Happy 50th thread everyone.

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:

Savinelli. They just feel kinda nice in your hand, ya know?

I've got a pisa 673ks (sadly the stem is chewed to hell and back, and it's $80 for a new one), and I can agree that it does feel great. Saw that peterson though, and started wonderin.
>>
>>2125259
I’ve got both a Peterson and a Savinelli. Different models from the ones being discussed though. I will say the Peterson smokes more consistently, but the Savinelli has ergonomics and aesthetics going for it. Both are great smokes but the Savinelli just requires more technique. It might be that the bowl on it is slightly bigger and it has a wider draught hole.
>>
>>2125167
Savinelli. The Peterson has a P-lip, which is sort of weird to clench.
>>
>>2125368
>McConnell seems to be a difficult brand to get a hold of, same with McClelland
McConnell comes into the US about once a quarter. we're a few weeks away from the next shipment so everybody's out right now. McClelland closed up shop years ago, so the only way you're gonna find it is some *really* old stock in some "tobacco" shop, or from somebody like who realized he can't fucking stand smoking ketchup anymore.

best thread on .out./ hands down. Sup fellas?
how often do you clean your pipe?
how often you swap filters? do you filter?

anyone recommend a good sampler / assortment pack for non-aromatics?
>>
Fug, just ordered a kilogram of baccy last night lol. Sure hope it's good.
>>
>>2125167
I like the Peterson shape better and it's not filtered which is nice (why do so many Savinellis take filters?), but in general Savinelli feels like better quality than Peterson at similar price points. Peterson has some QC issues 2bh. I'd probably go with the Sav.
>>
>>2125169
It's not. Perique can be made from any tobacco since it's the processing that matters. I don't recall offhand what particular varieties they generally use but I can assure you it is 100% not rustica.
>>
>>2125444
>why do so many Savinellis take filters
because yurops love their filters so they can smoke their candied danish tobaccos.

savinelli filters are the least objectionable filters though, they're just this little triangular chunk of balsa, the smoke flows around the sides and the balsa absorbs some of the moisture. they hardly affect the taste at all. and you can make your own with balsa from your local hobby shop.
>>
>>2125438
Clean my pipes after every smoke, well at least a quick run through with a pipe cleaner. I don't care for filters.

Good sampler for non aros? I'd say some kind of English maybe, some straight Virginias or Vapers, a good burley, and probably a VaBur, maybe something with Orientals. I guess just go buy a bunch of 1 oz bulk stuff and see what you like.
>>
>>2125447
Makes sense I guess. How do they smoke if you leave the filter out?

>>2125446
>I don't recall offhand what particular varieties
then you're just talking shit. some of us grew up in that area and helped harvest that tobacco. it's a local strain of rustica. you'll sometimes see it referred to as "st james" tobacco which is a good clue that it's not a burley or virginia or cigar strain. that particular tobacco strain has been grown in st james parish since the indian times, the difference between the indian tobacco and modern perique is the way it's fermented using barrels and presses instead hammering plugs of tobacco into cypress logs.
>>
>>2125457
its showing up again. turns out the disruption was due to the manufacturer moving production to the dominican republic.
>>
>>2125438
>good sampler / assortment pack for non-aromatics
there are none. all the samplers are "5 slightly different versions of the same thing".

just buy a selection of 2oz samples or tins. McConnell Scottish Cake (va/bur/per), Balkan Sasieni (balkan), McConnell Pure Virginia (Va), Stokkebye Proper English (english), Rattray Red Rapparee (oriental), Rattray Black Mallory (Scottish)
>>
>>2125484
I watched a documentary from the primary producer of it, just been a while and I don't remember all the details. It's not fucking rustica though, quite making shit up.
>>
>>2125488
>i watched a documentary
well aren't you the selfmade fucking expert. he makes two types of perique, "Acadian" perique which is made with burley, and "St James" perique which is made with the st james. the st james perique is the traditional perique, a few years ago he started using burley as well because (a) all the st james is grown in a small area of st james parish, so any adverse weather affects the entire crop and (b) burley is a fuckton cheaper and will ferment fine if you add a bit of sugar to it first.
>>
>>2125438
I do a quick clean of my pipe after every smoke, and then deep clean all of them once I finish a full rotation of pipes.

I only use a filter with a few pipes that require it because otherwise I'd be sucking up tobacco. Filter gets changed after every smoke. I tried going back to back once with some of those Savinelli balsam filters and I could definetely taste the wet/stale/acidic used filter mixing in with the fresh tobacco. They're cheap and only two of my pipes need them, so I change frequently.

