New Here


Well-known member
Hi folks, just signed up. New pipe smoker here. Smoked a pipe briefly ages ago, but never really got into it. Recently got a few pipes and am trying out a bunch of different blends to figure out what I like. I'm at the bottom of the learning curve right now, so please forgive any stupid questions.

So far my favorite blend is C&D Haunted Bookshop. Love Old Joe Krantz as well, and their Pirate Kake blew me away. Based on what it smelled like in the tin, I didn't think I'd be able to amoke it, but that stuff is wonderful.

Hello Lazarusaurus and welcome to PSD from northern California.
The learning curve is steep but remember to have fun!

There’s a ton of information in the various threads here but feel free to ask “newb” questions in the “Ask an Old Fart” subforum. Enjoy.
