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:https://youtu.be/0XHYPso7TXsOld thread >>1346431Come on in and get comfy.

Guten Morgen!>>1371080I hope it's on the hill at 11 o'clock>>1372258also, this. I normally smoke outside never had any problems with wind.
>>1372258i like it well enough, wind really needs to be going for it to be worth it buit, when on a boat or a dock or something like that its a life saver, it does scratch the cake on the inside of the pipe so theres that, its also very useful for packing a bowl, sticking hte pipe in your pocket and be ready smoke when you get where you need to go, cost very little, worth having as an option>>1372402if you mean here, then you rightif you´ve never had problems with wind, you havnt tried smoking outside with enough wind!
It's weird buying some old Peterson estate pipes and seeing how small they are. I suppose pipes went the same way as watches and ended up getting bigger as standard. Thankfully they're in decent condition under the crust and wont need much more than some white diamond and carnauba applied. Stems were awful though. One looked like it was made of milk chocolate it had oxidised so much.
>>1372702Pics? Comparison to other pipes? Interestimg!
>>1372747I'll try to get some pictures together. Just as some general thoughts on estate pipes for anyone considering them - the are a few things to consider. First, is avoid anything with a broken or missing stem. Finding replacement stems is a pain, and usually requires a custom job. I'd also consider how much work you want to put into restoring the pipe. You can get pretty far with elbow grease and household items, but they can't fix chips, cracks or holes. The best estate pipes are dirty, but otherwise undamaged.As an example, the first Peterson had some nasty charring around the rim. Deep enough I had to sand it down and restain it. The only reason I had leather dye of the right colour is because I've dabbled in pipe making. It has other marks and nicks that with enough time I could fix - but this is /out/, not /fa/. I have zero doubts I'm going to drop this pipe at some point while camping, so I'm not going to obsess. One useful thing to do is to invest in a reaming tool. Expect a cake in the bowl, draught hole and shank thick enough you can spread it on toast. Some 400 grit sandpaper will finish the bowl, and a few dozen pipe cleaners coated in isopropyl alcohol will clean the draught. As a final point, I'd recommend not starting with an estate pipe. The only reason I know I've cleaned it properly is because I know what Bob's Chocolate Flake tastes like in a new pipe. Estate pipes have decades of tobacco oils impregnated into the wood - it's really easy to see a bowl that looks clean, but makes your tobacco taste like whatever they previous owner smoked for 20 years. Just buy a Missouri meerschaum. They're cheap and can last you years.
There is nothing I want more right now than to go watch a sunrise with I never ceases pipe. I have my Sunday morning plans.

how hard is it to be addicted to nicotine? if i smoke out of a pipe once a week will i get addicted?

How does pipe smoking compare to chew/dip? Is it possible to switch? I started dipping instead of smoking because of the convenience but I've always enjoyed the aesthetics of pipes more.
>>1374177My man, it's up you to decide. I can tell you though that youbwill get far far more nicotine fom chew/dip than pipe. When you smoke pipes and cigars, you enjoy the flavor, the ritual and smoke rather than the buzz. I personally went from cigs to dip to vape and then pipes. The pipes are much more fulfilling in a ritualistic sense but keep in mind that you are dealing with combustion so moderating is key.
>>1374207Good to know. I actually really really enjoy the flavor of natural tobacco and the process of a dip, I'm just worried about pipes not having enough nicotine to keep me going. Do you have any recommendations for stronger, more 'natural' pipe tobacco? I have an old pipe my grandpa gave me that his great grandpa gave to him, but it needs a new stem before I can use it

Tobacco is going to get crazy expensive in my country, so I'll probably have to quit cigarettes and rollups. Pipes seem like a good option.What do you think about long stem wizard pipes, are they worth getting?
>>1375860They’re called churchwardens. They’re a cool smoke, and primarily intended for use while sitting down. They aren’t really suitable for holding in your mouth by clenching as the majority of the weight is far removed from your body, which is why I don’t go for them. If you like how they look though, go for it. Pipes are a tool for consuming tobacco, and there’s never been a better selection of blends to purchase.
>>1375860They used to be, when pipes were usually made out of clay. The long stem would keep your fingers from being burned by grabbing the flaming hot bowl. Now with pipes mostly being made out of wood, it’s not as necessary as it used to be. They still look great, but the length is now just for fashion. And if you like going /out/, it’s just one more thing to break more easily.
>>1375860Churchwardens provide a cooler smoke with the long stem. I much prefer it for getting the most flavor but I also have a pocket pipe for portability.
cutting the filter in half helped a lot. I mean I need a little smoke.
>>1376895and fresh tobacco. this bag is about a year and a half old. open the whole time.
>>1374691mail it induh
>>1376896Drop it into a ziplock bag with a damp paper towel, seal it up and wait a day or two. The water should rehydrate the tobacco and bring the flavor back.
Do you guys get your mouths burnt/tastebuds destroyed?I quit smoking cigarettes for 6 months but would like to have tobacco from time to time. Thing is, idk if its worth it, my teeth are getting whiter and I can smell stuff again. I also never liked not inhaling, and always burnt my tongue whenever I smoked cigars. I've never tried a pipe though.
>>1378484When I started years ago, sure - everyone does when they start. I mean, there’s plenty you can do to avoid tonguebite outside of simple practice. Use a filter, use a system pipe, use a p-lib, use a churchwarden, avoid aromatics and other tobacco with a reputation for burning your mouth. The only thing that will stop your teeth colouring is brushing them after smoking, which I expect most pipe smokers do anyway since very few smoke more than once or twice a day.
https://www.pipesandcigars.com/mobile/shop/end-of-summer-sale/2003360/If i was to load up on tins, what is the best way for me to keep them fresh for long periods of time?
>>1379748Your best bet is Mason jars. Unopened tins are hit and miss; some are great, but occasionally you have one whose seal is shitty and you can tell the humidity had been slowly escaping over time. Safer just to jar them all right away, since you'll have to do it once you open them anyway.
>>1379748So many good deals. If you like englishes i will say Hearth and Home Black House lived up to the hype and edges out White Knight.Pic unrelated. Just wanted to post my favorite pipe.

Anyone have suggestions for pipe tobacco that’s actually easy to smoke and stays lit? Preferably strong and flavourful. I’ve been smoking for a year and I seldomly get a bowl I can enjoy without excessive relighting.
>>1378484You must be smoking some cheap cigars or trying way to hard to inhale. MOST quality cigars are packed tight which requires some effort to take in a mouthful of smoke, but not so much where you have to put some muscle behind your breath. Do not inhale cigars. Wait a bit between each puff, you don't want the cigar to over heat. I'd recommend trying out one of these cigars:Alec Bradley (so far, any. I especially like prensado)Padron (no. 1 or anniversary series)Punch (they smell weird but taste good)A Fuente (grand reserva)----------------------------------------------Can anyone else recommend quality (non-american tobacco) cigars? II know that they make cigars with pipe tobacco now, but I've only seen them with the unflavored tobacco. Do they make flavored pipe tobacco cigars?
