“The most beautiful things in life are immoral, or are illegal, or fattening”.
George Bernard Shaw

Oh my God, I think this aphorism is often present in our daily lives, don’t you?
Smoking pipe is one of these things for me.
Smoking is the less healty action we can do, but I think that if done in the right measure, do not make us a great evil: have a look HERE

I want to compliment you for the choice of starting smoking pipe, mostly if you are young. Pipe is not just for old people, you can be young and cool smoking it.

Smoking pipe for me is a beautiful habit, which gives me moments of relaxation and enjoyment.
If you want to start doing it, here are the things that I think are important to know. They are the tips that I had not founded when I started smoking.

And now, let’s start.

What do you need?
– A pipe
– A wooden tamper
– A pipe cleaner
– filters
– tobacco

A PIPE can be easily found online with a simple Google search. Choose one that represents you, trying to feel the feelings that gives you watching it, imagine how you would feel smoking “She”.

The best brands in my opinion are Savinelli, Brebbia, Peterson, Dunhill. I have a Savinelli Pianoforte, but if you want a starting good pipe at a great price, search online for “Mr.Brog”.

Use the WOODEN TAMPER to press gently the tobacco in your pipe. Be careful, otherwise there will be no air and will be difficult to smoke. The first times, you’ll go wrong, like me, then with experience, you will easily succeed.

The PIPE CLEANER, to use to keep clean from moisture and waste of smoking your pipe.

FILTERS to eliminate a good percent of tar. The pipe should be cleaned every time after you use it.

TOBACCO, as you know, is with your pipe, the real protagonist. My advice is to choose it with an aroma more close to your personality: the aroma, often gives people an idea of who you are. There are many brands and types of tobacco to start with. I suggest you Skandinavik Mixture or Amphora Original Blend, but of course, you can try and choose what you want.

I prefer the aromatic tobacco.

That’s all.

Last special tip is about how to keep lit the tobacco: to avoid that it often turns off, the secret is pressing the tobacco after 3 or 4 seconds you started smoking. A light pressure to compact it and after this your pipe will sweetly follow you until about 20 minutes, maybe while chatting with someone or alone with your thoughts.

    My grandfather used to smoke pipe. He had a large pipe collection. I remember it fondly, him sitting there with his pipe as his nightly ritual.

    My dad used to smoke a pipe and I have great memories with the aroma. But I do enjoy a good cigar with my hubby from time to time.
