    So I got two new pipes and wanted one to dedicate to English/Latakia blends. Not sure which one though so I want your input.

    IMO the dark pipe for English/Balkans and the light colored pipe is more the flake pipe.

    What could I expect for time/number of smokes before they get a decent cake on them for the types of tobacco? If I remember correctly English takes the longest to build up.

    My advice? Don't worry about cake.

    Just clean your pipe after every smoke. I empty the ashes then use a dull pipe knife to gently remove bits and pieces, followed by a "reaming" with a clean paper towel, then the pipe cleaner drill (I prefer BJ Long's "Extra Absorbent," 56 cost about $1 in quantity at P&C).

    I don't use a reamer and my cake, using the above technique, is kept between the thickness of a dime and a nickel, which is what most "experts" recommend.

    I would use the bent Dublin pipe for the English blends. It looks like a great pipe. Enjoy your smokes.

    Light colored for flakes. Why? The long stem and conical bowl are ideal for them

    I do this and get the same results
