Very nice. Between work and grad school I've been quite busy this year and haven't had much time on the forum let alone my usual newbie (to pipes) bombings of our cigar BOTL, I'm glad people are picking up my slack. Nice bombing, even before I got to Wineador's post I figured the lack of a pipe would soon be remedied. If you want to buy one yourself too, a cob is cheap so you aren't out much if you don't like it, and any serious pipe smoker needs one too (cheap beater, great for trying new tobaccos, and just a fun little, or not so little, pipe). Some good quality starter pipes would be any mid-line Peterson (I love Peterson, but definitely prefer their $100-150 pipes to the cheaper or more expensive ones), and any Savinelli. Ben Wade and Hardcastle make some nice, pretty affordable, pipes as well.
