Pipe Smoker's Accessories Make a Great Gift Idea

Copyright (c) 2008-2019

No matter what your views happen to be when it comes to smoking,you cannot deny that pipe-smoking itself carries with it it's own air of mystique. Many people have strong associations when it comes to pipes. For some, it brings to mind a beloved relative, while for others, thanks to dramas and Saturday morning cartoons, it is the indispensable prop of mustache-twirling villains! If you are looking for a great pipe accessory whether it is for a gift or a costume, you'll find that there are several items that you can keep in mind. Remember, though that good-quality pipe accessories are difficult to find, so you should always remember to go through a good vendor!

Whether you are a looking for a glamorous, old-fashioned look, you'll find that you can't go wrong with a meerschaum pipe. Meerschaum is a very hard white mineral, and it is used to form the bowl of the pipe. Because meerschaum itself is light and porous, the smoke remains cool and soft without being acrid. Most frequently, the meerschaum is carved into various shapes, from skulls to unicorns, and can often be considered works of art in and of themselves. The meerschaum, which starts out white, will slowly mature over time to shades of gold and amber.

Butz-Choquin pipes are not as often decorated as meerschaum pipes, but they have been around for quite some time. This brand of pipe comes originally from France, and the company was founded more than a century ago by tobacconists Jean-Baptiste Choquin and Gustave Butz. The first pipe created by this company involved the use of a flat-bottomed hearth, silver rings and albatross bone. You'll find that this company creates more than 70 different types of pipes, and all of them fall under an extremely high level of craftsmanship.

For simple elegance, however, you can't beat the Stanwell pipes. The Stanwell company was started in 1942 in Zealand, and the first pipe put out by this company was quite small compared to other models. This small size of these pipes are excellent due to the expense of pipe products and they will allow a smoker to use a smaller amount of tobacco while making it go a longer way. Take some time to examine the Stanwell pipe's classic lines and efficient shape.

Though they are often used for cigars, humidors can also do a lot to keep your pipe tobacco in good condition; though chances are, if you have an interest in pipes, you also have an interest in cigars. To keep your tobacco in excellent shape, you'll find that the use of a good humidor is not only preferable, it's practically mandatory! A good humidor will keep the humidity to a level that is ideal for ensuring that your tobacco neither dries out or becomes damp and this can be a wonderfully thoughtful gift for a friend or family member.

Remember that when you are looking at pipes that there are a wide variety of different forms and functions that you can take advantage of. Some will have bowls with caps, while others will replicate designs that are around a century old. If you have a pipe collection, make sure that you explore the various types of pipes from around the world, including things like Czech peasant pipes and the utilitarian capper pipe.

Similarly, if you are involved in the creation of a persona, whether on the stage or off, you'll find that accessories can make the man -or woman!- and you'll be in good company when you take a look at cigarette cases. Not only can these cases keep your tobacco dry, they can also make sure that when you are offering a smoke to someone, you do it with style! Also keep in mind that at home, storing your pipe can look as elegant as smoking it. Consider pipe stands that will display your pipe collection or leather pipe cases that will protect them if you need to travel.

Another popular item, especially around Halloween, are the long cigarette holders, that are a great accessory to the Hollywood Movie Costumes, or the villain in 100l Dalmations!

Whether you are shopping for yourself, a play or a loved one, remember that there is a great deal to be found when you start looking for pipe accessories, so don't forget to keep your eyes open!
