Pipe Smokers' Corner

Recommended Posts

After seeing Hiram's pipe collection the other day, I thought, not for the first time, about the similarities between pipe smoking and Absinthe drinking. Like a properly prepaired glass of Absinthe, the pipe requires careful and ritualistic preparation and yields a complex sensory experience that some "get" and others do not.

 

Typically, I would go to a more widely recognized source for pipe discussion like a pipe smokers' forum but I thought there might be enough of us (pipe smokers) here to chat about it some.

 

Anyway, Hiram would you tell me again about the Oriental/Turkish tobacco vs the cavendish/aromatic. I would like to try something like what I smelled at your place (tobacco that is).

Cigars. Smoked a pipe a little before moving to the cigars.

 

Tried an Avanti last night. Too sweet for me. I wasn't into the whole 'Backwoods' look either :huh:

Shai, the tobaccos in question were Latakia and Perique. One of the best (and oldest) tobacconists in the country is the L.J. Peretti Co. in Boston, founded in 1870. I particularly liked their Royal Blend, the Oriental No. 40, and the English 110.

 

They will also sell the straight, unblended tobaccos, so you can adjust a blend to your liking. That's why I have the Latakia and Perique. I also used to keep the Djubek and Yenidje on hand for the same purpose, but as I mentioned while you were here, good Yenidje and Djubek are really hard to find and anything available (in the US) pales in comparison to the Turkish tobaccos of 30 years ago.

 

What you're after is an "Oriental" or English blend. They tend toward the smoky, savory side rather than the sweet aromatic side, like Cavendish based blends. Aromatics will be the ones that smell like chocolate, vanilla, fruits and so on.

 

 

I started smoking a pipe when I was 16, picking it up from my father. I still have a couple of my pipes from then, including a 1976 Bicentennial. I've smoked them on and off all my life, but just three years ago discovered premium cigars (after the 90's boom). I'll probably move back to pipes again someday.

Cigars are great and popular enough for their own thread perhaps. Hiram thanks for the information. I will have to look into getting some of those you mentioned. I picked up pipe smoking years ago. My father had one on his dresser when I was a child and although I never saw him smoke it, I was impressed that it was a romantic thing from an early age. Many of my heros smoked pipes as well i.e. Tolkien and Lewis. I have always loved the smell of pipe smoke (I wish it tasted like it smells). In pursuit of "tastes like it smells", I have stuck pretty close to the aromatics (fruits, vanilla, whiskey, etc. The milder the better for my tongue.

 

I am really drawn to the experience of pipe smoking, the ritual of it. Selecting a pipe from my collection (a long stemmed churchwarden, a deeply curved Savenelli, a free form Boswell, etc...), selecting tobacco, filling the pipe (not too tight not too loose), lighting, watching the the first curls of aromatic smoke rise from the warm orange glow of the ember.

 

Pipes are great smoked alone but they are even better smoked with a friend. Pipe smoking adds a great deal to conversation. Keeping a pipe lit requires attention, time spent not talking. In a culture where we so often talk more than we listen and spend our only quite time waiting to interrupt whoever is talking, smoking a pipe during conversation requires you to be quiet and draw on the pipe. One has to plan ones comments and spend time listening. There is a rhythm to it that is healthy.

I started smoking a pipe on college,

over the years picked up a small collection of pipes.

Though when I was on the road a lot doing shows they had a tendency to get broke so I started hand rolling my pipe tobacco. Use to smoke a blend called Norse Gold from the Tinderbox.

Still have some of my pipes, a couple of mearsham lined briars, a carved one, and a wood and porcelain tyrolian pipe. They sit on my mantle in my pipe rack with my humidor. :)

I have lots to say on the subject B.C.Bud and 420HG, but will keep it to myself.

 

My high school boyfriend smoked a pipe a lot. He has a really nice meerschaum and a Calabash. Looked good on him, being a tall, lanky, Norwegian. I enjoyed the aroma and we used to frequent the Tinderbox at Southcenter.

 

My ex smoked cigars in the last few years we were together...I couldn't stand them.

I dealry love my period clay tavern pipe. When I went to my first SCA event and they told me to loose the cigs I was terriffied, I had never smoked a pipe before. Subadai gave me an old torn up clay tavern and that's all I've ever smoked on since, even made my own, which is way to hard to do again. I really prefer the cavendish blends to the turkish, now matter how much I get made fun of for it not being period.

Your last paragraph covers how I feel about cigars.

I have heard it said that cigarette smoking is like watching TV, cigar smoking like going to the movies, and pipe smoking like reading a book. I can see it. All of them have their own place but require different levels of effort/investment, have different payoffs, and different levels of sophistication.

I use to buy cigars at Edwards Pipe Shop in Atlanta. There were always 2-3 people sitting in chairs smoking pipes & talking when I went in. The place smelled heavenly. You really didn't want to leave.

