I’m going to make a change to the program. I have run into a bunch of products that I cannot in good faith review. It might be something as simple as the price is set to high for the products in my opinion, or the product was not something that I would purchase again due to my personal taste preference. I’m also going to scrap the Binary. As you should know by now, If I really like it, It will get a full review.
To make things simple I am transitioning to a simple system. A picture or 2 and a few words about what I really like about the product.
Also, I have been working on something new, that has been taking almost all my free time. Briar Pipe Carving. In the weeks ahead, you can expect to see at least 2 pipes I took from Block (Pre Drilled at this point) to pipe.
The intention is to slowly go from Novice to a respected pipe maker. As pipes become less about learning the craft, I will be making them available here at a reasonable price according to the experts. Prices will reflect me trying to make enough money to get the proper tools and still be able to acquire more materials for making the next pipe. (Hobby blocks are fun, I don’t want to charge outrageous prices for them. Look at the prices of the tools needed to make a pipe from scratch and it will make more sense.)
No, I will not just quit doing reviews, but try Carving a pipe and you will see that it’s not something you can just do in a few minutes. Making something that you might be proud to have in your collection is very time consuming.

And NO, this is not for sale.
