Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

While a military bit "allows" you to remove the stem, it is still a good practice not to - just for the sake of repetition breeds practice that carries over sometimes to how you treat other pipes.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

The reason for starting with 1/2 a bowl is so that you smoke the bowl all the way to the bottom so that you get a good cake on the bottom half of the bowl. What a bunch of hoooey! Fill the bowl and...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

And if there is something that I have heard for years is that VAs like small narrow bowls.

Here's the rule of thumb, try your tobaccos in different size bowls and see which ones smoke best of you,...

Do you know where Riegels is in Georgetown Square in Ft Wayne? Get over there with your pipe and sit down with Dennis and tell him what your issue is. Live tutoring is a great benefit, and he's a...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Here is something to consider, since you already like estate pipes. Certain pipe brands really hold value well, usually 50% of new pipe prices. It is why I buy estate pipes. You get a pipe for...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

I find Chacoms can break in very slowly and difficultly.

Fill it and smoke it. There are all sorts of methods. Virginias I have found make the hardest cakes.

Smoking too hot and/or too fast...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Do you smoke cigars?

I ask for it brings up something I thought about later. If I smoke a cigar and then smoke my pipe, the pipe always tastes flat. Cigar smoke is much stronger (even from mild...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

I am not sure what you mean by watered down. If you mean it tastes like there was not as much flavor as the first time you smoked it, that could come from a couple things.
You might have tried it...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

When I was writing my response, DaBear hadn't posted his yet. We must have been writing at the same time.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

There is some tobacco that comes in what is referred to as a ribbon cut and is the form most pipe tobacco is sold in. Some pipe tobacco is made in a pressed form called a plug. Some is slices from...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Lots of good stuff here. Wet tobacco means lots of relights. I like the idea of "cadence," never called it that before, but each tobacco (and then humidity in that tobacco) play a roll in how to...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Basic blends? How about my favorite blends? Hmm, depends on the day. I have tried literally, hundreds of blends. There are some that I keep around to smoke. Not all are presently open, but...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

If you rub the flake out (what I do 95% of the time), you will have basically normal tobacco, so do it that way. If you fill with rolled up flake, I usually dribble some rubbed flake on the top to...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

I think we are echoes of one another.

I miss Syrian Latakia in blends. Cyprian is nice, but different. Some blends have changed just by that simple omission. So, while some is rose colored...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Jerry, it is good to see someone trying new things. Do not let yourself be corrupted by thinking, "I need to like it because Joe Pipester says it is marvelous." I have a buddy who smokes only...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Three Nuns was very good, but it wasn't something that really "WOW"ed me personally. Do not get me wrong, I liked it, but some thought it was better. It never lived up to the hype (in my...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

So, I am assuming the Thee Nuns is the new edition? I'd gladly trade you a for few bowls of Three Nuns - I will send you a couple of Hal 'O the Wynd? If you are interested, give me a PM.

Peace...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

A) Does it still have the filter in the stem? If so, get rid of it. It is more of a pain than it is a benefit, and often smells nasty.

B) You do not need to wipe the inside of the bowl. Dump...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

I do not know about crackly, but I definitely like my tobaccos better on the drier side than the wet or even moist side.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

If I take a couple pipes along fishing or golfing for, I don't usually have room for more than one blend in one container (and a 3-finger cigar case). A tin (or tobacco pouch) is safer for me than...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Personally, I like the tins for...

Funny, all my Tupperware says Rubbermaid on it. ;)

Rubbermaid that has an air tight seal is the same as Tupperware.
