    So here's my 3rd buy of the month. It's pretty simple and straight forward. This is my first Bjarne, so I was wondering what some of you thought of them? Are they good smokes?

    I bought one from Marty Pulvars, unsmoked, Marty said that it was unsual for him to get one unsmoked. It's a decent smoker I don't believe you will regert getting it.

    I'm a big fan of the original, hand-made Bjarnes with the "BJ" logo. I think they are excellent pipes that can still be found for not a lot of money. The current "Viking" series pipes are a shadow of their former selves.

    I think you did very well.

    I have a small Ribbon that is a nice pipe for flakes. The older pipes are not easy to find so you did well and should have a good smoker. Good luck and Happy Smoke Rings.

    I have a Bjarne Viking "Denver" Rhodesian which is an inexpensive pipe, and it is a good pipe.
