Here is a link to the cob I started with from amazon. If you scroll down the page, you’ll find and option to purchase the pipe, what we call a Czech tool, and a bundle of pipe cleaners for $21.

Those are some pretty upscale baccys!. But perhaps challenging to prepare and to taste on day one of your smoking adventure. If you have some small Ball or Mason type jars, put those samples in them to keep the tobacco from dying out. You'll appreciate those blends one day soon. In the meantime, get a "drugstore" blend and learn the ropes with that.

Actually, I think I'm wrong about one of these blends. I went on tobaccoreviews.com (which is a wonderful resource) and located a description of each of them. Assuming the first one is Toasted Black Cavendish, that is an aromatic ribbon cut and will be accessible right away. Esoterica Stonehaven is a virginia/burley flake cut and should be kept for later. Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. - Louisiana Flake is a virginia/perique flake cut and should probably also be saved for later. Anyway, someone gave you a very nice care package. Enjoy.

Then I'd layer in some pipe learnin'. You'll want to look up proper packing techniques. Smoke a few more bowls, then think about "cadence" ie smoking too slow, smoking too fast. Keep doing that, and layer in more pipe learnin'. How to light, tamping, different tobaccos, different pipes.

Smoke smoke smoke (learn) more smoke smoke smoke (another layer of learning + common question: why does it taste ashy) smoke smoke smoke (learning layer+ common question: can't keep it lit) smoke smoke smoke (learning layer+question) smoke smoke smoke etc etc

Pretty soon you'll be a pro. You'll be distinguished. You'll be sophisticated. You'll wake up one day and be able to sail a boat. You'll have extensive knowledge of early American literature. You'll be good at woodworking and tying various knots. You'll understand the stock market. You'll be an expert in the philosophy of John Locke. A lot of things happen when you get into smoking pipes.....it's a great thing.

If the two best knot tyers on puff.com say so...it must be true!
Now, I'm off to smoke a few bowls of some good tobacco...I want to upgrade from velcro to laces one day!
