Hello Gentlemen, what Is your watch and knife of choice?

I carry a W.R. Case and Sons Sod Buster Jr. to clean my nails and wear a Citizen Eco-drive BM8180 to keep the time.

Ford would ask all his prospective employees the time and ask them for a knife to clean his nails.

A man is nothing without a knife and a watch.

The whittler's handmade (spring steel hotfitted raw-dog in mahogany), but the Mora's the go-to for work. The watch is nothing fancy, because of the nature of said work, but I quite like that closing axiom, OP.

I have not picked a knife yet. My watch is simple, cheap but does the job. Cost me something like 700 SEK.

True, there are far classier watches out there. But I prefer to not wear something that looks like a radar station from the 60s. Better to look like a dainty dandy and not dissappoint anyone when you are not up to snuff. Because when you are, it will be for the merriment of everyone.

Have you ever sent a letter to someone who influenced you, by sending naturally, a genuine hand-written discourse speaking of your shared interests? Many a historic relationships between gentlemen began this way. I have not as I have not yet been acquainted with such a persons with whom I feel I could have satisfactory discourse for such a candid thing.

I've emailed Richard Stallman several times but never took the time to hunt down his address. A man like that would probably take caution to anyone who discovered his address anyways.

I recently bought some stationary with the hopes of writing to some friends. But alas I forget I have very few. Even fewer who would be willing to write back and forth with me. I'll write to any of you gentlemen as foolhardy as that sounds.

Just bought my first pipe from an antique shop. Looks nice, needs some cleaning though. Did I do good?

Those are a common drugstore brand of pipe.
Nothing really wrong with it, but nothing really great about it either.
The benefit of buying an estate pipe is that you won't have to break it in, but if you enjoy the hobby then make sure you learn the proper method of doing so for a new pipe.

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/03/07(Mon)02:22 No. 3137

dr grabow is just as good as any other pipe - it all really boils down to looks and comfort. remove the stem, they pull off with a gentle twist, and run water through it, then run a cotton swab down it. scrape the caked on ash, but not the char, from the bowl, and there you go.
some people soak their bowls in salt and alcohol, but all that does it clear up musty smells.

and for the love of god, don't buy the big bags of 'pip tobacco' from the shop, as that is cigarette tobacco meant to dodge taxation. a pouch of captain black will do fine for a start, and you will learn to pack your pipe in the right way.

good show.

I do not believe in any supernatural deity. The universe always existed and we are the result of an untold length of random events.

I'm spoiled with good tobacco after I smoked a lot of premium cigars and high quality pipe tobacco. Cigarettes just taste like absolute garbage. Even American Spirit or smokes of that nature taste terrible.

What are some good cigarettes or roll your own tobaccos for the spoiled smoker?

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/04/22(Fri)01:30 No. 3156

just roll the cigarettes with pipe tobacco. It works.

Am wondering about Low-end nicotine cigarettes. None of this e-cig bullshit; I like the light and softness of a real cigarette, but I'm looking to cut down on the nicotine and tar content. --- anyone help me out?

It's not the nicotine in cigarettes you should be worried about.

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/04/01(Fri)08:59 No. 3148

I remember when a classmate took back some smokes from trip in China. That was probably the weakest crap ever - felt like I was smoking nothing.
Camel Blue is big in terms on nicotine. I think, where they are supposed to white how much there is in a pack - they got to be shitting me. Sometimes a pack would last a little more than a week, where any regular Winston pack make do for just a few days.
Individual taste aside, me and my buddy, way back, started smoking those about the same time, and easily escalated to some high octane crap.

I now smoke rolling tobacco, and I would have to say it's probably the best option next to menthols in terms of taste and next to Chinese in terms of nicotine. Tar bar is all over the place, but you can compare different sticks by just looking at what's left at mouth end of it - the blacker the worse.

It keeps the sun off.

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/04/01(Fri)08:50 No. 3147

I stick with a beanie - and here is why:
1)My beanie is tall enough. Enough to put away, let's say, a pack of fine cigarettes, or, maybe a joint.
2)It is made of hood fabric, warms my head and ears during winter, and protects from sun stroke during summer.
3)It was a gift.
4)Beanie never constricts blow flow to the head. Which gives me some time given my bald-after-30 genetic makeup.
5)Generally, it's on point with almost every other outfit, be it jeans and jacket or summer shorts and a tee.

I'd love myself a snow cap with those stringy orb things at the end of each ear flap though, or a neat flannel textured flat cap that meets all the previous statements.
