A friend of mine on the railroad, after hearing that I was a pipe smoker, told me he wanted to start.
So I made a beginners package for him and will be sending it out today.

Just something to get him started. With a note that included a few starter tips.

Though I no longer smoke my Dr Grabows, they are the pipes I started with, and it hooked me for life. I thought about getting him a corncob too, but I'll just let him figure that one out first. The tamper I made myself, and I think he'll like the excaliburley. I created that blend years ago and everyone loves the smell.

I wish someone had turned me on to the Stokkebye Luxury Navy Flake/Bullseye line much earlier in my piping career. It took me far too long to stumble across them and they were the kind of tobacco I could see immediately hooking a new smoker. Good on you for putting that together for a friend.

Well done!
Bullseye may hook some, but my experience was different. Burlington Arcade, no longer made. English with Latakia and Perique.

Well done! That's how we keep our ranks filled. You got me feeling guilty that I've not done that.

I figured, that someone like him, wasn't just going to go out and look for a pipe. So I forced him into it. Now he has no choice.
