Does anyone have pipes they just don't smoke. I'm asking because I have been smoking mm cobs and I'm not really very good at it. I just about burnt out the wood bits in a few of my legends, I can never seem to smoke to the bottom (even the legends that burnt the pine left unburnt tobacco in the bottom), no matter how careful I am the rims get charged if I use a match or a lighter (tobacco is below the rim even after swelling up when lit), and no matter how much I clean em they smell like an ashtray even cleaning them after every smoke. Now I don't mind paying between $4.00-$9.00 for a pipe to get some use out of it and to learn on but I got a POY coming, an altinok (even if it is the lowest price point it's a lot for me) coming, and for fathers day I got a lil bulldog from a member here coming, and to be completely honest I'm scared sh!tless I'm gonna f*** em up so bad that they may be unrecognizable after just 1 smoke. So my question is does anybody smoke just cobs and spend money on other pipes that they don't smoke or am I the only one who is this messed up in the head? I thought I wanted to smoke em when I bought em but the longer I wait the more I'm convinced that it would be a bad idea. Even if I don't smoke em they were all technically gifts from my wife so I can look at them.
