Pipes and Pipe Tobacco

I like a good cigar now and then and was thinkin'. I want to try a pipe and tobacco. I think I prefer bent and non-filtered. The last time I tried a pipe, it was a corncob pipe, straight and filtered. It was very hard to keep burning. Someone said the key is too not use the filters. So, what do you guys reccomend for pipes and tobacco and where is the best place to buy them? Thanks.

Re: Pipes and Pipe Tobacco

IMHO. When I was a pipe somker I liked a pipe with along stem because the long stem permits the smoke to cool down between the bowl and the mouth. Also, I found that the way I packed the bowl had a lot do do with the ease of draw and the capablity of the tobacco to stay lit. I also found that there was a difference in terms of how to pack the bowl depending on the cut (length) of the tobacco itself. In the long run, I gave it up because it was too complicated and too frustrating to remember all the nuances relative to tobacco type and all that sort of stuff. Also, I save a ton of money when I quit.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: Pipes and Pipe Tobacco

If you're looking at trying it, may I suggest a Dr. Grabaw Omega pipe(filter removed), and try McClelland TQ tobacco.

I have around 30 pipes ranged from $5 corncobs to $200 Savinellis, and the $30 Omega is my favorite. I have to order the TQ, but it is well worth it. I've tried 100's of blends, but I keep coming back to the Omega and TQ.

I see you are in Pittsburgh, here is the pipe/cigar shop I go to when I'm down that way, great people to deal with.
