Feel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.

Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash?
Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Prince Albert, Carter Hall or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores.
What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick).
All of these together should run you less than $20.

Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out.
If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:

Not much of a smoker. Hate cigarettes, but enjoy a cigar on occasion. But recently picked up this pipe and some Apple flavored and toffee flavored tobacco. Tried the apple while at work last night and after a bit of relighting finally got to smoke it for about 10 minutes. Had some trouble getting the last bit at the bottom to stay lit, but I probably just packed it wrong.

I really like it, i've been smelling the bowl all morning today and looking forward to taking it on my next hike and when I go fishing. The only downside is my fiancee doesnt like the scent of tobacco otherwise I would smoke it more.
Would appreciate and friendly tips or recommendations on some pleasant smelling tobacco that hopefully my girl wont mind.

New to pipe smoking, so I've got a couple of questions:

I get tongue bite quite regularly, do I just smoke slower to make that stop? Are there other things I might be doing wrong?

Also, sometimes halfway through a bowl it becomes increasingly more difficult to drag the pipe, like something is blocking the pipe. Is this moisture? How do I reduce this?

When I smoke my pipe, flavor changes a lot, I taste something slightly different every minute or so. Is this inconsistency a good or a bad thing?

Last but not least, I was thinking about picking up some new tobacco. Got any recommendations for a woody, slightly sweet non-aromatic?

>> No.12140417

>do I just smoke slower to make that stop?
Yes. Also experiment with the humidity level of your tobacco.

>it becomes increasingly more difficult to drag the pipe, like something is blocking the pipe.
Might be the tobacco swelling as it heats. Pack less, or try the Frank/plug method of packing, where you just drop loose tobacco into the bottom half of the bowl, and wedge a nice denser plug of tobacco in the upper half. This creates a sort of air chamber beneath the main mass of tobacco and reduces the problems you may run into further down in the bowl.

>flavor changes a lot
Nothing wrong with that.

>> No.12140421

>do I just smoke slower to make that stop?
You should always smoke very slowly, ideally you should draw the second before your pipe goes out, but this takes experience, so just try to slow it down just a bit. The slower you smoke, the more taste

>Is this moisture?
It might be moist tobacco at the bottom of the bowl. If you are a wet smoker, go with a cotton cleaner through the stem every now and then. Or, if you feel/hear a gurling sound in the stem, take it off and blow the moist out

>flavor changes a lot
Depends on the tobacco, some are consistent throughout the bowl, others chance a lot. By example, irish oak gets very, very spicy at the bottom, yet is dry and woody in the beginning

I smoke both pipes and cigars. For me they both do a few things. They can relax me after a busy or tiring day. They can stimulate my mind whether I'm writing, playing music or working on art, or I'm just simply pondering things in my life or about life itself. They can work as a social lubricant much like alcohol, it gets people together. And sometimes I really just want to smoke something tasty. Tobacco goes great after a steak dinner, and works as a digestive aid. I'm sure theres different reasons for everyone though but these are mine.

I was once told a bit of advice by one of those really influential people you come across once in a while after he saw me put a lipper in.

He said something like “I used to dip when I was younger. I’ve since quit. There are many reasons people use tobacco, but the sooner you realize it’s just a crutch, the sooner you’ll realize it doesn’t do anything for you, and you’ll be glad you quit.”

I am glad I quit, and I know you will be too. Don’t let the tobacco jew take your life away. There’s a reason it’s marketed heavily in impoverished areas and to minorities. Also, our tobacco lobbyists have fucked us by minimizing the warnings on their products. Anyone who has been overseas has seen how damnable it is. They don’t have “this product may cause ____” or “tobacco is addictive” they have “TOBACCO KILLS” usually with a picture of some mouth or lung cancer that’ll turn your stomach.

