That's a fun video! How did it smoke with the tapered airway?
BTW, I have a pipe I call my hot rod pipe. It was made by Paul Tatum.

Dude...
I could read the nomenclature just fine. Barling's Make Ye Olde Wood 519 EL. Shank end looked like it had been "faced" and tapered down with the previous re-stem. Topped...maybe. The whole pipe re-stained...maybe, but it showed the grain contrast very well; lovely sweeping grain on that stummel.
The result...it's your pipe...
The International British Pipe Collectors Society, Barling's Section - Legal Division is considering charges.

Hell, I knew it was a Barling before George revealed that it was. The shaping gave it away. It looks pretty darned good.

Just now finished bowl #1.
Everything went exactly as desired/intended/hoped. :D :D :D
Effortless draw, intense flavor, stayed lit, and didn't get hot (because the flavor intensity slows your puff rate, I imagine). And the stem is mega-comfortable. Tongues and lips are sensitive AF (duh), and a total absence of angularity & sharp edges is something that registers instantly and is subconsciously appreciated the entire time. Such a button will make you wonder why it isn't the industry standard.
Overall score on a ten scale? Absolutely a ten. Oh yeah... 8)
PS -- the hot rod theme + flame stem might be lost on today's yoot, but I definitely get it. (wish I'd thought of it, in fact)
