    I love to smoke my pipe when I'm writing or otherwise working on my keyboard, but I don't really have the best pipe for it.

    I deal pipe would be lightweight, but still of reasonable size and FULLY bent, so that when clenched it hung very straight down along the jaw, so there's no leverage on the teeth. (I'm not typically a clencher.)

    My two most bent pipes are a Peterson 03 and a similarly shaped meer. Both are good smokers, and alright for the purpose, but more bend would better suit.

    What's your "writing" pipe?

    I clench 90% of the time and this is the most comfortable.

    An Oom Paul should suit you very well.

    I use a straight Kaywoodie Fine line, so light weight I dont even notice it. Have a few burns in shirts to prove it.

    I don't have any 'writing pipe' designated per say, but I smoke all day long. If I'm relaxing in my nest
    (that's what June calls my chair and corner of the room it's in) I'll usually smoke a straight billiard,
    a calabash or most recently a clay.
    Doing anything else 'typing, mowing, any work outside, fishing... whatever', I choose a
    bent pipe so it's down out of my line of sight.

    My 1946 Peterson Shamrock. Rests perfect on the jaw the perfect hanger.

    I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

    Hmmm.

    I've never been a fan of the Oom Paul shape, but I can see how this might be the right place for it. Plus many (most?) are sitters, which is handy.

    Peterson 05 and 338 might work as well.

    Man, I thought it would smoke real hot, but it was cool, literally! Was a nice change of pace. Don't
    know if I'll smoke it often, but I've got one in my Cabinet now dang it!
