I started smoking a pipe after I found a few of my great-grandfather's pipes, I've been hooked since. I was in college when I started smoking, back in 2009. The very first thing I bought was Super Value Cherry and a Chinese cob. Since then my knowledge of this great hobby has expanded. I have found that the pipe community as a whole is an association of very wonderful people, and my tutelage must be credited to a great many people within this minority group. I often consider this my favorite hobby. However, it often borders the line of obsession. I often buy a tabac because of its name and name alone. In my opinion, there are no barriers in the world pipe smoking, so I have fun with it. My goal is to experience and enjoy as much as I can.

Decent collection of pipes...I really love turn of the century pipes, CPF is my favorite. I love cuttys and Canadians and Bing Crosbyish pipes.
