Anyone have an olive wood pipe?   I was curious about these so I ordered one from
Cup O' Joes along with some Peterson Wild Atlantic tobacco.

I do not have any experience with olive wood. Be sure to let us know how it is.

I have one - an RD Powell bent with bakelite stem. Smokes great. Can't say I noticed any difference in taste, but I did break it in slowly since I read somewhere that olive wood is not as dense as briar. Sure is an attractive looking pipe with the olive wood swirly grain.


Cheers,

RR

I too have one of Ron's Olivewood pipes. A nice pot esque job with a twisted shank and a beautiful black and yellow twisted stem. I did not notice any particular flavor when breaking her in but I will warn you the wood does scorch easily. I have a nice black mark on the front of the bowl from trying to light up in the wind.

Thanks for the info guys.  I hope olive wood is not as soft as pear wood.  I have a pear wood pipe that I scorched and it also burned through.  Maybe I should coat the inside of the new olive wood pipe with pipe mud before I use it.

Cool grain on this one.  I hope I can break it in without scorching it.

Oooh, pretty!

I've got many wooden pipes and have yet to burn one out. I break them in like new cobs. If you haven't burnt a cob out you should be fine with olive.

Gorgeous pipe you have there. Never owned one made of Olive wood so am finding the thread interesting.
