Thee Sherlock Holmes Traditional Pipe

Without in any way detracting from some of the modern eye catching designs to be seen today in pipes, many would argue that the traditional Sherlock Holmes pipe is the only true pipe that a serious smoker would wish to be seen with.

Sherlock PipeWe can all interpret what we consider to be the “true” Sherlock, but there are several variations on the one seen in picture books and on film and television. What never varies in the models which can be seen at our web pages is that in the six pipes shown practically all have the traditional bent stem, which is made in easy clean hygienic plastic, and the “business” end is crafted from traditional highly polished wood.

Pipe smoking has been a tradition in this and many other countries since The Spanish first introduced the pleasures associated with it from around 1559, although British School history would have us believe that it was Sir Walter Raleigh, he did in fact smoke a pipe and for certain introduce potatoes! However we know that tobacco had long been in use in Mexico and the Americas going back in time.

Looking through our web pages you can see the six styles of Sherlock Pipes all of which are priced at £19.99, but if you cannot decide which style you prefer, you can take advantage of our special of a “mix and match” selection of two pipes of your choice for £29.99, a saving to you of just a shade over £10.00, grab a couple and enjoy a relaxing smoke with this traditional and comfortable to use pipe.

Cleaning after use is easy as the Sherlock Pipe disassembles ensuring easy access providing a continued pleasing smoke.

OCB Crystal Rolling Machine

There is a definite knack to rolling a perfectly long cylindrical cigarette, some people can make it looks so easy, remember those wonderful old Westerns where the Cowboy makes a smoke using one hand? Some of us cannot manage it with two! However, the OCB Crystal Rolling Machine will make the perfect cigarette which will be hard to tell form a “tailor-made” one.

All that is required is a supply of your favourite tobacco or herbal mixture, suitable paper, a good one is the Classic No.8 or Mascotte Green Organics, filter if you prefer one and then, roll the two rollers together moisten the edge and open up, there is your neat home-rolled cigarette waiting for you to enjoy. It really is that simple and for the very attractive price offered on our web pages of £2.99, or you can buy two for only £5.00 and have a spare in the car, pocket or handbag, whilst you always have on at home or when out and about.

Neat enough to carry around at 26mm (w) x 26mm (h) x 78mm (d) light in weight too at only 22grams, or less than an ounce if you prefer. This neat rolling machine would make a perfect companion for the Clip Shot Tobacco tin.

Dynavap The “M” 2020 Edition

You may have been vaping for some time and are used to the convenience and pleasure, but now could you be looking for a vaporizer with that bit more panache? Recently added to our extensive range of vaping items that can be found on our web pages, DynavapThe “M” 2020 edition is certain to give you the hit that suits you.

This is because it now features a clever method of allowing you to control the air flow and it works by adjusting form closed when you will experience a thicker steam, but opening up the flow of ait means that will provide a softer steam.

Like its predecessor the “M” 2020 is constructed from medical grade stainless steel, features a faceted tip with airflow serrations, but unlike some others does not need a battery, which of course can run out of power just when you need a smoke! Any external heat source such as a cigarette lighter will ensure that it will deliver the hits.

We believe that the “M” is the very first vaporizer that can be heated up in less than a few seconds using a cigarette lighter, or any other flame such as candle, or even that little glowing ember as you sit around a campfire. Simple to use just load a tiny amount of ground herbs into the Dynavap “M” tip heat up until you hear the distinctive click, and then you are on your way to inhaling full flavoured smoking.

This classic Indian fragrance has to be one of the most recognisable and popular fragrances; this is used in incense, soap, perfume oil, essential oils, candles and personal toiletries.

Prolight Triple Pocket Torch

This Prolight torch is really three items in one, the all-important lighter of course but in addition it has its own cigarette holder, as well as a cigar punch. But the lighter is the main feature and it is rather special as it has three flames, this makes it perfect for lighting your shisha charcoal.

Now as we all know the charcoal is an absolute essential part of the shisha experience, one the few things truly setting this pipe apart from virtually every other kind of pipe out there. This is the source of heat which causes the tobacco to produce smoke. However they can be hard to light, but this is made easy with Prolight and it will also light your charcoal barbecue!

Of course sensible precautions are necessary and you should always ignite the torch away from clothing and ensue that the flame is completely extinguished after each use. Whilst this is a child resistant lighter no lighter can be completely childproof, so keep away from children.

Excellent value for this three in one product at £22.99, we offer the Prolight in soft touch black or space chrome.

Spice up your room with a headshop candle

Even the most ardent smokers amongst us would agree that walking into a room which has been used for smoking leaves an odour in the air as well as on fabrics and furnishings. However there is a means of keeping your home smelling fresh and with a heavenly scent that will ensure that even the strongest of smell does not taint the atmosphere.

One great way of neutralising the after effects of smoke in your home is by using one of the many Headshop candles available. The great thing about our candles is the unobtrusive style that will never give away its purpose; candles are warm, attractive and very inviting in any home.

We have a wonderful range of these candles available, the full list of sixteen is shown at our web page, but they include Chocolate Chip Cookie, Cinnamon Tea, Jamaican Rasta and Spice to name but four of them. Every one of the delightful scents uses a candle which is a double wick system that ensures they burn evenly and produce a powerful fragrance. Headshop candles have been designed to eliminate unwanted smells and replace them with the beautiful scent of your chosen flavour; check out our web pages and choose the fragrances that you will enjoy.

Imperial Tobacco’s profits down 22% after planned inventory reductions

The Imperial Tobacco group announced today that its revenue fell by 5%, with operating profit down 17% for the six months to March 31st. The firm said that the slump in figures was due to a planned inventory reduction in some markets, but reiterated that it still stood by its full-year profit target.

For the six months to March 31st, revenue fell to £12.7 billion (5%), with operating profit falling 17% to £999 million. Over the last six months, Imperial Tobacco has been operating a planned inventory reduction, working with wholesalers and distributors in some markets to reduce the inventory they have to hand.

The firm said that the planed inventory reduction meant that it takes less time for cigarettes to get from the factory to the consumer, and that the impact was in line with predictions.

Imperial Tobacco also stated that currency fluctuations had added to its fall in net revenue, but the company stood by its full-year target of ‘modest’ growth.

Imperial Tobacco is currently the fourth biggest tobacco company by market share and produces such brands as Embassy, John Player & Sons, and Lambert & Butler. It recently announced that it was closing some cigarette factories in France and England in a cost cutting plan expected to save £60 million a year.
