Customer Testimonials

(the following is a letter we recieved from Mr. Mervyn Weeks, of NYC)

  "Hello and Happy New Year!!!

 

What you’re about to read is probably Boswell Pipes testimonial # 100,001 so I’d be surprised (albeit pleasantly) if portion of this ever made it onto the boswellpipes.com testimonial page or into the Boswell testimonial scrapbook J

 

The Story:

 Just days prior to placing my first Boswell pipe tobacco order I realized that the Boswell name is synonymous with a sort of long running cult following among pipe enthusiasts---or at least that’s the impression I got after viewing and reading accolades about your products on youtube.com, Facebook, tobaccoreviews.com, and in several other online pipe forums.  Berry Cobbler and Christmas Cookie in particular were all the fuss.  I checked tobaccoreviews.com for 3 or 4 additional four-star Boswell aromatics and shortly thereafter I placed my first order.  I still recall the day the package got into my hands; an edible aroma literally breached confines of the box and I tore it open!!!

 

 I later started to read and hear things from fans like “I don’t smoke anything but Boswell aromatic tobaccos but they’re

  even better when enjoyed in a Boswell pipe!”  Now, I’ll admit that I was for weeks secretly throwing tantrums over the fact that there was a limited availability of these must-have pipes which always seemed to be sold out whenever I visited the website.  I wrote in via email and learned from someone named Gail that the pipe sales usually occurred every Thursday morning, and that orders had to be phoned in.  A dozen or so fits later---mostly attributed to more frustration over the pipes selling out within what seemed like two hours--- I was determined to be at the site promptly AT 10:30AM and quick with my decision.  Well, determination FINALLY paid off.  After thirty or so re-dial attempts one Thursday, I successfully placed an order for a Large Rustic Poker.  The only thing better than the pipe itself was the excitement of finally defeating the seemingly never ending busy signal.  The day my doorbell rang and UPS had me sign for my parcel, I understood shortly thereafter why     any pipe smoker HAS TO own at least ONE “Boswell”.  I opened up the impeccably packaged pipe box, attached the stem to     the shank, and marveled at it for days.  Every time I set my eyes on it I’d proclaim “Now THAT’S a man’s pipe!!! A monster!!! Larger than life!!!”  See, I have long fingers so the tall bowl is PERFECT.  It offers a full, rich, easy smoke that’s unlike any other pipe brand I’ve ever smoked. 

 


Boswell Handmade Worship:

As of today, 7-Jan-11, I own five (5) of your famous pipes.  I enjoyed my first taste of your Cherry Smash aromatic in my brand new Fat Stubby Single Ring and I’m absolutely enamored with both!!!  I have another several fairly inexpensive briars (e.g., 1 – Amadeus; 1 - Bjarne; 1 - Calabresi, 2 – Peterson’s, 3 - Savinelli, 1 – Stanwell) all well under $100 that I’ve given the cold shoulder since getting my hands on a Boswell.

 

Let me state that while the order process will most likely frustrate potential buyers, the quality, craftsmanship, packaging, and shipment expedition makes the totality of the process extremely gratifying.  The limited “quantity concept” means to me that what the customer will receive is a rarity.  Sure, I’ve wondered what the high-end Dunhill smoking experience is like, but for thousands of dollars less, I know that I have in my possession a “one-off” that was recently made by hand (in the U.S.A.) in the old tradition.  I’m so thoroughly impressed with the Boswell experience that my curiosity about Dunhill and other pipe brands has since waned.

 

 

Wishing you continued success!!!

 

Thank you from NYC,
