    The League of Pipe Smokers

    Hi folks

    Given the interest expressed in this thread:

    http://www.britishblades.com/forums/...ad.php?t=50745

    I'm very pleased to announce the formation of the League of Pipe Smokers.



    Membership of the League is simple. If you have previously smoked a pipe of tobacco, or would like to do so, then we will be your friends.

    Anyone who posts a silly comment about other illegal uses of pipes will be banned.

    Count me in

    I suggest we commission a special room in the forum with oak paneling and overstuffed leather armchairs.

    Re: The League of Pipe Smokers

    I would very much like to join.

    Can somebody recommend a pipe I'm likely to be able to find and a similar tobacco.

    I do have a pipe shop near me. Named the pipe pub .

    I think it's time to replace my corncob pipe. Reccomend me a good fool-proof starter pipe.
    If you will a good edge win,
    temper thick and then grind thin.

    I'm in!

    I used to smoke pipe, half'n'half mixed with some rhum flavoured tobacco. Lovely, but a bit strong for my lungs. That was about 15 years ago.

    Thinking a lot lately about getting some nice pipes and trying some new tobaccos.

    Still seeking for that lovely smelling tobacco mix, which I could never figure out what it was...

    Re: The League of Pipe Smokers

    For me this will be at least initially a thread about what my father smoked, as that what I have learned from. He's still alive, in case anyone he knows is on here.



    Firstly pipes need to be from Peterson:

    http://www.peterson.ie/retailerdetai...county=Jutland

    Peterson are now in Ireland, but my (English) dad will insist that they were a Danish company. My now deceased pipesmoking Danish grandfather would insist that they were Danish originally.

    In the same way that they would insist that the tobacco brand McBaren was Danish.

    So, lets kick off the League with some controversy!

    Re: The League of Pipe Smokers

    Back to the serious topic in hand. There is a splendid traditional tobacconists not too far from me. Lots of big jars full of wonderous aromas. You can but small "taster bags" of tobacco for 1. I rather like the cherry one smoked in a clay pipe.
