Some really superb pipes. Tons of 'baccys. All kinds of neat stuff. You guys are amazing.


And unless I screwed up and gave the same name to two Secret Santas, someone probably got bombed and thought it was Santa. Laughing And someone got Santa when he thought he got bombed! Laughing Laughing

Entirely possible I screwed up. If so, I will make it right if I can figure it out. Embarassed


By my count I still need to hear from seven BoB's. Some landed today, possibly tomorrow. So check those snow drifts out at the end of the lane closely! I am going to send a few PM's to touch base with some of you. I may have missed a PM or posting. Ho HO HO! santa

Oooooooh, suspenseful--the office at my complex, where all the packages are automatically forwarded, will be closed from tomorrow afternoon until next Wednesday...either I'll get it tomorrow and have an early x-mas present, or have something to look forward to on Boxing Day! Will be mostly offline 'til then anyway with travel and family stuff, so if I'm not on here again before then:

MERRY CHRISTMAS, BROTHERS AND SISTERS!!!!

Gramps - I can't believe that the place packages are sent is to be closed for that long at Christmas. Who runs that place...the Grinch?

Yeah, lets not disparage the green guy too much--I'd like to think even a yuletide reprobate like him would let me pop in to grab a box on the weekend!

The place I rent got taken over by new management recently, and so far I've been a bit less than impressed...but there's still time for an x-mas miracle! Heck, even if I have to wait until Boxing Day, so long as my Secret Santa didn't send a spring-loaded boxing glove I'm pretty much guaranteed to get more than I deserve!

Just got home to find my Secret Santa has dropped off his package. I will reply with a list and pics later tonight or tomorrow.

All I can say is that Santa's generosity is unbelievable. It actually made me blush.

Thank you so much Santa!

More on this later... santa santa santa santa santa

Been meaning to post pics of what Santa left me, but circumstances have not allowed, so I will attempt to justify my MFA by "painting a picture with words."

Inside the package that greeted me on the porch, swaddled snugly as the eponymous Reason for the Season, was a beautiful billiard pipe. The note acknowledged that a glance at the maker's mark would quickly de-secret my Santa, as he had handcrafted the piece just for me!

Besides being a general testament to good pipecraft, Santa very clearly did his research on my particular leanings for briars. The size and proportions are of the old school English marque style, a straight smooth billiard, medium bowl... it's hard to explain, but I've always found Brit billiards to show most clearly their kinship with the pot shape. This gifted pipe does that beautifully.

The stem is also as I like, with a fishtail worthy of the name, and very comfortable in the jaw, of course. My favorite detail lives in the mouthpiece... a sure sign that the maker knows my love of a bold or flamboyant detail: the stem is blue cumberland. It's both loud and subtle and classy for sure.

I trust you assume at this point that the briar smokes like a charm, and are only awaiting confirmation. Well, it does.

Thanks from the heart to Santa. I have gotten a gift from someone who really gets me. Let the same be said of us, and of all of us, and in the words of Tiny Tim, "Dad, why is your creepy boss here for Christmas dinner?"

Doc...BLUE Cumberland! WOW. I hope you paste a bunch of photos of that baby for us to drool over. It sounds amazing.

Here's what Santa brought me:

SG Scotch Cut Mixture Limited Edition (#11/500) 2009 Chicago Pipe Club (100 g)

Iwan Reis Gourmet English Blend (50 g)

MC Frog Morton on the Town (50 g)

C & D Captain Earles Stimulus Package (50 g)

Grand Orientals Classic Samsum (50 g)

VIP Pipe Tobacco (100 g)

(Antique?) Spinnaker International Yactman's Mixture (On the card, Santa stated he did not have the heart to open this tin. I can see why. The tin itself is awesome. Vaccum Sealed with Handy Pocket Pouch inside)

Danbark Pipe - excellent condition. I'm not good at identifying shapes, so if anyone can help me out with this one.






Again, thank you very much to Santa for his generosity. I know I haven't been that good of a little boy this year. I have never tried any of these blends, and I look forward to my first real foray into English blends. I will be using my new pipe for strickly English blends.

Thanks to you too Carlos for setting this up!!

Merry Christmas everyone!! santa rendeer santa rendeer santa rendeer

Excellent S Bombs. I'm pretty sure that pipe shape is called the 'Danish Lollipop'.

Thanks for the quick response BH.

I'm having a hard time finding anything on the web regarding the brand other than it is a sub-brand for Sub-brand of Søren Refbjerg Rasmussen.

It has a 9mm filter, a stamp of an Anchor on the stem, and "Danish Handmade" with a name I can't quite make out.

I look forward to trying this pipe out.