As far as non-aromatics, check out some of the Seattle Pipe Club stuff. If you can get a sampler with some Potlach in it that'd be good. It has a smokey-incense type sweetness to it.
>>
>>2125490
The St. James tobacco still isn't rustica though.

I run a pipe cleaner through my stem and wipe out my bowl every smoke, and deep clean them whenever they start to smell weird or taste bad.

I almost got to smoke for the first time yesterday but the in-laws came home right after I got my son to sleep. I may go smoke at the local public park on a rainy day when it's empty and I can hide under an overpass bridge. Hopefully I don't get fined, but it's unlikely since there's never anyone there in the rain. I tried finding some good tree cover away from footpaths but I couldn't spot any good ones.

Found the followin in "Tobacco-Discussion" by J. B. Killebrew and William H. Glasson (1903):
If time permitted, I might go on and tell how variant are the tastes and fancies of the different nations in the selection of the types of tobacco to be consumed by them. The Norwegians and Swedes, for instance, want the strongest tobacco grown, which they are said first to chew, then to smoke, and then to snuff the ashes. The Germans want the "black fats" and also a sweet tobacco, of fine stem and fibre, cherry red in color or mottled with yellow. It must be porous so as to take in the sauces with which it is treated in its manufacture. This is known in the American markets as the German saucer. The French requirements call for a milder red tobacco, or the White Burley types; the Italians want tobacco of a dark brown color, strong, smooth and silky in texture; the Austrians want a type of solid fine texture and glossy sheen, of uniform brown color, tough and stretchy ; the Spanish take the lowest grades of lugs and light types ; the English take many sorts, but one essential requirement is that they must be absorbent, strong and elastic in texture, that the tobacco may be spun into rope-like strands. The negroes of Africa take the longest tobacco that is shipped from America. This, they make into a large cigar, not less than twenty- six inches in length, soak it in lard or palm-oil and then the whole tribe sit in a circle and smoke until they become deliriously intoxicated. Nearly all foreign nations prefer tobacco cured by fire. The Americans prefer that cured without fire or smoke.

I enjoyed your bickering so much that I put my autism to work in order to find out myself. In "American Tobacco Types, Uses, and Markets" by Charles E. Gage from 1942 the author describes perique tobacco production on page 58-60 and directly follows it by describing rustica, which he states "is not used for human consumption in this country but only for manufacture into nicotine sulfate, insecticides, etc.". With this I conclude that perique is not rustica as perique was produced for human consumption in the US at the time. I also checked 10+ different sites online where they sell "Perique tobacco seeds", and whenever it was specified it said "Nicotiana Tabacum", not rustica. I would be very interested in seeing if you can find a source saying perique tobacco is rustica, though.

rustica has small round leaves, perique has tabacum shaped leaves and a lower nicotine content

Form factor doesn't appear to be much worse then a MacArthur cob, and the frozen glycerin coil this thing uses apparently works better then anything for cooling down smoke.

Long Island, where smoking in parks is not permitted, but mostly policed by the public so I just need to find areas or times where I won't disturb anyone, like during a downpour. I'm living with my in-laws who don't allow smoking anywhere near their property and I work in a hospital so I can't smoke near my job either. Not allowed to smoke in the car because the in-laws use it on occasion. We're working on moving within the next two years so you don't need to pray for me friend.

that's because tobacco doesn't need any cooling. tongue bite is a chemical burn caused by alkaline tobacco, not by heat. once tobacco manufacturers figured that out in the early 1900's, they adjusted the pH with their casings and pretty much solved that problem.

All rusticated Nording pipes are like this. I actually like the aesthetic, myself. What I really think is cool are his animal-inspired pipes, but they're kinda pricey even as estates. Not as bad as Tsuge Ikebana, but still.
>>
>>2126429
You can indeed. For me up here in leafland, it's actually cheaper to buy tobacco online from burgertown and get it shipped up here, even after the shipping costs. The taxes on tobacco up here are retarded, but as long as you keep it under a certain amount (weight and value), you don't pay them on imports. Also, importation is the only way you're going to get anything flavored, and call me a faggot, but I like my aromatics.
>>
>>2126459
duly noted, thanks! with the taxes, is it calculated on a per order basis or is there some annual limit? i remember looking at cbsa import regs a few years ago when i wanted to import exotic plants, but it's been a while so i'm foggy on the details.

