PostSubject: A new brother?   Thu Jan 12, 2012 11:06 pm

Well I will be Smile I am in the process of trying to learn as much about pipes and this hobby as I can right now. I would love to get a pipe right now but I have a problem with just buying the first cool thing I see. I like to be informed. I actually think when it comes down to it I am going to have a hard time making my first pipe purchase. I mean, how does one go about figuring this out? New? used? I know I want a wooden pipe not a corn cob though. straight or curved? Im so torn. And I would really like to smoke herbs not tobacco. Does anyone know anything about herbal smokes? Is there a good book out there on pipe smoking? I'm also all about owning books. I dream of amassing a large quantity of books and putting them in a wooden paneled wall study/library someday sitting in my wingback leather chair smoking my pipe......sounds great. anyways hi to all and I hope this post gets some replies.

I don't know anything about anything... but - there was a thread about smokable herbs and native American smoking blends that I saw just the other day...

Here it is.

http://www.brothersofbriar.com/t15546-herbal-pipe-blends

Reading the links from that thread, it seems much safter to just smoke tobacco to me... but hey... YMMV.

thank you all. Al though as far as I knew this was a forum about pipes and tobacco. Although I may not be interested in tobacco I am very much interested in pipes and would hope that I would still be welcome in this forum for that. As far as I can tell this is a great community here and would like to be a part of it.

May I suggest that you give some thought to a cob? Cheap so you aren't out much if you decide not to pursue pipe smoking. Save your money until you're sure and then buy that cool pipe.

I am reading this same suggestion throughout these threads. I think I will stop by the local smoke shop today and purchase one. Thanks!

Me and my lady got our start on cobs, I like them because they are cheap so you don't have a lot of cash invested if you end up not liking its style or smoking in general.

Welcome. Can't help you on the Herbs.

Search yields a number of book threads:
http://www.brothersofbriar.com/search?mode=searchbox&search_keywords=books&show_results=topics

I have Richard Hackers and Newcombe's books. Ewa's "The Book of Pipes and Tobacco" is an excellent reference as well. I grabbed all those via Amazon, for around $10-$15 delivered.
