OLD BRIAR - Pipe Smoking on a Budget by Dave Whitney
I enjoyed this book and have read it cover to cover about three times. It is a collection of very interesting articles with all sorts about pipe history. The section I found of most value was about buying old pipes on the internet auction sites and then how to clean and restore them. This was of great interest to me and the author has some great tips about what materials are safe and effective to use on the pipes. I have used his cleaning techniques on my own pipes to great effect. I think the book is good value and certainly has some great history in there as well as practical tips about buying and restoring your old pipe. Highly recommended reading.

For example there is a thing that looks like a steaming mug of coffee. Absolutely no idea what that means. You can hover the mouse over it but it still won't reveal its purpose. Perhaps I should have a tea break? Sometimes you get a really thick bold line at the top of the page, again no idea… Read more

I thought this cover would fall apart but 2 winters on and it is still looking good. Great product and great value.
