Just got a new dr grabow omega pipe. Read on a review that I should only smoke 1 kind of tobacco out of each pipe, is that true or just enjoy it? This is the second of my pipe collection. Both grabows. Pretty excited to try it when I get home tonight, might even try tossing filter! Getting crazy here lol
It doesn't matter what you smoke in the pipe. The fear is ghosting it.
Ghosting is when flavors from certain tobaccos remain in the bowl of the pipe. To start out with, I would only worry about having 1 pipe for Latakia (English), 1 for Virgina/Burley, and 1 for aromatics if you're going to smoke those.
Cobs are your best friend as a new pipe smoker BTW. Cheap, so if you ghost is with something you don't like you can toss it without hurting the pocket book too much.
