I no longer have my first pipe, a Peterson System Pipe (317 I believe). I gave it away to an aspiring pipester.

I have my first pipes, I bought a handful in a single ebay bid. I will post pictures when I get home. I also have the first pipe I ever made, and I still smoke it all the time.

This is the first pipe (and first tin of Blackwoods Flake) I purchased when I decided to take the hobby a bit more seriously a few years ago, before that it was basket briar and cheap cobs purchased in college that are long gone. I still have the pipe. The stem's not as shiny but the briar is still in good shape.

The Dr. Grabow in the top right corner, and I still have it. I occasionally pull it out and smoke it just for the heck of it.

GuitarMyFriend now owns my first pipe. Sentiment was overshadowed by its need to be appreciated and used.

First pipe was an estate Willmer Blaze Grain I purchased in 2000. She was a mess and in retrospect, turned out to also be my first complete refurb. Still have it and smoke it today. It's a great thick walled pot. Here's a pic from about a week ago that got a little HDR treatment before it was originally posted to FB.

just smoked out of it last night. Funny how at the punk rock show, smoking a pipe immediately makes you into the cool old dude.

'Twas my freshman year, Saw Hugh & said 2 myself, MUST have a pipe!! Told my floor in the dorm, much to my surprise a 'dormie' said: "Don't buy anything until after the weekend, when I get back!" He came back w/ 3 choices: Can't remember the other 2, BUT the Billiard was exactly what I was looking 4. "IT'S YOURS!" HE was the Grandson of the Founder of Cellini/ORIGINALS!! Bore his name: ELLIOTT. {IF UR READING THIS, PM ME, THANKS! JOE, now in OREGON} LATER, I FOUND A TWIN on eBay, bought it too. & Others, W/ PRIMO'S NAME ON THEM. It came back to me, 30+ yrs later. Mark Wollf re-stemmed it for me. That was 6 yrs ago! Now, I have Dunhills, Charatans{MY FAVORITES!}, Micoli, GBD, & A "CHUNK" I CALL 'WASHINGTON'S PIPE'& MORE PIPES THAN ANY ONE MAN DESERVES!! THANK YOU FOR CAUSING ME TO GO BACK... Fuelfixer/Joe in Oregon

ahh first pipe, was a MM cherry wood poker. I bought it in april of 2009.. I think I bought some borkum riff cherry to go with it, and try it out, because I just got the urge one day, and I didn't wanna buy some crappy swisher sweets or something....
Finally after a few days of killing my tongue, I decided to ditch the borkum riff and go for some Smokers Pride Vanilla (which wasn't that bad, from what I remember).. I finally made a trip out to a Tinderbox and bought a Czech Bulldog basket pipe for 30$, with a couple of diff blends.. I dont have that pipe anymore, however my first real pipe was a Paronelli 3/4 bent shape 557. I liked the colors, theme and finish, actually I have a straight billiard of the same series.. They are okay smokers....

Alpha Beta Billiard, bought in '02 around my 18th birthday. Stem tennon was replaced during the first year I had it, my now brother in law stepped on it by accident during a drinking session at the river, but you live and you learn.

My first pipe was a "The Pipe" in a green color and the shape was a straight saddle bit bulldog. I got it 43 years ago when I was 23 years old, and it was a gift from my new bride. The Pipe was a pipe made out of composite "space age" materials that could be cleaned by running it through the dishwasher, which is something I never did. I don't have the pipe any longer and it was not a great smoker, but I was just starting out on my journey into pipes and thought the thing just looked cool in that neat green color. I no longer have the pipe, but I still have the bride. Laughing

I selected the very finest....
Medico on the card at the drug store.

It might have been a #2 bowl -- bit undersize. Apple shape. Redish brown.
Got a pouch of Edgworth for it. Seemed the nicest, color wise.

Now to make it work.
Well, cigarettes seemed firm so I crammed it full and pushed down hard.

For some reason it bit my tongue.

Several years later I tried again with some 3-Star Blue.
Same packing technique.
Same results.

Friend opened a pipe shop
Got religion, some nice pipes, and packing instructions.
Smoked the Medico a few times and didn't care for it.
Drug store wouldn't take it back. 10 or so years?

It probably is in a box in the shed. Not going to bother to look for it.

Like an earlier fellow stated, my first pipe wasn't just one. I had purchased about 24 or more pipes at an estate sale. Sadly most of them were sold years ago but, I did manage to keep a handful. Here's one of those, an Alpha Lazano Heather Briar. Not a great pipe but, it was a good smoker for what I smoked in it at the time. I haven't smoked it since, too many choices nowadays.

I think I had a Dr. Grabow at 19 or 20 years old, smoked it for a while, gave it away I think, then didn't smoke much until the past few months (I'm 29 now)...so that one is long gone. After picking it back up, I sent another Grabow onto a newbie whose pipe suffered a deadly fall. So I no longer have either of my "first pipes."

I still own and can find 4 or 5 of the pipes I had when I was in college (late 70's). I even have a picture or two of me with a pipe in my mouth back then. I still smoke these early ones, but perhaps I did not bond aqdequately with my first. It would have been a basket pipe of some description, and as I continued smoking, I tended to prefer larger pipes/bowls. I probably gave the first one to somone who admired it and wanted one like it. I have also "lost" a couple of really good pipes. I try to be philosophical. If some other smoker got some (guilty) pleasure out of my pipe, I don't bear much of a grudge. It gave me an excuse to buy another.

Then there are the mysteries I would like to resolve. I had a rusticated Amphora bent bulldog that I loved, and it just disappeared. If that one came home, I would be happy to see it again. I have thought about just finding another on ebay. I had a Canadian that was a great smoker, and I put it someplace "safe" when the stem broke. I claim this one will turn up some day, but I fear it was in a box we thought was empty after a move...

My first pipe was a Comoy Golden Grain Canadian bought in 1961 from Kirt's Pipe Shop in Coral Gables, Florida, while attending the University of Miami.

Still with me and still my best smoker.

Boy was that a while ago.
