Does anybody have any experience with CAO's offerings?
I know there's a bias on this forum for Storient - and they are lovely pipes - but, before I buy one I'd like to experience the Meerschaum experience with one that would be kinder on the wallet.
I found one on the Bay I like:
and I'd appreciate everybody's thoughts. (Not so much this pipe as Meerschaum in general. I've always smoked briars and that's that.)
