Retired teacher...Have been a pipe smoker for abt 50yrs...Smoke mainly Lane limited 1-Q...Looking for a good English or Crossover blend to smoke in the evening which won't be objectionable to my wife...She like the 1-Q, but the English blends that I've tried recently she refers to as burning dirty old socks.

Still have some pipes that I bought 45-50 years ago...Comoy Tradition prince...Savinelli Extra straight apple which was a natural line from Savinelli and is now a dark walnut color...Savinelli De Luxe staight billiard which was another natural line from Savinelli and is also now a deep walnut color...Cragmoor (sub line of Barling) prince...Sasieni 4 dot ruff root dark bent brandy...and others...As you can see my collection is not large but I am very proud of my pipes...They have served me well and I try to take very good care of them.
