I bought my first pipe this past weekend. A $10 corncob pipe (gotta start somewhere, ya know?).
I do like the idea of trying out pipes when I don't have a huge amount of time. Since I am brand new to this, I don't really know much about who is good and who is not. I found a $7 tin of some Davidoff pipe tobacco which I got. And since Davidoff is good in cigars I assume they are good for pipes too.
Perhaps does anyone have a good web link that I could go to in order to get a good 101 on pipes and get an idea on a good brand or sampler I should look into?
