […]

Dutch surprise My wife, Paula, and I have just returned from a two-week vacation in Europe. On such trips I always actively seek out pipe shops and, even, pipemakers. In Amsterdam, I really hit the jackpot. A combination of an outstanding pipe museum and pipe shop, the Pijpenkabinet Museum and Smokiana Pipeshop (whose sales support […]
