    Something like this? This shape has always seemed effeminate to me, though I have a short apple churchwarden (and a fine smoker it is).

    http://www.briarpatch.biz/cart/Details.cfm?ProdID=38164&category=2

    I wouldn't spend that kind of money on that pipe myself, by the way...not saying it isn't worth it, just that I stopped collecting some time ago and now just smoke. Makes things simpler for me.

    I think that would be a contender, especially as you consider it effeminate. I do like Churchwardens, and I think I might be leaning towards a small one. I will be using this pipe when I'm in public, so would like it fashionable (funny, I never cared about that before smoking a pipe!). At home, it doesn't matter and I enjoy a straight Lovat, then Billard.

    Thank you gents for your warm welcome, and the surprising immediate assistance!

    I think I may be a piper now...

    I think too many of us are old, bored, and spend too much time reading and writing on this forum. I'm pretty new here myself and seem to fit in disturbingly too well.

    Nevertheless, glad you found that shape attractive, I'll try and keep my eye out for others I think might suit a lady piper in public.

    Tiny, I meant to ask earlier (and I'm sure others will be curious) what tobaccos or particular types do you smoke?

    @Tiny-also take a look over at SP.com and the Sav line of CWs, perhaps
    a Ginger's fav or if not in CWs maybe the Carmella line as well...or
    Pisa, graceful lines/elegant in design

    Stanwell also makes fantastic smokers and their featherweight
    line are perhaps also something to consider when out on the
    town

    Maybe a floral-designed Meer would be cool to have in the
    rotation as well...

    Now Anne Julie makes outstanding designs, and she bases them
    off her love of flowers, but they are tough to find these days
    http://www.annejulie.com/pipes.html

    Btw; great bacci line up as well

    There are at least three women pipe smokers at the NY Pipe club (I'm sure there are more, but I'm a new member) who either come alone, with friends or significant others. They are welcomed as any other and the ladies I've talked with are extrememly knowledgable about pipes, tobaccos, and their care. Last night at IPSD celebration at DeLaConcha in NYC, a husband and wife team came who are married for 49 years and do everything together, including pipe smoking. A wonderful thing to see.

    Stereotypes are what they are-they need to be busted.

    Tiny, very nice taste in tobacco. Many of us like the same thing. I guess I better start saying "thanks ladies and fellas." Nice to have you here.

    My apologies for temporarily hijacking the thread:

    "Pipe smoking demands some skill learning, and is definitely a contemplative art. Cigars are near instant gratification..."

    Begging your pardon, but you must be talking about those cheap machine-made stogies that are inhaled like cigarettes. Fine hand-made cigars are sipped and tasted much like pipe smoke. In fact, cigar and pipe smokers have a lot in common. Instant gratification is provided by cigarettes and cheap sex.

    Having gotten that off my chest, welcome all you femme puffers!

    We have several ladies at the Seattle pipe club, all very nice all knowledgeable. It's my understanding that pipe smoking is experiencing a bit of a resurgence among men. I wonder if women are too.

    Ditto, Yahan! I think the cigar/pipe malel sterotype came from the US Industrial age, as there has long been female smokes, and there were many pipes made for women in the Victorian age.

    The 50's had a resurgance and there were pipes marketed for women, and I do believe that is about to ramp up again thank goodness! I have met, and guided quite a few new cigar smokers, young men in their early 20's, and a couple are starting the pipe also along with me.

    I started with an initial intent to smoke my fine cigar nubs! Too expensive and good to waste However, my pipe met baccy first, and hence has seen few nubs and only when I ran out of my first baccy sampling!

    I'm smoking 1792 now, and thank you for the compliment. I find old threads regarding baccy for women very funny: "aros" (yee gawd) and "something light."

    Thanks for the fine recs on the pipes - think there is a few more candidates. I do like the Meers, and there are quite a few that stike my feminine sensiblity. The Altinok Maria is presently in the lead (on Puff; I'm TTecheTTe on it and SmokersForum). I have learned that men and women have very different veiws on how they perceive "feminine;" hence, I do want at least one pipe that is selected by males.

