Does anyone own an Old Boy pipe lighter. I'm wondering if it's any good.

Corona, yes very nice. I had a Prometheus XR which is built around the same style. They (both) last forever.

$70.00 for a chrome one. Seems to be the best deal I can find.

Thanks.

I did some searching last year and never came up with that price.

Jump on it!

I've had a Savinelli churchwarden for about 2 years. I typically smoke what I believe is a mild Virginia available at my local shop, Stogies on Grand. It is just called Stogies Blend. Unfortunately, the stem broke off inside the bowl and I have been unable to smoke since. It is a gorgeous pipe and I don't want to throw it out. Can such a thing be repaired? Can I just get a new stem for the bowl I already have?

churchwardens can be a bit tough. Most decent pipe shops will have a number of stems on hand but probably not for a churchwarden and almost certainly not acrylic which I believe your Savinelli is. That being said your local shop can probably order a replacement from Savinelli so all is not lost.

Depending on how much they want for it I may be better off just buying a more reasonable pipe.

Well it might be a smidge late in coming by now, but I had the same problem with a pipe of mine, Pete. Depending on the dimensions of your stem, you might be able to get a replacement from the J. H. Lowe Smoking Pipe Repair Parts co., barring a replacement being available from the manufacturer. Unfortunately for me, I misplaced the damn pipe bowl before I could get the stem ordered.

I don't smoke nor do i plan to, but i must say I love the smell of tobacco from pipes.

My dad used to smoke them and I can still remember the sound of him clamping down on the pipe and the sweet smell.

Totally different from my average second-hand smoking experience of cigarettes and cigars.

Real (not drug store) cigars are not like pipe tobacco, but they're definitely closer to that than to the bland, stale smell of cigarettes.

I found a great tobacconist in Tucson that is the main supplier for all of my pipe tobacco.
It's called 'Tinder Box'. They have a fine selection of pipe tobaccos. My favorites are;
cherry almond and pistachio. Simply divine for a pipeful, nice and sweet aroma too. Though
I can't smoke inside the house, my wife loves the smell of pipe tobacco. And the pistachio
tobacco really compliments the taste of a nice glass of absinthe...

Wow... pistachio! I've never come across that in a pipe tobacco. I have a strong predilection for black cherry liqueur tobacco. As with so many of the comments I've read on here, it reminds me of my dad. What is it with dads and pipes?

Last night a friend and I tamped some “Big Ike” he bought offline; the pipe tobacco dedication to Gen. Eisenhower. Wow, great stuff. Very rich, very bold. A good smoke.

The cherry-almond is a very sweet mild smoke. A great smoke to have when the ladies are
around. The only other pipe tobacco that used to draw the ladies was a mixture I used to get
1 ounce of coco cavendish mixed with 1 ounce french vanilla. It would carry the aroma of fresh-baked
vanilla-flavored brownies around any room I was in.

This past winter the missus got me started with pipes. I'm currently running a Peterson 1/4 bent bulldog, and a Kirsten 'Jewel'.

I'm loving it, but have yet to master packing the things :D

My wife and I are two of the only girls we know personally who smoke pipe's (and I hate having to tell people it's a TOBACCO pipe! Oi.) I've had my eye on a custom Lion head meerschaum for a long time now. Ever since I was of smoking age in Utah. I received my very first pipe on my 19th birthday (smoking age in Utah) from my wife and I've been building a small collection ever since! ^_^

Now that I'm also a fan of coffee, I plan on trying a pipe and coffee in the morning. Though I'd love to have a pipe with a nice glass of Absinthe and see what that's like. I'm also a cigar, cigarillo and hookah smoker. ^_^

Unfortunately, the pipe destroys my palate so I don't pull it out before or during the green hour.
Litany against fear of Absinthe - I must not fear Absinthe. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my Absinthe. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the Absinthe has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I've only just discovered the joys of pipe smoking. I found cigars to be too heavy to enjoy with absinthe, they are much better paired with rum I find, but the pipe is ideal. I've been enjoying some mild  aromatics and cavendish blends which go very nicely with the green hour.
