The Gentleman’s Pipe
It’s a time-honored rule: If you take a sufficiently refined approach to your vices, they stop being vices. (See also: scotch and dueling gloves.) So naturally, we’re always game for a well-made pipe.
Blackbird has put together a pretty good set, including this one carved from a soapstone-y mineral called meerschaum. Even with the carrying case, it’s pretty darn country. But if you’ve already taken the leap into pipe tobacco, we have to assume you’re ready for it.
