Default Pipe smoking

Anyone here smoke a pipe? Is there an age minimum for that? (I joke but all pipe smokers I know are over 60 and have a beard). Do you use the Sherlock Holmes curved style or straight style? What is your favorite pipe tobacco? Do you inhale?

In order...
1. occasionally
2. 18 to buy tobacco. I'm 28 and have a beard, though many people for some reason think I'm nearly 50.
3. Straight stem.
4. Largo natural. Cheap and great tasting mild flavor.
5. I ain't Clittin. What's the frakkin point if you don't inhale?

Build your own and enjoy!

Used to when I was younger but switched to cigars.
And yes, I inhaled!

I did when I was younger from time to time but not a great deal. About from the age of 16 to late 20s. At some point in my late teens I got a bong bong and used the pipe less. As I reached my late 20's, I moved up in my career and decided to stop smoking.

I've smoked a pipe off and on over the years but always go back to cigars.

I prefer a pipe over cigars. I get a smoother, milder smoke from it.

Many cigars aren't properly stored, which leads to a harshness similar to a camp fire. My pipe tobacco is somehow always "just right".

I used to smoke a pipe exclusively, but over the last few years cigars have taken over. I still smoke a pipe occasionally, and I like a Black Cavendish mix. At one time I had eight or nine pipes, but am down to three now. I'm not sure what happened to the others.
