Our tasting nerves may mutate but there are changes in the product
as well.
I used to smoke McBarens Mixture for 15 years. Then I found the
taste quite strange. When I asked a dealer during a business trip
he gave me the usual crap: Nobody ever complained, it's our best
seller, blabla ... This was around 1975.
Back home, I asked my dealer and got a surprising information:
Well, they started to add artificial tobacco to reduce the cost.
In this moment I switched to classic natural mixtures and later
to my own Virginia/Latakia mixture.

Regards from Germany

Blue Tip matches here, so I haven't gone looking especially hard. But
the T. matches are, without doubt, the best I've ever lit a pipe
with. -S.]

Hi Steve,    I did a search for Tordenskjold pibetaendstikker on
Yahoo.   Came up with a matchbox collector.   For Tordenskjold I found
that the matches had been made, at least at one time, by Gosch & Co
match factory.   And they seem to have come from Denmark, and not
Holland.   I would not normally do so extensive a search, but I have
been looking for cigar matches to light my pipes.  They seem to work the
best of anything for the first light.   I burn my fingers on kitchen
matches, before the tobacco is completely lit.   If you come up with a
source for long matches, let me know , and I will do the same.   Were
you at the Hollywood show?  I bought a wiley bulldog from you if you
were.   Great pipe!   Has become a favorite.   Gary

[Later... -S.]

Hi Steve,   I was just in a pipe shop today, and bought 10 boxes of
cigar matches, that might suit you.  They are "Swan Vestas" extra long
smoker's match(sulpher free).   They are wooden.  45 to the box.  Made
by Swedish Match NA in Spain
address Richmond, VA 23230   They are 3 3/4" in length.  Gary

In response to Motorcycling with a pipe you would be surprised at how little
turbulence there is behind the faring on a Goldwing.  You can keep a match
lit behind one, so lighting your pipe is safe.  In fact, there is more
turbulence in my car with the window down that on a Wing.  The stability of
a Wing is such that you can go for miles without touching the handlebars and
just navigate with a weight shift, so you can use both hands for packing,
lighting, and tamping much safer than in your car trying to drive with your
knee.  I have spread lunch out on the gas tank while touring and had a
picnic while going down the road at 70 mph, smoking a pipe is no problem at
all.  Most bikes have too much vibration for a picnic, but not a Wing.

I've seen pipes of that style with perforated metal fliptops, to reduce
wind effects.

One learns to pack well for a long burn (helped by the forced air), or
one learns how to pop the pipe in one's pocket when it goes out.

I used to have a little torpedo shaped pipe, with the bowl open forward,
and a screw-on perforated cover. It smoked not badly on my XS750 Silverbird.
Later, I found a rough-finished tree-stump shaped pipe with a long rubber
hose, intended to be placed on one's dashboard. I _may_ have smoked that
one on my BMW; memory is the first thing to go (I think. IIRC). I've
since lost both, but I have been thinking about getting another.

As one is already wearing eye protection (or one is an idiot), and in
any case, the pipe pipes must have a good screen to be smokable,
flying ash is not as threatening as might be assumed. If one engages
in an accident, one _must_ remember spit out the pipe in defense of
one's dental work and speaking equipment, but in terms of absolute (as
opposed to relative) percentages, the risk of injury is not very much
increased. On balance, I wouldn't say that the risks outweigh the
amusement factor. OTOH, I've been known to shepherd ("drive" would be
a gross exaggeration) a sidecar.

I've been trying to lure my cigar-smoking biker-scum friends to the
pleasures of the pipe. I fear that as long as cigars are hideously
expensive, it will continue to be a hard sell.

This is a poem I wrote that I thought some of you might enjoy.

