  • BIG CHANGES FOR FALCON PIPES IN NEW ZEALAND
    The new Australian owner of Falcon pipes in the UK has recently brought in a much expanded range of those pipes to New Zealand via their New Zealand subsidiary here in Auckland.
    I have just finished loading the new images and their details to my website and there are some great additions - notably there are now Meerschaum-lined bowls for all the Standard and International stems.
    Read the category notes for an explanation of the value of using these Meerschaum-lined bowls.

  • Yes, Gentlemens Corner (Tobacconist, Shaving Supplies, Men's Gifts) is moving again. This time to very private 10-acre lifestyle farm in Taupaki, just south of Kumeu (where we are at the present). We are still to the north within the Greater Auckland area but you wouldn't know it - the Internet is promised to be abysmally bad and Spark has to give us new phone numbers.
    This all means that my service to you might be interrupted for two weeks while we test out Spark's weak rural Internet service in the Taupaki area of Auckland.
    The newly-assigned phone number from Spark for the business line is (09) 810-7496 and for the message line is (09) 810-7494 from Wednesday 21st September 2016.
    From that date on, calls to the old message number (09) 412-5227 will be met with a message advising the new phone number.
    Calls to the old business number will not be handled (as I understand it - because it was actually a faxability number option on the message line, which was our home phone number).

  • JUST IN TIME FOR FATHERS DAY - CLASSIC AND MODERN BAROMETERS
    Just available in New Zealand here on Gentlemens Corner is this great range of classic and modern barometers which predict the weather based on the changes in ambient barometric pressure. Also some models show the ambient temperature in either analogue actual expansion or needle display.
    Some models also show the humidity of the air and one even features a classic dial clock for timekeeping. All are now available here in New Zealand but you need to hurry as stocks of some models can run out.

  • RANGE OF DR PLUMB PIPES HAS BEEN REFILLED - NOW THEY ARE ALL AVAILABLE
    The range of the high quality English brand Dr Plumb pipes has been refilled from the UK with only a $34.00 price increase on the price that has been stable for many years. This is a sterling effort on David's part to keep prices down, even though the New Zealand dollar has climbed massively over those years.
    So these very popular pipes are in stock in the importer's Wellington warehouse and available with just a couple of day's notice again.
    This brand is synonymous with extreme quality in briar selection and in hand-craftsmanship. Still at a great price compared with the other leaders in extreme quality brand names. Get one or two now for yourself or as a quality gift for that special person.

  • HIGH QUALITY FALCON COOLWAY PIPES NOW AVAILABLE AGAIN IN NZ
    After an absence of many years from the NZ marketplace (they used to be amongst our best sellers for the 20 years we had the physical shop) Falcon Coolway pipes (made in the UK from the best Mediterranean briar) are now available again in New Zealand. Staggeringly, the new distributor's Australian counterpart actually bought the company outright in the UK and all the accounting and stock functions for that manufacturer (Falcon) are now run from that distributor's office in Albany, Auckland.

  • An enforcement officer from the ADHB has required, in writing, that I remove all and any tobacco-related articles from this website in terms of the requirements under the Smokefree Legislation. Further, only specific information about tobacco products can be supplied in a website - the same requirement as in a physical retail shop today.

    This is why a large bulk of explanatory information has been removed (approx. 60% of the website articles).
