    Since it will get all beat up and dirty, I'm going to suggest a cob or something from Missouri Meerschaum. They are cheap and solid.

    I have a wooden one from them and it would be your best bet.

    Restored estates. You can get very nice Dr.Grabow for under $30. For around $60 you can get a former $100+ pipe.
    Another choice - Rossi. Especially 320 shape. Just google Rossi Rubino 320. It's on the heavy side, so if you are a clencher, get some softy bits.

    I agree with others, cobs are what you need. Here's a site that you might want to consider.

    Hi fart, and welcome. Excuse me, but I can't help but suggest you read the rules. Especially rule 9 about spelling, punctuation, and grammar.

    Welcome to the forum. Where the intel is fresh and plentiful! Any way I would suggest a MM country gentleman or if your looking for something smaller a MM cutty.

    Savinelli has a line of pipes for 67.50. They are very good pipes for the money.

    This is hands down the best sale price you'll likely ever see a good pipe go for, Stanwell Brushed Brown $20 a piece, ya just can't go wrong here.

    Welcome. That Stanwell deal is again a great suggestion - all my Stanwell pipes are solid smokers and I wish I scored them at $20./ea

    Morgan Pipes make a "natural" rough looking line of briar pipes called Bones. They're about $40 and have a great rugged feel and look.

    Middle Fart, this all sounds like a bunch of griping and bitching, especially over something like Grammar, Usage, and Mechanics, but the Owner of this Magazine wants to keep a certain style and pedigree. Kevin would like to keep the "Text Messaging" style of communicating at a bare minimum( at least this is how I understand it) Using periods and capitalization really helps the reader of your post. You can use abbreviations and such, and we all screw up on spelling and the occasional uncapitalized Thread Titles. Just trying to help you out.

    It's not my position nor want to help another man. It's his responsibility to help himself, as where he can learn to dig down deep enough to save himself. -I. Kidd

    I would not recommend getting the Rossi 320 pipe since its a heavy pipe. for clenching you can be sure corncob will be a great choice for all the reasons stated above.

    You should really check out Morgan Bones. They’re probably the best bang for your buck and you don’t have to worry about using them at work.

    I'm an expert in my own opinion

    I love my Dagner poker cob as my work pipe. Light weight for clenching, tall bowl for an ample smoke, and inexpensive.

    If a smoke when I'm working which isn't very often at the moment it's usually a cob. Good smokers and cheap to replace if it getting broken.

    I too am a mechanic. I carry a MM Legend as my work pipe. It's swollen, chewed up and greasy but is a GREAT pipe for work. The Hardwood Ozark Mountain would be another great option.

    I smoke cobs when working outdoors, or in my shop carving.

    I don't know where I'm going...but sooner or later I'll get there.

    Cobs, Missouri Meerschaum, would work fine. Dr. Grabow would also do a good job. I almost hesitate to suggest this, but the only good use for very inexpensive, somewhat overweight pipes made of Brylon, a wood composite, is in rough work situations. Brylon is sort of a joke with pipe fanciers because they burn hot and are not "real wood." However, for this application, you might want to try one. They are indestructible and can be scrubbed off and dropped and remain intact. Minimal investment, so if you don't like it, you can throw it in the dumpster. Several members own them and like them, or don't object to smoking them. If you end up preferring a cob or Dr. Grabow, you might use the Brylon as a car pipe ... or a tack hammer.