I love your soft curves and your smooth supple touch
Your warmth against my skin as I hold you
I love the quiet evenings spent in your company alone
The sweet scent of the fire I ignite in you
Though at times I may look at the others around
Rest assured, you will not be de-throned
None other could ever measure up in my eyes
You're the finest pipe I've ever owned

I am afraid that I must post some bad news. On 6/11/02, I sent a
cashier's check (a LARGE one) to Rolf J. Rutzen for a Jess
Chonowitsch. We exchanged numerous emails, but to date, I have not
received my pipe or a refund. He will no longer answer my emails and I
understand that there are a number of others in the same
predicament. Please be advised of this, as I would not recommend doing
business with this man. I am in the US and he is in Germany, so it
would be very hard to get the authorities involved. This is the first
time I have run into a dishonest pipe smoker.......too bad.

Dear Steve, 

Thank you so much for such a wonderful web-page - your
text(s) taught me a lot about the little nuances and
details to get a real pleasure from pipe-smoking
pastime. I'd be glad to subscribe to get the news,

I would highly appreciate if you'll be able to
recommend me (or at least hint where I could get an
info) the reputable tobacco stores where I could find
quality pipe for the beginner (who's starting his
collection - that's me!) in Manhattan or Brooklyn. I
would go for the seconds or estate pipes to begin
with. Did you hear of any flea markets where they sell
pipes?? It's a pity Greenwich Village stores near NYU,
where I am studying, make an emphasis on different
smoking substances (and pipes) - you know...

I would also appreciate any info if they can
fix/renovate pipes in these stores.

Again, I found plenty of useful info in your site
already - and I am so greatful!You're doing a great
job - thanks a million,

Very truly, Andre

hi all,

i was just wanting to bring everyone down.  not really, but i would
like feedback on a serious subject.  i was wondering who knows of
others or have personally experienced ill effects from pipe smoking.
i know a few people that smoke pipes, but have not heard any problems.
i also am in the anesthesia field, and i talk with many surgeons who
don't really see any pipe related illness.  so, what i would like to
hear are the stories of mouth cancer, lip cancer, and so on.  i know
that this is not fun, but i would like to know the truth on what could
be out there.  anyway, i actually hope not to hear of any (but only if
there are not any stories).  Thanks a ton!!!

Dear All,
As a new member it is great to have a place on the web that gathers
and provides such a great variety of information on pipes and all the
various aspects of the hobby.  I enjoyed David Wood's recent article
where he relates his interest in pipes to his early reading of The
Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. From my earliest years, I also loved the
smell and look of pipes. Over the years I purchased a few and tried
them for fun. But with all the anti-tobacco propoganda, it was
something that was "not appropriate".  Then I became involved in Civil
War Reenacting a few years ago.  Here pipes are very "period" and
"most appropriate". It is a great opportunity to enjoy your pipes
while portraying a soldier of the period and teaching others about the
civil war experience.

I began with a bent GDB, a Savinelli bent and then, when I was asked
to portray Ellis Spear, as an officer with the 20th Maine, I had one
made by Peter Evans, who was reproducing pipes as shown in the movie
"Gettysburg." It took lots of practice, but I have now mastered the
art of holding my pipe in my teeth, waving your sword in one hand and
running across a field while "those people" in gray" shoot at you.  As
recruiter I am always looking for more soldiers and large, simple,
briar, pipes such as they would have used in the war period. I have
also come to enjoy the perfection of Dunhill away from the battle

I wanted to share what I think is a hidden gem here in the Northern
San Francisco Bay Area. Recently, I "rediscovered" my Savinelli bent
that I had forgotten for perhaps a year.  I could not think of where I
had gotten it. Then I saw that it was marked "Baker St. Napa, Ca."  I
remembered that it had come from a small shop called "Baker
St. Tobacco and Clock Shoppe" at 3053 Jefferson St. in Napa.  They
also have a Shoppe in St. Helena, Ca.  It smokes great and a great
feel. I was curious to see if they had anything similar to it with a
larger bowl.  So I stopped by the shoppe last week.
I was delighted to find a great selection of pipes, tobacco and
accessories. I found a good selection of Savinellis, specially made
for the Baker St. Shoppes at great prices. If this sounds of interest
to you you can contact them at 707) 252-2766

Steve -

Thanks for a wonderful forum.  Please add me to your e-mail list for
the digest. I'm a 42 year-old pipesman from the New York City area and
I'd like to relate a recent pipe smoking experience that still has me

Late Friday, after a night on the town, my buddy Peter and I found
ourselves at Grand Central Station with a 20-minute lag before the
departure of our train home.  We decided to stroll across the street
to one of those ever-convenient Irish sports bars for a quick beer.
As Peter fought his way up to the bartender, I settled near the front
window, packed my pipe and began to fire 'er up.

