    Pipes & Tobacco Magazine To End.

    I just spoke with Cliff Nelson, the editor of P&T, and he told me that the Spring issue will be the final issue. Very sad news.

    Is it too delusional to think that someone may have bought several somethings, all in the same line of human pursuit, in order to subvert and/or destroy it all? The term "nicotine issues" sticks to my mind.

    More typical business BULLSHIT !!!!!! Will they refund all the subscribers???? Ihope so, even though there are only four issues a year I think their is more than enough interest in it to keep it running. I had a bad feeling when a new editor took over a short while back. Not to blame him but it seems to have there hands into almost every aspect of the pipe and tobacco business, I think that they make more than enough money to keep the presses turning.

    There was never enough interest in a full color glossy pipe magazine from day one but this was a pet project by a pipe collector that piggybacked on his other tobacco trade publications. I'd best most of the guys here or the thousands on the Facebook pipe groups never heard of P&T, subscribed or if the did they let it lapse years ago.

    I completely disagree with your take on the magazine. Besides being a subscriber my B&M sells out every month and has for quite a long time.
