Feel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.

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:

Welp my gf has been getting upset with me for smelling like smoke when I have a nighttime pipe before bed. I need to hit her with some facts about pipe tobacco. She thinks that pipes and cigarettes are basically the same devil, and I know this is not true having smoked both, but I had trouble explaining it. Of course I will smoke my pipe if I feel like it, but I must admit that I am less likely to enjoy it if I am guilted by friends or family at the end of the day because they haven't done any research and think I'm bound to die from cancer now.
Has anyone ever known someone that had some health problems due to pipe smoking? My uncle has smoked a pipe constantly for 30+ years and he's in pretty good shape. I can not think of any friend that has a relative w pipe-related problems or cancers. Is this just propaganda about the pipe? I feel like I can't win because there has been so much against cigarette smoke the past decade or so that everyone fucking hates tobacco now and refuses to believe that there is a difference in pipes and cigarettes...

All I want is to find a Cherry pipe tobacco that smells like the stuff my neighbor used to smoke when I was a kid, even my mom who hates the smell of smoke liked the smell of that stuff. It smelled mostly of cherry, a hint of vanilla and somehow still had a hint of whiskey or bourbon to it, If I could find that blend, I can die happy.
>>
>>1158813
The most reliable study the FDA goes by found that mortality for pipe smokers who smoke less than 10 pipes per day is like 1.02 standard deviations. Negligible.

More interesting: people who smoke a pipe live, on average, 2 years longer than non pipe smokers. Now realize that category includes cigarette smokers, but still.

If you're having a pipe every other day or even every day, you probably have other risks in your life that are greater potential for causing you illness. Like working a sedentary job, drinking more than you should, getting too much sun, too much exposure to vehicle exhaust etc.

Is it 'safe'? No. There IS a danger to it. Is it the same as smoking and inhaling a pack of smokes a say? Absolutely not. Practice good oral hygiene and don't combine alcohol with tobacco (strips the protection off your mucous membranes), and just limit your enjoyment to a reasonable frequency.
>>
Are any of you addicted to pipe smoking?
>>
>>1158854
I just went for a week or so without a pipe. Other weeks I've has two a day or one every day.

I'm sure you could smoke enough to feel withdrawal but I can't picture myself having that much free time. When I feel a 'craving', I'm wanting my quiet half hour to myself outside at night with that warm bowl in my hand, and the rich flavors of whatever is in it. The nicotine for me is just enough to be a little relaxing or give me a clear head.

Are you sure she's upset with you about the possible cancer risk and not just smelling like tobacco smoke? Wear a hat so it doesn't get in your hair so much, wash your face and hands after smoking, then see if she still complains.
The talk about cancer can wait until after you stop screwing up her sleep by smelling like something she dislikes.

Did do research if you mean googling this shit. There's hardly anything online about pipe smoking health problems.

Nobody has piped in yet.

Well, the problem is you're asking for anecdotal evidence and wanting to use it in your favor vs. Far more reliable information collected from a large sample size. You're hurting your case and I'm trying to help you not do that.

But since you're asking anyways, I personally know four other people who smoke a pipe, some of whom also smoke cigars and one who smokes cigarettes, and none of them have issues so far. They span 30-45ish.

Continue getting mouth cancer for all I care. Just stop promoting it to other people as something good. Just because cigarette smoking is vastly worse than this shit, it doesn't mean that pipes are somehow alright. They're still carcinogenic and harmful to your health.

Maybe do us a favor and keep smoking your death leaves pal.
Walk into a cancer ward and ask around if you want some anecdotal evidence, you dense bastard.
Or maybe just ask an actual doctor??
Sounds like your fishing for answers that fit your own narrative.
>>
>>1159061

Then you're a fucking idiot. The entire point of fine tobacco is to enjoy complex and subtle flavour blends. Drawing benzine vapours over your tobacco as you light it is the easiest way I can think of to totally ruin it. There's a reason you use a match with the sulphur totally burned away to light a cigar or pipe.

you probably dont even fully understand that word do you bud, being alive causes cancer.

i disagree. there are many lighters out there, i have tasted no difference between gas/fluid/heated coil etc etc. if you are really worried, do what some do with a cigar, wait a bit and then blow some smoke through

personally got more bad taste from shitty butane lighters because you end up huffing so much gas! ha i joke i joke

are Davidoff white tipped matches really THAT much better then normal matches, no lol, if you were blind you wouldn't know the difference
in my opinion

I don't see anyone here pushing tobacco on people. It's literally never happened in the past 10 threads. We get people asking about it and we provide honest answers about why we enjoy it.

