    Now that I'm considering getting back into pipe smoking I need to find a pipe. The problem is that there aren't any cigar shops anywhere near me that I could go pick up a pipe. Do yall have any suggestions for websites I could buy a new pipe/estate pipe for not too much money? Any brands in particular?

    Welcome to the forums, Adam.
    SmokingPipes.com has a nice selection of new and used pipes.
    I would recommend a pipe smoking starter kit because it will have the basics you need for the pastime.

    Congratulations on your decision!

    I'd go with a ready-to-smoke, restored estate pipe. You get twice the pipe for a lot less coin.

    Dave Neeb has a few "$50 or less" pipes up, here: http://www.mkelaw-pipes.com/html/specials.html

    Mike at Briar Blues has a $65 Willmer "Bing" here: http://briarblues.com/mdp12.htm

    Don Seatter has a large selection of restored estate pipes, starting at $27, here: http://www.jamesislandpiper.com/store.php?seller=JamesIslandPiper&navt1=110812&sort=price&per=5&grid=

    You cal also get a brand new "Tsuge" for about half price ($50-$67.50) here: http://www.smokingpipes.com/pipes/new/tsuge/index.cfm

    If you can't decide, I'd go with a Tsuge -- it's a stellar brand and a pipe you'll never regret owning.

    Good luck and let us know which pipe you choose

    I've just returned to pipe smoking myself & have luckily done very nicely with quality estate pipes from ebay. I won't even consider a purchase from anyone w/ less than 99 - 100% feedback rating. A few online tobacco stores sell nice estate pipes too, I think a few were already mentioned. Happy Smoking!
