Hello all! My names Dan and im new to pipe smoking. I have smoked cigars for awhile now. So far I really enjoy pipe smoking. I have a cob and just orded some tobacco from 4noggins. got the christmas blend to try out.
Hello everyone; well i've been smoking cigars for a year now and decided to try pipes within the last month. I already have 10 pipes (cobs and estates) and have been to Iwan Ries in Chicago (It's just a train ride away.)
I found myself watching DubintheDam and labsix's youtube videos before i even bought a pipe; as i find it's best to study before imersing oneself into something.
Anyway i'm happy to be here and know i'll learn much.
My name is Davy and I'm new to pipe smoking. I bought a falcon pipe about a year ago and tried it. I was very disappointed...
Now a year later, i purchased a few cobs and some better quality tabacco and I'm getting the hang of it.
I'm still looking for a good tobacco store here in Belgium, but for the time being, I order tobacco online. Shipment from the US to Belgium costs quite a bit...
Hello all. I am new to this forum (and pipe smoking) and was happy to find it. It looks like a great site and appears to have a wealth of information. I have chosen a churchwarden for my first pipe, and love it. After watching the Lord of the Ring films, I developed an interest with long-stemmed pipes, and was happy to see that they exist outside of Hollywood. I am in the process of trying different tobaccos, and at this time, I have to give the edge to Prince Albert. Being new to pipes, I like how PA stays lit and gives lots of creamy, white smoke. Carter Hall is very similar. Other brands like Borkum-Riff are good to, but I am struggling with keeping them lit. I don't mind re-lighting, but I am having to relight almost constantly with some brands, almost to the point where it takes the enjoyment out of smoking.
I look forward to staying in touch and participating in some threads. I am looking forward to it.
I started off with cigars, but after joining this forum was intrigued by pipes. One day, by chance, I walked across a store (in China of all places) selling pipes. Picked one up for about $15. Once I got back to the US, I went to the local tobacconist and picked up some aromatics based on the owner's recommendations. Been hooked since. Love the fact that pipe smoking is much cheaper cigars. Hope to learn more.
I just joined this forum the other day. My name is Gig and some of you may know me from other pipe forums. I'm Australian and live in the biggest inland country town in the state of New South Wales called Wagga Wagga. I'm 48 years old, married for 15 years and have 2 children. I'm a College School teacher and enjoy Fly fishing, fly tying and making pipes. I have been smoking now for almost a year and still trying to find a tobacco I would smoke all day. I have yet to try a tobbacco that I want to smoke twice in a row yet so my search continues. I own pipes made by Dr Grabow, Falcon, Peterson and Cavicchi and continually on the search for estate pipes. My wife, Jenny calls me obsessive and I may have to agree with her
I'm rambling on now so I hope to participate when I can and learn off the more experienced
My name is Damian. I have been smoking a pipe for around 6 months now. I found this forum and have been reading it for a month or so and decided Id register and join in. Alot of great info here I wish I wouldve found it before I started it would have saved me many bad smokes.
A long life may not be good enough, but a good life is long enough.
Finally registered after lurking about for a while. There's so much knowledge to be found here, glad I'm finally part of the community. I picked up my first pipe (a Grabow) and a pouch of CB Cherry a few months ago. It only took about 1/4 bowl before I decided to dispatch the pouch of Cherry to the firepit in my backyard. I knew there had to be more to it than that, and thus began my search for pipe knowledge. I've since purchased a few more pipes as well as some tobaccos I've really enjoyed (Maltese Falcon and MacB's Club Blend come to mind). Looking forward to 'hanging out' with rest of you.
I am a big cigar smoker and only recently have started to smoke a pipe, (to my wife's horror). Personally what has drawn me to smoking a pipe was the beauty of the hand carved pipe. What keeps me smoking is the wonderful pipe tobaccos that are out there.
My name is Dan and I've been smoking cigars for about three years now. A friend just recently gave me a pipe so i'm going to give this a shot. Hopefully this will be as satisfying as I've heard. Now I just need to find a nice pipe.