I used to suggest buying a cob pipe, but I’ve started recommending seconds instead. Seconds being pipes that were carved for expensive brands, but didn’t have a great grain or had some holes/dents. Whatever their issue, they smoke perfectly well. They’re filled, finished, and sold under cheaper brands like Dr Plumb. The investment is larger - but you’ll end up with a real briar pipe for less than half of what you’d pay for a mid-range like Savinelli or Peterson.

Even if you don’t like pipe smoking, put it away and try again in a year. Or ten. Chances are your tastes will change.

Yes it is a block of wood with two holes but a pipe will develop its own character over time because the pipe will retain oils from the tobacco which will effect future smokes.

This is also the reason pipe smokers will buy corncobs to try out new tobacco because corncobs don't have a break in period like wood and are cheap so if the tobacco is shit there is no lose compared to a $30-$100+ pipe.

Anon by that logic nothing is a refined activity.

I am not preaching the word of pipe smoking and coming down on you poor peasants who know no better. All that matters is do you enjoy it? If yes then you can stick a straw in a can and light the smoke with a welders torch if you enjoy it then who cares.

Scorching tobacco makes it taste like cigarette smoke. Aftershave and beard oil can be absorbed into the wood and will make the tobacco taste like aftershave. If you like that then cool.

>Scorching tobacco

>can be absorbed into the wood and will make the tobacco taste like aftershave
I find this very difficult to believe, since pipes have a finish applied to them. Even with natural briar, it would take a fair amount of beard oil to penetrate through to the bowl (recall that briar is dense, so you're not getting a lot of capillary action). Now, I'm not sure whether people who use beard oil also have it dripping off their fingers under normal conditions, but it doesn't strike me as a likely scenario. Or more specifically to the topic at hand, not so much of a concern as to not recommend a briar to a beginner.

Ah I just wouldn't recommend them because they are more pricey then corncob and have a break in period. Just an opinion. Personally I would like to see if the aftershave thing is real because I remember always hearing about it when I first started.

You wouldn’t think much could go wrong, but you’d be amazed.
Briar root isn’t exactly a forgiving medium when it comes to carving.
Cracks in the wood, hidden flaws, and sand pits are all common to briar root burls.
And that’s just the natural flaws. Pipes can also have holes drilled in the wrong places, spots sanded out of shape by mistake, finish too thick or too thin, and on the list goes.
For as simple as they are, there sure are a hell of a lot of fucked up ones.

Another reason people prefer cobs for tasting is because they don’t hold a ghost. When a cob gets too funky or stinky, just clean it out and let it sit in the sun for a day. Works like a charm.

Only as addictive as drinking coffee. Smokers who say they can't quit are low IQ people with a behavioral addiction. We don't call dirt addictive even though there's low IQ people who claim they're addicted to it.
>causes cancer
It actually doesn't.
Only weak non-randomized epidemiological studies show this, which are inherently flawed given selection bias and the tendency for each cohort to select the healthfulness or harm inherent to their life. It should further be noted that these seldom correct for lifestyle factors like diet, exercise, and most importantly workplace hazard risk. The final nail in the anti-smoking science's coffin is that all of soft studies are contradicted by hard evidence; there is not one study to date where the smoking group went on to get cancer at any statistically significant rate above the control group in healthy animals. Anyone who believes smoking causes cancer has not examined the evidence for themselves.

Not him, but I've never understood how that is supposed to work. Unless your tobacco is broken up into very small pieces, it won't fill worth shit with gravity alone. Rubbed out flake is too big. Shag just gets caught up on itself. And even if you do get it in there, you'll only have enough tobacco to last 20 minutes tops because the density is so low.

I’ve used a Ronson Jetlite torch lighter for both pipes and other things. Costs $5 at every Walmart in the land and works great. Especially if you wave it around the top of the tobacco quickly. The whole top of your tobacco gets lit in a second.

>> No.12140516

Yes you can use a torch lighter, don't listen to that guy. Hold the lighter further back so you're not incinerating all your tobacco, and light in brief bursts while moving it around quickly. You want to expose the tobacco to as little heat as necessary to get it smoldering, and that control is achieved by limiting proximity and exposure to the jet of flame.

