My latest pipe, after months of PAD, I gave in and I'm glad I did. I actually kinda like the 9mm filter, shuts down tongue bite. The briar on this baby is thick and solid, I tend to smoke a little hot, but this pipe barely got warm. Fit and finish are fantastic, the blasting is great, the stain on the rim and shank is dark and accents the blast well. The horn inlay on mine is rather dark, and I love it. The chamber is quite large and the drilling is spot on. Its light and small enough to clench easily, and stout and smooth enough to be great in hand. Everything fits like it should, not tight or loose. Comes beautifully packaged, in a velvet pouch, which is inside a nice leatherette box. Overall, I am thoroughly impressed. Just thought I would share in case anyone else has been eyeballing these and wondering about the quality. Pics as soon as i figure out how...
