Has anyone tried a cigar pipe? Thoughts? (this should be interesting)

    Nope, but I've been tempted by meerschaum cigar holders. I once thought it would be a way to share a great cigar (where you'd pass the cigar around and everyone used a holder).

    Also briar cigars which are pipes shaped like a cigar but take pipe tobacco are interesting.

    I think we need to recruit woodworker with a lathe to the forum

    I guess my question is "Why?".

    My Wife will go to an ice cream shop and get a scoop in a cup instead of a cone.

    More like the people who go to an ice cream shoppe and get a hot dog.

    But you can't hold ice cream in your hand - at least you'd be dumb if you did - like you can hold a cigar with your fingers. What's the advantage of sticking a stick in a piece of wood and then holding the wood?

    One use case was already given.

    My other thought was, you can smoke a cigar down to nothing and still hold it comfortably. Maybe even providing insulation from some of the heat? I really don't know what the benefits are, but I'm hear to get opinions from those that have used it.

    And there's this...

    I'm not trying to discourage you @Derek or tell you how to do you, just being me.

    I'm not discouraged. I think my question honestly was the same as yours : why?

    The difference may be I'm a sl*t for accessories and I really want someone to talk me into buying one 😁

    You might want to look for a set of the holders with varying sizes so that you can accommodate more cigar sizes.

    That's called "cigarbage"

    Nice patina on that nubber, @peter4jc!

    It looks like they taper for that reason

    So I don’t know much about wood for pipes but is cocobolo typically used? I have considered using this in woodworking but was discouraged due to it’s known toxicity/respiratory irritant... any one have experience with this ?

  • ShawnOLShawnOL Posts: 8,116 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Cocobolo is beautiful.

    But will it kill you?

  • VegasFrankVegasFrank Posts: 16,437 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Can I put my culebra in it @MrShrek?

    Can I put the femur prerelease in it?

    This is a good reference on wood allergies and toxicity

    I wonder how well it burns past the rim

    Frank, you would waste so much unsmoked cigars if you had one of these instead of a nubber. I've seen you smoke it down to nothing but ash as the final flecks of wrapper burn away.

    We had a member here who used a pipe to nub his cigars down to nothing. He also advocated saving the end cuts & making pipe tobacco from the mixture.

  • YaksterYakster Posts: 25,188 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I've done that but prefer using a nubber.

    I believe that was @pilgrimtex .

    I tried it. Bleah!

    Better to turn that apple around.

    That was fast. What do you think?

  • YaksterYakster Posts: 25,188 ✭✭✭✭✭

    That was a photo example from Instagram to show how ridiculous it is. Compare it to a nubber and just bare hands.
