Apple pipes come in different forms, including Squat Tomato, Prince, Hawkbill, Egg, Diplomat, Ball/Tomato, and Author.

Billiard Pipe These are inarguably the most available pipes. They come with a smooth design. The bowl's height and the shank's length are usually the same.

Stubby, pot, panel, oval, Hungarian, Chimney, and Brandy are typical billiard pipe variants you can explore.

Bulldog Pipe These pipes are widely known. Pipes within this family share some standard features and unique attributes as well.

Some bulldog pipes come with a forward-leaning bowl – either straight or bent. Usually, bulldogs pipes feature a tempered stem with a diamond shank, which suits for a good draw.

Why You Should Consider Buying Bulk Tobacco

While the prices of pipe tobaccos on Smoker's Outlet Online are known to be relatively inexpensive, we still offer our customers various opportunities to save costs.

We strive to make life easier for our customers by giving them access to our best brands at no cutthroat prices and in different quantities that puts every socioeconomic class into consideration.

At Smoker's Outlet Online, our products come in various packaging materials; bags, cans, and pouches of different sizes. If you're looking at short term use or just purchasing to test the brand, blend, or flavor, or you're not loaded financially, you can go ahead and buy in smaller quantities. If you're looking to save money and have the financial capacity to pull it off, you'd be getting a better deal by buying in bulk.

In this article, we will discuss the benefits inherent in purchasing your pipe tobacco from us in bulk, rather than in smaller quantities.

Saving Money Buying in bulk saves you a pretty good amount than buying in smaller quantities. For instance, in purchasing the Good Stuff tobacco 5lb, you’re likely to spend less than you would buying the 1lb. variant in 5 places.

Besides, you get to spend less on shipping costs if you buy in bulk. If you buy in small quantities, you get to pay shipping fees on every order delivered to you, and if you're the type that places an order every time, that could run into a pretty good amount. So why not just buy at once and keep?

Gets You Qualified for Discounts How does it feel to enter a store, as a customer, and learn you'll be paying less for a much loved but rather expensive product courtesy of a discount? Feels good, eh? We understand this, and that's why we make efforts to provide cuts where and when necessary.

We offer discounts on bulk purchases. When you buy up to a certain amount, you get to enjoy various bonuses, which will reduce the financial burden.

Never Running Out of Your Favorite Product It's no news, and it certainly isn't a big deal that stores do run out of products due to the high demand for them. Our store isn't immune to this phenomenon. Many brands like golden leaf pipe tobacco, Good Stuff, and others enjoy high patronage. But the good thing is we make efforts to restock as quickly as possible to continue servicing your needs.

However, we understand your need to ‘keep going'; that's why we recommend bulk purchases, so you never run out of your favorite pipe tobacco.

Enjoying Customer Loyalty Rewards Making bulk purchases allow you to enjoy our various customer loyalty rewards, e.g., reward points, coupons, prizes, etc. which qualify you for sales discount. For instance, shopping with the Good stuff tobacco coupons gives you the chance to buy Good Stuff pipe tobacco at a discount.

Conclusion There's no limit to how far Smoker's Outlet Online will ensure our customers get the best. Your satisfaction is our priority. Bulk purchase is the way to go if you want to save money, and the points above confirm that. Join us today.

Completed Series / Authors

 

As I just finished the last book of Josephine Tey's Inspector Grant series (and have also read both of her nonseries mysteries, Brat Farrar and Miss Pym Disposes), it occurred to me that there is a third "series reading" master post I should keep, in addition to the First in Series and Ongoing Series posts that I created a while ago, as inspired by Moonlight Reader; namely, one to collect all my completed reading. So this post collects everything from books / series recently finished to those that I read a long time ago in a galaxy much further away than I care to think about: in the latter case, if fiction, I can't guarantee that I remember much about the plot or the characters (which just might mean that it's time for a reread, but that's a different matter); if nonfiction, whatever I remember of their contents has long merged into the general muddle of information about our world, past and present, that has passed through my brain over the years, mostly without taking permanent residence and definitely without me still being able to pinpoint any specific source. But so help me, I did read all of these -- some only once, some have become favorite comfort reads.

 

I'll only be collecting completed series or other similarly definable groups of books here (e.g., "all novels / short stories by ..."); beginning with actually completed books and concluding with a section listing the series I have abandoned.  This is not intended as a master post listing all of my completed reading.

These Tips Will Help You Keep Your Tobacco Pipe in Top Shape

Your pipe is a critical factor in smoking, so it's only natural that you would want to take care of it. Keeping it in perfect condition ensures that you enjoy your smokes as manufacturers intended; satisfying, smooth, and with a rich taste. This write-up contains a brief history of tobacco pipes and enlightens you on how to care for one.

History of the Pipe You can trace the act of pipe smoking as far as 500 BC Europe, as civilizations smoked herbs and campfire fumes. It wasn't until the 16th century did American-Indians puff on tobacco using the famous calumet. Then, many saw smoking as it's with today's society, a rite of passage into adulthood.

The high respect for tobacco is evident in the fantastic craftsmanship that past societies put in their design of pipes and accessories. A tradition we still get to witness in modern-day tobacco products, such as the elegant design in one of Smoker's Outlet best sellers Zen Tubes 250 ct. Blue King.

Tips to Keeping Your Pipe in Top Shape · Cleaning Employ quality pipe reamers, shank scrapers, and other pipe tools when cleaning your pipes. And deep clean only when necessary.

· Remove Tobacco Avoid leaving tobacco in your pipe when it's not in use. If you aren't looking to smoke in less than 20 minutes, remove all residue.

· Avoid Containers and Bags A common mistake most people make is leaving their pipes in compartments. They feel leaving it in the open could damage or wear it out. This belief is wrong, as keeping your tobacco pipe in containers could lead to a smelly pipe.

· Avoid Direct Sunlight and Heat It would help if you also didn't leave pipes in direct sunlight. Please place them in racks instead, as manufacturers design these accessories to provide maximum aeration and durability for your pipes. If you practiced the habit of keeping your smoking tools in containers, or sense an unpleasant odor, perform a deep clean using cleaners soaked in alcohol.

· Use Your Palms Try not to hammer your tobacco pipe on hard surfaces during cleaning, use the palm of your hand instead.

· Rotate Your Pipes Ideally, you have more than one pipe. Don't re-smoke one that's still hot or used less than two hours ago. Keeping at least two pipes helps you avoid this scenario without your having to put a pen in your pleasure time.

Final Thoughts Remember, getting the best smoke means having a quality pipe and tobacco, smoking one without the other limits the extent of your pleasure. Smoker's Outlet knows this and provides customers with a one-stop solution to get only the most exceptional quality. Buy premium products such as the Gambler Pipe Tobacco 1 lb Regular or the Golden Harvest Pipe Tobacco 1 lb Robust.
