Welcome! You can always grab a couple cob pipes for cheap and use them to test out different blends or just to get the feel of packing and puffing.

That would be a trip!
But the "wood grain" coloration pattern is different.

Thanks for the link! Maybe it IS real wood---it seems they have machining tools specific to each model, so it makes sense that the cuts would be the same. Feeling better.

Yes, they have computer run machines / lathes, that can cut the same exact piece, over and over again, using many different blocks of wood, with many different grain patterns.



As mentioned, adding a couple of nice Corn Cobs, will be a big asset to your pipe collection.

Also considering crossing over for time when i don't have the time for a cigar or when weather prohibits it. I tried a pipe a few years ago and got discouraged after a month of failing, so i know the blends I like. Lane's 1q, and i think it was the bcl... I'm looking at a Missouri meerscham for a starter, but is there a particular style that's better for learning?

I don't think you can go wrong with any pipe made by Missouri Meerschaum other than maybe the really huge or really small ones. I like the Legend and the Missouri Pride. The Country Gentleman seems to be a popular one.

You gentlemen should look into this deal that Dino @UBC03 posted here. Amazing deal in pipes and tobacco and you know you can't go wrong if Dino is making this offer.
