My dad was a pipe smoker and had a pipe shop when I was growing up. So I have been around pipes all my life. Mostly been a cigar smoker for the last 30 years but have a couple of pipes and have smoked them on and off. I have always liked the fiddling that comes with pipes and I find them beautiful. For a variety of reasons pipes have caught my focus lately and I stumbled on this forum. I am partial to bent stems and sitters but could scroll through pipe listing of all types.
