I just wanted to introduce myself. I've been a pipe smoker for two years. In fact, pipe smoking was my first step into tobacco. I tried cigarettes and cigars but the pipe is my first love. I'm one of the only pipe smokers on my campus. I've seen one or two but never talked to them. But someday, I'm going to make pipe smoking much more popular. My first pipe was a Benton straight billiard, I sold it to my friend just last year. My first nice pipe was a Savinelli Antique Shell and is my favorite pipe. I later bought a corn cob just to add more pipes to my rotation. Recently, I bought a Hilson Avanti Larso estate pipe from the Tinderbox (the original one ). My favorite types of tobacco are English and Virginia tobaccos. I hope I enjoy this forum as much as all of you do. From what I have seen, I like it.
