I'm officially a pipe noob

The missus set me up with Peterson 80s (1/4 bent bulldog) with a beautiful smooth finish on a very contrasty grain briar. With a few little bags of smoke and a 3:1 tool

I'm loving it. But I'm realizing that packing and lighting is definitely an art to learn.

It's like this one ...

Beautiful! I am learning on my own, too, with a LOT of help from here. I have just recently gotten a pipe packed right to stay lit most of the time. I have to say, the effort is worth it. Also, get a pipe tool, if you havent' already. The tamper is valuable, and the pick makes ending much easier.

I think the greatest thing anyone new to pipe smoking can learn is to take your time and be patient with your pipe and remember its not a cigar. It operates totally different.
