    Brazilian guy, very new into pipes but with tons of experiences with cigarettes (6 years smoking all types, now I don't smoke anymore) and a little experience with cigars (I like it a lot but it's too expensive for me... each good or great cigar like a Cuban or even a good national one costs a fortune).

    Smoking pipe is easing my mind here with this horrible political crisis in my country but let's not get into that.

    I hope to enjoy you guys' company and vice-versa!

    Welcome. One of the better and newer pipe carvers is from your homeland - Gustavo Cunha, who sells his pipes under the marTelo brand. He’s not on this forum but you can find him on Instagram.

    Gustavo makes a mean pipe! I am lucky to have one, and I think I'll go smoke it right now.

    Welcome, again, Machado.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Thanks for the greetings everyone!

    @folanator, indeed I hope it is... The pipes are helping me. Is there an off-topic section where I can talk about world matters / politics?

    One thing, why isn't my avatar being shown? Does anyone know? Is it a bug?

    Finally got it, thanks to advice by Cosmic in another sub-forum to another member!

    It's the same profile picture I use on Facebook.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Is there an off-topic section where I can talk about world matters / politics?

    We do have a General Discussion thread, but politics threads generally don't end well. They typically get shutdown when things get a little heated. I try not to get into politics issues as everyone probably has to endure enough of it in day-to-day life and really would rather come here to talk about pipes, tobacco, smoking, sports, you know, things that we want to talk about that make us smile and happy. I mean, I get into enough political debates with friends that I don't want to get into it here. I much prefer talking about fishing, hunting, football or wood working......speaking of which, I need to start my new design for a pipe rack I want for my office...maybe I'll get right on that.

    Bem vinda! A política no Brasil é louca, mas está acontecendo em todo o mundo. Olhe para a América. Espero que o louco Bolsonaro seja derrotado! Anyhow, it is nice to have an international presence here. Yes, politics is frowned upon in the forum but I sympathize with your situation in Brazil. Strange times indeed. I hope enjoying a nice pipe will bring some comfort during trying times.

    @seldom, very hard to live with that situation, even with the pipes... I hope that my new Savinelli that's probably coming tomorrow gives me a boost!

    Gotta look for some new tobaccos though. Captain Black isn't satisfying me.

    Welcome to Forums Sir, I have always been under the impression Cigars ,especially those made in Brazil and Honduras would fairly affordably priced in Brazil similarly to tobacco products such as standard cigarettes and pipe tobaccoes.

    @paul, medium-quality cigars here are relatively cheap, be them national or from caribbean region.

    The problem is that the greatest cigars (Dannemann, which is the best) costs around R$30 - R$60.

    In dollars, that would be $7.5 - $15.

    For my budget it's a habit I can't afford. I'd rather buy a basic Savinelli and smoke some nice basic tobaccos.

    Hmm, had never heard of Dannemann cigars. Shall have to keep an eye out for them.

    Yes, cigars are an expensive hobby. Even here. See for yourself: Some prices for cigars in Canada

    @olkofri The "Romeo Y Julieta Mille Fleurs" is around 33% more expensive than here for example.

    Maybe because there's a culture of tobacco here in Brazil.

    Not talking about pipes, but here the cigars are a tradition. Dannemann is the most traditional brand. You should try.

    Olk- Dannemann has been around for a very long time. Maybe more popular in Europe than here, though.
