    1962 Dunhill pipe [​IMG]
    Gorgeous. I want to get a straight pipe like that, but am concerned about jaw fatigue from holding the dammed thing, as well as getting smoke that's too hot. How's it working out for you so far? I picked up a cheaper briar and a Missouri Meerschaum corncob over Christmas. I'll have to get pics of up those eventually.

    Just get one of those rubber bits you put on the end of the stem and you won't get fatigue. I get no more hot smoke from straight pipes than I do from bent ones.

    Here is a serious question. I want an umbrella with a concealed sword, preferably one which can be quickly removed from umbrella (with a click or somesuch). Do these actually exist? I'd like something which looks and works great as an umbrella, antique if possible, but if it's new something of the quality close to a brigg. Where on earth would one find such a genuine article? I want the sword to be real. Oh, and it can't be too expensive, but I reckon I'll have to throw that "want" out of the window". I live in London if that's any help. SERIOUS QUESTION!!! edit: being in the UK a UK source is ideal, I don't know the deal with importing knives and the like

    Really?

    I can buy a fully functional regular sword?

    I need this item. An item capable of keeping the rain off a lady's head and yet also usable for gouging out any would be assailant's eyes ready for the barbecue surely embodies gentlemanly behaviour more than a pocket square.

    Thought there might be a kooky antique dealer in London that had them?

    Mac Baren's Plumcake? Nice choice.

    You know, I don't bite down on it and hold it in my hand, so no fatigue from holding it. If anything, the straight pipes smoke dryer than the bent ones. If you buy a good one, they don't get too hot, although none would be as cool as a church warden pipe. Here is a guy who really know his stuff and sells a ton of estate pipes on eBay, which is really the way to go unless you want to pay a TON for a brand new pipe.

    No idea. My mother-in-law got it for me for my birthday last year.

    My grandfather carries a wooden cane he's had for many years. About 22 years ago or so, while walking the streets of Moscow, where he grew up and lived a large majority of his life (with breaks for commanding a tank brigade in WW2 and some photography projects), he was approached by a young fellow who, out of the blue and for no reason whatsoever called him a kike. Being a Jew, and fighting for the lives of fellow Jews during WW2, my grandfather - without hesitation - pummeled the much younger hoodlum with his cane, fracturing both the assailant's arm/shoulder and his cane.

    He still uses the cane today.

    After Richard Lawrence unsuccessfully tried to shoot Andrew Jackson, our seventh president supposedly whaled on the would-be assassin with his cane such that Jackson's aides had to restrain him forcibly. Not that I can blame him.

    It would be legal to buy one if it were an antique. The price would be thousands of pounds. Not much use, however, as if you did use it on a 'would be assailant' then you'd also be off to jail for carrying a concealed fixed blade. The judge would throw the book at you, no doubt.
