I am a mere 23 years old, but have developed an interest in smoking tobacco strictly for enjoyment, which I must confess is rare for a person of my age in my area. I enjoy the fine things in life, but music and the arts are what I enjoy most. I smoke pipes and cigars, but while I smoke a pipe daily, I generally smoke cigars socially.

UPDATE: I have now grown into a 31 year old boy and I have been a pipe smoker on and off through the years, but I am getting back into it. I chose to leave the original bio because I am a sucker for nostalgia. I am now a full time tobacconist at a cigar shop and I am working on growing the pipe business here.

My first pipe was a Dr. Grabow and it smokes fantastic.
