I Love getting a chance to start someone in the wonderfull world of pipe smoking. A co-worker who smokes cigars came and asked me about pipes. After a little talking I offered to set him up with a starter set. Here's what I put together: 1.Dr Grabow Viking early edition pipe. She ain't pretty but a good pipe to learn on. 2.Czech Pipe tamper tool 3.Mason Jar of Tobacco samples: Frog Morton, Frog Morton on the Bayou, Rattay's Old Gowrie, Merde de Cheval, Peter Stokkebye's Black Cherry, Captain Black Gold Label, Orliks Golden Sliced, Hillbilly Blend, and of course... Kickin' Chicken. 4.Threw in some notes on the basics. I also gave him the name of the Forum in case he had more questions.
