well true pipe smokers dont use screens, you need to clean your pipe after every bowl you smoke and must let it cool down and dry at least 5-6 hours before your next bowl.
you can have an endless collection of pipes but you really need 2, one for aromatics and the 2nd for english blends, there are some smokers who use each pipe for specific tobacco that's the best way to go if you are filthy rich..
the items you need to maintain your pipe and the process is shown in this video:
about the tobacco like i said star with captian black's "white blend" it's an aromatic tobacco flavored by chocolate coffie and dates and very light on the nico, you can get it in any grocery store, when you'll feel ready enough you can switch to much more quality tobaccos that offer much more taste and punch like the brends: davidoff, dunhill, peterson, samuel gawith etc...

so true.. i started smoking pipe after i finished my army duty (got the idea from the reserve troops or the veterans), i was 21 years old and everybody mocked me even my family, now at the age of 30 it's much fitting but still i see a few people are lifting eyeborws but bottom line is it's not an age issue it's weather you like it or you dont.
anyway i prefer to smoke it when i'm alone or with other pipe smokers because i dont want to force my smoke on non smokers and besides i'm not smoking pipe in order to be seen or that people will think i'm more intelligent, i smoke because i like it
It's not dip. It's snuff, but in a bag for in the mouth.
It is the least harmful form of tobacco. The instances of mouth cancer from snus are statistically insignificant.
i dont understand what's the difference between dipping loose tobacco and tobacco in tea bags?
