I'm in the process of buying a pipe from Jean, made out of a block of briar which has been drying for 30 years, he says. According to people around here whom I've spoken to, I have no reason to doubt this gentleman,

My question is: How many brothers smoke Jan Pietenpauw pipes and what do you say about them?

No sabe nada, but you've got me interested.  He's got some FINE specimens on his site:

He has been HIGHLY recommended by no other than Charl Goussard! Now, if one pipe maker recommends another, there must be something to it.

Charl is a good friend of mine and won't take me for a ride.

Btw, when I told Charl about the 30 years old block of briar he mentioned to me that he's got a 50 years old block!! Guess who will be getting a pipe made out of that block cheers bounce cheers

Although shamefully I don't own one of Janpietenpauw's pipes I've heard nothing
but good things about them in the past. Not long ago there was a post about them if I
remember correctly. scratch

You're a disgrace, Ron, an absolute disgrace. You should be flogged with a bag of Smoker's Pride Cherry. cherry

That is indeed shameful Ron so I second the flogging and toss in a bag of Mellow for good measure.

Jean makes some beauties. I signed up to be notified when he has new pipes available for purchase.

Well, I received some good and some bad news tonight..........

Good news first...my wife decided to buy me the Jan Pietenpauw as a Christmas present. She has already paid for it via EFT and it should be here on Monday.

Bad news....I must wait until Christmas before I may open the package.

But, I'm waiting for three others pipes, two estates and one new. So I will have enough to keep me busy until then.

It's the good life, man!

Oh and my Escudo which went awol turned up at the customs. I'm going to fetch it tomorrow. It's been sitting there since June due to the postal strike. Another way to put some age on one's tobacco.

I was referring to the 50-year-old briar block. Very Happy Glad to hear about the snuff. What I sampled was wonderful stuff!!

Don't dispose of a drop. When David told me he'd pitched out a tin of High Dry Toast, I nearly cried.

See you in December.

Yes, after I've read your post again, I realised that you were talking about Charl's briar Embarassed

The HDT which David pitched was very old and bland, only good enough for Charl's lawn!
I've still got some in the freezer which I will bring along to our next meeting. I've got some GOOD stuff to share!

Jean du Toit phoned me this morning to tell me that my new Pietenpauw is on it's way, will be here on Monday. What a nice guy! We shared some pipe stories and I got him interested in Pete's Irish Oak.

I promised my wife that I will wait until Christmas and so I will have to wait. A promise is a promise Sad It's gonna be a looooooong wait for me. I'm dying to see the pipe, never mind smoke it.

I guess it will give me enough time to decide which tobacco I'm going to open it with. Any suggestions? (I know what Ron's going to say!)