Stroller - If you want to give it a try you need very little to start. You need a pipe, some tobacco, a three-in-one tool and some pointers on loading and keeping lit technique.

 

Pipes - you do not have to spend a mint on a pipe especially your first one. Most of the time the super high cost comes from name/artist/designer and collectability. The problem with a $10 to $30 drugstore pipe is that it will probably smoke very hot (the pipe itself will heat up considerably and the tobacco will smoke too hot). The average decent pipe is about $50 look for a good name like Savinelli (I have a model 614 Roma that I love). Shape is mostly to taste (art not tongue) but depends a bit on what you want to do with it. A very straight stem will backwash on you if you are looking up at a bookshelf or something. A heavy pipe requires a free hand to hold it. A flat bottomed pipe will sit upright on a table on its own etc...

 

Tobacco - Again to taste. I recommend going to a tobacconist and finding something that smells good to you. In my experience they usually smell similar when smoked to what they smell like in the jar. They do not taste like they smell however so ask the tobacconist for mild or sharp recommendations.

 

Three-in-one tools are cheap (50cents) and helpful. They have a tamper, an airater, and a scoop for cleaning out the ash and unsmoked "dwaddle."

 

Filling/loading - fill the pipe with tobacco packing it evenly from bottom to top. It should be tight enough to offer moderate resistance to airflow when you pull(drag) on the pipe. Not to tight, it should not be a strain. If you fill it too tightly, use the tool to open an airway.

 

Lighting - using a match, hold the flame just over the filled pipe and draw the flame into the tobacco by pulling slowly (most people do not inhale pipe smoke. I certainly recommend not doing so for health reasons). You are trying to form an ember on top of the tobacco (more than one match may be required). Once a good ember is formed try not to re light, the tobacco gets more and more bitter with each re light.

 

The trick to keeping a pipe lit is in keeping the ember on the yet to be smoked tobacco in your pipe. The pipe tends to form a layer of insulating ash between the ember and the rest of the tobacco so every once and a while, use the tamper to push the ember down on the unsmoked tobacco.

 

*A new pipe needs to be seasoned. When it its smoked, a layer of gunk builds up on the inside of the bowl. You want this stuff, do not scrape it off. Start a new pipe off by only filling it halfway, smoke it, fill it a bit higher, smoke, etc... until a nice layer is built up.

Nifty analogy, ShaiHulud. For the most part I would agree with the cpomparisons, unless you are going for 'long ashes' on a cigar. Then I would equate it to reading "War and Peace" B)

All good advice. Depending on how much you smoke, it can take a few weeks to a month or so to get a good start on seasoning a pipe.

 

There is a Turkish technique for filling a pipe: "The first pinch should be packed lightly, as by a child’s hand. The second pinch, more firmly, as by a woman’s hand. The third pinch should be packed the firmest, as by a man’s hand." But don't over-do it. Packing too tightly will make it hard to keep lit, as there are no air pockets in the tobacco.

 

On cigarettes, I went on about the old Turkish cigarettes when Shai was here, but I can't stress enough: cigarettes are not what they used to be. Cigarettes used to have flavor and smell good 30, 35 years ago. American tobacco sucks! I have had cigarettes that were every bit as flavorful and enjoyable as a good cigar or pipe. It's all in the tobacco. American cigarette tobacco companies are Satan.

I always thought the issue with modern cigs was all the crap the put in to preserve the tobacco.

 

One of those " the cure is worse than the disease".

Preservatives my ass. Flavorings, fragrances and chemicals specifically added to speed the nicotine absorption into the bloodstream. They're just nicotine delivery devices. Not to mention the saltpeter put into the papers to make them burn faster.

Flavorings, fragrances and chemicals specifically added to speed the nicotine absorption into the bloodstream.  They're just nicotine delivery devices. 

Without comment, here is a story from The Los Angeles Times

Philip Morris in Inhaler Deal

A biotech firm plans to use technology invented by the cigarette maker to treat infants and adults with breathing impairments.

 

Top cigarette maker Philip Morris is venturing into pharmaceuticals, joining with a biotechnology firm to develop therapies for respiratory problems of premature infants and adults, the companies said Monday.

 

The licensing deal allows Discovery Laboratories Inc., of Warrenton, Pa., to use inhaler technology invented by Philip Morris to deliver treatments for breathing-impaired newborns and people with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

***

The deal is a breakthrough for Chrysalis Technologies, a Philip Morris division that has sought to commercialize an invention first conceived as a smoke-free nicotine delivery device.

 

Discovery plans to use it to deliver respiratory therapies without the discomfort and injury that can be caused by breathing tubes.

 

"We're pleased that this alliance offers us the opportunity to develop our aerosol generation technology with a new class of pulmonary medicine products," said Jennifer Golisch of Philip Morris USA, a unit of Altria Group Inc.

There you have it. They've missed the whole point of smoking.

 

I guess some people don't care about flavor, they only drink smoke it for the effects.
