Greeting all, I am a 28 y/o who has been smoking pipes for about as long as I legally could. I have visited various forums lurking and such finally decided to join one and post. I am not a pipe/tobacco snob in any manner. I have always loved the smells and looks of a pipe, I mainly remember older men at auctions and garage sells and such smoking them and LOVED the smell, my grandpa used to smoke pipes but had moved to cigarettes long before I came along. I only knew of this because my grandma commented on it reminding her of him when she came outside and seen me smoking one day. She is still looking for is old pipes and tobacco tins for me (not something he'd ever have thrown away, just a lot of stuff to go through). Most of the pipes I have are estate pipes from ebay or local auctions, I have only bought 2 pipes new (a Peterson and a Nording) which I found in a tobacco shop a few hours away. I really love getting an old crummy looking pipe and cleaning it up, polishing it and making it worth smoking again. Most of my pipes are briar, I do have a few cobs and a meer that was given to me as a present. As far as tobacco goes, I have various tins of Peterson mixtures, Escudo, and Frog Morten, as well as about 10 lbs of various VaPers, burly's and aromatics from 4noggins cellared (came in very handy when I was laid off for 3 months...didn't spend a dime on tobacco). However, 80% of the time I smoke CBW out of the same couple pipes. It is my everyday go-to smoke, not sure why. I just love the flavor, everyone around me loves the room note and, when I smoke where I can while I am out, it gets nothing but compliments. I still enjoy the other tobacco's when the mood strikes me for something different. Since I went back to work, I have started smoking cigarettes some too, because once I get on location I don't have time to enjoy a proper pipe, it's work work work, that's the oilfield for you. I do smoke a pipe on occasion while I'm driving to location, and the other day another driver wanted to know what I was using for an air freshener because he wanted to get some...just CBW. [attachment=1206:pipes2.jpg] These are my favorite pipes to smoke. There are 3 Sasieni's, a Savinelli, a Peterson, a Nording, my meer, a Hialeah, MM cob, a Viking, and an EA Carey Magic Inch.