    "Feminine" is totally subjective. If a woman likes it, it's feminine - at least for her!

    Ditto, Jud! That's why I'm selecting a pipe from the male perspective to smoke in public.

    Although more feminine pipes would be welcome at home, I don't much care provided it is a good, cool smoker. Don't have a prob in that regard as there are many fine seletions. I would love to have a big bowled "manly" pipe (perhaps a giant Bulldog) right now! Keeping a smoke of 1792 going in my "feminine" little MM Apple is driving me nuts!

    Welcome to the site tiny. I think it is great you are into pipes. Your choice of tobacco is exceptional, some real classic blends you are smoking. Here are a few pipes that I think you might like. All of these are estate pieces that are in pristine condition and in my opinion very good deals. I am not sure of your price range but if you give me an idea I can give you even more choices. I love shopping with other peoples money, as well as my own. These pipes are all in the group 4-5 range which in my opinion would be a good size for you plus they will all smoke flakes very well.

    @thesmokindragron I do like the Savanelli, esp the CWs, Pisa being a fave! Rusticated, I do do love them; very interesting suggestion as I always thought they were masculine! I do like that Ginger, and am now considering for my night time smoker upon yor rec. The Tortuga struck my fancy, as well as the Bing's.

    I also found a beautiful freehand that looks like a rose, and is more beautiful than some roses I have found. $500 is out of my price point, but favorited it for when I'm ready to treat myself. It reminds me of Anne Julies beautiful pipes you rec'd, and is much more affordable: http://www.smokingpipes.com/pipes/new/savinelli/moreinfo.cfm?product_id=100523

    The Pipe Shoppe has H.I.S. italian made mini churchwardens at a decent price. Long stem, slightly smaller bowl. My girl like to steal mine when I'm smoking my other pipes, she says it's cause it's the most girly of them(I'm going to assume she means the curves and gracefully sweeping stem). Of course she only smokes a pipe once in a while at my house...so there is that. Though H.I.S. is one of those really decent pipe for the cost brands. I have two of theirs and they are both excellent smokers.

    @flmason, thank you, and yes I found that true from the start as my first post was just to raise my hand to say "here's another lady piper!" Again, thank you all for a most gracious welcome!

    @lifon2 That KW Lady is definitely a "ladies pipe!" It is a "hers," and not will not be confused with "his." Fits my desired goal of a pipe that a man (most) wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole! It is much prettier than those I've found with Swaroski crystal bands, and gave me the idea to add them to my pipes!

    @cigrmaster Second surprising rusticated suggestion! That Mastro is striking - what a beautiful pipe. I love the very unusal color, its beautiful grain and beveled bowl (which is similar to an Imp that I'm looking at). Will give me a bigger bowl for my 1792 and SL; think it would be perfect for that dedication.

    @joshwolftree Would you like to pick one for me? At that price, maybe two!

    Well I have style B and it smokes well, that's the first one she grabs for when she wants a pipe, granted mine is ghosted with CAO Eilleen's dream, and the top is scorched and mishapen do to less than careful use of a bic lighter (I have three pipe zippos on the coffee table with the pipes, and she uses the newport bic) I'm thinking maybe for her birthday I'll pick her up a style C it has kind of a classic Victorian era ladies pipe feel.

    Yes I did! I was very tempted, but decided I couldn't go wrong at $8.50 for my first try. Still, the 15 is the most beautiful I've seen and the price is reasonable - cheap compared to other clays I've seen.

    I just checked this out. I'd snap it up in a second if I hadn't recently bought a Boswell. I am in the market for a "redish" pipe. I love that Savi though... mmuusssstttt..... rrreeee.....ssssiiiiitttttt......