Taxes are calculated based on the weight and dollar value of your tobacco. More weight, higher rate. Under a certain weight they don't tax it at all, which is why some poor guy at Smokingpipes regularly has to ship 1-2oz bags of bulk tobacco from SC all the way up to northern NS.

Peterson's VA flake has a nice balance of citrus/hay and the bready tastes of Virginias. Orlik Golden Slices and Capstan Blue are great for brighter VAs. I like to have a big glass of unsweetened tea w/ a lemon when I smoke bright Va's. It helps accentuate those tasting notes you mentioned.

Tastes good, very stout and hearty. The fine shag burns great too, it's the kind of cut you can just scoop up in your pipe and smoke without issue, burns fast but somehow stayed cool. Got a nice amount of vitamin N too. I only grabbed 2 oz, but seems like something worth keeping a big jar full of.

Maybe, if you're into English blends. Though a review over on >>>/reddit/ mentioned that it's quite mediocre and just a way for Sutliff to sell generic stuff for a higher price. I don't know though, I've never smoked it and don't care for English blends.

I just take a Briarwood that looks like something a sea captainfrom the 1800s would smoke I got from eBay, some matches, and some Captain Black Royal out. I think it's pretty weird to CONSOOM pipes and pipe accessories.
>>
>>2129061
Consooming implies consumption because you're told to or purely for the sake of it, consumption without thought. Most of us, I like to think, hang on to our pipes for a good, long time and don't really feel the need to constantly be buying more. Then again, I'll admit I own eight, which is a bit more than one really needs.
>>
>>2129061
Even if it is consooming, who cares?

We are at the end of a full century of decline in pipe smoking. Pipes have never been more available, nor cheaper to get.

what do you guys think is a good aromatic to start with that the misses won't get too uppity about? sweet killarney not too stinky?
>>
>>2129684
missus*

Also, if you smoke more outside than inside, then use that time for your Latakias, Orientals, and other "stinky" tobaccos. Aromatics are often more for others than yourself.

I say experiment. A lot of people associate the scents of cherry and apple tobaccos with what their grandfather smoked, from what I've heard where I am. But that also changes by region, it seems.

I'm partial to most not-cherry Captain Black blends. Lane 1Q is about the standard of entry-level aromatic, and is basically common enough that it's a familiar scent. I've never tried Sweet Killarney. But try it and find out, and try others as well. See what you like, what she likes indoors, and figure out together which tobaccos will be for back porch smokes, and which will be for inside only.

Got a Missouri born cob, the 'volcano' one that has a bit of red corn on the outside. It's nice for that, but it looks like they started to drill for the stem on the other side than where the stem is. I originally thought it was just a nick but its the same space where the stem would go. Needless to say, I don't like that. It was a 15$ corn cob, I would expect them not to give me essentially a damaged one. Makes me second guess if I want to get a Shire cobbit or skip over to a briar.

If there's production error on your cob, take a picture and send it either to the place you bought it or to MM themselves. I'm sure they will be able to find a suitable solution, most likely send you a new one. Also, please post the picture here for our entertainment.
>>2130057
Just your first cob or your first pipe in general? Don't know if you're like me, but I would spend a month or two with a cob before investing in a briar. I really fucked my first pipe, a cob, from bad habits and negligence in general. A relatively cheap lesson, I treat my pipes much nicer now.

Good tobacco tastes and feels good, good pipes are cool, and, most importantly, the ritual of packing, lighting and smoking forces you to slow down, takena minute and just breathe. It's decompression and feels meditative.

Eaton is MM’s smallest pipe. Its bowl size is truly tiny. You might want to go up a bowl size to the Legend. That will give you a good 15-20 minute smoke, maybe even up to 30 if you pack it right and smoke it slow.
>>
>>2129999
Pretty self-explanatory.
It involves going /out/ and adding a little extra enjoyment by including a pipe and some tobacco in with your experiences.
It could be fishing, could be hiking, could be bullshitting with friends around a campfire. As long as you feel like doing it with a pipe, it’s ok with us.

First of both. I don't plan to use the briar immediately, I will still use the cob as a learning experience on method first, thank you.

I wouldn't send it back, if it was a pricy one like a cobbit or something definitely but this is for learning so I expect it to get nicked anyway
But it's definitely from some sort of machining not a natural break; same location as the stem

Poland. European Union forced us to make tobacco laws more restrictive few years ago.
Recently I was feeling nostalgic, I wanted to buy some aromatics since I was smoking them at the beginning of my pipe journey, but they're impossible to buy here now :(

Apparently there are some sprays and oils that you can just add to tobacco, let it dry and smoke, but man, it looks even more cancerous than regular smoking.

