Everyone approaches this great hobby of ours from their own angle. Some have a passion for building their pipe collection with briars crafted by the most creative and successful artisans. Others enjoy the craft of finding neglected estate pipes and breathing new life into them on their work bench, or carving new creations themselves. Still others find excitement in scouring online auction sites, flea markets, and antique shops looking for a fantastic deal on a new smoker they will enjoy themselves or put in the hands of another pipe smoker.
For me, it is all about the tobacco. Pipe tobacco is my passion. I love smoking it, I love buying it, I love exploring new blends, I love reading about it, writing about it, and especially comparing notes with other pipe smokers! At the end of the day, we all like pipe tobacco, whether that means the journey in search of the holy grail, desert island smoke, or finding daily comfort in that one blend or two that always satisfies us. This is why I’ve invited you here, from whatever other niche in the world of pipe smoking you find your own passion in – to celebrate the one part of the hobby we each have in common – smoking pipe tobacco.
