Not really a purchase but I had a Bonfiglioli and a Castello that needed new tenons, so I sent them to Dave Walker. Folks from GFO may remember Charles Spencer... years ago he sent me a handful of his "field pipes" given how often I used to break pipes back in the day. Well I got several of those spiffed up and re-stemmed too because they were getting a bit funky.

I probably spent too much refurbing them but I enjoyed the gift and want to keep them in use. Plus I almost lost a Castello in a snowbank while fishing last year and an Ashton almost got swallowed by the river this year, so. Always need a good field pipe.
Charles Spencer field pipes. Have you heard from the old boy lately?

It’s been a great two days at mail call. Today Castello #8 arrived. A Castello Fiammata from @tfdickson. Absolutely gorgeous pipe. I am so happy Ted smoked a couple bowls in it so I don’t have to have that discussion with the guy in the mirror. I can enjoy with zero guilt. It came with a surprise Baccy bomb.

Not to mention the fact that those first few bowls are expensive! I drove the Ferrari off the lot and into your driveway.
