An Edgeworth Sliced Pipe Tobacco Tin

It's become impossible to locate a lot of the pipe tobaccos of yore these days. They just ain't made no more. I still have a bunch of the metal tins though. One of the small pocket size tins holds postage stamps while another holds paper clips. The larger ones are ideal for storing empty 35mm cassettes awaiting a reload.

Edgeworth Sliced was made by stacking and pressing together a bunch of leaves, along with some other "secret" ingredients, then cutting the sandwich into very thin slices. You crumbled it up with your fingers as you filled your pipe. You could also buy Edgeworth Ready Rubbed, pre-crumbled and in a pouch. It always seemed to get too dried out and burned too hot.