    A friend and I were able to meet up today for a lovely lunch between our doctor's appointments and I was gifted a fine little (Royal Denmark ?) Egg (I think that may be the correct shape; it looks like a tiny Calabash but w/o the flare, and the stem is higher and more bent than a bent billard...) and it is a fine little smoker!  The size is very deceptive, as it is smaller than my little MM Diplomat Apple, yet the bowl holds twice as much baccy.  Makes for a very relaxing evening smoke!

    I may dedicate this for the car, as it was great to smoke while driving and I could easily blind load the bowl at a light.

    Tiny, that information is USELESS without a photo of that pipe An Egg pipe will actually make you think of an egg, but an egg and billiard and apple are sometimes confused among the more unique styles of pipes. Being shaped like a "calabash without the flare" makes me think Dublin, but I suspect that's just my mind's eye going off on a lark.

    Glad to hear you have a nice addition, though, and even more glad that it's a fine smoker.

    Thanks, Jud! Good to see you here, also! I was just reading about a drooping/drop Billard, and had come to that conclusion as it was identical to to Bent Billard, but the bend was longer and more severe which did give the look of Bent Eggs I have seen. This was a fine gift from Earl.

    I just noticed all of the references to PA in a "tin," which just peeves me a little! Prince Albert was never in a tin! "Prince Albert in the can," in two sizes, is the only way he came (and will forever more, dispite the pouches and replacing the "can" with a "tub").

    @joshwolftree My Marbled Elizabethan reproduction clay pipe arrived yesterday. It is incredible! I find it very feminine, and the stem stays perfectly cool even through repeat bowls. I have dedicated it to Tambolaka, a fitting choice for that precious vile weed!

    And, look at the ample information which Penn Valley sent with it! I especially love the story of their small, family business in the Appalatias.

    I've only seen a few women, including me, who post regularly on this site in particular. I love everything about our wonderful hobby but what I love the most is the community. Everyone is so nice and accepting and helpful, it's great.

    Thanks, everyone! I am very much enjoying everything about the pipe, and fear that I may be a cigar smoker only on occasion, now!

    The little Marbled Elizabethan was only $8.50 - permitting me to finally trust a clay pipe in my clumsy paws (every one I saw previously was $60-$100). I was concerned about the tiny amount of baccy that an Elizabethan (when tabacco was rare and expensive) pipe held and the quality of smoke I would get, but found it perfect for the Tambo. That was the first marbled clay pipe I have ever seen, also.

    The MM Cob was my first, and the Royal Demuth Bent Billard was a gift from a friend this week. I am also happy to be able to post pics, now! (Take that, Apple, Inc!)

    Welcome Tiny. How was your experience with Penn valley pipes? I have been meaning to order from them for a while. Have you looked at their "mini church warden"?

    Me and my son have ordered from Penn Valley and we also had good experiences. I picked up one of the Civil War style Pamplin bowls and a reed stem. It's one of my favorite clay smokers, but admittedly it's not very classy looking. Clays have permanent place in my rotation.

    Since you have to die anyway, you might as well die from something you like.

    No, but I've been trying to figure her out. It's before my time, but she looks familiar.

    The hint helped! She wasn't before my time, afterall. The pic looked early 50's, but was late 60's when I started watching the nightly news.

    Here's a quote from her NY Times obit, rather apropos for this thread:
    "In a debate over equal rights for women, she once recalled, a male legislator said: "I just don't like this amendment. I've always thought of women as kissable, cuddly and smelling good." Her reply was classic Fenwick: "That's the way I feel about men, too. I only hope for your sake that you haven't been disappointed as often as I have.""

    tiny - did you say where you got that small clay? I'm sorry if you already did and I missed it. I am trying to "softly" introduce my fiancee to pipe smoking.

    I think so, but it's Penn Valley. The story of this small family biz is most interesting: http://www.pipeshoppe.com/aboutus.php

    My Grandmother smoked a pipe. She smoked a straight corncob with Sir Walter Raleigh tobacco. I also know of a woman at my job who smokes pipes as well.
