    Thank you, Simon. It's a coincidence that I go to the post office on the Tuesday when DW is at work or that my pipes always arrives when she's running around in some mountains somewhere. A coincidence. Sort of.

    That's not acrylic?

    As a matter of fact, I think it is.

    Are you sure? TDPS had the exact same pipe, along with many other new old stock Christmas pipes. The stem looked a proper 'Cumberland' to me. Although I don't really know what a proper one is made of. Isn't it vulcanite with something else? I've only got one pipe, with a Cumberland stem. Doesn't feel like acrylic on the teeth.

    Now I'm not so sure anymore. I'm not exactly sure either, what a proper 'Cumberland' stem is made of. I imagined that it was some of vulcanite, but it doesn't smell like vulcanite. I just subjected it to the denture test and it doesn't fell like acrylic at all. It does have that vulcanite feel, i.e. no plastic against plastic.
    The conclusion must be... A genuine 'Cumberland stem.

    I quite concur!
    Hopefully Jesper, they'll take pity on us & tell us what a Cumberland stem actually is!

    We keep our fingers crossed, Simon. Somebody is bound to know.

    You know more than me then, I've never tried the sauce. I've tried the Cumberland sausage though. Tastes like a sausage, but looks like it was made by somebody, who doesn't know how to make sausages. Irish sausages, are my favourite. Nobody makes better sausages than the Irish. Although nobody really knows what they put in them. Lol.

    It's a sauce made from redcurrant jelly, port and finely shredded orange peels. It's served cold and is excellent with ham, gammon and suchlike meats.
    I love sausages, English (with huge helpings of Colman's Horseradish Mustard), German, Polish, Spanish, Danish etc. Just bring them on.
    Irish sausages I have yet to try and maybe it's a good thing that nobody really knows what's in them.
