    Picked this up in a lot of pipes and am wondering if this is a real clay pipe that I can smoke, or just decoration? Hoping it's real so I can try my first clay!

    Yep,
    It's for real. Being a short nose warmer type clay I recommend you puff gently or the tongue will suffer. The pipe depicted seems to be an authentic antique. Enjoy.

    In that case, go ahead and smoke that little gem, but make sure to hold it by the stem or you'll burn your pinkies!!!! LOL

    Certainly is, wax the tip of the stem or it will stick to your lips.

    The pipe gets kinda hot! I think it was kinda like smoking a Meer though because the smoke relatively cool. I was smoking Haunted Bookshop and thought it was pretty damn good. Not sure if it was just me but the peppery zing I get was pretty pronounced. That is a good thing to my tastes.
    I used chapstick on the stem lol
    The feel of the pipe will take some getting used too but I for sure will be smoking it some more. Next going to try some PA and see if it smokes a bit cooler to the touch.

    That's a pretty neat looking clay pipe there. Sorry to ask a possible dumb question but who makes Haunted Bookshop?
