So I would really be interested in starting a pipe because first of all it looks very cool, I like having a solid object that I can reuse over and over again and I like the fact that I need to pack my own tobacco which makes it more personal. So I know I need to get a pipe but that's about all I know. I know there are many different pipe shapes and sizes so does it really matter or are they just for looks? What are some good mild tobacco that I can put into the pipe? How do I keep my pipe clean? How do I light a pipe?
    That's a lot of questions. Don't have time right now to answer all, but this link is a good place to start.

    Re: Ask a Pipe Guy

    Quick question for the pros.

    I'm getting better at keeping my pipe lit for a longer period of time and also have been able to bring the heat of my pipe waaay down. Much more enjoyable now. HoweverI still want to make sure I'm packing it propertly. I'm just thinking maybe it would stay lit for the entire smoke if I was doing something differently when packing.

    I do the three step pack....however, I read all this stuff about sprinkling loosely with the last amount of tobacco added on till it is "mounded" up about a half inch. My tobacco is strips that DO NOT mound up or "sprinkle" easily into the bowl. They have to be worked down into the bowl. Do I need to look for a particular "cut" of tobacco to get a better burning bowl?

    It will all fall in place with practice and experience. Just keep smoking

    I plan on doing that most definitely.

    But along with all the different types of tobacco's out there, do I also need to be attempting to decide what "cut" of tobacco I prefer as well?

    I don't see any need to worry about it. You'll take a liking to one style or other as you get a little more time on your pipes. If you do want to search for that certain cut sign up for the newbie sampler trade in the WTS/B/T forums (you can only access them after a certain number of posts, soon if not already) http://www.puff.com/forums/vb/wts-b-t-pipe-stuff/ and those samples will help you experience the different cuts of tobacco

    I agree with Hatter, it will come to you. Sounds like you got the basics down. I've been doing just the three step pack followed by the false light and true light and it seems to work for me. But there is no one "right" way to do it really. Depends on the cut too like you inquire.

    Cuts seem to depend on your favorite tobacco. The course cuts and ribbon cuts are just what my favorite tobaccos happen to be. They all take getting used to. Uhle's Perfection Plug Burley (my absolute favorite) is like bird gravel and that took some getting used to.

    It's better to relight than smoke your pipe too hot. That way your getting the flavor.

    Give me tobacco or give me death

    I'm curious to know whether pipe tobacco is grown in the areas known for cigar tobacco, such as Cuba, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Mexica and Honduras.

    Some is grown in those areas although the tobacco for cigars is a bit different. Such as Perique, which is a spice tobacco, is mostly grown in Louisiana. Then you have all of your Virginia tobaccos which may or may not be actually grown in Virginia. Same goes for Kentucky tobaccos.

    It's very confusing actually.

    I don't think I've ever heard a good thing about a pipe with a metal bowl, not that there are a lot of them to be had. Metal doesn't cool the way wooden bowls do. There are metal pipes with wooden bowls that have a following but again the bowls are briar not metal.
