Love it. I've got a Metamorfosi bent bulldog that I dearly love; took the filter out, of course. Great smoke, easy draw, nice elegant looks. One of my automatic saved searches on eBay is for Christianos.
I bought one about 20 years ago the I love. It’s a small Rhodesian with beautiful grain. I got another off ebay a year or two ago that was awful. Thick dipped stain, lots of fills, and an ill-fitting stem. I sent it back. Don’t know what happened at QC but I guess you have to be extra careful when buying.