Fill me in on pipes, are they any good?How long can I be huffing and puffing for? I heard something about overheating, is that an issue?What's a good place to start? Where can I find a nice pipe that doesn't break the bank in Sweden?
>>1380552I like Joya de Nicaragua (Joya Red in particular), Brickhouse, and Perdomo.
>>1380552Oliva V and San Cristobals are about the only cigars i still smoke. They are great.
>>1380533Any ribbon-cut from J.F.Germaine. They cut it down to a fine shag. I can pack it as hard as I like and it still burns like a champ. But with any tobacco, you should be fine if you use less than you think you’ll smoke, packed looser than you think you need. >>1380575> Fill me in on pipes, are they any good?Sure. Some people smoke for taste, some for the exposure to nicotine over a longer period than a cigarette without the cost of a cigar. > How long can I be huffing and puffing for? I heard something about overheating, is that an issue?You can smoke for anything from 10 minutes to 3 hours. Without intentionally smoking slowly, most people will struggle to get a bowl to last that long. The size of the bowl and the density of tobacco after you’ve packed the pipe will determine how long it lasts. You can always fill the bowl half way if you fancy. Overheating happens when you smoke too fast, the bowl heats up and becomes uncomfortable to hold, and may start burning through if there are holes in the bowl wall. But that’s honestly quite difficult to do.> What's a good place to start? Where can I find a nice pipe that doesn't break the bank in Sweden? Missouri meerschaum make corncob pipes. They’re good value, cheap, readily available in most places in Europe. Their quality assurance could be better, but you’ll find no shortage of people that swear by them. Pick one up, and try to find something like Orlik Golden Sliced. Aromatic blends, usually with sweet-sounding names, will more than likely burn your tongue.
>>1380552Almost forgot to mention, the best gauge (diameter) are the thinner cigars (as thick as a normal male thumb). Finger-thin cigars become hard to draw, and thicker ones have less flavor. This is because most of the cigar flavor is in the binder/wrapper. (Think area (x^2) vs volume (x^3)) The rest is usually filler tobacco with mild taste. >>1380608>>1380623Thanks, I will check these out
>>1380533>without excessive relighting.Define excessive. Relights are fine, unless you're talking about every couple of minutes for the entire bowl. Then it's not a matter of the particular blend, but your packing density, tobacco humidity, and smoking pace. You can get almost all tobaccos to burn well if you're controlling those variables.
Maybe you lads can give me a bit of help. When I get close to the end, maybe 3/4ths empty, my pipe starts making a crackling noise when I draw in. I'm not puffing heavily on it, smoking normally as far as I can tell, although I have only been smoking about a month. I'm pretty sure it's not the 'gurgling' that people describe, that means the tobacco is wet. It's like a regular campfire's crackling. What does this mean, if anything?
>>1380965Your embers are getting close to the moisture that has collected at the bottom of the bowl, and it's boiling off. Perfectly normal, and seems to happen more (for obvious reasons) on more humid tobaccos. And you're right, it's distinctly different from gurgling, which is liquid being trapped inside the air passage.
is fall objectively the best piping season? i think i think so
>>1381248No because it's cold and miserable. But now that I finally have a house, I'm building a heated, wood-paneled smoking room in a shed, so I'll be able to smoke in the winter and late fall.Pic somewhat related, going for that style but far more compact.
>>1381682but the cooler temp makes the smoke more crisp
>>1382101That doesn't sound real
>>1382105cooler smoke is universally desired, lower ambient temp keeps heat down, smoother smoke, that and fall leaves just look so lovely,
>>1382122Cooler ambient temp's affect on the temperature of smoke will be negligible. Unless your pipe is seven feet long and is paper thin, it's going to be nearly the same temperature on a 100 degree day as a -20 degree day when it reaches your mouth. The pipe itself will insulate the smoke from outside conditions, and even if it didn't, the time it takes for the smoke to travel from the bowel, through the stem, and into your mouth wouldn't be enough for any meaningful cooling to occur. Smoking has more "fuddlore" than shooting does, like people that think a green flame is cooler and better for smoking than a normal flame. All that said, fall is still my favorite time to smoke because of the leaves, that reason is totally valid
>>1382128>Unless your pipe is seven feet long and is paper thinA long churchwarden Falcon-style pipe with a heatsink all along the metal stem would probably work to cool it. Especially if you made the stem a little wider to accommodate tiny aluminum baffles inside, like a suppressor.It would be a pain in the ass to clean, but it would definitely be cool.
>>1382485It'd be best to make those cooling fins hollow too so they act as part of the baffle and the smoke expands into there to cool. Idunno know though, I don't really smoke pipes. I'm a cigar man myself
Why are weed pipes not allowed? I'm new to /out/.
>>1382749Radically more popular and would more than likely overwhelm these slow but persistent threads. With that said, there’s a specific relationship between pipesmoking and /out/ in the form of lunting. Try it! A nice pipe of ennerdale in the outdoors is a treat.
>>1382749weed is, by the ridiculously stretched and Americanized view of the word a ""drug"", a far cry from pipe smoking in spirit, no personal problem with either itst just a very different topicand, as far as i cant tell, widely, there is no recognizable artistry associated with the production of ""weed"" pipes, or with the smoking of themplus. decades of pipe smoking has made pipe smoking and out a thing, just look at George W. Sears
>>1373605>>1380514thanks for the responses fellas, goana pick up a pipe to give me another cool thing to do when i go camping from here on.
>>1382749The type of pipes used for the two don't really overlap
After restoring the Peterson system pipe I bought, I’ve found that small bowls (this being the smallest bowl I think is practical) really aren’t forgiving of bad packing technique. With big bowls you know you can make up for it by fighting with the ember for 20 minutes. But with small bowls, that 20 minutes of work is most of the bowl. With that said, the ability to smoke a bowl of Irish flake when all you have is 30 minutes is wonderful. Sometimes I’d like a bowl before work, but I can’t go through an entire bowl of it in my cob country gentleman in less than an hour, and I don’t want to smoke half of it and then force myself to finish it in the evening when I might prefer something different. I don’t know about the US, but these old Peterson pipes are readily available online in the UK, and are generally a third of the price of Peterson’s contemporary equivalent (317) shape. If anyone has questions about restoring estate pipes, I’ll try to give an answer and provide some of the resources I used.
a pipe, a lake view, and a campfiredoes it get better?
