Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash?
Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Prince Albert, Carter Hall or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores.
What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick).
All of these together should run you less than $20.

Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out.
If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:

"It's weird buying some old Peterson estate pipes and seeing how small they are. I suppose pipes went the same way as watches and ended up getting bigger as standard.

One looked like it was made of milk chocolate it had oxidised so much.";

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1373334 && dateTime=="10/05/18(Fri)15:09:44")

I'll try to get some pictures together. Just as some general thoughts on estate pipes for anyone considering them - the are a few things to consider. First, is avoid anything with a broken or missing stem. Finding replacement stems is a pain, and usually requires a custom job. I'd also consider how much work you want to put into restoring the pipe. You can get pretty far with elbow grease and household items, but they can't fix chips, cracks or holes. The best estate pipes are dirty, but otherwise undamaged.

As an example, the first Peterson had some nasty charring around the rim. Deep enough I had to sand it down and restain it. The only reason I had leather dye of the right colour is because I've dabbled in pipe making. It has other marks and nicks that with enough time I could fix - but this is /out/, not /fa/. I have zero doubts I'm going to drop this pipe at some point while camping, so I'm not going to obsess.

One useful thing to do is to invest in a reaming tool. Expect a cake in the bowl, draught hole and shank thick enough you can spread it on toast. Some 400 grit sandpaper will finish the bowl, and a few dozen pipe cleaners coated in isopropyl alcohol will clean the draught.

As a final point, I'd recommend not starting with an estate pipe. The only reason I know I've cleaned it properly is because I know what Bob's Chocolate Flake tastes like in a new pipe. Estate pipes have decades of tobacco oils impregnated into the wood - it's really easy to see a bowl that looks clean, but makes your tobacco taste like whatever they previous owner smoked for 20 years. Just buy a Missouri meerschaum. They're cheap and can last you years."

My man, it's up you to decide. I can tell you though that youbwill get far far more nicotine fom chew/dip than pipe. When you smoke pipes and cigars, you enjoy the flavor, the ritual and smoke rather than the buzz. I personally went from cigs to dip to vape and then pipes. The pipes are much more fulfilling in a ritualistic sense but keep in mind that you are dealing with combustion so moderating is key."

They’re called churchwardens. They’re a cool smoke, and primarily intended for use while sitting down. They aren’t really suitable for holding in your mouth by clenching as the majority of the weight is far removed from your body, which is why I don’t go for them. If you like how they look though, go for it. Pipes are a tool for consuming tobacco, and there’s never been a better selection of blends to purchase."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1375978 && dateTime=="10/09/18(Tue)14:40:32")

They used to be, when pipes were usually made out of clay. The long stem would keep your fingers from being burned by grabbing the flaming hot bowl.

Now with pipes mostly being made out of wood, it’s not as necessary as it used to be. They still look great, but the length is now just for fashion.

When I started years ago, sure - everyone does when they start. I mean, there’s plenty you can do to avoid tonguebite outside of simple practice. Use a filter, use a system pipe, use a p-lib, use a churchwarden, avoid aromatics and other tobacco with a reputation for burning your mouth.

You must be smoking some cheap cigars or trying way to hard to inhale. MOST quality cigars are packed tight which requires some effort to take in a mouthful of smoke, but not so much where you have to put some muscle behind your breath. Do not inhale cigars. Wait a bit between each puff, you don't want the cigar to over heat.

I'd recommend trying out one of these cigars:
Alec Bradley (so far, any. I especially like prensado)
Padron (no. 1 or anniversary series)
Punch (they smell weird but taste good)
A Fuente (grand reserva)

Any ribbon-cut from J.F.Germaine. They cut it down to a fine shag. I can pack it as hard as I like and it still burns like a champ. But with any tobacco, you should be fine if you use less than you think you’ll smoke, packed looser than you think you need.

> Fill me in on pipes, are they any good?
Sure. Some people smoke for taste, some for the exposure to nicotine over a longer period than a cigarette without the cost of a cigar.
> How long can I be huffing and puffing for? I heard something about overheating, is that an issue?
You can smoke for anything from 10 minutes to 3 hours. Without intentionally smoking slowly, most people will struggle to get a bowl to last that long. The size of the bowl and the density of tobacco after you’ve packed the pipe will determine how long it lasts. You can always fill the bowl half way if you fancy. Overheating happens when you smoke too fast, the bowl heats up and becomes uncomfortable to hold, and may start burning through if there are holes in the bowl wall. But that’s honestly quite difficult to do.
> What's a good place to start? Where can I find a nice pipe that doesn't break the bank in Sweden?
Missouri meerschaum make corncob pipes. They’re good value, cheap, readily available in most places in Europe. Their quality assurance could be better, but you’ll find no shortage of people that swear by them. Pick one up, and try to find something like Orlik Golden Sliced. Aromatic blends, usually with sweet-sounding names, will more than likely burn your tongue."

