Wood bowl and shank. A stem/bit from a MM freehand.

Sometimes you gotta get the hole wet before you stick it in.

You gotta lick it before you stick it.

I think that's why many of us take up the pipe smoking thing. It starts with memories of when we were kids and pipe smoke, which is a very nice smell usually, nothing like cigarrete smoke. It reminds us of good times.

We get older and for whatever reason try out a pipe. For me, it's nostalgia and good smoking. I like cigars and they are pretty cool. A pipe, it's just different. There is a great quote I read about pipe smokers but don' t remember it.

Seems to be three types of smokers. Something like, and I'll probably not get this quite correct, so anybody feel free to correct. That is quite okay.

Something similar to

Cigaraettes smokers - instant satisfaction
Cigar smokers- Victory!!
Pipe smokers - Patience, satisfaction, endurance.


I probably screwed it all up. Oh well.

Had a pre-Christmas gathering at a friend's house about an hour north of us, stopped by Telford's Pipe Shop on the way home, and ended up picking up two estate pipes, an old Custom Built and BP Jum. Both smoke great!

Give this a try jeep. It works very well but always felt too loose for me early on (when I'd smoke doing yardwork the bowl seemed to finish way too soon).

Now, with a tighter pack, it feels like they take forever to smoke. i may have to revisit this myself to find a happy medium.
There are some great packing tips on that site. Thanks! I tried that method today with much better success than my rookie method (which resembled a minuteman ramrodding a muzzleloader).

I still smoke a pipe on occasion. It reminds me of my dad and his uncle from when I was young. So very relaxing, unwinding and carefree.

Right now, I'm smoking some Christmas Cheer with a Wookey Jack, but there's also some Chocolate Silk, rum & maple, and nutty hazel. All smell amazing, I can't wait to try 'em.