>>1380575Gå in i närmsta turkkiosk och köp en pipa, kostar vanligtvis 150-300kr. Eller beställ en billig variant via t.ex Nettotobak.
>>1384959Norrbotten här.Närmsta sak till en turkkiosk är pizzerian, och sist jag var där såg jag inga pipor.Tror du att macken kanske skulle ha dem? Jag vet att de har cigarrer där.
>>1384961Inte en aning, gå och kolla. Det värsta som kan hända är att de inte säljer det och att du får beställa via nätet.eBay har massor av bra pipor för under hundalappen. Så det är också värt att kika på, dock tar det en månad eller två innan du får pipan om det är från Kina.
>>1384961>>1384971Just go to danishpipeshop and order MM gentleman for 150 DKK. No need to resort to shitty Chinese pipes, have some self respect.
>>1385037I wasn't planning to. I bet the chinks would poison me.
>>1382749One single reason:>dude, weed lmao!!!!oneoneone!!Potheads are annoying as hell.To be clear: nothing wrong with smoking it once in a while. It's the typical stoner I can't stand.
>>1372336cigarettes are for fags, smoke a hookah if you even have a shred of self-respect.
well my pipe was tasting pretty bad. but now it tastes fine. didn't do anything. starting to feel comfy like i'm in the hobbit.
Is this gay or is it as rad as I think it is?They also have a ton of less expensive hobbit pipes
>>1385792Pretty rad. The stem is neat, apparently they use beechwood with an internal acrylic passage and endpiece.I just love churchwardens, maybe that's why. Next pipe will be a churchwarden poker, or maybe a regular poker that I'll make a churchwarden stem for.
>>1374691What state? 20 yo NJfag here. Very lucky to work at a family friends tobacconist. Ive been smoking pipes since 16 and cigars since 17
>>1385040As my grandpappy said "Can't trust a gook as far as ya can throw em"
>>1386162my grandpa was resistance, odd cleaning out his attic as he always aluded (half jokingly as far as we knew) to having a quite sizable stash.when you know your grandpa made damn fucking sure no one would find the thing you are looking for as his life depended on it, how the fuck do you find that thinggrandpa had a radiomaker friend though, was pipe smoker
This is your gentle reminder that Dunhill blends are still scheduled to be axed.
>>1386628Good thing I just got my order from p&c :^)
>>1386628I have a good size jar of Night Cap. I was pleased it lived up to the hype, it might be my favorite blend.
you might not use them, but those filters sure do get real dirty.
Just got 2 ounce can of Cornell & Diehl Billy budd to smoke while /out/ in the mountains... it's my first cigar tobacco blend and it is really good. Earthy, cool, and a really high nicotine content. Gonna be a comfy winter.
any blends you guys recommend as an intro to perique?
is this any good? i like big bowls and balls
>>1386723C&D Poplar Camp is pretty nice.
>>1386723Dunhill Elizabethan, if you can find it. Also, Escudo uses perique as the thing that distinguishes it from a straight Virginia blend. That tiny bit of flavorful bitterness in there is the perique.
>>1386723Straight Perique is how I did it. I could only get through a bowl before I felt like I was gonna die from the nicotine, but it tasted delicious and I've loved it since.
I just ordered this - it should come by Halloween. I'm very excited! 1.97 in depth x .83 in diameter chamber and an attached wind cap (as pictured). I think it'll be a quite fine lunting pipe.
>>1386973That cap is extremely cool. I wonder why there’s not more of them about. They seem to be overlooked a lot, which is a shame since the clip-on type have a bad habit of ruining the finish on the rim with the buildup of moisture and tar. Even Peterson didn’t bother when they made an ‘outdoor’ series of pipes, which is weird since the UK and Ireland’s biggest import seems to be wind. >>1386728Depends on how you smoke, really. If you hold it while smoking, I’m sure it’ll be great. But I’ve been punished with sensitivity for clenching heavy straight pipes for too long, so I usually restrict myself to lighter pipes like cobs if I want a straight pipe and a smoke that is longer than an hour these days. Also - here’s a recommendation for a savoury blend ; Dunhill’s aperitif. They sell it as an (obviously) aperitif, but it goes well as a morning pipe. Try as I might, I can’t get tongue bite from it. Give it a go before the doors start closing and people start buying tins in bulk.
>>1386658I usually stick to using them twice. All my pipes are army mount, so there’s no harm detaching and attaching the stem after every second smoke.
>>1387034i prefeer herbal tobacco.
>>1387169All tobacco is herbal.
>>1387169Smoked out of a non-GMO free-range pipe with a responsibly-sourced petroleum-free stem, I hope. But seriously - what are tobacco alternatives like? Theres a company called honeyrose that make a few blends here, but they cost twice as much. The only reason I’d be interested is because spreadsheet Phil is announcing his autumn budget on Monday, and the bastard is going to increase tobacco duty even further.
from a trip later this summerhaven't had time to post in 4 months now.. been occupied in the army
>>1387238cute looking doggo!
>>1370693The only time I really smoke a pipe is when I go /out/. I used to smoke while driving, but enough cops pulled me over to “investigate” that it stopped being worth it. My neighborhood smoke shop sells their own blends which are fantastic. Used to smoke a cheap bracken pipe, but got desperate and used it for weed which essentially ruined it. Now I just smoke Missouri Meerschaums till they burn in.
if I buy 250g box as opposed to 50g tin (can't find the blend I'm looking for in tin size), will it keep? should I get a little airtight jar or something?
>>1387238are you into furries? or into men?
>>1388222You should be putting all your tobacco in jars once you open it.
>>1388222If you want it to keep, and it isn’t in a vacuum sealed tin, you’ll want to jar it. Glass and airtight, if you can. If it’s an English or Virginia blend, pack it loosely and open it every now and then. You want it to age in the jar. If it’s an aromatic, pack it tightly and keep it shut - unlike English blends, they don’t age well. The casing and topping protect the tobacco from the environment, and age in place of the leaf. This means instead of developing taste, you end up with a weaker aromatic. Also, goddamnit spreadsheet Phil kept the duty increase and put another 2% on my pipe tobacco. I swear to god my Christmas bonus is going entirely on tins this year.
I have a question for y'all.What exactly do you guys see in nicotine highs? And why do you choose them over something like alcohol? I can't include weed since I haven't tried it.To me personally a nicotine high just feels kinda heavy and sorta unpleasant in comparison to alcohol.
>>1388414You don't smoke a pipe for a nicotine buzz
>>1388434I mean, yea. But you get it anyways.
>>1388435Pipe smokers supposedly smoke for the flavour and aesthetic
>>1388435Yeah, if you weigh like 50 pounds. Never have I ever gotten a nicotine buzz from pipes or cigars. Only cigarettes.