Almost forgot to mention, the best gauge (diameter) are the thinner cigars (as thick as a normal male thumb). Finger-thin cigars become hard to draw, and thicker ones have less flavor.

This is because most of the cigar flavor is in the binder/wrapper. (Think area (x^2) vs volume (x^3)) The rest is usually filler tobacco with mild taste.

Define excessive. Relights are fine, unless you're talking about every couple of minutes for the entire bowl.

Your embers are getting close to the moisture that has collected at the bottom of the bowl, and it's boiling off.

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1382128 && dateTime=="10/18/18(Thu)14:36:00")

Cooler ambient temp's affect on the temperature of smoke will be negligible. Unless your pipe is seven feet long and is paper thin, it's going to be nearly the same temperature on a 100 degree day as a -20 degree day when it reaches your mouth. The pipe itself will insulate the smoke from outside conditions, and even if it didn't, the time it takes for the smoke to travel from the bowel, through the stem, and into your mouth wouldn't be enough for any meaningful cooling to occur. Smoking has more "fuddlore" than shooting does, like people that think a green flame is cooler and better for smoking than a normal flame. All that said, fall is still my favorite time to smoke because of the leaves, that reason is totally valid"

A long churchwarden Falcon-style pipe with a heatsink all along the metal stem would probably work to cool it. Especially if you made the stem a little wider to accommodate tiny aluminum baffles inside, like a suppressor.

weed is, by the ridiculously stretched and Americanized view of the word a ""drug"", a far cry from pipe smoking in spirit, no personal problem with either itst just a very different topic

"After restoring the Peterson system pipe I bought, I’ve found that small bowls (this being the smallest bowl I think is practical) really aren’t forgiving of bad packing technique. With big bowls you know you can make up for it by fighting with the ember for 20 minutes. But with small bowls, that 20 minutes of work is most of the bowl. With that said, the ability to smoke a bowl of Irish flake when all you have is 30 minutes is wonderful. Sometimes I’d like a bowl before work, but I can’t go through an entire bowl of it in my cob country gentleman in less than an hour, and I don’t want to smoke half of it and then force myself to finish it in the evening when I might prefer something different. I don’t know about the US, but these old Peterson pipes are readily available online in the UK, and are generally a third of the price of Peterson’s contemporary equivalent (317) shape. If anyone has questions about restoring estate pipes, I’ll try to give an answer and provide some of the resources I used.";

That cap is extremely cool. I wonder why there’s not more of them about. They seem to be overlooked a lot, which is a shame since the clip-on type have a bad habit of ruining the finish on the rim with the buildup of moisture and tar. Even Peterson didn’t bother when they made an ‘outdoor’ series of pipes, which is weird since the UK and Ireland’s biggest import seems to be wind.

Depends on how you smoke, really. If you hold it while smoking, I’m sure it’ll be great. But I’ve been punished with sensitivity for clenching heavy straight pipes for too long, so I usually restrict myself to lighter pipes like cobs if I want a straight pipe and a smoke that is longer than an hour these days.

Also - here’s a recommendation for a savoury blend ; Dunhill’s aperitif. They sell it as an (obviously) aperitif, but it goes well as a morning pipe. Try as I might, I can’t get tongue bite from it. Give it a go before the doors start closing and people start buying tins in bulk."

If you want it to keep, and it isn’t in a vacuum sealed tin, you’ll want to jar it. Glass and airtight, if you can. If it’s an English or Virginia blend, pack it loosely and open it every now and then. You want it to age in the jar. If it’s an aromatic, pack it tightly and keep it shut - unlike English blends, they don’t age well. The casing and topping protect the tobacco from the environment, and age in place of the leaf. This means instead of developing taste, you end up with a weaker aromatic.

Let me break this down for you chum, in case you don't understand.
Most pipe smokers will smoke cigars, most pipe smokers enjoy both cigars and pipes, though the experience is different.
I prefer pipes because of the variety in terms of flavors, where as with cigars if you want the full reach of what you can smoke, you will need to be putting down some real moolah.

