Just discovered this place and thought I'd better register before having a look around.
I've been smoking pipes for only a couple of years now and should have started it long ago.
Down here in Sydney there is a small pipe scene, we pay too much for tobacco so choices are limited. We do get a few varieties but nowhere near what is available in the USA or Europe. And about 3 times the cost. Our government taxes all tobacco heavily.
Currently I'm smoking things like Blue Note, Peterson's connosieurs choice, and Dunhill Nightcap.
Started off with a cheap locally made pipe which smokes really well, I still use it a lot. Then I got an unsmoked 1995 Astley off ebay along with a large IMP Meer and I'm currently waiting on a lovely Mario Grandi giant to come from the USA.
A recent trip to the tobacco shops of Europe almost broke my heart, I must go back soon and do some shopping.
Anyway, that's my story, thanks for having me here.