>>1388414I get a sort of calm focus. With pipes, it only happens if I smoke two or more bowls in a row though, which is pretty rare. >>1388438Smoke stronger cigars, and more than one in a session. Or smoke indoors, where you can breathe the second hand smoke.
>>1388414See >>1388434Also, after smoking for a little while you won't get the buzz anymore. You quickly build a tolerance to nicotine.
>>1388101>I used to smoke while driving, but enough cops pulled me over to “investigate” that it stopped being worth it. >Used to smoke a cheap bracken pipe, but got desperate and used it for weedbig think
>>1380391Let me break this down for you chum, in case you don't understand. Most pipe smokers will smoke cigars, most pipe smokers enjoy both cigars and pipes, though the experience is different. I prefer pipes because of the variety in terms of flavors, where as with cigars if you want the full reach of what you can smoke, you will need to be putting down some real moolah. Not all of us have a trust fund or live in Venezuela.
>>1380533You want to go for a drier style of tobacco, if it is too wet then it won't light or stay lit properly, sounds like your brand is either naturally wet, or has gotten damp somehow. Spread it out on a cookie sheet, at a gentle 20 degree heat for 30 minutes, that ought to dry it out without spoiling any flavor. >>1380575Can't go wrong with a good bulldog style tobacco pipe, made out of briar. You might also consider an estate pipe, there should be plenty of second handers to buy in Sweden and they are easy to clean. Overheating is only an issue if you repeatedly pack and smoke. >>1380552Don Kikis Red Bands were a particular favorite of mine when I lived back in NA. Nicaraguan hand rolled, but the tobacco is Habana, similar climate so you were getting an cubanesque cigar without Cuban prices. Monte Christos are nice Cuban cigars.Avoid Quoroms unless you've got an iron lung, Quorom Blacks are only cigar that I've ever had to lie down after smoking because I was light headed. Very strong.Meharis are an Indian or Java style cigar, so smaller quicker smokes, but nice if you can only spare the time for a quick drink and smoke. I always recommend paired drinks with your cigar or pipe, whiskey's or brandy are a good choice. >>1381248It's definitely the comfiest season for it. >>1383835Nice restoration anon. >>1383903A beautiful Frau prepping dinner for you. While you smoke, that's about all I could add. >>1385040>>1385037Get estate pipes if your really not able to afford new upmarket. A good pipe is a generational investment, and as long as it's in good condition and cleaned properly there is no real adverse differences. I restored a gamut of old pipes. My favorite one was a beautiful walnut colored briar that I've recently lost on a bus ride. :( 1950's make, hadn't been smoked since the 70's at least and was in a right state when I bought it, but with the right cleaning was as good as new. I paid probably 5 CAD. 3 to clean.
I got a zippo so I could stop buying new lighters. But you can't really get the flame to cooperate.And I got the stuff to refill bic lighters. watched the video. but it's a little difficult.
>>1388319>he gets a Christmas bonusI am so goddamned jealous of you...>>1387236 >what are tobacco alternatives like?It’s been awhile for me, but the last time I tried it, the distinct impression I got was of it not being worth the time, effort or money I spent on it. I threw it away after two bowls, and I hadn’t even smoked real tobacco at the time.
anyway to be sure the mouth part doesn't touch anything when I set it down? I have a little stand, but.
>>1388870For what purpose?
>>1387236I smoked sage and other stuff before I came of age. It's really not bad.
when you clean your pipe real good, and now it hits too good.
>>1386628Coming back under Robert McConnell under slightly different names,
>>1388434I know a few who do. Their go to blends are 5 Brothers, OJK, and Haunted Bookshop. Look at Matches860, dude does it for the nic.
>>1389579Close - they’re match blends.
>>1388839I have had no issues using pic related. Even manage it in light winds.
So I want to get a pipe but I don’t want to get cancer.Why do y’all still smoke even though smoking causes the big C? Mostly looking for someone to justify my purchase of another corncob and tin so I can start it up again
>>1389603>even though smoking causes the big CWhen done frequently over decades. Cancer risk with pipes is negligible over baseline population.
>>1389591From what I've read K&K are producing the blends under the McConell line. Same recipe, different leaf source since its another company. There might be some difference, but Dunhill was basically just an old brand name anyhow. Dunhill has not produced them proper for a while. Murray's took over after Dunhill and then went away and then got revived buy Standard Lane which are going away now too.
Does posting itt come with a fedora?
>>1389706I second this question
>>1382874there are tons of glass artisans for weed pipes, idk where the fuck you got the idea that stoners were just huffing smoke from tin cans. Breaking the rule just to post pic related.
>>1389478it was hitting too good starting to calm down now. got some gook back in it.
>>1389706If it does, they forgot to give me mine. I feel cheated, and demand satisfaction.
>>1389680Citation givenFrom the US Surgeon General’s famous 1964 report on the health effects of smoking (yes, THAT one):https://profiles.nlm.nih.gov/ps/access/nnbbmq.pdfPage 86 (93 on PDF file) >For current pipe smokers (Table 5), men smoking less than 10 pipefuls per day have death rates very close to those of non-smokers. >For heavy pipe smokers (10 or more per day) two studies show increases of 15 and 12 per- cent in death rates, but the other two studies show little or no increase. >The over-all mortality ratio of 1.05 does not differ statistically from unity. Note at bottom of the page:>*Statistical significance throughout this report refers to the 5 percent level un- less otherwise specified. In testing whether an observed mortality ratio of smokers relative to non-smokers is greater than unity, the probability is calculated that a ratio as large as or larger than the observed ratio would occur by chance if the smokers and non-smokers were drawn from two populations having the same death rate. >If this probability is less than 0.05 (5 percent) the observed increase in the death rate of smokers relative to non-smokers is said to be statistically significant at the 5 percent level. The results of significance tests will be quoted only for mortality ratios in which the number of deaths raises a doubt as to whether the difference from unity could be due to sampling errors.TL;DR-there is more variation in mortality rates between randomly assembled groups of people than there is between groups of exclusive pipe smokers and non-smokers. CDC’s words, not mine.
>>1389698It’s a convoluted situation to be sure. The blends were made by Dunhill, then Murray, and now STG/Orlik. K&K have distributed those blends, but have never made them. It’s not entirely clear what recipe K&K are using. They haven’t received the rights from BAT (hence the names), and STG/Orlik have no reason to hand out their recipes (which are likely the only ones that can be used in 2018 - what do you do when the recipe calls for 20% Syrian Latakia?). Particularly not when STG have an interest in continuing to produce their most popular pipe blends. So the best guess would be that they’ve found either Murray’s or Dunhill’s original recipes and reworked them to use available leaves.I’ll have to try their equivalent of aperitif. I’m sure i’ll like it, but I’m not sure it’ll be the same. There’s a lot that goes into a blend that isn’t tobacco. K&P found that out when they were remaking Old Gowrie - you can get the same leaves, but you’ll never get the same water, environment and staff (cracking blend though).
