This is an excellent way to try pipe smoking. The Dr. Grabow pipe is by no means top of the line, but it is a nice starter. The tobaccos are a very good variety for a beginner to sample. I personally fell in love with the Molto Dulce. Guess I am going to be one of those guys that likes the aromatic tobaccos. Since receiving this kit I decided I do enjoy pipe smoking and have a growing pipe collection of 6 total(for now). Three of them are Dr. Grabow. Thanks CI for having an affordable and practical way to sample the world of pipes.
Great starter kit only thing miss is the lighter.
Where to start... the bad news, the Dr. Grabow Pipe. If you read the fine print on this ad, you'll notice it says, '...pipe models may differ from our product image.' I guess I didn't see that when I ordered, and the pipe WAS different. It's a straight style Golden Duke Rustic, rather than the beautiful Full Bent Smooth. Oh well, I've found it to be a fine pipe, and those little filters really make pipe maintenance a breeze. More good news, the included tabac.s are very good. So far the stand out is the Sutliff Private Stock Molto Dulce. It's super mild, moist, and flavorful. The 'Made in Czech Republic' pipe tool is well made and useful. Note to new pipe smokers, the vacuum locked Davidoff tin can be opened by using the longer of the three tools. Place the circular potion in one of the side recesses, and rotate upward. (I.E., To pry the lid off.) Cheers
This kit includes a lot of middle-of-the-road stuff that a beginner pipe smoker needs. All of the tobaccos are fantastic (except for one, but that's probably just personal taste) and the pipe, though nothing special, is a great, reliable pipe. Mine was straight as opposed to the bent pipe in the picture, but that's not a big deal. If you're looking for an affordable window into the hobby, this is your best bet!
Love it... Not bad for a starter!
EXCELLENT ITEMS, I WILL BUY MORE STUFF, WELL I ALREADY DID!!!. SEE YOU NEXT TIME
I bought this kit and was really pleased with it. I smoke pipe or cigar once in a while and was looking for another pipe and some tobacco. I liked that it had the 3 in 1 pipe tool which I've never had. The tobacco is superb. I've had the Borkum Riff, but hadn't had the others. I'm smoking the Davidoff Green Mixture and love it. So if you are starting out in pipe smoking then this is a good kit or you've been smoking awhile I would recommend this to anybody.
Can't complain! The pipe is a sturdy Dr. Grabow kit, the pipe tool is much nicer than the one I had, and the included tobacco is top notch!
