Alright, Well i have smoked my buddies pipe 5-10 times over the last month and finally decided to get one of my own. I just Purchased Donegal Rocky (B10) P-Lip Peterson.. I read alot on the internet where people say when your a beginner get a Corn cob to try out before you buy a nicer pipe. But since i already knew i liked pipe smoking i jumped right in to a briar pipe. But after being on this forum for only 2 days ive already noticed alot of long time pipe smokers have corn cobs. I was reading on this forum about some of the FROG tabacco and "David Emond" posted a pic of some FROG tabacco and his corn cob pipe. I absolutly loved this pic and the pipe and already knew what my next pipe would be. A MM CG straight pipe. His looks even better than they do on the MM site! So my next question now is. I don't want to get uber serious too quickly about pipe smoking(what i mean is i want to learn more) but i would like to do things right. Are corn cobs great for trying blends and other new tabacco before you put them in say your main pipe?(now i know most users on here have multiple pipes) But what I mean as a main pipe is. My peterson is the only pipe i will have for the next 4 months or so just because of money. So i guess what I am asking is I don't have the money to do what my buddy does and have a Pipe Specifically for Peterson's Sherlock homles toabacoo and then other pipes he has for certain Styles only. But should I smoke whatever out of both my peterson and corn cob since I am knew to pipe smoking or should I use each one for different stuff. Thanks so much for any advice. Hopefully i wasn't to confusing.
