Delta / Top Down One-Quarter View // The shapes resemblance to the traditional Blowfish is broken by two unique elements that I feel work quite well together. Firstly the triangular bowl, which takes is angles for the wood grain and secondly, the wide “cat eye” shank, which highlights birdseye grains all along the underside of this puppy.
Delta / Three-quarter Frontal // This is the third of a new shape I have been playing around with, it’s general profile is guided by the traditional blowfish shape. // Graphic design inspired but all the fresh design work in Melbourne.

Regrann from @cooksfinepipeworks - Peter Stokkebye’s Luxury Navy Flake in a Falcon bowl that’s usually dedicated to floral Lakeland blends to test out a friend’s theory about Falcon ghosting. An unlit puff gave up nothing put VaPer. First light was the same. True light … BAM! THERE IT IS!! FLORAL LAKELAND ESSENCE IN YOU FACE!!! It has calmed down since and is actually quite pleasant and subtle if you dig the floral thing. I’ll see how the rest of the bowl goes, but yeah, Falcon bowls will definitely hold a ghost if the tobacco is sauced enough.

Good Sunday to you all and a very happy Father’s Day to the paternal progenitors in the audience. During the week, I jarred up a fresh restock of Samuel Gawith’s Full Virginia Flake for future enjoyment. Of course, I had to nip a couple of flakes out the batch for quality assurance testing in the Thermofilter beater billiard this afternoon.
Prep is the key to dealing with these moist, British flakes. I’m sure there are a variety of ways to tackle them, but here's my own... I set the flake out whole (or in this case, half) to dry. I like for it to get crispy to the touch and slightly crumbly at the edges, but still be flexible enough to bend a bit without breaking. This can take several hours for a dense flake like FVF. Once it’s where I like it, I square-cut the flake into roughly 2mm pieces. The crispy edges will crumble into an even finer cut that’s perfect to sprinkling along the top for kindling. I let it all dry for another 30-40 minutes before I gravity feed it into the bowl, leaving plenty of room for expansion, and set it alight.
So, that’s my method for getting a consistently good smoke out of FVF and other moist, dense flakes. What’s yours?
Another D&P Pipe Works Spartan. This time, it’s a mid-40s v3 filled with Ash & Ember’s Mango McFly. The v3 differs from the v2 only in the that they are stained and have vulcanite stems (as I mentioned the last time I posted a D&P, the version numbering is my own). Every v2 I’ve seen has been natural with a wood (maple, I believe) stem. I have a v2, but it never gets smoked because the draw is too tight for my taste. So far, a v1 has eluded me.
This morning I’m enjoying some 2007 @cornellanddiehl Three Friars in a Peterson Dublin & London 155 thanks to @gcfink . The passage of eleven years has moved the burley much farther into the background of this blend. It’s really more of a tangy VaPer now. The burley is just providing a little warmth to the flavor and maybe a little “oomph” overall. I like it!