Like anything enjoyable you have to measure the risks vs what you get from it. For us we are willing to accept a very marginal increase in cancer risk for the net gain of enjoyment, and other people should be free to make that same assessment.

I do the same thing when I go rock climbing, or take a road trip, or go backpacking. Risk vs reward.

Enjoyed in moderation and without the cocktail of cigarette additives, and not inhaled, tobacco has marginal risk.

Assess your environment for the following things:
>Synthetic carpet
>furniture that isn't 20 years old
>fabric softener
>any mattress that isn't made of latex with all natural outer covering

I'm going to guess you can check off most of that list. You are constantly swimming in a vat of carcinogens and endocrine disruptors 24/7, but you get up in arms about someone smoking a pipe literally once or twice a week? You've swallowed alarmist overtures that have washed over from cigarettes which are genuinely dangerous due to additives, quantity consumed, and most critically being inhaled.

I'm going to do whatever the fuck I want and so should everyone else.
>>
>>1159092
Love that collection mads. Saved it from a past thread.

I do notice a difference between a burned match and a lighter, but I can't tell much difference between a zippo and a bic. I prefer matches.

I will say I try to light with the 'tip' of the flame when using a lighter vs. Getting close with it, most of the gases have burned off comparatively at that point in the flame.

>>1159078
Fuck you faggot. I'll light my Prince Albert with a Mapp gas torch if I want and still enjoy it immensely.

Here is an /out/ with pipe post hopefully. This pipe was found at an archaeological dig. It is a mid 19th century ceramic pipe. It survived unbroken buried in a house cellar in a farm field for probably 75-100 years. It is one of two found whole (the stems are gone though).

I know you Europeans are going to laugh but it's fairly old for the Midwest.

What are some ways to flavor my homegrown tobacco so that it smells more aromatic?

Already tried vanilla. Heard that single malt whiskey is good.
>>
>>1159297
Whiskey or rum would be a good start. I have read you should spritz it over the tobacco with a sprayer bottle in controlled amounts, adding as needed so you don't overpower it.

What did you grow and how did you cure it? I plan to try this one day.

Yeah, I got one from a bag of MM seconds and fitted a straightened diplomat stem onto it for a longer stem. Can't take any pics atm but I'd def reccomend it (even with the dagner name) as a relatively cheap poker, as I liked it so much I bought a second with the short bit which is made of acrylic and much better than the usual plastic bits MM pipes come with.

They probably remember some of the old OTC cherry tobaccos like Paladin.
Those are still around, and smell great if you can smoke them right, but they don’t taste as great, or at least not for me.
Lots of modern cherry aromatics out now (even the OTCs) are better tasting than many of the older ones. Casey Jones’ Last Ride, Cult Blood Red Moon, CAO Cherry Bomb, MAC Baren 7 Seas Red, and Captain black cherry are all pretty good. For bulk, Lane Very Cherry is the basis for a lot of pipe shop cherry blends.

What's a good tobacco to start up smoking again?

I've smoked a lot of pipe years ago, but that was without enjoying that flavor of the tobacco, but mostly for the coolness of smoking a pipie (I was young and dumb), but now I want to pick it up again.

This time I want to taste it all, I want to enjoy the hell out of smoking a pipe, and I want sit by my campfire in the forest and ponder whatever comes to mind.

Got any tips?

I'd go for something like Luxury Bullseye Flake, McClelland Dominican Glory, Three nuns, or Frog Morton's Cellar. They all have interesting and distinct flavor profiles and are pretty easy to smoke.
>>
>>1160017
Go for full-strength, all-tobacco blends:
Dunhill 965, Royal Yacht, Nightcap, Escudo, Tabac Manil Semois, Frog Morton, Orlik Golden sliced, Three Nuns or whatever. Get your pipe, fill it up to the top, and smoke it slow and easy. By the end of the bowl you will see what the fuss is about.

Fresh tobacco is better than not. Slower smoking is better than faster. Packing your pipe properly will take practice to get the hang of, but looser is usually better than tighter to start with. Don’t be afraid to use your tamper-a lot of the time you can save a relight or two by tamping at the right time.

