    If someone is going to really start getting into pipes what are some accessories that he will need?

    Need or want?
    As far as need goes, a box of matches, and a golf tee for a tamper is all you "need".
    If we are talking about wants, the list will be much longer, and admittedly much more expensive.

    Pipe, matches, and a fire source. Those are the essentials...

    If you don't have a golf tee a Fienger works well. :byg:

    Needs? A Bic lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, Zip-Lock bags, and $2 Czech pipe tool or $1 pipe "nail." You only NEED something air tight (or relatively air tight) to store a small amount of tobacco to get you going (i.e. Zip-Lock bags).

    Wants? Pipe case, fancy lighter, mason jars, extra pipes, extra tobacco, etc.

    Hell...if you really wanted to...you could just get a MM cob and pitch it whenever it gets completely fouled up. In that case...you don't NEED pipe cleaners. I can only imagine how much money I've spent on pipe cleaners over the past year to keep my most smoked MM cob (a x < $5 pipe) clean.

    A copy of Fairport Convention's Liege and Lief to space out to when you've lit up. An absolute essential.
