Any Traditional Pipe Smokers?

I was wondering if any of you out there were tobacco pipe smokers.

It's a hobby I have picked a little bit ago and wanted to be able to share my experience with others.

I have been a cigar smoker for close to 13 years and recently decided to get into pipe smoking.

If you're out there, let us know.

My grandpa used to smoke a pipe and I would like to light one up every so often. Matter of fact I think I'll ask my aunt if she still has any of my grandpa's pipes. Thanks for the idea.

They eye is doing much better. Dare I say 100%. It goes blurry every now and then for about a minute, but other than that the eye is great. It's all part of the healing process.

As far as getting into pipe smoking, it's quite easy to get in to. Get yourself a pipe, lighter (pipe lighter preferred), tamp tool, and tobacco. If you have a tobacconist (pipe shop, could also be a cigar shop) near by just stop in. Tell them you are a novice and you want to start. They will usually guide you through the different kinds of pipes and tobaccos.

For me, I started with one pipe and some different aromatic tobaccos. It's just a matter of what you like.

Below are a few links for you if you want get into pipe smoking.

The you tube one is for a guy that has a ton pipe smoking vids. Everything from breaking in a pipe, packing, lighting, smoking, he's got everything. That's where I got some good tips.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Wow, now that would be cool if you could get his pipes. Especially if they were good quality ones.

It's a great way to relax.

Here is a link for you if you end up getting those pipes. It's from a pipe thread and it tells you how to clean them up and ready for you. That way you will have a great pipe with a great history, but it will fresh and clean for you to smoke. Some estate pipe can be really nasty, but they clean up nice.

Good luck. Let me know how it turns out.

It's a nice, cool smoke. That's what I like most about it. I am really wanting to get a churchwarden pipe. It's the ones with long stems. They say it's the coolest smoke you can get. The smoke travels so long that there is virtualy no heat left.

Kinda like this one.

I smoked pipes for about fifteen years and learned a good blended tobacco and a good pipe makes for a good cool smoke. Over the years I collected about twenty pipes and rotated them for about a week at a time. I had some good smoking pipes which I took on trips because they fit well in a pocket or ash tray. You will also find another style you prefer to smoke in the garage or shop when working with both hands. I think it's a bit of a lost art...Enjoy...
