With Pouch, shouldn't that be a Persian Slipper?

That would be for his tobacco. His Pipes he kept on the mantle.

I'm not going to say this is a bad deal per say,.but I am sure you could pick up something similar and just as cheap at any discount cigarette store. Any one who really smokes a pipe would never buy this. The description does not tell you who makes the pipe, or what its made of(not wood by the looks of it). If your really interested in pipe smoking, do yourself a favor and go to a real tobacco/pipe/cigar store. Let them know your on a budget,. New briar wood pipes start at about $20-25 on the cheap side and most places have a few factory seconds for less than that. For less than $30 you should be able to get out of the store with a decent first pipe and 3-4 sample size bags of different high quality pipe tobacco. Enjoy!

@jds3266: Yea, looking at the title, I was thinking tobacco pouch, not for the pipe. My dad use to smoke a pipe and always had a tobacco pouch on his person :)

It seems pretty absurd to me when a company tries to glom onto some cultural fad, especially when they haven't done their homework on what a "sherlock" pipe might look like. Most people consider the Calabash pipe to be the quintessential Sherlock Holmes pipe, they could have at least thrown one of those up here to succeed in their cultural reference (though, Sherlock Holmes is never purported to have smoked a Calabash pipe and as that type of pipe yields a mild, cool smoke and Holmes was described as liking the dank, heavy tobacco, he probably wouldn't have smoked that pipe anyway. In the books he smoked various pipes including clay pipes, briar pipes, and, specifically, a churchwarden on occasion. The recent movie was fairly accurate by having Robert Downy Jr. smoke that little briar pipe.).

But who knows? Maybe the company who makes it is called "Sherlock Tobacco Pipes". If the amazon page had a bit more info we wouldn't have to do all this speculating.

It certainly doesn't look like a meerschaum calabash pipe, which is what I would expect from anything labeled "Sherlock".

Anyone younger than 50 smoking out of a pipe makes my list of doucebags. They're right next to people who refer to themselves in the third person and those who wear insane amounts of axe body spray.

Don't knock it till you try it, my friend. A good-smoking pipe is a supremely enjoyable meditative activity. Beats the hell out of cigarettes, and the ladies usually enjoy the smell of good pipe tobacco (as opposed to cigars).

I am not dismissing the smell or taste, but the act (specifically if you are younger than 50). I am sure the smell of a pipe is lovely and attractive to women. However, I'd prefer to keep myself healthy; and if that means trying a little harder to woo women then I'm perfectly fine with that. Not to mention, the act of smoking a pipe makes you look like an attention seeking, wannabe intellectually refined douche bag.

@knitknots: really? so rationalize your inclusion of third person self reference and axe body spray, while not including smoking cigarettes or other unhealthy activities? oh wait, you're just a hater - peace out!

Most pipe smokers do so in the privacy of their own home, because smoking in public brings up stupid people with questions like "Is that a pipe?!" and there is nothing more irritating than having to answer someone I don't know when I'm trying to relax and enjoy a bowl.

Pipe smokers smoke for their own pleasure, Sherlock.

I am 23 and enjoy smoking my pipe. I never smoke socially, or as a "look at me" tactic. I smoke to relax and because I like the taste. People that smoke for attention probably aren't going to go out and buy an expensive pipe and tobacco, they're going to smoke Swisher Sweets and Phillies. Ignorant people who hate on the internet make my list of douche bags.

vote-for1vote-against

so people are hating on pipe smokers? I'mnot apipe smoker I'm a cigar smoker, but seriously you're going to hate on people who mainly don't go out of their own house with their pipes....wow now who's the attention seeking DB.

on a seroious note never buy a pipe that you don't know the origin or material. It's like smoking "tobacco" you found on the street, most likely some "hater" has peed in it spite you.

If however this is just for costume/decoration you can get cheaper that look better.

@knitknots: I'd agree with you until I ran the gamut from cigarettes to cigars to pipes. Cigarettes are gross, and I love dark cigars, but pipe tobacco is WAYYYYYY cheaper than cigars, and is just as good most of the time. So my finances dictate that when I want to chill on the porch, it's a pipe in my hand and not a cigar.

@cheetous: OMG top ten list of annoying (mod edit: profanity) to hear: "What are you smoking in that? wink wink Can I get a hit?!? ... No way! That's not tobacco! If you didn't wanna share, you could just say it. Don't be a liar!"
