I recently broke a nicely carved meerschaum. It was an estate pipe and I suspect the nylon joint which broke was already cracked when I bought it. For Christmas, though, my wife bought me a sweet calabash (so I can solve mysteries, of course) and then she suggested I try smoking it in the house (!!) instead of outside at subzero temps. I lit up some Black Cavendish and then we ended up opening up some windows to let a blizzard clear our living room. Wish I had a smoking room...

Hey guys,

I have just started smoking a pipe as a wind down. I only smoke one or two a week and was curious how often you guys smoke a pipe? I know all tobacco has risks but I was curious if any of you who smoke about as often as I do have any adverse health?

I got a Missouri Meerschaum Gen (Emperor) MacAurthur for christmas plus 4 others. It is the first corn cob I have had and it smokes so great may be the best ever!

Oliver,

For sure, happy to help! There are a ton of youtube videos on the subject and I doubt that there is one way that is more correct than the other as most of them are pretty similar. 

Welcome to the club!

The Sage_KS,

 

Thanks for the input; will check into those estate pipes...and good cleaning methods just to be on the safe side.

What experience do my fellow pipe smokers have with Brebbia out of Italy. They look beautiful and the meerschaum lined bowls have intrigued me greatly. Plus it'll be my first major pipe purchase of my new found hobby. Otherwise I like to puff on the requisite Missouri meerschaum we all seem to start on.

Welcome to the group Oliver! If you're looking for a Peterson specifically I have a couple suggestions for you. I would go back to Pipes & Cigars website and look at their selection there or you could also go online and check out etsy.com and search 'Estate pipes.' These will be used pipes and can generally be found at a good cost. That being said I wold suggest you look at the seller and whether or not they have experience in the cleaning of estate pipes or if is just some guy selling his granddad's pipe he just found in a shoebox in the closet. I have ordered an estate pipe from there before and the seller listed in his bio that he does properly clean each pipe he sells and upon inspection of the pipe when it arrived he was telling the truth.  Hope this helps some!

New to pipe smoking and appreciate all of the great feedback in this forum.  I'm limited to online ordering at present but ordered the Pipes & Cigars Corn Cob Sampler.  I'm very interested in finding a Peterson second but don't know where to look.  Would appreciate any pointers in the right direction. Cheers.