As I puffed deeply, I noticed an attractive couple in their
mid-thirties smiling at me and gesturing enthusiastically in my
direction.  I assumed they were focusing on the televised ball game
above my head.  I continued to coax my pipe to life.

A strange thing happened next. Through the haze I was creating, it
became apparent that the man and woman were smiling at ME and focusing
intently on my pipe.  I nodded and smiled back at them as I tamped and
began a second light.  In the few seconds that followed, the man made
his way over to me from the bar, all the while beckoning me toward
him.  "That smells soooo good," he said appreciatively, as if he
wanted to crawl down into my pipe. "Is it vanilla?"

I explained that my tobacco was a dark cavendish blended by my
tobacconist across the street.  And that people tell me it has a faint
scent of coffee or mocha.  "Vanilla" was a first!  As the man's
girlfriend (wife?) approached us, I asked him if he was a pipe smoker
himself.  The man shook his head no, almost apologetically.

The woman smiled at me.  The kind of smile you reserve for an old
friend.  "That just smells soooo good," she said.  "And it's
so rare to see a man in a bar smoking a pipe."  She had a nostalgic
look that prompted me to ask her if someone in her past had been a
pipe smoker.

"Oh, sure," she answered.  "My Grandfather was a pipe smoker.  And I
always loved the aroma.  You know... I have one of my Grandfather's
old pipes at home and it STILL smells like him."

The man continued to smile and focus quietly on my pipe, almost in
fascination while I explained to the woman that, strangely enough, MY
love of pipes began when I inherited MY Grandfather's pipe,
many years ago.  My appreciation of that rather ordinary Peterson pipe
lead to an interest in collecting and displaying pipes of all types.
When I began smoking them, it seemed like a natural progression.

The man had not stopped grinning, as if entranced by my pipe and my
story.  About then, my buddy arrived with my beer.  And so, excusing
myself from the couple's appreciative gaze, I wished the them a good

I can't help but wonder if we have another proud NY pipesman amongst
us this week!

Dear Mr Masticola, 
I'm not myself a member of your organisation, but I noticed on the list of
new members in Pipes Digest #280 -- April 1, 2002, the name of Joe C. Hays
I met Joe, briefly, about 25 years ago, in Singapore and Malaysia. 
I have fond memories of him and I had wondered what he had done since. (Now
i know he's still smoking pipes!)  I would like to send him a message of
greeting and best wishes. 
If there is any way that you could either forward to him my email, or
provide me with an email address, so that I can send him a message, I would
be most grateful.

Hi Steve...

I just submitted a request for a subscription form to Pipes
Digest. Unfortunately, after being an avid pipe smoker for more than
35 years, the Doctor has informed me I must quit. I recently had a
triple bypass, and am diabetic, and they say it's just too risky.

I want to sell my beautiful collection of pipes, and would like to
place an ad in Pipes Digest, but am not sure how to go about it
without subscribing to the magazine.  Have you any suggestions?

Subject: Canadian indifference

Hi, Steve!

