Been trying to keep the PAD in check for as long as possible this year. I didn't even make it a whole month
I usually prefer classic shapes like billiards and apples, but this Bjarne Freehand just screamed at me, and I won the auction for (what I feel was) a good price earlier today.
Pipe came in today. Gave it a quick reaming and a couple runs with a moonshine soaked pipe cleaner before loading her up for a test drive. Proud to say that she smokes as good as she looks, which is a relief. Nothing worse than buying a great looking pipe and finding out its a bad smoker.
