Anyone smoke pipe tobacco?

I've dabbled with it a bit, mostly out of a very cheap corncob pipe.

Just purchased my first real pipe today off the internet, along with 8 sampler tins of different types of tobacco. I'm pumped for it to get here.

Any tips from experienced pipe smokers?

What kind of pipes do you have and how many?

Here is the pipe I just purchased off of

Tsuge: Arashi Sandblast Bent Dublin Sitter with Plateau

Forget the stuff most stores sell. Go to and poke around. The Virginia #24 is amazing stuff and I've bought about 10 tins online in the past year. Penzance will be my next purchase.

$30 or so. Make sure is fits your hand well.
