I have seen an updated version of this thread for 2021. If there is one, I apologize and will make this one disappear.

I’ve been working through my older stuff so this is my first pipe navy purchase of the year.

Jarring up some Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Louisiana Flake I acquired recently. I first tried a sample of this fantastic Vaper about 4 years ago. I've been watching for it to be in stock ever since. I always seem to miss it! Happy to finally have 16 ounces. These three jars will go in the cellar to age for a while and what's left in the bag will go into current rotation.

A buddy of mine expressed interest in learning about pipes as his father used to smoke them. As his birthday is coming up I grabbed him a beginner set, a tin of C&D We Three Kings (1 for me as well), a tin of SPC Plum Pudding Bourbon Barrel Aged (he's a bourbon guy), and a tin of Peterson Irish Whiskey for myself.

Is that made of block meerschaum or some other pressed method? Is there a difference? Looks nice regardless.
This one is block meerschaum. From what I’ve heard, pressed meerschaum is more fragile than block and doesn’t absorb the oils as well so they are very difficult to color. Also, as block you can be sure that it is actually hand carved. With the press method, it can be molded and mass produced.
