I rotate a pipe and cigar, so when I'm not smoking one I'm smoking the other. I find they complement each other. I smoke a blend made with cigar leaves: McClelland's Dominican Glory made with rich maduro cigar leaf and Virginia tobaccos. Great stuff. I use a cheap corn cob with a cheap disposable paper filter inside, but I ordered 2 meershaums and 3 briars on ebay dirt cheap and they'll arrive before the end of the week. Hey, you discuss alcohol and cigars, why not pipes? I am a teetotaler, by the way. Never could stomach booze.

You know I used to smoke a pipe every now and again, but its been years. My dad actually used to be a big pipe smoker and has a huge collection of pipes. I'll have to ask him what he did with them all.

Certainly its an allowed topic. If there's enough interest at some point i'll create a new forum for Pipe smokers.

I persoanlly am not a pipe smoker, although I keep threatening to become one.

I never got into pipes either. Always thought about them, just never bought one.

I'm a pipe smoker. I alternate between cigars, pipe and snuff. I'm using a briar pipe. My favorite blends are exclusiv royal, exclusiv wild mango, thomas radford sunday's fantasy.

I saw once on a forum that you can use cigar to make pipe tobacco. Haven't tried it yet.

I smoke a pipe as well. Never heard of the using a cigars tobacco in a pipe, but it may work. I feel you would lose some of the pazazz by removing the wrapper and the binder...

I may try it with a corn cob pipe and a cheaper cigar to see what happens...

There are several brands of pipe tobacco on the market that use cigar tobacco in their blends, even a couple that use maduro leaves. Ive never tried any of it but it looks interesting. I dont really like any of the aromatic tobaccos, I only smoke English type tobacco. I think you lose the whole tobacco flavor with all the aromatics. I like some of the tinned tobaccos on the market but I find that alot of places have good bulk blends for way less money. I usually smoke one cigar and a couple pipes a day and I chew snuff at work, boy am I addicted to nicotine.

Oh, I have two briar pipes and two corn cobs in my rotation right now, they all smoke different and have different tastes to them.