If anything, a torch lighter gives you more control over this than a soft flame, because the flame is strongly directional and has a well defined heat gradient. I use a soft flame because I got a nice lighter as a present, but plenty of folks use torch lighters.

4noggins. Unless you enjoy paying more than double the price, buy from the US. Keep your orders under 7oz or so, and definitely under $100, and the odds of customs taxing it are incredibly slim.

It's there but very slight. A larger diameter airway works much better. Or just puff slower.

>> No.12140925

Smoking slower helps immensely. Some tobacco's are more prone to it. virginia blends because of the higher tannins, jarred blends because the propylene glycol makes them smoke wet and steam causes bite. Let your tobacco dry out a bit, it shouldn't stick together when you pinch it. Some blends have propylene glycol as a humectant and simply wont dry out even if you leave it open for days. Oriental blends tend to have the lowest tannins and least PG and consequently the least tongue bite.

And chela briars tend to have more putty fills which make them smoke wetter. Corncob pipes are probably the driest smoking pipe.

>> No.12140938

I like the taste of pipe tobacco, somewhat less so cigars. Cigars and especially pipes force you to control (lower) your breathing rate, so you get into this zenlike deep relaxed state. The only thing they have in common with cigarettes is the tobacco, but even there the tobacco used in cigars and pipes is very different from the stuff used in cigarettes.

>> No.12140965

There are tobacco's that have flavorings that will markedly change the taste of the pipe for *years*. It's much better to have a cheap corncob to try new tobacco's in, just in case it turns out to be one of those. One of my favorite tobacco's (Bengal Slices) is one of these. If I smoke anything else in my bengal slices pipe then no matter what it is, it will simply taste like bengal slices. So bengal slices gets it's own pipe.

There is no addiction with pipe tobacco. It does make you feel relaxed, but most of that is the act of smoking rather than the nicotine. The difference between pipe smoking and pot smoking is the difference between sipping a scotch and pounding back shots of tequila.

Is it like a guaranteed thing? You don't really get much nicotine from pipes unless you're inhaling.

Worst case, get a hookah and smoke herbal molasses. Used to do that indoors in the winter before I built a shed to smoke pipes in. It's not a perfect substitute, but it works.

I agree that /ck/ isn't as good now as it was just a few years ago.
But when I see someone like you complaining about it I always wonder what you were doing to make the board good in the first place.
Make any cooking threads lately? Or are you just sitting on your ass waiting for the rest of us to provide you with just the right kind of entertainment?

I actually post stuff related to cooking. I admit I don't start threads very often but I do reply to them with things that contribute positively.
The thing I'm really complaining about is that off-topic threads like "coastie vs flyovers" or "do Americans really" or [thinly veiled racebaiting thread] just get left to fester instead of being deleted like they should be. There's always going to be shitposting but at the very least it can pertain to the board instead of being something that belongs in /int/ or /pol/ or /bant/.

do we recommend straight bits or bent? I’m assuming a straight bit will be better for noobs trying to get the smoke through

I like the look of bents better tho

>> No.12151185

Straight especially if they start with an aromatic. Can easily run a pipe cleaner through during the smoke.

>> No.12151736

Straight is better. Easier to get a cleaner through, also bends are sources for turbulence which cause condensation and gurgling.

>> No.12151927

Doesn't matter. The differences are always massively overstated, with the exception of bents being easier to clench because the mass is closer to the jaw. It's ultimately up to personal preference; I like bents, so almost all my pipes are bent.

