PostSubject: New pipe smoker from Palo Alto, CA   Sun Aug 26, 2012 11:40 pm

Hello, BoB! I'm new to smoking pipes, so I'm sure to be bothering you all with lots of questions. I've dappled in cigars, and I smoked cigarettes for a while when I was younger. I've always had a bit of an interest in smoking a pipe, and i finally just went out and got myself started on yet another hobby. I currently have a Fe.Ro briar bent billiard i believe, and a Missouri Meerschaum corncob, with a Nording Freehand Signature on the way with a sizable shipment of tobacco to try out. I've dappled in enough hobbies that I did some research and figured I would need a few pipes and a bunch of different types of tobacco to try out. The Nording was a bit of an impulse, i must say. browsing pipes and i fell in love with it. after a week of looking at it just about daily, I realized it was the only one exactly like it, so of course i had to have it!

so far only have Virginia and English blends, not too interested in the aromatic thing yet. although i could be persuaded with a mildly scented (flavored?) one i bet.

so i apologize in advance for any noob questions, and I promise to do as much searching and research before I bug you all!

here is the Nording I have on the way:

Welcome, and don't apologize for "dumb questions". There are probably a dozen other members that wanted to know the same thing, but didn't have the courage to ask. I do, however, specialize in dumb answers, as do a few other members here, so don't expect brilliance. Also, remember this a very personalized, individual hobby and we all have different views on what works and what doesn't, so their often isn't a single, universally correct answer.

Welcome. I almost bought a similar Nording myself. I like how they look. They are supposed to be a good pipe.
