Hello everyone. I have been bitten by the pipe bug thanks to a number of members in the straight razor community. I live about 2 hours North of Toronto and not a whole lot of Tobacco shops close by. Ordered a Savinelli from 4noggins yesterday to get me started and 2oz of a 4noggins blend and 2oz of Carter Hall. The carter Hall seemed to come recommended from the razors guys so I am starting with that. the package also came with a few other necessary items to get me started, but if it is anything like the razor world I am sure I will be ordering again soon and scouring Antique and other various places for estate finds.
Anyway just wanted to throw out an introduction and see if there were any other Canadians around. Really Curious to see what happens when the tobacco from 4 noggins hits the border. Will it get held up and delayed or is it pretty standard affair.
Also another questions for any Canadians. If this package gets held up is there any starter tobacco you would suggest that one can normally find in local stores. I know some sites refer to drug store blends, but here in Canada our drugstores do not sell anything of the sort.
