I'm a cigar smoker...thought I would try a pipe. I bought a Missouri corncob pipe.

Update 2/12/2010: I have expanded my collection of tobaccos. I have a Lane Cavendish called Great Flood, McClelland Red Cake, Owl Shop Bancroft Tower, and Watch City Cigar's Nor'Easter. I just ordered some Sam Gawith's Full Virginia Flake to see what all the fuss is about. Can't wait to get it.

Also, bough a basket pipe for $20. It's kinda small and it has to be smoked slow. I also bought a pipe I liked even before I started smoking them. It's a Savinelli Baronet Bruyere 320EX. Kinda looks like an avocado and I love it. Just had the first smoke with it last night...with just 1/4 bowl of Bancroft Tower. Another 1/4 bowl after work. Can't wait

My first, Missouri Meershaum, still have it and use it

Basket pipe, briar, made in Italy, no name on the pipe, though.

Savinelli Baronet Bruyere 320EX