You want to go for a drier style of tobacco, if it is too wet then it won't light or stay lit properly, sounds like your brand is either naturally wet, or has gotten damp somehow.
Spread it out on a cookie sheet, at a gentle 20 degree heat for 30 minutes, that ought to dry it out without spoiling any flavor.

Can't go wrong with a good bulldog style tobacco pipe, made out of briar. You might also consider an estate pipe, there should be plenty of second handers to buy in Sweden and they are easy to clean.

Overheating is only an issue if you repeatedly pack and smoke.


Don Kikis Red Bands were a particular favorite of mine when I lived back in NA. Nicaraguan hand rolled, but the tobacco is Habana, similar climate so you were getting an cubanesque cigar without Cuban prices.

Monte Christos are nice Cuban cigars.

Avoid Quoroms unless you've got an iron lung, Quorom Blacks are only cigar that I've ever had to lie down after smoking because I was light headed. Very strong.

Meharis are an Indian or Java style cigar, so smaller quicker smokes, but nice if you can only spare the time for a quick drink and smoke.

I always recommend paired drinks with your cigar or pipe, whiskey's or brandy are a good choice.

It's definitely the comfiest season for it.

Nice restoration anon.

A beautiful Frau prepping dinner for you. While you smoke, that's about all I could add.

Get estate pipes if your really not able to afford new upmarket. A good pipe is a generational investment, and as long as it's in good condition and cleaned properly there is no real adverse differences.
I restored a gamut of old pipes. My favorite one was a beautiful walnut colored briar that I've recently lost on a bus ride. :( 1950's make, hadn't been smoked since the 70's at least and was in a right state when I bought it, but with the right cleaning was as good as new.

From the US Surgeon General’s famous 1964 report on the health effects of smoking (yes, THAT one):
Page 86 (93 on PDF file)
>For current pipe smokers (Table 5), men smoking less than 10 pipefuls per day have death rates very close to those of non-smokers.
>For heavy pipe smokers (10 or more per day) two studies show increases of 15 and 12 per- cent in death rates, but the other two studies show little or no increase.
>The over-all mortality ratio of 1.05 does not differ statistically from unity.

Note at bottom of the page:
>*Statistical significance throughout this report refers to the 5 percent level un- less otherwise specified. In testing whether an observed mortality ratio of smokers relative to non-smokers is greater than unity, the probability is calculated that a ratio as large as or larger than the observed ratio would occur by chance if the smokers and non-smokers were drawn from two populations having the same death rate. >If this probability is less than 0.05 (5 percent) the observed increase in the death rate of smokers relative to non-smokers is said to be statistically significant at the 5 percent level. The results of significance tests will be quoted only for mortality ratios in which the number of deaths raises a doubt as to whether the difference from unity could be due to sampling errors.

TL;DR-there is more variation in mortality rates between randomly assembled groups of people than there is between groups of exclusive pipe smokers and non-smokers.

It’s a convoluted situation to be sure. The blends were made by Dunhill, then Murray, and now STG/Orlik. K&K have distributed those blends, but have never made them. It’s not entirely clear what recipe K&K are using. They haven’t received the rights from BAT (hence the names), and STG/Orlik have no reason to hand out their recipes (which are likely the only ones that can be used in 2018 - what do you do when the recipe calls for 20% Syrian Latakia?). Particularly not when STG have an interest in continuing to produce their most popular pipe blends. So the best guess would be that they’ve found either Murray’s or Dunhill’s original recipes and reworked them to use available leaves.

I’ll have to try their equivalent of aperitif. I’m sure i’ll like it, but I’m not sure it’ll be the same. There’s a lot that goes into a blend that isn’t tobacco. K&P found that out when they were remaking Old Gowrie - you can get the same leaves, but you’ll never get the same water, environment and staff (cracking blend though)."

I am in the US, i dont have to worry about anything but my PCP having a hissy fit. And i understand that, since its not already a habit for me, i shouldnt start. But going from what youve just said, there shouldnt be any problem with me smoking a pipe once a week on a hike then?"

You have nothing to worry about, pipe smokers are statistically indistinguishable from nonsmokers."

"Oh fug, what's up /out/? Seekay poster here. I started smoking pipes when I was 16 because I was a goddamned edgelord, but it's been years since I broke them out.

My collection peaked at around 12 or so during my brief college stint but I often gave them away - my core group has remained two Mario Grandis and a Corinzio.

Is MG still around?

Also, is Cornell and Diehl still a thing? They were making waves back in 2008-2012. Billy Budd was my favorite for a long while."

