This is a discussion on Pipe Websites within the General Pipe Forum forums, part of the Pipe Smokers Forums category; I've been ordering from Iwan Ries in Chicago. They have a wide range of tobaccos, both tins and bulk plus ...
two pipemakers i had the chance to talk with at the KC Pipe show. their pipes are very solid looking, nice drillings, and still priced to a point where you could get them without going hungry for a month.
for me, smokingpipes.com has been the best in terms of prices on tobacco and always has stellar customer service. some people love 4noggins.com (especially those that live in Canada), others like pipesandcigars.com (they have some stuff in stock others do not - probably due to their customer service issues people have reported on here)...
I stumbled on this site bouncing around the web. Although the writing displays that 'English as a second language' character, I thought it was very informative on Turkish tobaccos. My apologies if this has been posted before.
Considering thats a real long list of sites, which ones would you consider the top 3 to order from?
I'm looking into pipe smoking so I'm reading up on it. but if I decide to try it out, I'd like to know where to go for good prices and things like that.
I like 4noggins, Iwan Ries, Boswell-But they only have thier own brand advertised. Call them to see if they stock other brands. Smoking Pipes, Pipes and Cigars, Mars, Cup o Joe's-but if you're New York, you're taxed out the a$$. Those are where I go when I'm looking for baccy.
Others will have thier favorites too, but these are the most common.