>>1375860I’m not really a fan of them but do your thing anon. I am a corn cob man, myself.
>>1390604Apertiff, Durbar, and Elizabethan were the only blends worth a flip to me.
Oh manly men, a young buck is in need of advice. I am interested in getting a pipe, but i am very much not interested in the negatives that come with smoking. That's mostly why i haven't taken up cigarettes. Should i be more or less worried about that aspect of smoking when it comes to pipes?
>>1390819as a pipe smoker, i would honestly say, dont start, if you are a cigerette smoker, sure! switch! but, this might sound conspiratorial but, atleast for Europe, belive me, it wont take long for them to deny you medial attention if you were ever a smokersmoking is carcenogenic, sitting around a campfire is carcenogenic, if you sit around a campfire roughly as much as you smoke there should medically be no issue
>>1390821I am in the US, i dont have to worry about anything but my PCP having a hissy fit. And i understand that, since its not already a habit for me, i shouldnt start. But going from what youve just said, there shouldnt be any problem with me smoking a pipe once a week on a hike then?
>>1390828See>>1390451You have nothing to worry about, pipe smokers are statistically indistinguishable from nonsmokers.
Oh fug, what's up /out/? Seekay poster here. I started smoking pipes when I was 16 because I was a goddamned edgelord, but it's been years since I broke them out.My collection peaked at around 12 or so during my brief college stint but I often gave them away - my core group has remained two Mario Grandis and a Corinzio.Is MG still around?Also, is Cornell and Diehl still a thing? They were making waves back in 2008-2012. Billy Budd was my favorite for a long while.
>>1392025Also, harkening back to that time period, what ever happened to PipeFriendCHS and all the other pipe presenters on youtube?
>>1386673Billy Budd used to be my favorite. If they still make Havana Daydream, I always considered it a very similar blend, just slightly mellower.
every pipe tobacco I have ever tried just burns my mouth really bad. Do I just have shitty tobacco or is this normal? I smoke cigarettes and cigars and have never had that happen.
>>1392533Likely smoking too fast, or tobacco is too humid.
>>1392533That’s called tongue bite, and it’s a small steam burn caused by steam going up the mouthpiece and condensing on your tongue. You’re probably either smoking too fast, packing your tobacco too tightly, have pipe tobacco that is too wet, or some combination of the three. Fill your pipe looser than you think you should, and smoke it slower than you think you ought to. Also, test your tobacco’s moisture by pinching it. If it feels at all damp it’sbtoo wet, if it crumbles it’s too dry, and if it is dry but springs back it’s just about right.
>>1392561When folk say smoke slower does that mean put the stem to your mouth less often, or when you inhale do it slowly? Does slowly also mean deeply? I am never sure if I am taking in too much or too little.
>>1392650Puff less frequently. Depth and duration doesn't matter as much.
>>1392650Both. Take puffs less often, and draw in more lightly when you do. If you just keep sucking at the pipe repeatedly, there’s no time for the moisture at the bottom of the pipe to escape any other way than up the stem and into your mouth. Letting the pipe rest a little between puffs will give any moisture that builds up time to evaporate away, up through the bowl and away from your mouth. This is also why packing more loosely is important: it allows the moisture to escape before it builds up and turns into tongue bite or foul tasting condensation. Likewise with your draw. You’re not sucking a milkshake through a straw, more like sipping a glass of water. The slower and easier you go, the better the flavors and the better experience you will have.
>>1392667I am very grateful thank you
biking&piping comfy af in fall
Is a churchwarden good for a first time smoker?
>>1392874If you're planning to walk around with it, no. If you're going to be sitting and smoking, sure. Churchwardens are great.
I'm thinking about switching from the hand made pipe I use now to hand rolled cigarettes in order to save pack weight. Can anyone recommend cigarette papers? I'm thinking Elements or Juicy Jay's but those boat really bad.
>>1392894Did you make it out of pic related?A briar pipe weighs fuck all, are you serious?
>>1392874I’d go with a standard sized pipe to start. First off, they’re going to be cheaper. The MM cob pipe in the OP is $7, while a churchwarden is most not. Even the cheap ones are going to cost about $20 or more. Second, churchwardens came about before the use of briar, when pipes were mostly clay, and the long stem kept your fingers away from the flaming hot bowl.With briar now on the scene, you don’t need a pipe to be that long. Wood is a much better insulator than fired clay, so your fingers aren’t burnt when you grab a hot pipe, even by the bowl. Third, churchwardens are too long to really be good for /out/ stuff. Long stems are fragile, and ceramic is not very tolerant of being bounced around day after day. Which is why their realm was confined to places where people were mostly stationary, like houses, taverns and warden-houses in places like churchyards and prisons. When people were really going to be doing /out/ things with their pipes, they wanted them either short and light so they could go into a pocket without breaking, easily replaceable or both. So reed-stemmed clay pipes (which break down easily and the thing most likely to break is found growing wild alongside every river and creek on three continents) are the most common types of the pre-briar era’s /out/ pipes. The clay bowls were small, compact, easy to make and cheap, while the reed for the stem was basically free.
>>1392894In my experience, those are terrible papers. I've had positive experience with J.O.B 1 1/4's (I just prefer 1 1/4's in general, as they're longer), RAW, or just plain Zig Zags. I don't smoke pot anymore, but they all work really well for tobacco too. If you can stand the company that owns RAW, they burn really slow and evenly, and they're all natural hemp paper.
Just picked up a polished antique Nimrod from eBay. I love it. It's great.
>>1392533just take a real slight hit, if i take a big one it burns my mouth. doesn't take much.
>>1393186also too clean a pipe seems to burn more. and maybe using alcohol to clean it.
>>1393188but it cleans it so good, idk what else you could use. fellas?
>>1392033I will check it out. I think I read some things about it on the internet, too.. thanks for the tip
>>1392025I posted earlier that I just bought some Billy budd, so yeah they're still a thing
what are some interesting, quirky, weird or "must try" tobaccos
>>1393239I've been meaning to try a Lakeland blend at some point, but I keep forgetting to look for some. People seem to either love them or hate them. The biggest criticism seems to be that they smell and taste like soap and/or your grandmother's handkerchiefs.
Smoked 2 full flakes of Peterson Irish flake in my meerschaum. Really knocked me out lol. Kick back at the campfire
>>1393239Sutliff’s Mixture 79 is one. It’s like the American version of a Lakeland, very herbal and supposedly Hugh Hefner's favorite blend when he smoked. To get the best out of it, you need to smoke it SLOW, and definitely try it in a different pipe than your favorite until you’re sure you like it. It can ghost a pipe like nobody’s business.
