"A pipe gives a wise man time to think
and a fool something to stick in his mouth."
- C.S. Lewis.
Packing the tobacco correctly is as
Important as the
Proper breaking in of the pipe.
Smokes differently, and a good smoker can
Make one last up to 45 minutes.
One must tap the dottle from the bowl,
Know how to ream the pipe, and
Embrace the subtleties of the experience --
Rather like shooting or fly fishing or drinking
