Pipe Tobacco Reviews

Kyle Weiss
Three weeks before summer, and three more feet of snow fell in the upper elevations of the Sierra Nevada mountains nearby. I’ve never been one to enjoy summer, with perfect bodies glistening on pristine beaches, kids screaming and running about, music clashing from open windows, cars and camps—none of that is me or my scene. Finding quiet and serenity becomes mission one, if not finding respite from the high-altitude desert sun overhead. Pipe smoking changes too, and heavy stuff isn’t my forte in summer.

Peterson Perfect Plug wasn’t what I had planned to reach for this month, but the sudden cool weather also prompted ginger-molasses cookie baking to cut the chill in the house. Plugs being what they are, often require preparation and are also quite strong. Sweatshirts and hoodies came back out and so did the lime green tin housing a little brown brick of tobacco goodness. Which, as it turns out, has been made available to us by Peterson again.

Radio Talk Show

Kevin Godbee
Thank you for joining us for The Pipes Magazine Radio Show—the only radio talk show for pipe smokers and collectors. We broadcast weekly, every Tuesday at 8 pm eastern USA time and are available on nearly all podcast sites and apps. Listen on your computer, tablet, phone and even in the car! Our featured interview tonight is with Claudio Darin, the owner of Estate Pipes Buenos Aires. He is a college professor that became intrigued in pipe smoking when he saw one of his students smoking a pipe. Later, his father gave him his old pipes, and then Claudio became interested in pipe restoration, which lead to him starting his estate pipe business. In Pipe Parts, we will have “Ask the Pipe Maker” with Jeff Gracik. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

Pipe Collecting

James Foster, CST
Father the Flame Logo After 7 years and 6 countries we’re finally seeing a finished product that the pipe community has been anxiously waiting for. We’ve seen snippets and previews at the Chicago show, and you might have run across Chad Terpstra, Jeremy Rush, and team filming throughout the years enough to be excited about this. Personally, when I heard about this project on the Pipesmagazine radio show with Brian Levine I immediately became a community backer and then like you, I’ve sat and waited… and waited. But now as of today, it’s out and available on iTunes and Amazon for purchase. Fair warning, if you aren’t smoking a pipe when you watch this movie, you’ll have this gravitation to find your favorite pipe and light up.

Find the movie on iTunes here.

The Pipe Pundit

Fred Brown

It took me to what one might call my Codger years to really learn, I mean really learn, how to properly smoke a pipe.

In my youth, I was busy chasing my tail like a confused canine.

I was the proverbial smokestack. Fast and furious.

You talk about tongue burn! I had burnout! My tongue resembled a charred rack of barbecue ribs.

A few years back, I had occasion to sit down with the late Craig Tarler of Cornell & Diehl of C&D fame. Now there was a legendary pipe master.

I don’t know why but in talking with Craig, I always felt as though we were on some high mountaintop and there was Craig, offering pipe wisdom while chanting mystical thoughts through mantras.

Plus, Craig was just plain fun, an all-around wonderful person to kill an afternoon with pipes and conversation.

    Where Will Pipes Be in 100 Years?

    Rick Newcombe

    Last May I attended the Chicago Pipe Show, and the first person I saw was an Englishman named Reggie Stevens. Reg lives in Birmingham, England and speaks with the accent of someone who has lived in the north of England his whole life. He sounds a little like Ringo Starr.

    "Reg!" I said, "It's so good to see you!" as I gave him a big bear hug.

    "Well, I'll tell you, mate," he said, "I'm feeling a little better now. My wife of 54 years died in January, and this is the first time I can feel the cloud lifting a little – because of all the love and friendship there is at this pipe show."