Just picked these up today. Both of them are prettt nice. The Irish Oak is quite mild, and the Erinmore Flake reminds me of a University Flake with less plumb.
>>1395486Did you like the university flake? I'm going to buy a new tin of tobacco tomorrow, a Samuel Gawith or a Peterson, don't know which one yet. Any recommendations? (Pretty new to pipesmoking; I've had Kentucky Bird and Dunhill Nightcap already and liked the dunhill best)
>>1396233I just picked it back up after a few years hiatus. I remember liking University Flake but I would always have mostly Latakia blends in my rotation, and would only go for other varieties here and there.If you're interested in University Flake you might try the Erinmore first. UF was quite syrupy, per my memory, and was a bit of a finicky smoke. The EF has very similar qualities but with the...well...dankness, I suppose, dialed back.Nightcap was among my favorites and it's sad to see it going again. I also loved Billy Budd and Habana Daydream from C&D and the whole Frog series from McClelland but that's apparently gone now too.
>>13962331792 Flake from SG is one hell of a dark flake, and a personal favourite of mine. But if you want something lighter and more all-day, Squadron Leader is a solid but mild English.On the Peterson side, I like Sherlock Holmes. It tastes like it smells, and it smells like an air-cured Virginia tobacco barn.
Always thoughts tying it together with cord was kinda odd but I have never tried it myself >Mors will die within soonMakes me sad, but he lived a life full of adventure
>>1372402Hallo mein deutscher Outdoorfreund! Ich rauche auch ziemlich gerne den early morning pipe. Kannst du mir zufällig gute Literatur zur Jagd empfehlen? Sowas wie Ferdinand von Raesfeldt?
>>1396265>>1396543Tobacconist here didn't have what I was looking for so I picked a Dunhill Mixture 965 instead
>>1374584Go with Virginia/Perique Blends. Natural flavor and plenty of nicotine. Briar Fox and Blockade Runner by Cornell and Diehl are favorites of mine.
>>1370732Cigars all taste like the same shit. You end up having to pay 60 dollars for one good quality cigar which is almost always a letdown. Meanwhile, you can buy the best pipe tobacco for like 12 bucks and you can get 20 bowls from one tin.
>>1380533Dry your tobacco out before you smoke it if you're having relighting issues.
>>1393386Kendal Flake is probably my favorite lakeland blend.
>>1397437reliable choice. I'm stocking up hella hard on EMP, nightcap and 965 since dunhill is closing shop for it's pipe tobacco.
Someone give me the 3 best tobaccos to start with that I can buy at a local store. Thanks.
>>13975561) one of the following: -Dunhill Early Morning Pipe-Dunhill My Mixture 965-Dunhill Nightcap2) Some aeromatic. Just ask to smell their jars of whatever you think will smell nice3) A virginia blend -3 Nuns is a good one if they have it. I'd actually advise against going aeromatics because all the sugar can make it harder for newbies to start with. Same with any oriental blends.
>>1397561I have a few cheap aeromatics my uncle gave me. disgusting. I prefer the taste of tobacco. What do you think of frog morton? My uncle swears by the stuff, that and prince albert. but he's an old guy ya know?
>>1397556Erinmore flake and University flake are both great semi aromatics made with quality tobacco. Dunhill Early morning pipe is a very good choice too. It's a light English blend that you can sip on without getting a hard nic hit . I feel that Nightcap would be too strong for a beginner
>>1397563Great series of Tobaccos but then again everything McClelland made was top notch. I think my favorite Frog Morton was On the Town. Nothing tasted like it and nothing can even compare to it. Too bad they went out of business. I wish they would just sell their recipes to someone else .
>>1397563There are some really good Aromatics out there. Shouldn't dismiss them all.
>>1397563>>1397584He’s right - don’t be quick to dismiss aromatics. True, the American style of heavily cased cavendish isn’t everyone’s taste, but a solid British aromatic like Ennerdale is a completely different ballgame. It’s a typically unsourced but accepted claim that British law prevented blenders using artificial flavouring in their blends. So in response, blenders instead used natural flavourings that were available at the time. You’re talking rosewater and other floral additives, rum, whisky, liquorice and tonquin. Ennerdale (Lakeland/Rose/Geranium), 1792 (Tonquin) and Navy Flake (Rum) are primary examples of historical English aromatics. These days there are no such restrictions, and the primary differentiator between American and British aromatics is the presence of cavendish, with British blends generally being a mix of Virginia and Burley with a top coat of something, rather than a cavendish blend. With that said, there’s nothing stopping any side of the Atlantic making either type. We have a great Lane 1Q knockoff called ‘American delite’ that GH make.
Anyone want to trade with me?I recently got 2 tins and 5 pouches of J.F Germains Special latakia flake and I wouldn't mind trading one .
I'm pretty impressed with this Irish Oak so far. I'm especially appreciative of how forgiving it is when it comes to tongue bite and gurgling. I smoked cigarettes for the last three years and only quit about 7 months ago, so coming back to pipes and remembering to slow things down has been difficult.Even the Erinmore Flake is pretty good in those regards. It takes quite well to the sort of circular breathing techniques I used to use i for flakes.
>>1397563I think I would’ve liked to try Frog Morton, but since they closed down I don’t think I’ll ever get the chance.
>>1397833Cavendish isn’t a tobacco, but rather a process by which tobacco is steamed to become more neutrally flavored and amenable to taking outside flavors. Both Virginia and Burley can be Cavendished. Nowadays the primary difference between American and British aromatics is the base tobacco that is cavendished and used for the blend. American blends are primarily Burley-based, whereas British aromatics tend to be Virginia-based.
>>1398596Are there any blends that use non-flavored cavendish? I've only ever tried cased cavendishes, but I'd like to see the natural product. I want to try growing tobacco next year, and I'm curious if it's worth cavendishing some of it. Seems like a fairly simple process.
>>1398705There are some Black Cavendishes around which are minimally flavored, usually with just sugar, but that’s probably as close as you’re going to get.
>>1370732Cheap cigars are fine, but paying a whole lot for a dog turd rolled up in a tobacco leaf is just wasteful
>>1397553Been thinking about stocking up too but I don't have a lot of money that I can miss so a 50gr tin of each will cost me like 50 euro's already, not sure how much I'd like to spend on it.
>>1370693Dunhill Nightcap or any good stanky Oriental around a fire right at dusk
>>1399173buy from the states and tell that to write that its not tobacco on the shipping form
>>13991734noggins sells internationally. Can't speak for Europe, but they know how to send stuff to leafland without arousing suspicion. I very much enjoy ordering "filter accessories" from them.
