A pipe smoker since 2003, I was a non-smoker until I decided to pick up the pipe, in order to relax. I learned to smoke it and love it over the years.

I now have a collection of over a hundred pipes of different brands and makes, and a "cellar" full of tins ageing gracefully (I hope).

I like English blends, Virginias, and Burley blends.

I find the modern pipe-smoking community to be a tolerant and generous group, and I'm glad to be a part of it.

I love your site. Thanks for putting it up!
