I was involved in the Secret Santa gift exchange here on Puff this year. On my wish list were several cigars and a "pipe starter kit." Well, I must have been good this year because anonobomber gifted me just that! Along with some "African Blend" starter-pipe tobacco.
So far, I've tried two bowls of the African Blend and I'm still getting the hang of it. I've watched several instructional videos on pipe smoking, but I think it's just going to take some practice. I've been using a screw to tamp because I don't have any tools...hahaha.
So I thought I'd just introduce myself here. I'm Pianoman. I'm in chat almost every day, so if one of you hard-core pipe experts would like to chat, drop in and PM me
Can't wait to try some different blends!