Likely smoking too fast, or tobacco is too humid."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1392561 && dateTime=="11/06/18(Tue)19:13:17")

That’s called tongue bite, and it’s a small steam burn caused by steam going up the mouthpiece and condensing on your tongue.
You’re probably either smoking too fast, packing your tobacco too tightly, have pipe tobacco that is too wet, or some combination of the three. Fill your pipe looser than you think you should, and smoke it slower than you think you ought to.
Also, test your tobacco’s moisture by pinching it. If it feels at all damp it’sbtoo wet, if it crumbles it’s too dry, and if it is dry but springs back it’s just about right."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1392650 && dateTime=="11/07/18(Wed)00:05:38")

When folk say smoke slower does that mean put the stem to your mouth less often, or when you inhale do it slowly? Does slowly also mean deeply? I am never sure if I am taking in too much or too little."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1392666 && dateTime=="11/07/18(Wed)01:03:12")

Puff less frequently. Depth and duration doesn't matter as much."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1392667 && dateTime=="11/07/18(Wed)01:06:17")

Take puffs less often, and draw in more lightly when you do.
If you just keep sucking at the pipe repeatedly, there’s no time for the moisture at the bottom of the pipe to escape any other way than up the stem and into your mouth. Letting the pipe rest a little between puffs will give any moisture that builds up time to evaporate away, up through the bowl and away from your mouth. This is also why packing more loosely is important: it allows the moisture to escape before it builds up and turns into tongue bite or foul tasting condensation.

Likewise with your draw. You’re not sucking a milkshake through a straw, more like sipping a glass of water. The slower and easier you go, the better the flavors and the better experience you will have."

A briar pipe weighs fuck all, are you serious?"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1392936 && dateTime=="11/07/18(Wed)19:03:09")

I’d go with a standard sized pipe to start.

First off, they’re going to be cheaper. The MM cob pipe in the OP is $7, while a churchwarden is most not. Even the cheap ones are going to cost about $20 or more.

Second, churchwardens came about before the use of briar, when pipes were mostly clay, and the long stem kept your fingers away from the flaming hot bowl.
With briar now on the scene, you don’t need a pipe to be that long. Wood is a much better insulator than fired clay, so your fingers aren’t burnt when you grab a hot pipe, even by the bowl.
Third, churchwardens are too long to really be good for /out/ stuff. Long stems are fragile, and ceramic is not very tolerant of being bounced around day after day. Which is why their realm was confined to places where people were mostly stationary, like houses, taverns and warden-houses in places like churchyards and prisons. When people were really going to be doing /out/ things with their pipes, they wanted them either short and light so they could go into a pocket without breaking, easily replaceable or both. So reed-stemmed clay pipes (which break down easily and the thing most likely to break is found growing wild alongside every river and creek on three continents) are the most common types of the pre-briar era’s /out/ pipes. The clay bowls were small, compact, easy to make and cheap, while the reed for the stem was basically free."

In my experience, those are terrible papers. I've had positive experience with J.O.B 1 1/4's (I just prefer 1 1/4's in general, as they're longer), RAW, or just plain Zig Zags. I don't smoke pot anymore, but they all work really well for tobacco too. If you can stand the company that owns RAW, they burn really slow and evenly, and they're all natural hemp paper."

Sutliff’s Mixture 79 is one.
It’s like the American version of a Lakeland, very herbal and supposedly Hugh Hefner's favorite blend when he smoked.
To get the best out of it, you need to smoke it SLOW, and definitely try it in a different pipe than your favorite until you’re sure you like it. It can ghost a pipe like nobody’s business."

I just picked it back up after a few years hiatus. I remember liking University Flake but I would always have mostly Latakia blends in my rotation, and would only go for other varieties here and there.

If you're interested in University Flake you might try the Erinmore first. UF was quite syrupy, per my memory, and was a bit of a finicky smoke. The EF has very similar qualities but with the...well...dankness, I suppose, dialed back.

Nightcap was among my favorites and it's sad to see it going again. I also loved Billy Budd and Habana Daydream from C&D and the whole Frog series from McClelland but that's apparently gone now too."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1396543 && dateTime=="11/14/18(Wed)10:08:44")

1792 Flake from SG is one hell of a dark flake, and a personal favourite of mine. But if you want something lighter and more all-day, Squadron Leader is a solid but mild English.

On the Peterson side, I like Sherlock Holmes. It tastes like it smells, and it smells like an air-cured Virginia tobacco barn."
