    Thanks for the tip, Simon.
    You're welcome. Do you find a difference with capstan, as a result?
    Now you can fold & stuff, we'll have to get you on the 'plugs' next!

    This is my last tin of that excellent flake.

    That's a nice looking flake huub, but for me the Sphinx steals the show! That's one classy looking pipe rest.

    Capstan Flake in my favorite fishin' pipe--Stanwell Tivoli.
    I've had this tobacco under a fan to dry for five hours and
    it's still wetter than I like. Sigh.

    Slurping a bowl of freshly made gazpacho. Yum!

    I find that Capstan is far easier to handle fold'n'stuff-wise than say, HH's 'Pure Virginia', but I must confess that I can't taste any difference whether I smoke it as a flake or rub it out. It might be thanks to my withered tastebuds though.
    Actually I was going to ask about plug tobaccos; I trust that I can use my good old Swiss Army knife for cutting it.
    (I have seen that some people have great-looking plug knives for the job).

    Good evening to you all.

    Good Afternoon, My Friends! The humidity got the best of my back and had problems walking, so I ended up laying around. But I did get the other half of my wife's little picture frame glued and I'll glue both halves together later on. I just took advantage of ten minutes of sunshine to dry out the BillyPM-aged SJW and the sugar crystals just glistened in the light. That'll be up next after this bowl of DDF in the Don Carlos, a late afternoon coffee on the side.

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    Hello,

    Tomorrow I'm leaving for a five-day trip to Bilbao/Spain with the nine-pin bowling group. We pay into a pot each month based on our bowling scores, and this time I got enough out of it to pay for my hotel room.

    I suppose I'll find time occasionally to have a look around the forums, and will report back once I've returned home.

    Spain generally has lower tobacco prices than Germany, but from what I have read online, there are few interesting tobaccos to be found, Condor and St. Bruno are most likely where many English tourists stay. So let's see. There's a pipe shop close to the hotel, and I'll have a look around where ever I find another one.

    But to be sure that I'm properly supplied, I've prepared two old 50g tins with tobacco to take along. One holds St Bernard Flake, and the other will be filled with a mix I have made today: G&H Brown Flake Aromatic, a little bit of blending Perique and Latakia, as well as two thick slices of twist cut into pieces. I have sampled the mix in a Peterson Kapruf bulldog an hour ago, which at last gets this post on topic.

    Best wishes, and see you soon
    Markus