>>1393065That’s a shit lighter u got there brah
>ctfl+f "snus">0 resultsdesu I'm planning to switch back to cigars and pipes since it's too easy to stay buzzed all day with snus, even if I love it
>>1397576gorgeous pipe anon, well done
>>139968306 is my city
Stupid question from a pipe smoker beginner: What do you think of an "Oom Paul", or whatever you call where you live? Are they good for /out/ings?
>>1400688It's a pipe shape. Pick the one you like the best and go for it, it makes virtually no difference. The only thing to note is that if you like to clench, bent pipes like an Oom Paul bring the center of mass closer to your face, so there's less tension on the jaw. Clenching a straight pipe takes slightly more effort. But ultimately, the biggest deciding factor for most people is aesthetics. If you like the shape, go for it.
Bikin' n pipin' It's getting a bit nippy lads
>>1388414You probably smoking too much. Try something with less nicotine. It’s best when you don’t even know you’re affected by N, you just feel slightly calm and focused for no reason
>>1400688I think the shape is cool, but I wouldn’t buy one. I smoke out of the wind and hold my pipe in my mouth. As a result, anything that hangs so close to the jaw ends up getting smoke right up in my face and into my eyes. For this reason I stick to half bents (i.e. Peterson 999) or full bents light enough I can clench it forward instead of letting it hang.
>>1400688love it, i had a nice rusticated Comoy one but sadly i lost it while /out/ somehow
>>1401368This was it. It's most likely rotting on the forest floor but I hope someone found it and took it home
>>1401368>>1401375definitely keeping my eyes open for a new one, been looking at the Volkan ones but i havnt gone to look at them in person yet
>>1380108thats one thicc boi
>>1401375Man, this pic is just what I have in mind for my /out/ings, even the pinewoods.
>>1401425Can't remember if that trip was before or after new years 17-18 Might be fun recreating the pic
>>1389603Smoke sparingly and don’t inhale.
>>1370693I used to smoke a pipe all the time, but I've switched to cigars because of less attention needed to smoke them. But I still enjoy a bowl every now and then.
>>1370732Frog Morton is God tier, cigar nigger
>>1401532>Frog MortonI'm very curious now...
>>1401744Maybe if I try with one of these ...
>>1393579How do you smoke IF? In the run they are so wet I can’t even light them and when I dry them enough for them to light one folded/rolled flake makes many big strands that are way too loose in the bowl to smoke reliably.
>>1389603make sure you get a pipe with filters, and use them that might help.
>>1401782Could always dry it to the appropriate level, rub it out, and pack normally. I've found I have more control when I do this to flakes, rather than folding and stuffing.
>>1389603Brush your teeth, use alcohol free mouthwash, use balsa or charcoal filters (Savinelli already had the EU validate that their filters remove 70% of tar), drink something non-alcoholic while smoking, stop smoking when you get tongue bite or have any other oral issues. Don’t smoke every day and don’t inhale. Stuff you potentially already do.If you do all that, you’ll reduce your risk below that of any study on oral cancer and pipe smoking that exists today, since they all assume daily smoking without filters and don’t consider proactive oral care.
>>1401745>>1401744Sadly out of production now.
>>1401782In flake form they are harder to light than normal. To really smoke them right, you need to rub the flakes out. Put half a flake into your hand and rub it between your palms until it is broken up and stringy, then put into your pipe and light up. Should light and smoke like a charm.
>>1385792Thats a Vauen "Gandalf" from their LotR line of pipes and tobaccosoverpriced hipster shit imo
>>1385792>>1385970never really fell too much in love with churchwardens, im more of clenching man
>>1401491I can not wait to get a new pipe, go out and to try to recreate this set
>>1372338roll your own, not difficult just takes practice, then you can smoke Bali Shag or Drum, which has the taste you seem to be asking for. Maybe see if you like American Spirits?
>>1402944a plow-point tarp shelter is a great configuration for one man shelter, just make sure to angle it so you can at-least comfortably sit up inside. how big is your tarp?
>>1403133It's a 3x3mt tarp I won. It's enough for a 2mt guy? Actually, this is the first time I intend to go out in this style. I already had sleep in cheap dome tents when I go fishing or just out, but now I want really go deep /out/. >inb4: "Someone say: what a noob!"Yes, maybe I'm a big noob, but I want to learn and change it. That's why I ask for help.
>>1403133Oh, and thanks for the ideas, I really thinking to use this style of shelter.
>>1401399It is, the bowl never gets hot and it sits perfectly. The average smoke time is about an hour.
>>1403670>>1403672a 3x3 is perfect, actually the tarp you see in the pic is 2,90 x 2,48 m which was an ass because it was asymmetrical, i have since upgraded to a 3x3m myself, go on a day with good weather to get your feet going. finding level ground is crucial, you will wake up dreading life if nothaving some ground protection is nice, in the pic its just a ripped up trash bag.tie one corner to the tree first, at slightly below or at head height depending on wind, if theres more wind, lower it down, then place the opposite peg to the tree, then the other two and your donelay it into the wind obviouslymake sure you have a good sleeping bag and pad, perhaps collect natural padding like spruce bundles but please dont cut them off live trees, just to get a little more below you. and, a bivy bag if there is risk of rain, and then selecting a good site is VERY important so i would say only go in good weather until you get the hang of itand thats about all i can think of right now
>>1403803These are solid advices. Thanks for the tips!
>>1387238Tfw no /out/ bfAlso to be on topic nice pic.
>>1404536This is a pipesmoking thread, not a polesmoking one.
getting better at rolling tobacco. But I like pipe too. tastes kinda funny though.
>>1387238What pipe is that? Love the rusticated look and that scene is comfy
Man I love me some aged burly flake. Smells like a tobacco barn and tastes like raisins.
>>1374691go to a good state and buy tobacco
>Love smoking>Smoking is bad for you>Feel a little guilty every time after I smoke Fuck
>>1405988>>Smoking is bad for youNot for pipe smoking. At least, there is no empirical evidence that suggests this is the case, over nonsmokers.
>>1405988life is bad for you anon
>>1405988Im a doctor and can confirm that you are going to die at some point.
Got gifted this old porcelain pipe for helping a friend clean up an axe head and putting a handle on it.
The top bit can be taken off but the wood stem and the tobacco chamber seems super stuck. Any advice on cleaning it up? I would like to clean it thoroughly before use
And here's the axe, still needs some work
>>1407098Yea, theres like a German name for ´em but i dont speak that filth so i cant remember
>>1407098>>1407165I think in English they're generally described as a Tyrolean/Bavarian/German pipe. Sometimes a "hunter's pipe". I forget the German word as well, I know I've seen it before.
