Hello everyone. I just received my first pipe and samples from karatekyle and some additional great samples from ProbabteGeek. My question here is what techniques or what steps do you take to ready the tobacco for smoking and then filling the bowl? If there any videos that would accompany...
After much scientific research I have perfected the only proper method to pack a pipe.
1) use 2.4 grams tobacco per 10cm chamber diameter.
2) Pack bottom half of bowl with your forefinger at 15.8 psi
3) Pack top half with forefinger at 26.9 psi.
Or I just dip my pipe in the pouch, push tobacco...
It’s been a while since I’ve been on this forum, and I must say that I am truly happy to be back. In classic Mycroft style, I have another question for you all that I’m sure will show some of my ignorance. So, please bear with me.
A few days ago I decided to finally break...
ok need some help guys, I have this beautiful Peterson sliver sterling estate prince bowl, and I need some help packing it.
I've tried my normal 3 step packing method and it just cloggs the draft hole, gravity fill makes it burn to hot, and flakes really don't work well in a prince shape bowl...
Hello again Gentlemen,
I just had a quick question about packing a pipe, and specifically if your strategies for packing the bowl change depending on what sort of cut the tobacco is. I think I have down packing your average ribbon cut tobacco, but when it comes to flakes and cube cuts I feel...
Has anyone been enjoying a pipe real well, and the tobacco is getting low in the pipe, and just add some more tobacco in the bowl, and then do a quick flame, just to extend the pipe?
Much regards Jerry
So.. I picked up a few cobs and a tin of McConnells Scottish Flake and a tin of Red Rapparee.. And foolishly popped the seal on the flake :P (have not touched the RR tin yet).
the scottish flake is so fragile. Do I crumble it up? Its like very thin super fragile paper rectangles. Not quite sure...
So, my wife is frantically trying to pack, tidy, ocd organize the house/luggage/etc for our trip to the Bay/Ocean this weekend. It took me around 15 minutes to get packed up. I've been trying to help, but I do nothing right, so here's my contribution. -Jamie
How do I tell? I think i'm packing too light but I'm not sure I just know that I tried packing a little harder on my last pipe and it was much easier to smoke till the end where I think I hit a pocket of not/little tobacco but there were times it was hard to smoke. I feel barely get any...
LOL Couldn't help myself with the title. All the good things I'd read about this baccy mixed with the high level of awesomeness in presentation and meditative intense preparation, I couldn't help but pick this up! The pipe guy at my B&M hadn't heard of it, so he ordered 3 tins. He loved it...
Hoping you could explain something to me.
Why would a packing number of
be more expensive for the same product with a packing number of
Just trying to obtain as much knowledge as possible
Hi guys..I've been viewing these forums for months and finally decided to join! I recently ordered a few boxes off of cigarbid and have had no issues except one. I ordered a 20 pack of Puros Indios Viejo robusto's and was dissapointed to see the packing job with them. It seemed they just...
So earlier tonight, I put into practice the advice I was given in my previous thread. I'm glad to say that while I still have not achieved what I believe to be a proper fill of tobacco I at least have made progress towards that.
I took some Continental a store blend from my not so local B&M, I...
I realize it's been a really really long time since my last contest.... :D :D :D
So dangnabit, let's have another!!!!
I'm gonna be in Aruba next week for a weddin' and well, while there, I may be forced to sample some forbidden fruit.
I won't be checking this thread from this moment on. You...
Alright, I don't post a lot (don't want to reveal my ignorance and lack of common sense), but I have to ask if some one has experience with this issue. I just got a cab of the epicure especial and when I opened them the ribbon that was binding the bundle was tied so tight that is pinched and...
Is there a difference?
I packed with flake today and smoked on it for a good 20 minutes and barely used 1/4 of the bowl.
Did I pack too tight?
How many "flakes" should I use to pack? or is that the wrong way to think of it? I used a 50g of University Flake (smoked nice while it was lit)...
So this weekend was a camping weekend, and as usuall I packed up my herfador (15 count). In it was:

1 Sosa Wavell
1 Felipe Gregorio barber pole (the 3 shade) church
2 Gurkha's (Titan, and some...