>>1160776
They do exist, plus some brands are thinner than others.
Long’s, for example, are thinner than dill’s, and on some of my meerschaums this matters a lot.
Also, lots of people make tapered pipe cleaners with one end thinner than the other. These are really nice for cleaning things like the P-lip mouthpieces on Peterson pipes.
>>
>>1161673
Looks good, are you freehanding that or do you have a lathe?
Some lighter wood or bone/horn would look really good there.
>>
>>1161673
Why don’t you just sand down the end of the tenon on the mouthpiece until the gap goes away?
>>
>>
>>1162045
Because that changes the geometry of the overall pipe. I can push the tenon all the way into the briar, but it makes the briar section look too stubby compared to the stem. I had a rough idea that I wanted to make a bulldog, but I didn't really plan out the dimensions, just doing what looks the best as I go.
I do have lathes, but no way to really clamp a block into them. I guess pipe makers have a 2 jaw chuck, mine are 3 jaw. So I shaped this with a bandsaw and the rest by chisel and file. I am looking for a cheap 2 jaw chuck to purchase.
Yes I will be adding the 2 grooves on the bowl.

Yes. I used some le reddit threads as reference, and ordered from 4noggins. The average advice seemed to be to keep it under 7oz, and under $75 total. Supposedly beyond that the risk of getting taxed increases. I got just shy of 7oz for $50CAD (including shipping and conversion). Beats the living shit of local prices.

Teeth hurt after smoking a lot over a few weeks each day. Should I get a lighter pipe? Less clenching? Less smoking per day?

I usually smoke 2-3 times a day at least. I drink hot coffee daily.
>>
>>1163979
Less clenching, a lighter pipe and a softer vulcanite stem all help to ease jaw pain.

Less clenching, hold the pipe in the mouth, or clench less strongly.

Is there any reason what so ever beside aesthetics to use something other then the Czech tool?

No, not really; some of the pipe knives are good for reaming or having something to cut flakes and such with, but otherwise, the Czech tool is king.

Thanks dudes. I tried that and i had significantly less teeth aches.

I like a regular pipe nail. Just as light, more handy, not as fiddly as a Czech tool and has just the things I use. Plus its weight is about perfect for a tamper-there’s no extra effort required when I need to tamp.

>>1163979
don't use your teeth, youll hurt them.

They're fine as a tamper but sometimes you get a blockage in the pipe or you've packed a little too tightly. A quick push in the shank with the rod part of the Czech tool and you're away.

Higher risk of mouth/tongue/etc. cancer. But I think stress hormone really impacts cancer risk, and pipe smoking is extremely laid back compared to cigarette smoking. Taking regular time to slow down and relax while smoking a pipe might help reduce stress hormone, and possibly help offset the increased risk of mouth and tongue cancers from the tobacco smoke.

Just bought this beauty.

It is from an small scale manufacturer from Germany and every pipe is a unique design.

Always liked the Churchwarden designs and I think they taste way better since the smoke cools down before reaching your mouth (also prevents tongue burn).
I already got a super cheap chinese one for 10 bucks to try the long design and I liked it. But you can really taste the cheap plastic and colors that were used so I don't smoke it any more.

I don't care if I look like a Lord Of The Rings LARPing fagot, I honestly think they taste better than the smaller ones.

Also I bought a small selection of new tobacco:

- Mac Baren Plum Cake 50g Pouch

- Kentucky Bird 50g Pouch

- Dan Tobacco Torben Dansk Blue Note 50g Pouch

- W.O. Larsen Classic Unique (formerly Simply Unique) 5g sample

- W.O. Larsen Indigo 5g sample

- Dan Tobacco S.V.H. 5g sample

Any experiences with those tobaccos?

Maybe I'm just not used to flake tobacco, but when I have Orlik Golden Sliced, I find a single full bowl lasts me on average 2.5 hours at a normal pace. Whereas ribbon/shag cut stuff like 965 or Lane 1Q tend to last 1.5h tops in the same pipe, if I really take my time. I assume the tobacco density accounts for the difference? I don't rub out the flakes all the way to individual strands or anything; I just break it up so it's reasonably easy to jam in the bowl.
>>
>>1164220
I use my little Swiss Army knife to clean out the ash and my thumb to tamp, I've just never bought a Czech tool so don't use one!
>>
>>1164926
President Johnson was a known southern sympathizer and was not representative of the union as a whole in any way. Lee started the surrender not as an act of patriotism but rather as a necessity because Richmond was sacked and the union army blocked their way to the rest of the confederate army in North Carolina. Lee surrendered to save himself from death in battle like a coward.

I like the taste of tobacco; I don't want to spend money on cigars of a humidor as I'm not smoking every day, every week or even every month and I smoke in private with no one else around. There's no addiction, and I'm not seen by anyone. No one knows I smoke pipes. How is that pretentious or weak willed?

