There are 10 briars in my small collection, but since I just started smoking a pipe 9 months ago I figure that's a decent rate of acquisition.
Decent. Decent. A good start.
But it doesn’t demonstrate serious commitment.

Are you still wasting money on food?
Rent or a mortgage?

Panhandling. A simple relocation to a cardboard box under a bridge. Dumpster diving. There are many ways to increase your acquisition rate if you’re really serious.

The only reason you need to rent or purchase a dwelling is to store your tobacco. Once the tobacco forces you out, the cardboard box, the bridge, panhandling.

Poinking a cob includes, but is not limited to: putting one in your mouth, smoking it, holding it with affection, cleaning it, talking positively about it, or photographing for positive reasons.
By that definition I poink a cob at least weekly. I'm not putting aromatics in my briars.
That's poinked up. If you enjoy aromatics then why not enjoy them in a real pipe? How many briar pipes do you own and what are you saving them for?
I mostly smoke nonaromatics. There are 10 briars in my small collection, but since I just started smoking a pipe 9 months ago I figure that's a decent rate of acquisition. I've tried smoking some Newminster blackberry brandy in one of my briar pipes, but I was tasting blackberry brandy in the next two bowls smoked in that pipe. Same thing happened with Cult Blood Red Moon. So I made the decision to only smoke the heavily-cased american style aromatics in cobs. FWIW, I do have a nice Peterson that I've dedicated to lakelands - they're aromatics of a sort.

I guess I could devote one of my briars to aromatics. I have had the fleeting thought of dedicating my Bones fat author (it's basically about the same size/shape as a Savinelli 320) to aromatics.
Sounds reasonable to me.

I would not trade any Cob in my collection for a box of Dunghills.

Well not really, I like my Cobs. I would rather someone have the Dunhill that would enjoy it.

I enjoy mine as well (more than all my pipes except meerschaums) but a box full of dunnies would put some significant cash in my pocket, allowing me to replace my cobs and oh, I dunno, buy a shotgun or three. Or a Tinsky or 15. Or a trip to visit the Tick Farm. Or....

A buck sixty-five, more or less.
And a bargain at that price, let me tell you.

How to poink a cob

Post by JohnnyMcPiperson » Mon Dec 24, 2018 11:56 am

I like my cobs just as much as my briars, for certain tobaccos more, but I will say just like any other pipe, not all cobs are created equal, they are making some much higher quality cobs out there these days, even custom artisan ones. And you can get an artisan cob much cheaper than an artisan briar which is nice.

Do it, although Eric Mills is doing an awesome custom cob that he’s taking orders for right now if you are on smokers guild or silent smokers on FB. PM me your name on FB and I’ll point you in the right direction, can’t remember if we are FB friends.
