I rode to a B&M I don't usually go to, and for some reason, was in the mood for a cigar, so I bought a few and smoked one there. I always carry a pipe with me, so when the cigar got short, I wondered what I could do, it was a nice $11 cigar, so I thought why toss a fifth of it away. This is what I did.




I say genius. Anyone say heresy?

I'd heard of doing this before, so I tried it once. Wierd.

Cigar holders were very popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Most looked more like short pipes with sharply canted bowls than anything else. (And nothing like the Tiparillo-on-steroids widgets widely available today.)

Had the idea originated with you, I would have labeled it genius. However, I would still have to label it semi-genius!!! If you knew nothing about such being done heretofore, you could then argue that you were at the very least deserving of the company of genius!!! Very Happy Very Happy

Well, I had no idea this was somewhat common, done before or had special pipes made for it. I thought I was being quite creative, though I guess it could still be called original somewhat

That's right! And, since you did not have prior knowledge concerning such, I would then call you a genius!!! Wink

There was many of times in the 80's when cigars was the thing and pipe tobacco was out that I'd take my favorite cigar, a Don Diego corona, and cut it in about 3/4 inch plugs and stuff it in a pipe for a smoke. Truth is I liked it and I'd do it again today if the dang things weren't so expesnive. I can buy a full tin for what one good cigar cost today.

It's a very thrifty practice, so I like it! It would have done our great depression forefathers proud to see such a complete use of the beast.

I shred up some of my "lesser quality" cigars and blend them into my pipe tobacco. I have a jar of leftover GLP Robusto / McClelland Dominican Glory Maduro blended together with my cigar shreddings. Tasty stuff indeed. Very Happy
