What's manly about smoking a pipe?
It takes patience and time to learn the art or pipe smoking, and all of its lore. It’s a real man who can dedicate himself to an art, or hobby for all that matter.

How did you start smoking a pipe?
I’d had wanted to try the pipe for a long while, even while in high school. Being a fan of all that is classic and has a certain form of etiquette, the pipe community had drawn me in even before the USMC had. But it was not till I came back from my MOS training that I actually met up with my bro and picked up my first pipe.

What was your most interesting moment as a pipesmoker?
Walking through college having heads turn all of a sudden and meeting face to face with one of my old professors. This he said to me: “You smoke pipes eh? Remember that incomplete you had… well, you passed my class, with an A” (He too was a pipe smoker as I came to find out a few days later)

Miscellania you'd like to add:
I’m an Eagle Scout


  1. Love the bit about learning all of the lore. Isn't it a great hobby for the endless amount of information that you don't need to enjoy it, but somehow enhances the experience. Like fly-fishing! Ah, manliness at it's finest.

  2. He's Quidcorpus on youtube :)

  3. My other Favorite pipe smoker is Natalia Butler- my lovely girlfriend :)
