Are there any pipe smokers here?

Here I am on a beautiful fall afternoon smoking my Oom Paul pipe by Boswell.  The beard and hair were last trimmed in June 2012...  Don't plan to quit growing anytime soon!!

Nice Boswell. I have a couple of them. I like a good pipe just like the rest of you. I like the Virginias. Boswell makes a great Cherry Smash tobacco. My favorite pipe is my long lap pipe that has an inscription from 1853.

I find I like the chubby pot poker type. Moretti pipes are just too expensive to buy without knowing if smoking will truly become a part of my life. Any ideas on other pipe artists that make similar good smoking pipes? Also I'm a fan of aromatic sweet smoke, any suggestions?

Hi great to see there are some beardies that smoke pipes too. Heres my pipe collection. Image

From the top, Petersons silver band, Dr Plumb, Hand carved Meerschaum Lion Head, two 18-19 century clay pipes. The 7.5 clay smokes really well.

I smoke a quality Cuban cigar every now and then, but not on a regular basis. The last time I smoked one was in 2010.

A fine Cuban cigar is very nice. One of my favorite is Monte Cristo. I haven't smoked myself for awhile though, I will be getting some fine pipe tobacco soon. I smoke my pipes for a period of time each year like a month of more, what ever takes my fancy. Then stop,I do not have a addictive personality.

Monte christo are my favorites as well, though the last cigar I smoked was a Cohiba cigar (the ones Fedel Castro was so fond of) and it wasn't half bad, they aren't as mild as your typical montechristo cigar.

Pipe smoker here! While I have a few Petes and a Sav, etc, the bulk of my pipes are classic OTC American estate pipes that I've refinished. My tobaccos likewise are usually OTC. Favorites: Dr. Grabow, Kaywoodie, Willard, Middleton's Walnut and Middleton's Cherry Blend tobacco. That's a Grabow Free Hand in the pic. Seeing as it's an indoor pic, it's probably Cherry Blend, or SWRA in the bowl.

Used to have a Petersen Sherlock Holmes and a few Savinelli, but now I like corn cob pipe from Missouri.
I generally smoke Kentucky Bird tobacco.
Not an everyday smoker anyway, just when I'm in the mood.
Valete!

Does a hookah count? Image LOL I mean, it has a pipe/hose. :P

You guys look great with your beards and pipes!
"Your beard is as epic as you believe it is.  Your dedication to your beard is what counts, and whether it is the most lengthy of wizard beards, or the most wispy of Old-Chinese-Guy beards, a beard is a beard and you should be equally proud of it.  To shave is like announcing your conformist ways to society.  It's like telling God, 'Hey, you made a mistake.  I fixed it for you.'  Unless you want to piss off God, you don't say that." -Anonymous Internet User

Was at a pipe show this weekend, picked up this RC Sands.. I have a few of his, he often makes some neat stuff at good prices. He called this one "Big Gnarly Boy"

Here's a Peterson silver-banded bent (among my many Petersons, Savinellis, and others) that I alternate with my humidor of cigars:

I smoke a pipe. Mostly in winter. Cigars the rest of the year. No action pics, though.
Currently trying to break the trimming habit.

Years ago I used to manage a tobacco store, so I have a few pipes.
This one is my favorite.
It's a Erik Nording, a Danish pipe maker
