  1. The Pipe Hobby How-To Discussion Forum
    Hello all fellow puffers. I am still rather new at pipe smoking and have acquired a Dr. Grabow Riviera from a friend of mine. It's a decent enough pipe but it was treated very poorly. For one, it had a pretty bad cake in the chamber which I've since reamed. The other issue is that the pipe...
  2. The Pipe Hobby How-To Discussion Forum
    Hello all fellow puffers! As you can tell by the title of this thread and my rank on this site, I am new to the world of pipe smoking. Here's my question. I want to do the salt and alcohol treatment on an estate pipe I got as it has a rather nasty ghost. Being as I'm 18, I don't have access...

  4. General Cigar Discussion
    Hi. My roommates and I have been smoking a lot of cigars lately. Nothing impressive. We usually just go to our local shop and pay $7 or so for something; we try something different everytime. Anyways, we're looking to buy a set of say 12 or so. Unfortunately, we really don't know where to buy...

    Hello, one and all. I accidentally discovered I enjoy smoking cigars a couple of months ago, so I'm still learning the basics. Expect me to ask lots of noobish questions for while!
  6. General Cigar Discussion
    Good evening everybody. In a few days I will be attending my first cigar tasting event at my local cigar lounge (which I am very excited about.) However I have never been to a tasting of any sort before and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or tips (or even what to expect for that...

    As most of you probably know CI's weekly deal is the 30 cigar Gurkha Historical Collection. I know many of you don't like Gurkhas, they have more lines than RP and Perdomo combined and a lot of them use very similar blends. I have had the pleasure of trying some of Gurkhas premiums like the...
  8. General Pipe Forum
    Hi I am currently working on a university project, where we have to buy an object for £1 and right about its history. Well I bought a pipe with my pound, but know nothing about it! I imagine that is is a very basic pipe, perhaps a holiday souvenir or something? But I am finding it hard to find...
  9. General Pipe Forum
    Well I'm a novice smoker. Extremely novice. I've had an entire 2 bowls in my life. The thing is, I love the 2 I have had and will surely continue the hobby. Now for the recommendation: Which Dunhill should I buy? I'm inclined to believe that the entire "Dunhill is out of production thing" is...

    I was graciously gifted an A. Fuente 'shortstory' from Gamayrouge @ the Vacaville herf. I felt the least I could do was write up a review with pics. I hear the lack of pics is a sure way to get gifted a box of black & milds at the next herf so I made sure to load up on the photos. Well, I...

  14. Cigar Questions
    Alright. I'm interested in going with one of these cigar samplers so I can get a better idea of what exactly floats my boat. But most of all, this will allow me to move away from the $2 cigar rack with confidence that I'm not wasting my money on something indecent. This will be a truly novice...

  19. Cigar Puffers Introduction Forum
    So I appreciate imbibeing on a cigar from time to time. It's not something I can enjoy on a regular basis so every few weeks or at least once a month I like to treat myself to a nice cigar. I love trying to things and being the odd bean in the bunch. I dig cigars because they are so natural...
