I've always liked the idea of smoking a pipe. and even entertained the thought. One of my friends was smoking his pipe when I was at his house a while back. And I liked the smell of the tobacco. So I went out the other day and bought a pipe and a bag of Captain Black pipe tobacco.
The pipe was a $10 pipe at my local smoke shop. The box says HaoJue and on the side it says HG-685. I dont know what that means but there you go.
I make this thread in hopes that the pipe smokers with experience on the board can offer some tips for pipe smoking and pipe care.
For example I'm having trouble keeping my pipe lit.
And, do all pipes require a filter even though the guy at the smoke shop says mine doesn't.
Feel free to pass along your wisdom to me. Also feel free to recommend good pipes and tobacco blends to me.
