a word of advice: be carful it's a very addictive hobby, not only the great selection of flavors to explore but the activity itself it becomes almost like a ritual, if you want any help to get started send me pm i'll be glad to help

This is the one I am thinking about getting. It is $50.00 but I like it. Reminds me of Gandalf's pipe.

i think gandalf used this pipe to smoke weed and there is a good reason for that, the longest the pipe the easiest it is to smoke because you get a cooler dried smoke which do not cause tounge bite.
anyway this specific pipe is a beautiful churchwarden and well worths the cash, tobacco wise i recommend that you start with captain black's "white blend" the ultimate aromatic tobacco for beginners full of taste and body and very light on the nicotine but dont try to inhale, pipe tobacco is not designated to our lungs.
also i must tell you that there are 3 diffrent type of pipe smokers: the aromatic smokers, the english blend smokers and those who smoke both.
aromatic tobaccos are flavored like chocolate, coffie, cherry etc' and are much more likly cause a tounge bite because of the contents and the fact they are much moist, the english blends are'nt flavored and are much drier but are kind of harsh to smoke most of them contain "latakia" tobacco which is originally a syrian tobacco with a very smoked flavor almost like barbecue that is not everyone's cup of tea.
there are also in between blends there you get both of the two worlds.
i personally smoke them both and very fond of in between blends..

here is a link for a tutorial of how to start packing the pipe and smoking, i even found one with the "white blend":

there are many more methods and tobacco forms which require diffrent packing like the flake tobacco's but you'll learn about them with time.

happy smoking

The chocolate and cherry ones are the type that I think I would like. I tend to like sweet or very sour things so i think the flavored would be best for me. Where can I get tobacco like that?

Thank you for the info.

What items do I need to maintain a pipe? Do I need more than one? I seen there is something called tobacco pipe screens.