It does. Damn, I thought Poland was based
fuck the EU
Can you figure out something else, natural, to add to it and let dry ?
>>
>>2130637
>>2130646
I don't know how much this might help, but it used to be the norm to leave a slice of apple or something in a tin of tobacco to help keep it somewhat moist. This would lend a little of the apple's scent, especially if it were a very strongly flavored apple.

Also, welcome to the US after the new aromatic tobacco ban. Or is that only for menthol cigs?

ebay. They tend to be quite expensive since they're a meme pipe and have been for almost a century; Sherlock Holmes never smoked one in the books, but he became associated with the calabash pipe because they used one in stage plays to make it more visible to the audience. When Holmes made the transition to the big screen, the calabash came with him and it's been associated with his image ever since. Ditto the deerstalker cap and half-cape overcoat; Holmes, as a Victorian gentleman, only wore that outfit once in the books, while out in the countryside where such an outfit was appropriate to the weather and environment; he otherwise wore a suit and bowler hat. Again, the outfit was used when it wouldn't be socially appropriate to wear such a thing in the films, and it became part of Holmes' stereotypical appearance along with the calabash pipe.

Despite being hilariously huge, they actually don't hold as much tobacco as you would think.The bowl isn't much bigger than on a normal pipe, and the rest of the size is a combination of wall thickness from the gourd and a cooling chamber for the smoke.

Not a big fan of a small pipe. If I want a quicker smoke I just pack a bowl of something low grade so I don't feel bad about tossing out my leftovers when I'm done. Captain Black is a go-to for that.

This is perfectly in line with how rough MM pipes turn out.

Beautiful day outside. I adore rainy springs, most beautiful time of year.

Picked up a churchwarden. I really like it. Cheap, unsure which wood was used for it but it's fine. Still basically a beginner anyway.

Smoking in the rain is kind of annoying, but it feels great to just sit in it. Pulls you /out/ even if you're just sitting in your backyard.

Both my pipes are quite cheap still, I ordered a nice looking estate briar a few weeks back but it never arrived and I ended up getting a refund. I quit smoking cigs two years ago so was reluctant to touch tobacco in any form, but pipes are totally different. I only smoke mine every 1-2 weeks or so, sometimes even less depending on what I’m doing and where I’m working etc.

I'm reading a book about how native Americans grew crops and in the section about tobacco it says they smoked the blossom but they also mention throwing away the "white part" which I assume is the flower and keeping the "green part".

With cigarettes you inhale smoke into your lungs. With a pipe you don't - you just "taste" the smoke in your mouth and let it go. You'll still probably get cancer, but it will be mouth cancer, not the lung one.

If you want to try a briar for cheap, look at so-called “basket” pipes.
Only 1% of briar roots are suitable for use to make premium pipes, all the rest have flaws in the wood and sand pits that buyers won’t accept in premium pipes, and most of the time they don’t find the flaws until after carving the pipe.
So what to do with the other 99% of pipes that can’t be sold under a brand name?
They dump them onto the market at cost, pipe shops buy them for super cheap put them in basket on the counter by the cash register and pass the savings on to you.
They’re well made and smoke well, if unimpressive, and are the best deals going in briar.

It also gives me a tiny burst of physical energy too but as I said tiny. Too much and it makes me dizzy, gives you a headache, need to lay down etc. I'm quite sensitive to nicotine and it took a little while to work out the proper amount.

Smoked a bowl of old dried out penzance earlier. Meant to smoke it last night but it was windy and raining outside. Wasn't too bad, got some real nice incense notes from it and some actual decent flavors other than just the overpowering waxiness of latakia. Doing this primarily to try to come to terms with the stuff, I used to like english blends way back then I got to where I couldn't stand them, going to just force myself to get used to them again so I can enjoy them in moderation since I've got a fair amount packed away. Later this afternoon, if it's not raining, I'm going to have some rattray's dark fragrant. Tried my first bowl the other day, it's okay I guess but felt incredibly light and I didn't get much from it, but I was smoking in a new clay and with all the wind it burned pretty hot. Going to smoke it in a nice big briar and see if I can get something more from it.

