  • @50ft_trad   Very interesting about the last part of the process qualifying an item to adopt a Country of origin.A bloke I knew that worked in a spade making forge in Warrington told me he spent many a happy day rubbing the "Made in Germany"  sticke…
  • Hello @matteob     Its a loss of history and tradition that I fell rather miffed about.    They were so proud of their own traditional methods, and used it to their own advantage many a time in the days when they were allowed to advertise. As I poin…
  • @50ft_trad  Perhaps they are deliberately keeping the lid on their production affairs. We need a spy in the factory.    "The Genuine and Original Kendal Brown"     is it really no longer a product of Kendal, but a scented import ? That would surely…
  • Hello @HoffwellWhen the recent panic buying was on a few months ago I stocked up on 250g tub of CM and 3 tins. I rotate my snuffs a lot, and so with all the other bulk buys I made at the same time I shouldn't have to buy anymore snuff for the next t…
  • The Gawith Hoggarth  website shows 32 snuffs and not a sign of the abysmal tap boxes.   Proper round, vacuum sealed, snap top tins now. The same site shows 20 Samuel Gawith snuffs. Looking at the site of   My Smoking Shop, they have a shed load of v…
  • @basement_shamanI once had the complete reverse,  a bad case of constipation.The doctor asked me if I was taking anything for it.My reply was,   "a flask of tea and a book of crossword puzzles, it helps to pass the time away." :-S
  • Listening to,    wait for it..................   The Massed Pipes of The Tobacco Association. :)) =))
  • Thanks     @basement_shaman     No posts since March 16th. I hope he gets around to contributing a bit here.  
  • Trying to edit this but not managing to get the article from my memory.  Will persevere.
  • @yisraeldov       Do not waste your time emailing Sam Gawith or Gawith Hogarth for any information.   I tried about a year ago and had no replies.  Somebody else on Snuffhouse has also commented on these firms ignoring their potential customers emai…
  • Seems to work  Fine 
  • TEST POST I want to see if apostrophes cause text to cut off. Here goes.      Do not ,     can be abbreviated to don't  .
  • Aireys of Kendal are a tobacconists in the same town as the Gawith Hoggarth and Samuel Gawith snuff mills.I bought a fair bit of snuff in bulk via the internet with him when the recent panic buying set in.He places your order with the factory, and t…
  • A curious thing about snuff and my nose is that I take my  Old Paris inside a nice warm house and get one set of smells from it.When I go outdoors The smells become more intense and differ slightlyIt happens with quite a few snuffs.   Plain tobacco …
  • @crullersGoing from a board to a flexible belt style strop.    Do not buy an expensive belt strop at first,   just get a reasonable modest priced belt strop.   My first ever strop cost an arm and a leg, and once I had a bit of confidence in waggling…
  • @50ft_trad     Two more razors and you will be able to shave like an octopus.      \:D/
  • On a lighter side I must tell you about my Grandfather.Apparently he used to shave with a cut throat as soon as he got out of the bath.One day he was shaving his top lip with an upwards stroke of the cut throat. The blade juddered and he sliced off …
  • I progressed to cut throats in my early twenties and love the ritual of a leisurely close shave.  I have saved a fortune over the years by using these antique razors.  After restoring , honing and stropping an antique cut throat, its a pleasant thou…
  • @matteob Old Paris is a firm favourite of mine now.  The first few times that I tried it I was not very impressed, but like a few other snuffs that I now enjoy, it slowly revealed itself to be an excellent blend. I also wish that I had visited the s…
  • What a coincidence............ VIGO County Museum. The Battle of VIGO, when snuff was looted from the enemy, and became poular with the English. Plus the snuff explosion on the fire ship . Google The Battle of Vigo if you do not know what I am talki…
  • Have you grown a beer belly since then ? If the snuff is not on the lower part of your shirt but on the upper, you may have overdone the gymnasium  exercises on the pectorals.      In that case I would suggest a sports bra. :)) =))
  • An afterthought.I don't even know if there is a legal age for purchasing or using snuff in the UK. We have odd laws with alcohol like  juveniles  cannot purchase it for themselves, and adults can be fined for buying it for them,  but the parents can…
  • @yisraeldov     We complain about living in a  Nanny State,  and that we are wrapped up in a Cotton Wool World, but I do agree that younger people should not be encouraged to smoke, or partake in any other form of tobacco. As to the age when it shou…
  • @b4xter     I just tried it and works fine. I tried that blue icon a few months ago and it would not work for me then.   The picture that I took at the time,  had been taken using the camera setting for printing up to 16 x 20 in prints (16M).  I thi…
  • 1958  hallmarked  silver with a gilded interior.My one and only posh snuff box. The other few are impractical wooden ones.This is small, curved, and fits in the pocket lovely.
  • The post by @Mouse      "Handy if you are out in the woods deer hunting, less likely to get shot while taking a pinch." Reminds me of a hilarious article that I read many years ago here in the UK. Not sure if it was about Canada or USA  but apparent…
  • Nice to see this article on Lundy Foot being revived. @Johnny mentioned about the story being covered by        The New York Mirror 1833. I took this to be the original report on the fire, and assumed this to be the date of the accident. After a qui…
  • @perique   I tried the item number a few times and I cannot find it.  Searched for Slater Bros.etc , still no joy. Is the item number correct ?
  • The only two suppliers of tobacco leaf in the UK look like they have been stymied by the powers that be.The alternative here is to grow your own.    Thankfully seed is still for sale.As there is quite a bit of knowledge here already on making your o…
  • @dan11      Wigan is in Greater Manchester. A transvestite once told me she/he went on a cruise down the Rhine.She told me that she fell overboard.I asked her if she dragged herself up on deck."Oh no" she said, "I just dressed casually." 8-|