This is my first contribution to the "Digest"...long overdue. In the
April offering of the "Digest" I read, with much interest, Marty
Pulver's comments re. the indifference of Canadian pipe smokers. I was
pleased that,finally, someone in the "colonies" gave Canada a wakeup
call. A few years ago I submitted an article to "The Pipe Collector"
Vol.5 No.4, Smoke Rings Across the Border. This was an attempt to
establish more dialog between Canadian and American pipe hobbiests. I
received several responses from brethern in the States, but not one
Canadian responded. Ergo, I am in complete agreement with Marty with
the exception of The Canadian Pipe Smokers'Club; these guys do keep
the fires burning. Here I must say, saddly, that western Canada is a
virtual wasteland for pipe smoking enthusiasts. Last May I came up
with the idea of presenting a Pipe Fest in Calgary. I contacted Mike
Gluckler (Briar Blues in Vancouver B.C.) whom I've known for several
years, and he graciously agreed to help me get this off the
ground. Mike will be joining me on September 20th & 21st for Calgary's
first ever Pipe Fest. He'll be bringing with him a selection of "knock
yer socks off" pipes, a selection of estate pipes,and several samples
of G.L. Pease tobaccos. Of course, this could never have come to
fruition without the cooperation and foresight of Alex Emslie and
Shawn Hansen of Cavendish & Moore's Tobacconist in Calgary. We're all
hoping that this might be the beginning of a deeper appreciation and
understanding of "The Gentle Art". Thanks, Marty for putting a fire
under us, and thank you Mike for joining us as our special guest. Wish
us luck!  Smoke in peace........

Sacramento. This was reportedly the favorite brand of C.S. Lewis, but
I found it to be so strong that it literally made me ill. (Perhaps I

Hi, my pipe collecting/smoking friends!

Just to let you know that, after the Columbus Pipe Show (which was a great 
show, by the way), I have several pipes newly listed on the "Pipes for 
Sale" page. Let me know if any there interest you.

My display table in Columbus attracted a lot of attention and I have placed 
a slide show of the table on the web site for those of you who didn't get a 
chance to see it. Just click "Pipe Show Table" under "Pipe Collection" on 
the menu to see it. (If "Pipe Show Table" doesn't show in the menu, press 
[Shift] while you click your [Reload] browser button.) Be sure to notice 
the pipe ads on the wall behind the table!

I will have a table for the Chicago show May 17-18, 2003. It will be the 
only other place at which my collection will be exhibited. If you want to 
stay at Pheasant Run Resort, the show venue, better make reservations 
pretty soon - it sells out early for this event. Mention the pipe show for 
a discounted room rate when you call 1-800-999-3319.  I hope you can come.

Thank you for subscribing me to the Pipes Digest!

I have two questions as a fairly new pipe smoker:
1) how long does it take to develop a "discriminating palate"? I've been
trying variations of black cavendish
and to be honest, I find it very difficult to tell any of them apart. Will
this change with time?

2) my local tobaccanist has a blend called "private reserve", which is jet
black. It's the only kind I've tried
that has ever given me a "buzz". I'm trying to determine if this is the
nicotine content, or a kind called
burley that I heard does that, or ? Also, what name brands might give this
same effect?

I have a Pipe Tobaco Humidor that was put out by the Briggs Tobacco
company, which is no longer in business.  I am not sure of the year,
except that it is some time prior to 1980.  I am pretty sure it is
much older.  It is a keg barrel shaped humidor with the company name
imprinted on the side of the barrel. 

I am hoping someone out there can give me a rough estimate to it's
value.  It stands approximately 8 to 9 inches high anf has a diameter
of approximately 5 to 6 inches at it's widest point.  It has a rich

Hello all,

I've come to really enjoy savinelli pipes, especially the autograph series.  
However I am a bit sceptical about the new "Balsa System" that all of the 
newer savinelli pipes are equiped with.  Like most, I'm not at all interested 
in any kind of filters in my pipes.  However, I have heard some good things 
about the Balsa inserts, of course I have also heard negative things as well. 
 I'm curious as to what some of my fellow briar smokers feel about the "Balsa 
System".  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

The risks of smoking are greatly exaggerated

  The risks of smoking are greatly exaggerated 
  Wednesday November 20, 2002

Too much is made of the 4,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke. We're told
these chemicals are so harmful that they are responsible for the
deaths of millions worldwide. Untold in this "war on tobacco" is that
each of the plants we consume consists of an equally daunting
thousands of chemicals many of which are recognized poisons or
suspected cancer-causing agents.   Cayenne peppers, carrots and
strawberries each contain six suspected carcinogens; onions,
grapefruit and tomato each contain five -- some the same as the seven
suspected carcinogens found in tobacco. 

