Well my mother decided I didn't have enough pipes Lol. She sent me 9 old estate pipes to fix up. The cream of the batch is a 1936-7 Kaywoodie Super Grain Dublin. Poor thing had a sizable chunk bitten off the stem. The chunk was still there so lots of superglue and sanding later you'd never know anything was wrong with it. Smokes like a dream.

An Everyman stacked billiard by Comoy. Super nice I really don't see why the thought it was a second. Also smokes great.

The others are nice serviceable pipes that date from the 40's-80's and will see plenty of service now that they've been cleaned up and gotten a good dose of loving.

Merry Christmas to me. Of course new pipes need new tobacco. A pound of HH ODF, 4 oz of McC Dark Navy Flake, and of course my beloved Dunhill Royal Yuck, and Dark Flake rounded things out. With a second round of Blackwoods Flake, and Cherry Cream Flake from one of the houses Gawith on the way too I should be set for a bit.

Lol I haven't been able to post any pics since Photobucket kicked the bucket Rande. I've repeatedly tried to get other ones to work on my phone and they just cause all kinds of havoc.

That's a great score all around! A pound of ODF. Man, I'll have to do that just to see what it looks like. Next year though....

Merry Christmas Jim!

I can tell you what it looks like........NO WHERE NEAR ENOUGH! But seriously it comes in a nice dark green box maybe 5x7. Nice long flakes inside, wrapped in gold foiled paper. I had to cut them in half to put them up.

Is the box at least two inches deep?

OW afraid not. Itís one layer of flakes about an inch deep.

BH in theory yes I can post directly however I have never been able to get it to work. I will keep trying though. I tried posting a photo in this post and as you can see it never showed up lol.

WOAH SCHNITZEL Jim, that's a great addition to the stable!

Likewise, that doesn't sound that impressive a box of flake. Still, it's a great smoke....

Ok Rande here are the tobaccos. Including the Dark Flake No 7 from EA Carey that came just before Christmas and the tin of Kramerís English that I forgot about.

OW it never ceases to amaze me how little you get in a pound. Itís worse for flakes and plugs though. I try to keep that in mind but Iím always a little disappointed when I spend that much and it looks like I got so little. One of the all time great smokes in my book so itís worth it. Oh and the two jars on the left are the ODF so.........not too shabby.

Nice lot of pipes you got and a nice haul of tobacco. ODF is one of my favorite blends.
