Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 566! Our featured interview tonight is with Christian Probst. Christian is the Pipes & Tobacco Category Manager for Cigar World in Düsseldorf, Germany. He initially became interested in smoking a pipe from his friends back in 1996. His father and other family members also smoked pipes, and then he was lucky enough to turn pipes and tobaccos into a job in 2004. In Pipe Parts, we will have an Ask the Tobacco Blender segment with Jeremy Reeves. Jeremy is the Head Blender at Cornell & Diehl, which is one of the most popular boutique pipe tobacco companies in the USA.

  • Jeremy’s update was both informative and sweet.
    Christian’s pipe backstory was quite fascinating, nicely detailed, and well presented. I also enjoyed his behind-the-scenes look at European pipe and tobacco sales and distribution. A delightful conversation.
    Adam’s choice of “Barroom Hero” by Dropkick Murphys would have been fun if we were all liquored-up at a St. Patty’s Day celebration at our local pub. Not to disparage its energy, but Celtic Punk is not my pint of beer.
    Grapes. I won’t argue. But, there are too many kinds of fruit that are equally great. As Mel Brooks would say, “Eat a nectarine.”
    Thanks for another fun show.

    Christian just being a whippersnapper still had a very interesting story to tell and he told it well. He seems like a very pleasant person, and I do hope you get to see him and share a bowl. Interesting story of him growing up with people who were smokers, and it was most interesting.
    You can imagine how vile I thought the “Barroom Hero” was. Add any expletive you want.
    Grapes, huh?? I can’t refute any argument that you made for them and to be truthful they are quite enjoyable. I prefer bananas myself. You remove the packing before eating and dispose of it then. Grapes you do the reverse. There are any number of fruits I could have mentioned. Fruits are greatest sweet in the world,
