Looking for faqs/write ups on pipes for noobs.

Going over things like how to properly break in a pipe, what a heat crack looks like, how to properly restore pipes, etc. etc.

I understand this is mainly a cigar site - but I would imagine there is a site somewhere for pipes with those topics and many others as stickies, if not full blown articles with pictures out there.

This side of the boards is all pipe smokers though. If you read the stickied threads you should have all of the info you need. The members on this board will surely be able to answer any other questions you may have.

Yes, this is a great group of guys. Even if you ask questions that are in the FAQ, they are answered without the attitude of other forums (Like: "There's a search feature, use it!").

Sometimes, reading through trying to find your answers gets you on information overload, and asking the question looking for a direct answer is better than any search.

Re: Looking for faqs/write ups on pipes for noobs.

I would also recommend you become involved with the YouTube pipe smoking community. There is a very large number of people all over the world who share their love and knowledge of pipes and pipe smoking in all its aspects through their videos. Here is a link to a channel that will help introduce you to helpful information for a new smoker:

YouTube - 4PipeNewbies's Channel

Click on any of the playlists on this channel for links to videos on that topic. Puff's own RequiemPipes took the time to put this resource together for newbies and it's excellent. Also, most of the people who have videos linked in these playlists also have many other interesting and informative videos on their own channels so check them out.

I would also recommend you check out the following channels as a starting point:

YouTube - RequiemPipes's Channel
YouTube - dubinthedam's Channel
YouTube - Flieger671's Channel

There are many, many other excellent channels. You can find them by searching on a topic you are intersted in when you are on YouTube (probably the best way to find videos on a specific topic you are interested in) and by looking at the friends and subscriptions of the channels I've listed above.

Also, you don't have to post videos to be informed when someone posts a new video. Just create a channel and subscribe to their channels. Then you will receive an email every time they upload something new.

Hope this helps.

Is there a slap feature?

I've experienced nothing but good things since signing up. Pipe smokers in general seem to be a great bunch of guys. IMO, there's a lot less "jerks" smoking pipes than smoking cigars. Cigar guys are great, but a lot of them are just straight up a$$holes.

I smoke cigars though, so I can say that about them. I'm part of that group.

^That's how it works, ask my black friend.

^^ You have no idea how bad some of the car forums I am on, are. Completely high-and-mighty and I stopped contributing to them because I got tired of hearing the B.S. I wish I could slap someone through the internet, because they deserve it.

I hear you about the car forums. I briefly visited an SC400/300 forum last summer and I'd rather chew my own foot off than spend any time in those threads.

Re: Looking for faqs/write ups on pipes for noobs.

All the info is here, Indigosmoke, Mister Moo and some select few are extremely knowledgeable in the fine Pipe arts or know where to get the info if needed. It also seems they enjoy sharing the info which makes it less painful on our side of trying to learn these arts. I would suggest when it situation arises search out one of these individuals and ask them through a friendly pm.

Also some members here have vids on youtube for "How to's" These I find are great tools to use.

I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.
