Hello all !
Welcome to my world of everything related to pipe smoking.
I enjoy pipe smoking, collecting and refurbishing old pipes. I mostly collect or try to collect pre-1955 American made pipes. My favorite shapes and styles you will see mostly on here is straight stem billiards and pokers. KBB Yello Boles, Linkman/ Dr. Grabow’s and Kaywoodies are the most common of my collection and collecting, but you will see other American makes,shapes and styles with even a non American pipe thrown in the mix on occasion. I have posted my refurbished pipes on other sites (mostly Dr.Grabow Collectors Forum and Rebornpipes) so i may pull one of those out every so often and just do a showcase piece on a certain pipe. I like to share to my tips and tricks i have learned on refurbishing pipes. I will also post links to other peoples work and techniques that i think would be interesting and a worthwhile read. I may also list a pipe or two that I am willing to trade and or sale.
I will not limit my posting to just pipes .I may give a tobacco review on occasion or share a home blend i have come up with as i do tinker around some with home tobacco blending.
I’m also a fan of American history,classic movies, books and music. If i see something related to pipe smoking in any of those categories and think its a worth while mention it might also find its way on on here .
I live in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and where I am at a lot of the rural mountain people (like me) call tobacco ,baccy…… hence the name Baccy Pipes .
I hope everyone will enjoy and find something here that is interesting and helpful in the world of pipes and pipe smoking.
