The forums should be working. I’m still sorting through all the archives, but if you click on the main topics, you will be taken to the newest posts. If you only had a login for the forums, it should still work. If you had logins for both the main pipes.org site and the forums, you might have to go through the password retrieval process. Sorry for the pain all this causes, but we really couldn’t continued to run on the software we were using before. Thanks!
I have decided I would like to take up pipe smoking, I do enjoy cigars and my wife asked if I would like to try a pipe, after doing some research I am very excited to go and buy my first pipe just wondering what recommedations some of you may have for buying and what tobacco to start with. My price point for the pipe is approx $100.00 . Also what type of tobacco would you recommend for somebody starting out. Last any other helpful tips would be appreciated.
What pipe I like the bent pipes but not to deep, Do you recommend a deep or shallow bowl. What type of tobacco is best to start I like sweet & honey and maple.
I recently took up pipe-smoking again after a 30 year lay-off. I used to smoke a pipe when I lived in the UK, but more or less gave up after moving to the USA in 1983. I still have my collection of pipes (mostly Kapp-Peterson) which I recently rediscovered whilst going through some boxes after a move. I found a brand new un-used Peterson System-317 which I thought I’d christen, and from the depths of my memory came the fact a coating of honey on the inside of the bowl of a brand-new pipe will enhance and speed up the formation of a carbon layer in the bowl. A few smokes later seem to verify this interesting tip. (Mac Baren “latakia blend” tobacco, for the new pipe, by the way!) – Wil Davis (NH)
I have over 200 pipes to sell… mostly used, some new with original boxes, some Meerschaums… a lot of them unique and beautiful! My ex husband was a nut for collecting them for years, and I have them all! I also have special racks, lighters, etc. Â I was wondering what the best way was to sell them besides ebay? I’d prefer to sell them by bulk. Â Any advice would be appreciated. Â Thank you!
