Acacia wood pipe

Acacia wood pipe

Postby ArbroathSmokie » Sun Feb 16, 2014 2:16 pm

Hi,
I just bought an Acacia wood handmade pipe from a Polish pipe maker. I've been scouring the internet for info on acacia woods in pipe manufacture, and found little. Has anyone seen or used an acacia wood pipe?

Thanks in advance :)

Sorry, I saw Acacia pipes, but never smoke them.

Hey Piperman,
Can I ask why you have stayed clear of the acacia wood pipes. Should be arriving sometime this week, so I'll know how it smokes :)

Before smoking the pipe you might make sure that it doesn't cause allergic reactions and is not poisonous. There are a number of woods you don't want to smoke.
Pipe smoking: the most cultivated taking of tobacco; a good friend and a sublime addiction; but give me a cigar, too. But so expensive: smoke up and smoke less.

I have an acacia wood pipe...a Mr Brog XL. Not a bad pipe at all, cannot understand why this wood is not used more!

You did realise your old boat was named after a tree, right...? :shock:

Sorry, Chuck: I misunderstood. Thanks for the link; plants in general seem to have been the order of the day :)

I use Google to show me what woods are safe for pipes.

I like the idea of googling to establish the safety of a pipe for smoking.

Maybe other woods are not widely used as it requires special effort. Briar was established as the goto wood for pipes a long time ago, and it is indeed a fine medium for pipes. Since then operations have been established to dig it out and mills to cure and cut it. The mills have relationships with pipe makers who when they need the medium, order from the mills as needed. When the maker needs wood, he goes to his woodpile of briar, waiting there to be used. My point is that this is standard practice, and using other wood non-standard.