And again, the very idea that I shouldn't do something because 'someone else might do it' is utterly ridiculous. I am not a moral guardian or an enforcer of your tastes or opinions and quite frankly, you're not a paragon of moral superiority or judge of behaviour. You're arrogant and snobbish and far more pretentious than anyone in this thread.

You're really showing yourself up to be a complete twat.

I too was underage when I began piping. A good thing to try is to smoke different herbal tea leaves, and on a couple occasions, I even cut and cured tobacco that was left in a field after a harvest. As for buying pipes, amazon doesn't ask for ID, and you can have it shipped to a PO box or an amazon locker. Making your own pipe is also a good way to go.

I have the shire and wizard. They have nice vulcanite stems (factory made) that are much better than the plastic. Shire is really nice for going on a leisurely stroll around the park / woods, while the wizard is more for sitting around.

Lots of lamp oils are a mixture of purified kerosene and paraffin oil, some are just highly purified kerosene, and some are just paraffin oil. Dead flame lamps and oil candles use paraffin oil because those burn slower and cooler, and paraffin oil has almost no smell, usually even less than wax candles. The difference is paraffin oil is made with hydrocarbon solids that are dissolved in solvents, mineral oil or something like that. Paraffin oil will sludge over time as the solvent dries up, it's not good to use in cold or hot blast lanterns like Madmartigan's there.

The problem is most kerosene has a flashpoint way too low, like 20ºC, and most paraffin oil has a flashpoint way too high, like 200ºC. For a cold blast lantern you want between 50ºC and 80ºC or so. It can be hard to find, I mix kerosene and paraffin oil and it seems to work well. You don't want a slow gluggy wick burning dim paraffin oil but you also don't want the stinky stink of pure kerosene, and with that low flashpoint if you drop the lantern it'll explode. When you drop an oil lantern with the correct fuel it should go out, not blow up.

Cheers anons. I’ve been trying to make eggnog from scratch for a few years now. This year I finally got it nailed I think. It was all enjoyed within a day by the relatives. Got fairly tipsy too!

I was able to smoke on a white Christmas and come inside to a cozy fire and eggnog. Can’t get much better than that.

Also, our Frosty was able to get his pipe on too! We haven’t had a White Christmas in years here (Western Washington) We were really excited.

Though my MacBaron Vintage Syrian tin ran out(my favorite) and to my dismay I discovered it was discontinued. Something about their Latakia source due to the crisis over there.

I’ve been trying to find something not sweet and very smoky like the V.S. I don’t really care for any sweet stuff unless it’s a special occasion.

Any recommendations?

English blends are what you want.
Try some Three nuns, Dunhill 965, or even Super Value English mixture if you’re on a budget.
Nice and flavorful and don’t bite nearly as much as aromatics do.

If you're starting out on English blends, I'd go for Dunhill Standard or Squadron Leader first.

While both are great, most of the famous English blends are good enough in their own right to be their own introductions.
Even now, there are more than enough quality blends to go around out there.

I've been looking at Falcons recently and had a thought of how you could squeeze essentially something the length of a large churchwarden into a conventionally sized pipe.

Essentially, rather than just the single stem, the pipe would look like an organ at each end; a central tube with two tubes in it and two tubes at the side. These would be sealed at either end with a plastic or metal attachment to ensure the smoke didn't escape while allowing easy access to the pipes for cleaning.

As you can see; the smoke would travel down the central tube, back up the two other tubes towards the bowl and back down the stem; this would basically mean that the smoke would be traveling the length of three conventional pipes in the space of a single pipe, cooling the smoke and allowing it to dry out.

The engineering would be pretty simple; at it's core, its basically three pipes soldered together, two pipes which slot into the connectors, room for any mouthpiece one would like a connector with which one could screw in a Falcon bowl. One could, potentially even make this out of briar or other woods, although aesthetically it'd be a bit unorthodox while this would, at least, stay close to the Falcon-esque look.

The sage was from the part of the Los Padres that recently burned up in all the fires so it tastes a bit different from kitchen sage. I can only compare it to cigarette tobacco because that’s all I have had access to, and I’d say it’s more mild than it. If it’s dried long enough (which is easy in CA) it can stay lighted and retain some flavor. All I can say is you have to like the taste of sage. I bet you could modify it like they do to pipe tobacco and add flavors.
>>
>>1172628

Dude. I can see you have an interesting hobby but seriously...

