    Welcome to the forum Brandon! Just wanted to add, do not overlook MM Cobs to add more good smoking pipes to your rotation for cheap.

    I second Missouri Meerschaum Cobs, but also Ebay is fantastic. You can get some wonderful smoking pipes for $10 that are already broken in and, with a little elbow grease, can look as good as new. There are a lot of older Grabows, Mastercraft, LHS, and Kaywoodies that are going to smoke far better than a new $20-30 pipe. There are also a lot of pipes from defunct pipe companies on Ebay that go cheaply because nobody knows about them anymore but can be great smokers, but there your taking a gamble.

    badbusinessman offers sage words. One more brand to watch for: Custombilt (or, if a really old one, "Custom-Bilt.") I see them go for 15-20$, and they're great pipes.

    For my money, EBay is a great go to spot for good deals on pipes of your not looking to break the bank.

    MM Cob pipes in my opinion are near perfect smokers. The first couple of smokes aren't too good but after that they are great! One of them I have had for around 10 years.

    IF you seek on eBay, a couple brands to watch are Willard and Lee - these are forgotten brands from the 50s and 60s. Mostly pretty decent and you can get 'em for 10 bucks.
