Default Just starting into pipes

So, I've been a casual cigar smoker for several years now. I enjoy them, but the wife doesn't. She said she enjoys the smell of pipes though.

Being the happily married guy that I am, I decided to look into pipe smoking. I looked around at ebay and other online merchants and was overwhelmed.

After a couple hours checking out the new guy FAQ here, I went and picked up the following:



So, now off to give it a go. I look forward to shooting the breeze with you all.

Welcome brother. Nice decision on the MM corncobs to start off with. In fact, Prince Albert in a Missouri Meerschaum corncob is still one of my favorite smokes to date. You should look at this thread and see about joining the trade.

The rules are on the page I linked but all you have to do is order a tin, or buy one, and send it to the experienced pipe smoker (their choice on what blend) and they will send you a sampling of different pipe tobaccos in return. You should really check it out if you decide you enjoy smoking what you have.

Well, I had a smoke of the Prince Albert yesterday. Smoked well, was quite enjoyable. I am going to try the vanilla blend tonight.

Can't go wrong with what you started out with. Let us know if you have any questions that you can't find the answer to.