Please treat yourself to even a cheap Missouri Meerschaum cob pipe and some Lane 1-Q tobacco. Not kitchen herbs or cigarette tobacco. And not a cob left over from your dinner, but a real cob from the type that is grown specifically for it. Or tell me you have before. Looking at what you're smoking and what you're smoking it out of is like rubbing salt in my eyes and I'm actually feeling bad for you right now.

Just ordered a tin of Ashton Artisan's Blend, and about to order a cob for /comfyout/ time.

Ordered the Ahston blend because I prefer the full body taste of a cigar, and apparently this is a pretty full tasting blend. Carter Hall and Prince Albert were getting boring.

Anyone have good recommendations for full body tasting tobaccos?

>>1172262
I've been smoking my pipe for ~5 months now without a tamper.

Real question, does it really improve your smoke?
>>
>>1173482
The tamp is used to push the ember down to fresh tobacco. If you tamp you basically don't need to re-light nearly as much. Idk how you even smoke through a bowl without a tamper
>>
>>1173482

Yes. Try the Lane 1-Q. It is one of the most if not the most popular by far for a reason.

A tamper will improve your smoking experience. A roofing nail with a flat large head or even a golfing tee works great, I see people using these often.
>>
>>1173309

Purchase this stuff online. You can buy a decent Missouri Meerschaum cob on Amazon, tobacco at online sites as well. Neither one well require age verification and you can get both for less than $20. if you think what you're smoking now is fun wait until you get some decent stuff, your smoking experience will vastly improve!
>>
>>1173482
Yes; it basically keeps the density of the tobacco as you originally packed the pipe and keep the cherry close to the unburnt tobacco.

>>1173482
I do not reccomend an aromatic like 1-Q nor a Latakia blend. You will probably be disappointed by trying to chase a cigar taste with cigar leaf blends, though some of them are good.

Non-aromatic Virginia, perique, Kentucky, burley blends in flake form if possible with a strength rating of medium and above would be my first suggestions.

Thats pretty much 100% dead. Its missing a good chunk of wood. Definitely a neat piece otherwise though.

Isn't there some way he could make a custom shank and glue it in? That part shouldn't be subject to huge amount of heat so he won't be inhaling resin fumes or anything. Just seal it with wax or whatever pipes are finished with, and it will be an awesome looking driftwood pipe.

I just can't get into cobs; plus I don't live in the US so a small pocket briar costs the same; if I wanted a similar smoking experience, I could coat the bowl in plaster of paris.

He could, but honestly, it'll take a lot of work to get that pipe working and it would be very susceptible to burn out.

Might be worth a try; perhaps reline the pipe with something and go from there, but honestly, it seems like more trouble than its worth.

Maybe it is the PG in my cheap tobacco. I had a similar reaction when I first tried out vaping, I heard PG can effect people. After a few days I stopped having a reaction, but I have since given up vaping completely.
Anyone smoke both cheap and luxury tobacco and have a comment?
>>
>>1174505
I only really smoke English blends from some small blenders, none of which use PG in their casings. I'd grab a tin of something which doesn't have any PG and some which does, smoke the two a few days apart and compare.

For where I live, the cheap stuff costs the same as the 'expensive' stuff, so I just buy the nice stuff. Haven't had any experience with OTC or cheaper tobacco aside from a few cigarettes when I was younger.

I say you either glue in another shank, or cut down the existing shank and drill a new mortise. Even if it turns out not to smoke well, at least it will look nice on the shelf.

>>1174706
Barely any of the posts are about weed though; almost all are on topic.

>>1174703
My suggestion would be to fit the mouth piece directly into the pipe, perhaps picking an extra-long one to work with and try and make it so the pipe slides over the mouthpiece.
>>
>>1174713
He would still have to cut down the shank so the mouthpiece would actually sit flush. The way it is now, the tenon would have to be long as shit if he were just to stuff a stem in the existing shank without any modification, because the shank is broken off at an angle. If you cut it straight, but still as far out as possible, you can put a normal stem in and it will look good.

Well, I admit my idea was a bit unconventional.

Here's a sketch of how I thought it'd look; the idea was to preserve that cracked, worn portion of the stem.
>>
>>1174723
Ah, I see. That would definitely look the best, but custom shaping the stem would be a nightmare.
>>
>>1174729
It's be worth it though; the easiest way would be to carefully file or drill out space in the stem and put a wooden insert in, perhaps using plaster of paris as filler/strengthening. Then drill out the drawhole and the space for the mouthpiece. Pick a stem that fits the sides and perhaps sand it down to fit.
