Those of you with a few gray hairs, and younger
smokers who have done their pipe related research (I'm with the
know about "rotator" tobacco pouches. This is a "roll-up"
style pouch in which the first tobacco placed into it is the
first tobacco used
thus the name Rotator. In a conventional pouch, new tobacco
is put on top of old, and you have a - first in, last out - situation.
The Rotator fixes that problem so the first tobacco in - is the
first tobacco smoked. Ser Jacopo makes a gorgeous "Rotator"
style pouch of "to die for" leather. It's available
in black, brown, burgundy and camel, and is lined with
so there's no cracking vinyl or plastic. This is the best tobacco
pouch - period.
Hopefully the photo3 above give a fairly good idea
of the Rotator principle. There is a sleeve lined with surgical
rubber which runs the
back side of the pouch. Tobacco placed into the sleeve empties
into the bottom of the pouch, but right behind any tobacco previously
placed in the pouch. Tobacco is taken in the same manner as a
conventional roll-up style pouch. Another positive aspect of
is that it holds more tobacco than a conventional roll-up. Just
another reason why we say: This is the
best tobacco pouch - period.
Suggested retail price: $150.
If you are interested in purchasing a Ser Jacopo "Rotator"
pouch, and your preferred dealer does not have them in stock,