Any of you ever get a tin and just smoke solely that tobacco straight through? I'm wondering if that might help understand a given tobacco better, since I tend to jump around and just smoke all sorts of different stuff, especially with these lighter blends since I think I've blunted my palate a bit with strong flakes.

Another idea I've heard is that your required number of pipes to form a rotation (R) depends on how many bowls you smoke a day (B). R=B+1. This provides a pipe with one day of rest per bowl smoked before you come back to it, so if you only smoke one bowl a day, you would, in theory, need only two pipes. I have many more than I need, but I also like to collect and display them because I think they're cool.

My Grandfather gave me his Lorenzo Oom Paul when I was 15. I treasure that pipe with its thick walled slowly burning deep bowl. The gurgle that starts about half way through, and the smoke that wafts from the bowl to tickle your nose.

Thats new for me, that surpised me too, sorry anon. Maybe an e-mail helps. Well danpipe works as i know, last time i have odered from danpipe was a month ago and i dont see a problem there righ now too. Good luck with finding some interesting tobacco. I know your pain, hungarian tobacco laws are awful
>>2133678
i just dont know, maybe there main location is somewhere else, but as i know they are german
>>
>>2133801
well, 1 pipe should be used maximum once a day and yes i like to collext em too. So in theory for someone who smokes once a day and useing always the same tobacco one pipe should be enugh for the perfect expiriance if he smoes the same time so your pipe has atleast sat more then 20h. But there are many ppl who says that it is even better when your pipe can sit for a week, and it is shurely helps but thats a bit overdoing i think, and yes a bonus pipe always helps

Can anyone recommend something similar to pic related? I got some in a sampler and really enjoyed it, it's got some nice subtle caramel flavours, but I found towards the end of the bowl it got very hot and unpleasant. Part of that might be me being a new smoker but I've not had that problem with other tobaccos.

Meh, going out is pretty relaxing on its own, don't need to add a pipe to that. I get that perhaps the act of cleaning and stuffing the pipe can add to the calming experience, but it just gives me too many hipster vibes.
>>
>>2133928
Yea I know what you mean by hipster vibes, but for some it’s a handed down experience. I can remember my grandfather telling WWII stories with the smell of cavendish filling air. Going bass fishing with my dad while he smoked his pipe, and my uncle smoked cherry cigars. I have a couple pipes, and I don’t smoke them often. Just lighting up brings me to some of my fondest memories, deepest conversations and sage wisdom from my elders.
>>
>>2133928
It never appealed to me until I actually got a whiff of pipe tobacco. "Oh my God," I thought, "tobacco that doesn't smell like fermented dog shit. Maybe I should try it."

>Any of you ever get a tin and just smoke solely that tobacco straight through
yeah. usually followed by ordering 20 tins of it to sock away. mcconnell's scottish flake was the most recent occurrence.
When you're first getting into pipes there's a tendency to want to try everything, but I don't know that it's really a good way to appreciate tobaccos. *everything* tastes good in small bites, but its very superficial, you only really get the dominant notes. as you smoke through a tin you really begin to pick up the subtleties. if you keep it in the tin and not a mason jar then it will also dry out slightly so you get a picture of how it smokes and tastes as it breathes, as it dries out a bit, etc.
when I first started I probably had 15-20 tins open, I had a "rotation" and would sample each one maybe once every 2-3 weeks. then I bought a 1 lb can of balkan sobranie (this was back when it was the real stuff, made by sobranie of london) and since it was such a big can I decided to smoke it "more often" which turned into "every single smoke". the first 50 or so bowls it seemed every bowl showed more complexity than the last. when it was empty I did the same thing to one of my other tins, same result. nowadays I only keep 2-3 tins open, and really don't make a decision on a blend until I'm at least halfway through the tin because some blends *really* change as they breathe and dry out and your taste buds get acclimated to them.

>>2133928
>hipster vibes
when I started smoking a pipe (late 80's) it had a grandpa vibe, so it's interesting to hear someone call it hipster. But then I also wear fedoras and flat caps which at the time also gave off a grandpa vibe. it's funny how times change.
>>
>>2134284
I don't wear a fedora anymore myself. I used to be every leddit stereotype, so between the memories of my own cringe and the association with existing cringe, I choose not to. Shame, they're actually good hats and fit my face well. Luckily, flat caps still work for me.

I smoke my pipe several times a day and I don't have any issues.
Are you guys memeing with those "noo, your pipe needs a day off" posts?

