Yes, Brothers and Sisters, Harlock bombed the crap out of me!
What did I do (good or bad) to deserve this? I dont' know...

When I got home this evening, a rather suspicious looking (and somewhat heavy) box was on the front porch. scratch




Clearing the area and sending the family down to the bunker before tampering, I slowly went to work on the package.
Once disarmed and opened, I couldn't believe what all was inside of this box! Shocked




Included items:
1 - Very Large Bjarne Freehand Pipe - which looks to be unsmoked.
2 oz. Ebony Gold Maryland pipe tobacco from the Wilshire Store in Santa Monica
1 - pouch of CBW
1 - pouch of CBR
1 - pouch of CBC (Captain Black Cherry)
1 - 50g tin of Dan Tobacco's Milonga
1 - 50g tin of Caramel Rush from the Chicagoland Pipe Collectors Club Series
1 - 50g tin of C&D #306 Mocha
1 - 50g tin of Dan Tobacco's Sweet Vanilla Honeydew
1 - 50g tin of Astley's #66 Cavendish Club
1 - 100g tin of MacBaren's Honey & Chocolate
1 - 100g tin of (Murray) Erinmore Mixture

Plus a very nice hand-written note.



Here are a couple of quick close-ups of the Bjarne Freehand:








I am beyond belief and am at quite a loss for words.
Harlock - I don't know how to begin to thank you for all of this, but rest assured - I will retaliate. Twisted Evil




Rob

P.S. - my daughter enjoyed popping the bubble-wrap as much as I enjoyed the bombing. Laughing

Impressive!

You better alternate what hand holds that pipe or else one arm may get bigger than the other!

Cool pipe! And he certainly did his homework on the the tobacco choices. Well done! The only sad thing is that that nice big Bjarne is going to be tainted forevermore with eaue de Cap'n Crunch Laughing

Thanks, Guys!

That Bjarne compared to my cobs is like comparing a Geo Metro to a Lincoln Navigator - in size and quality!

PD - he couldn't have chosen a better selection of blends.

Monbla - Yes, that is the older Murray blend. cheers

Slide - Alternating hands is a requirement with this baby. Laughing

Dr. T - That was quite a nice surprise!

i.keenum - Yeah, he definitely knocked me down a couple of notches. Very Happy

Zach - Not only is that a gorgeous pipe, it's an incredible smoker.

D&B, Brewdude, and MisterE - That's the largest bomb I've ever been hit with. While it'll take some time to clean up the wreckage, rest assured it is well worth spending the night in the bunker. Cool

Fatman - this is what the Brotherhood is all about. Granted this is not the average 'bombing', but you won't find a better group of people anywhere on the Internet.

Mo - this is much more than I deserve! Shocked

Well, I christened the new Bjarne with a large bowl of Milonga.

I couldn't think of a better blend to smoke in such a wonderful pipe. It smoked as cool as a cucumber, and burned all the way down to a fine white ash (a little over an hour later Shocked ).

Milonga is a fantastic VA Aro blend and it was a perfect match for this pipe.



Harlock - you're gonna pay for this! Twisted Evil

lol!

Chris - all of the blends are keepers.
Giving that pipe a loving home, where it will be enjoyed, is an honor and a privilege, Sir.