>>1407165>>1407179Gesteckpfeife(which is hard to translate directly, something along the lines of 'arrangement pipe' maybe?)
>>1407182>ed as a Tyrolean/Bavarian/German pipe. Sometimes a "hunter's pipe". I forget the German word as well, I know I've seen it before.>>>>Anonymous 12/01/18(Sat)15:39:07 No.1407Gesteckpfeifen, jaegerpfeifen, tyrolean pipe. All acceptable names.
>>1373624Ha, that was my first thought. Pipe is too long and has no vinyl bit, probably not him.
>>1407091can anyone tell me what the stuff you see here is? on theese >>1407518 it looks like cork, but here it seems like it could be leather or something? it is kind of flaking off, should the porcelain of the bowl just sit flush with the porcelain of the V shaped part?
>>1408721i am strongly considering taking it apart, replacing the wood with something i find myself and maybe using a bit from a MM cob
Liberated the bowl from the rest. Seems to have been affixed with some kind of Linnen, bandaid like material. Has definitely been smoked before. Pretty gunky
My bike light is strong enough to shine through the porcelain, interesting
>>1408899Pretty good way to see the gunk. Neat
Keep finding these clear tape pieces on it. Wonder why previous owners did that
>>1408944Good stuff, but I have to say despite its name and out of all the pipes here on /out/ the Tyrolean pipe is not very /out/. In fact, if I am not mistaken they were made the way they were so you could post it up on the table/bar and use your free hand to manipulate your stein or beer mug. Still cool tho.
>>1390446Is that a Ronson Lighter?
>>1408991Yes it is, an old Ronson Standard. Love the thing, and it keeps fluid better than any Zippo ever. Not as good in the wind, it must be said, but still lights a pipe easily enough.
Hey, I'm looking for a good pipe lighter as a christmas gift for my father.Shouldn't be too small since he has big hands, should be fueled by buthane and in the price range of about $50.I already looked at the Xikar Scribe that was posted but apparently the fuel reservoir is really small...
>>1408944Is it tape? I've had old dried gloss/varnish come off just like tape.
>>1409310Zippo makes a pipe lighter that is really good. Additionally, if you want any custom design for your lighter, Zippo will put a pipe insert into any standard lighter for free if you send it to them.
>>1409413im pretty sure it is tape, completely uniform in shape. smoked it today, smoked well enough, really fucking need a strong draw though to keep it going. very cool smoke though
>>1409456Zippo doesn't use buthane though. Also I think a taller lighter would fit his hands better.
>>1409461Go full aesthetic m8
>>1409577OR, he could go into the Walmart kitchen section and get a box of Diamonds for 93¢, and it will work just as well. But either way, it’s not really the butane lighter he said he wants.
>>1409310I've had a Kiribi Kabuto for a few years, and it's been great. Slightly higher price range than you're asking for (ie. $20 more), but seems to be the closest you can get to IM Corona Old Boy quality without paying Corona prices, and the flip lever on the Kabuto is a great design feature. You can get similar lighters for cheaper (Peterson, 4th Generation, Xikar, and some random no-name chink ones), but based on reviews, the quality becomes less consistent.
>>1409610Diamonds aren't as aesthetic. It's gotta say PIPE match or TOBACCO match.I guess you could create a custom case for the matches and poor them in, but it's not the same.
>>1406030absolutely delusional. any combustion fumes in your lungs is a bad thing. period. if this is how you justify smoking to yourself then i suggest you stop. smoking, whether it be from a pipe, cig, whatever is inherently bad for you and no amount of pseudoscience and mental gymnastics will change that. That being said, there is nothing wrong with, as an informed individual, making the decision to smoke despite the health risks as I and probably everyone in this thread has done
>>1409627OK, don't take my word for it. Is the CDC a credible enough source for you? See>>1390451Obviously inhaling smoke is more harmful than not. So is going outside and being exposed to sunlight or drinking hot water. Our concern is the threshold of exposure that causes demonstrable and consistent health issues, not whether some minute amount of damage technically occurs.

>>1409643>death rates are the only important statisticwe're reaching delusion levels that shouldn't even be possible
>>1409643>going outside and being exposed to sunlight is more harmful than not?????i understand that you're trying to make an analogy but this was maybe the worst comparison you possibly could have made
>>1408944That’s probably clear gloss varnish. Most of those intricate designs were decals held on by the varnish.
Building up my cellar after years of not smokingPipes, left to right: Mario Grandi, Capitello Corinzio, Mario Grandi. Looking to trade away the leftmost MG soon and pick up a Savinelli 623. All these pipes are from 2008-2012 and I'm not into huge bowls anymore.Tobacco: Early Morning Pipe, Irish Oak, Erinmore Flake, Westminster, Autumn Evening, Blue Ridge (Appalachian Trail). Next order is going to consist of Plum Pudding, Billy Budd, Jolly Old Saint Nick, Triple Play, and 1Q. I was always very into Englishes before but VaPer blends are starting to pique my interest, and I'm also venturing out into light aromatics for the first time.
>>1409175I am currently working on restoring an old ronson standard. Looking forward to my first smoke with it.
>>1409627t. idiot extrapolating evidence from statistical associations or just talking shit.examine the hard evidence. tobacco is incapable of inducing cancer in healthy animals subjects. it actually has anti-carcinogenic effects, which is why QUITTING SMOKING can trigger cancer if done abruptly
>>1410011small brain:>producing a conclusion through multiple trials and scientific evidenceBIG brain:>arriving at a conclusion through anecdotal evidence and a story about some woman in france
Anyone ever had the tobacco RAF morning? I like it.
Used to smoke a pipe almost daily. Shit is just so enjoyable and makes you relax because otherwise you'll burn your tongue.Sucks that it stains your teeth every time you smoke it, which i why i quit.
>>1410189>ignored the first several studies in the post>doesn't realize there never were any experimental clinical trials to determine if tobacco was harmful>didn't study tobacco enough to realize it has anti-aging mechanisms like KLOTHO induction and MAO inhibition.
>>1390451Whats a pipefull? Is a filled bowl considered a pipefull? Or is it a full puff on the pipe?
>>1409651>death rates are the only important statisticDeath rates are a useful measure of how harmful a thing is, particularly when comparing various forms of tobacco use. It's an extremely common metric, are you retarded?>>1410508A full bowl, obviously. Who the fuck puffs less than 10 times on a pipe?
>>1410611No clue but at the same time ten bowls a day seemed just as crazy excessive to me to the point that it warranted clarification
>>1373523I smoked a pipe every day for a month and one with a big bowl, didnt get addicted, just stopped after a month because i didnt have the 1-2 h a day for smoking.
