Hello, my name is James. I've been pipe smoking for almost 2yrs. I used to smoke cigs for almost 15yrs. I'm really enjoying the the journey to finding the perfect pipe and tobacco. I've tried cobs, meerschaums, and Falcons. I've smoked most of the brands available locally. I'm currently working my way through Pipeworks and Wilke line of tobacco. I've lurked for a bit and this seems to be a great forum.
