    Maybe I need to get a clay pipe. I have heard nothing but good things. I figured they got kinda hot to the touch.

    If you can't pack it, light it, and smoke it then why do it. It's a dieing art that must be rekindled in all of us as fortold by our forefathers.

    Theres an old timey festival by me over the summer. I've seen clay pipes there. I might get one. I'm assuming since the bowl get so hot you hold it by the stem. Is that comfortable?

    As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

    For me, I like to think of it as holding a long pencil. It's comfortable indeed, but the bowl gets unbelievably hot. I almost scorched my fingerprint while attempting to hold it by the bowl.

    And if you are thinking about buying it online, get it from the site above: http://www.pipeshoppe.com

    The owner has good knowledge about a great customer service.

    Bingo. Yeah, I either hold it by the stem with the bowl hovering behind my fingers, but I have quite large hands,either that or with my thumb and two fingers like a pencil with the stem being the point and the little nubbin of the cutty resting on the meat behind my thumb

    one of my biggest pipe-buying regrets came when I lost an auction for a solid silver, British military pipe rack which held / came with 12 clay pipes with varying military insignias - all unsmoked. It was on ebay and eventually sold for 200 bucks, but was clearly worth 10 times that much. I imagined how ceremonial it would be for a bachelor party or fishing outing, etc...or just sitting there.
