Complete newbie

So I’m thinking of dabbling in pipe smoking, but my wife hates the idea. Her father smoked a pipe and she hated the smell. Can you guys suggest a style of pipe for a beginner and perhaps a tobacco that would suit a beginner?

Long days and pleasant nights,

Roland

    Definitely need to find out what her Dad's tobacco was.

    Silvermouse's suggestion about the corn cob is a good one. They smoke well, and are cheap, so if you don't like it you're not out big $ for something you won't use. If you decide you do like it, there are many many options from $40 up to $1700 and more.

    Really good pipes can be had from $90 to $200. And, unlike a $200 box of cigars, 10 years from now you'll still be loading that pipe up for about a dollar or so, depending on your tastes.

    I remember the name Cavendish on his ziplock bags.

    @Rolanddeschain I see P&C has bulk blends on sale which would be a great place to start. Pick up a few different variety’s and see what you like. Also I would start with a few different cobs because they are cheap and if there is any “ghosting” from the tobacco it won’t ruin future experiences.

    If you want to bomb me send it to Tony @0patience :D
    If you are a newbie I got Dem nachos....

    I'd recommend TobaccoPipes or SmokingPipes over the Pipes & Cigars site.

    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.