High-heat cooking creates yet more dietary carcinogens from otherwise
harmless chemical constituents. 

Sure, these plant chemicals are measured in infinitesimal amounts. An
independent study calculated 222,000 smoking cigarettes would be
needed to reach unacceptable levels of benzo(a)pyrene. One million
smoking cigarettes would be needed to produce unacceptable levels of
toluene. To reach these estimated danger levels, the cigarettes must
be smoked simultaneously and completely in a sealed 20-square-foot
room with a nine-foot ceiling. 

Many other chemicals in tobacco smoke can also be found in normal
diets. Smoking 3,000 packages of cigarettes would supply the same
amount of arsenic as a nutritious 200 gram serving of sole. 

Half a bottle of now healthy wine can supply 32 times the amount of
lead as one pack of cigarettes. The same amount of cadmium obtained
from smoking eight packs of cigarettes can be enjoyed in half a pound
of crab. 

That's one problem with the anti-smoking crusade. The risks of smoking
are greatly exaggerated. So are the costs. 

An in-depth analysis of 400,000 U.S. smoking-related deaths by
National Institute of Health mathematician Rosalind Marimont and
senior fellow in constitutional studies at the Cato Institute Robert
Levy identified a disturbing number of flaws in the methodology used
to estimate these deaths. Incorrectly classifying some diseases as
smoking-related and choosing the wrong standard of comparison each
overstated deaths by more than 65 per cent. 

Failure to control for confounding variables such as diet and exercise
turned estimates more into a computerized shell game than reliable
estimates of deaths. 

Marimont and Levy also found no adjustments were made to the costs of
smoking resulting from the benefits of smoking -- reduced Alzheimer's
and Parkinson's disease, less obesity, depression and breast cancer. 

If it were possible to estimate 45,000 smoking-related Canadian deaths
as some health activists imagine -- and Marimont, Levy and other
respected researchers think it is not -- then applying an identical
methodology to other lifestyle choices would yield 57,000 Canadian
deaths due to lack of exercise and 73,000 Canadian deaths blamed on
poor diets. 

If both the chemical constituents of tobacco smoke and the numbers of
smoking-related deaths are overstated -- and clearly they are -- how
can we trust the claim that tobacco smoke is harmful to non-smokers? 

The 1993 bellwether study by the Environmental Protection Agency that
selectively combined the results of a number of previous studies and
found a small increase in lung cancer risk in those exposed to
environmental tobacco smoke has been roundly criticized as severely
flawed by fellow researchers and ultimately found invalid in a court
of law. 

In 1998, the World Health Organization reported a small, but not
statistically significant, increase in the risk of lung cancer in
non-smoking women married to smokers. 

Despite these invalidating deficiencies, the Environmental Protection
Agency and World Health Organization both concluded tobacco smoke
causes lung cancer in non-smokers. 

One wonders whether the same conclusions would have been announced if
scientific fraud were a criminal offence. 

When confronted with the scientific uncertainty, the inconsistency of
results and the incredible misrepresentation of present-day knowledge,
those seeking to abolish tobacco invoke a radical interpretation of
the Precautionary Principle: "Where potential adverse effects are not
fully understood, the activity should not proceed." 

This unreasonable exploitation of the ever-present risks of living
infiltrates our schools to indoctrinate trusting and eager minds with
the irrational fears of today. Instead of opening minds to the
wondrous complexities of living, it opens the door to peer ridicule
and intolerance while cultivating the trendy cynics of tomorrow. 

If we continue down this dangerous path of control and prohibition
based on an unreliable or remote chance of harm, how many personal
freedoms will remain seven generations from now?
