How to Choose a Tobacco Pipe

Publish Date 2015-06-21
If you have decided to start smoking a pipe, you will be one of millions of pipe smokers. Notable pipe smokers include Mark Twain, Gerald Ford, and Neil Armstrong. With a wide variety in styles, finishes and shapes, there is certainly a pipe out there perfect for you. Here are a few steps to take when attempting to choose a pipe.
Decide of what material your pipe should be made. While some pipes are clay, most tobacco pipes are generally briar root, meerschaum, or corn cob. Corn cob pipes have a relatively short life span but are usually cheaper than meerschaum or briar, and thus good starter pipes. Meerschaum is a soft, white stone, and pipes made from meerschaum are generally carved in specific designs, making each pipe a unique collector's item. Briar wood is most commonly used to make pipes, and is very strong while being light and extremely heat resistant. There are other, more unique pipe materials, such as the calabash, which is a pipe made from a large bent gourd (think Sherlock Holmes' pipe). These are often large and cumbersome and more collector's fodder than a functional pipe.