>>
>>2134577
well you will se after 1-10 years of useige
btw this only meant for the briar!!!!
the theorí behind it is to let the wood suck in and disperse the dampness in the pipe
>>
>>2134608
>you will se
I'll see what exactly?
>>
>>2134577
it doesn't cause issues per se, but a briar pipe will smoke a little sweeter if it's allowed to dry out between smokes. somehow through repeated retellings this optimization morphed into "you *must* let your pipe rest X days or it will die"
>>
>>2134640
slow rot, indistinguible taste etc
>>
>>2134646
>slow rot
no
>indistinguible taste
that's just ordinary ghosting. resting doesn't really help that, and ghosting doesn't matter if you just smoke the same blend.
>etc
be more specific faggot
>>
>>2134649
why did you even start a conversation if you straigh up denie anything ppl say to you? I just dont get it, i have warned you. The etc is because there are many litle things can happen to a pipe when overloaded with moisture and you (might) overheat it but thouse have minor probability and all stands on the briar characteristic which is because its natural cant be predicted (every pipe has its own character/fault) just an other example minor cracs, and yes rot can happend, did you know rot is not always biological? It is a slow procces and one might ruin a pipe other way before it would happen, and ghosting and the the taste i speak of diffrent things. BUt do as you wish happy pipeing and wish you cold smoke!

It was a different Anon.
That being said really short, laconic answers aren't that helpful and can cause a lot of confusion (like with that rot thing). Coupled with your awful spelling and bad grammar it looks a bit like you're just taking a piss.

Well its not ‘hipster’ if its handed down generationally. I hope you can keep the tradition alive with your family and that they may have fond memories of you.

>>2134008
Enjoy your pipe sir

>>2134023
So do you, shove your pipe up your ass.

>>2134284
Probably because that generation of grandpa’s is pretty much dead. The link between that generation and the current one is mostly broken (exception being anon above) meaning people just start doing old shit at random in order to stand out or feel Unique or something. These people are hipsters.

As a matter of fact that's an extremely efficient way of getting nicotine in your system.

Yes, but I don't recommend it. Too much, too fast.
>>
>>2132700
>checked
Not so much a combination, but was in the table littler. I keep my sugar and caffeine pretty low too, so on the house to myself day I usually grab a pay-day or whatchamacallit and a diet coke from the gas station, but don't always finish the coke. Once the pipe gets lit it's lazy time so the trash sits a while. It would be a pretty nasty flavor. Rum is my pipe companion (:

I ordered another Missouri Meerschaum Ozark today, I had one before and genuinely loved it but lost it somewhere along the way. I love cobs, and have a briar pipe, but there was just something simple about the Ozark that I really enjoyed. Can’t wait to break it in on a fishing trip next week!

what exactly does drying your leaf out entail? just leaving it open for a week?
>>
Brunello flake in the morning, brown flake scented in the afternoon, but what for the evening? Dark flake scented, or vintage Syrian? Or, for something entirely differnt, crooner?


>>2135720
Depends what you mean. If a bowl of tobacco, just leave it out for a little bit until it's not too moist. If you mean whole leaf or something your grew, fuck if I know lol.
>>
new thread when?
>>
>>2135720
Some blends are have a high moisture content out of the tin. Samuel Gawith blends are notorious for this. Smoking them as is can make your pipe smoke too hot, require more relights and generally give you a worse experience. I've had some blends which are good after 20 minutes and some which needed up to 2 hours. In any case, please do not dry all of it at once. It is much easier to remove than to add moisture. Lay out enough for a bowl on a plate and leave it for 20-40 minutes. Preferably in a well ventilated room and not in direct sunlight. Feel free to experiment as you will notice different blends work well with different drying times.

It's not "hipster" unless you're only doing it to be a fucking hipster. "Oh, look at me! I smoke a pipe to be ironic!"

Fuck 'em all. I smoke a pipe because I like smoking a pipe. Sometimes I prefer a cigar. I've never tried cigarettes. Do what you like. Gatekeeping is bullshit.

How's that tobacco? I've been considering an order.
>>
>>2136118
it's my first time and it was a little moist, but very neutral smoke so it mixed well. I mostly mixed in mint and rosemary from my garden, overall I'm happy I got.it I did spray with some Malibu rum and redried, that was a nice bowl

Pics of CP or didn't happen

>>2136254
So you didn't have the tobacco on its own, but you mixed it with other things to smoke it? That sorts of defeats knowing what that tobacco is like. I don't mix in herbs or spray with other stuff when I smoke.
