    I got this today.

    And, a Sav poker that isn't lised anymore last week.
    What type of tobacco should I dedicate the Canadian to? The Poker gets the rest. I tried searching the answer because I might have asked the same question a couple of weeks ago, couldn't find it, no horse shoe, Sorry & thanks!

    Dedicate it to whatever you like. I use mine for english blends, but that is most of what I smoke.

    As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

    What isn't covered by your current rotation?

    People say that certain blends smoke better in certain pipes but that is irrelevant if you don't like the tobacco in question.

    I have a Pete 264, from the 70's, mine's sandblasted though, not rusticated, with a hallmarked silver band.

    It's the same size as yours (Group 4) and basically smokes everything well. I smoke VA's and burleys in it mostly, and some light English/Balkans on occasion. No aromatics, and I never smoke Lakelands.

    Put your favorite in it mate and puff away.

    If at first you don't succeed, have another bowl.

    See what the pipe wants to smoke. Some pipes seem to highlight the sweet notes in Va forward blends, but will taste acrid or slightly bitter with Latakia and/or Orientals in the mix. Others still will make the rich, nutty notes in Burleys sing, yet you lose the subtle nuances of a VaPer. Of course, others still will bring out the best in the complex VaPers and multifaceted nuances of Orientals, or round out the brash and overpowering Latakia. Play around a bit, I'm a firm believer in not dedicating pipes to a specific blend, but rather a genre they compliment...and it's always fun trying to find that sweet-spot.

    Nice Pete 264 Instymp I'm enjoying mine and I'll bet you will love yours.

    Well said schmitzbitz. That's what I like to do; try different blends until the pipe itself determines what works best.

    Very nice pipe. I'm sure that whatever you choose to smoke in it will do well.

    Blowin' smoke since 1970.

    Very nice looking pipe, congrats on your purchase. It looks like it would be a very nice flake pipe if you are into those.
