Hello men, I am looking to begin pipe smoking but do not know where to start. Perhaps some of you could point me in the right direction. I want to buy a pipe and some tobacco to take with me to afghanistan, as it seems like a good thing to draw my interest.. Anyway, I was looking at buying a simple corncob pibe, perhaps from Missouri Meerschaum. Any suggestions on pipe or pipe tobacco to begin with?
get a couple of corncobs. Missouri meerschaum is very good. Cobs don't require a break in period. They are cheap so if you drop one it won't matter much. You can have a number of them each one for different tobaccos so that you don't have residues from other tobaccos in the pipe.
