    I'm also from Canada and new. There's a few good pipe stores in Canada, I just got in a new pipe from one.

    I haven't ordered anything from the U.S so far.

    Welcome from Edmonton. I have bought online from 4noggins. I’ve always kept the tobacco under 200g (about 7 ounces). I also usually pick up some other supplies or pipes to justify shipping costs but keep the total order including shipping under $150. I’ve never had to pay duty but from what I’ve heard keeping the amount of tobacco under 200g and keeping the order small is NOT a guarantee that there will be no duty.

    Welcome from Ontario! And yes there is no exemption for the amount of baccy ordered and tax. Order what you want, and pay what you owe. If you aren’t hit then it’s a win. Just depends if the officer wants to do the paperwork. I’ve had no issues with 1lb bags, yet get hit on a single tin. It is what it is...

    I love Peter Stokkebye's Black Coffee. You shouldn't have trouble buying it online. I buy it at a brick and mortar store in Buffalo. I'm Canadian, too. Never been hit for duty on the way home, but I keep the quantities low. I think the limit is supposed to be seven ounces of pipe tobacco and the customs officers never seem too interested.

    Welcome from outside Toronto!

    I've bought small amounts from smokingpipes and never had a problem with duties.

    If you’re really a Canadian, then what shape was your first pipe?