>> No.12151935

I prefer the look of straights by a lot but I find bents sit in mouth better. Yeah maybe straights are slightly easier to get a pipe cleaner into but it's not like it's impossible to clean a bent

>> No.12153132

Next thread just change the subject to Lunting so the jannies stop fretting.
>do we recommend straight bits or bent?
The difference is really only how it facilitates clenching relative to the weight of the body. A heavy body with a straight stem is harder to clench because that bulk of weight is pretty far out there. That heavy body is easier to clench with a full bent stem because the weight is closer to your face. A light body like a cob is easy with either. If you don't intend to clench, or are getting a light pipe, then don't bother thinking about it.

none of these should be recommended to anyone. they are all cheap cigarrette grade tobaccos laced with propylene glycol for extra tongue burn.

Ok. So, what are some other widely available recommendations?

>> No.12154570

look for a virginia or oriental blend, and you want it in a tin which makes it less likely to contain propylene glycol. I'm partial to Rattrays and McConnell blends myself. go to pipesandcigars.com, they have a sale going on of their tinned blends.

I've never found a blend of theirs I actually like, they always have an odd taste to me. but lots of people love them, and some of them have good taste in tobacco, so its just a personal bias.

the manufacturer is less important than the style. pipe tobacco has a much broader range of flavor profiles than cigar tobacco that you should try to figure out that angle first. the major categories are aromatic (usually burley and virginia with an aromatic additive - you usually cant taste or smell it, but others can), burley (light nutty flavor, high nicotine), virginia (naturally sweet, tastes kind of hammy), oriental (dry and spicy flavor, low nicotine), and balkan (high latakia content, very smokey like bbq). get a sampler of these basic genres and see what strikes your fancy. I prefer oriental and balkan style blends, but I didn't figure this out for a year or so.

Most pipe blends won’t taste like cigars, period, because they’re made of different (and differently prepared) tobaccos. There are a couple of blends with cigar leaf in them, but they’re few and hard to find.
For tobaccos geared towards people who have smoked things before, look at English or Balkan blends.

Good blends to try:
Three Nuns
Balkan Sobranie
Hearth and Home Magnum Opus
Samuel Gawith’s Squadron Leader.
Seattle Pipe Club’s Plum Pudding
Mac Baren Virginia No.1
Orlik Golden Sliced

both good virginias. iirc the golden sliced has a fair bit of burley as well as a sweet topping. It's been awhile since I've smoked that one.
I'd also add McConnells Scottish Flake and Rattrays 7 Reserve for classic Orientals.

If you want the nicotine hit from tobacco, plus the aroma of unburnt tobacco, try one of the unflavored varieties of nasal snuff, like the old German Schmalzler.

You'll find that people who smoke pipes usually smoke once a day or less (I smoke like 2 times a week tops, depending on my schedule and the season). They're not going to have that embedded reek like cigarette smokers do.

Think I might have answered my own question while finding a picture. Looks very similar to pic related, same color scheme but doesn't say vanilla or cherry on it. Just "Pöschl's Casablanca MIXTURE" with the same logo. It's a ribbon cut and I can't see any different types of tobacco, just a light brown one which I'm guessing is virginia.

No its stamped Koncak. Cant find much info about them online besides the small article on pipedia.
The real gem there though is the Kai Nielsen billard, its stamped VVVV so its one of his more expensive pipes I think, which is great considering I only paid 200kr for 24 pipes and that one was among them.

I know you have atleast one meerschaum, have you ever had to deal with a sour smell coming from it? This one reeks, but Ive read salt/alcohol treatment is off limits when it comes to meerschaums.

>> No.12160718

If you’re cleaning out an used pipe, get some 91% isopropyl alcohol, an extra package of pipe cleaners and go to town.
Dip the pipe cleaners in the alcohol, run them through the stem and mouthpiece until they are absolutely clean. Then dip a paper towel in the stuff and wipe down the outside of the mouthpiece and tenon this will pick up any residue there and kill off any cooties.
As for the pipe bowl, you’ll want to cut back any burnt-on ash (we call it “cake”) to get back close to the wood of the bowl. There are specialized tools for this, but you can also do it with a small pocketknife if you go slow and take care to not gouge the bottom of your bowl.
