F.A.Q. - Pipe Smoking Accessories

What tools are needed to smoke a pipe?

The most basic tools are: A pipe and tobacco (both are usually necessary!), matches/lighter, a pipe tool, and a packet of pipe cleaners. I advise NOT to start with only pipe and tobacco (some people do). A pipe tool is important; it's a little, cheap, metal piece with three "arms": One is spoon-like you use to scoop the tobacco with, another is a simple "rod" you poke the tobacco with or run through the shank when there's something lying in there, and the third is an arm with a flat, circular piece that you use to tamp (press) the tobacco with during the smoke. Cleaners are equally important, unless you intend to smoke only once and then throw away the pipe or you're planning on smoking the pipe repeatedly without cleaning it, till you hate the day you decided to give the pipe a try!
