The folks at Famous let us know about this for those who might be interested.
I’ve started to collect twitter URLs in the links page. I put in a single category, but an argument could be made to lump them into the existing categories. What do you think? Please add your twitter URLs when you get a chance.
This was a first for me. I lit a really tasty cigar, but the draw was terrible. I could tell there was a really good taste underlying what I was getting, which was mostly air. After taken both bands off, I spotted an almost perfectly round hole on one side, you can see it the picture above. The hole was hidden under one of the bands, though I’ll guess this wasn’t intentional. Covering it up with a finger made everything good, though my finger did get a bit hot. Thought I’d share in case someone else has a similar, initially perplexing situation.
There are new posts in the fora:
- A young woman is interested in how to best start pipe smoking.
- A gentleman from Mexico is interested in how to purchase tobaccos from Europe.
- There is a $200 fountain pen up for grabs for someone who posts some content.
After a lot of effort, the pipes.org forums are back online (using a new system) at http://www.pipes.org/forums/ Please join us for lively conversations about all things pipes and tobacco. As always, your contributions and feedback are greatly appreciated!

Is there anyone out there willing to help run this site? It was one of the first sites on the internet, regardless of content. When it was created 20 years ago, I had one job and no kids. Now, I have three of each. Please volunteer to help run things, there is plenty that can be done, and things that haven’t been imagined that should be done. Thanks!
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!
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.
