    Just happened to come across this today...

    Morgan Bones Artubus

    I’ve seen a handful of Strawberry Wood pipes in the past, and at this price it was hard not to purchase one. I ordered the big sitting Apple.

    Misspelled the name - it’s “Arbutus”...

    Thanks for sharing, sadly they are out of stock on the only one that really spoke to me

    I own a Morgan Bones Cherry Wood shape Arbutus.

    I love it; smokes like a dream and it is very light weight.
    I was apprehensive about the strawberry wood. But after owning one I am a fan of them now!

    Nice. AT that price, they're certainly worth a shot. I really like Unfinished pipes, as well.

    I have an unsmoked Bruce Weaver magnum strawberry billiard. Amazingly light for its massive size. I've heard nothing but good about pipes made from it.

    Why not smoke it? You've said you'll just throw your pipes in the trash when you meet the great blender in the sky (or your heirs will), so fire her up, already!

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Last unsmoked Weaver I will likely ever see since he retired. Keeping it pristine.

    Hey Jeffro, is the coloring on that pipe just from smoking it? Incredible!

    Dani, Yes my pipe is about two years old it was lighter in color when I purchased it.
    Some of the Artubus briar varies from a pinkish color to almost cream color when new and unsmoked.
    The unstained Morgan Bones pipes also color up nicely in time.

    That's awesome. I have an unfinished Sav that has become fairly dark. I like that you can get some of the aesthetic appeal of a darker pipe, but without the use of stains and the like.

    I was fortunate enough to get a Bones Arbutus in a grab bag once with super gnarly grain. Love that thing.

    I can’t ever envision myself buying a pipe with bunny ears stamped on it. Those unfinished Savinellis are sharp and from
    What I’ve seen, a much better choice than than those bones pipes. But to each his own ...

    I like the bunny ears. It's a unique stamp. I will definitely get a Bones at some point.

    The Savinelli Unifinished I own is my favorite pipe. Despite being rather large (803 KS, I believe), it is lightweist, and smokes like a dream. Everything seems to taste great when smoked in it. Granted, I only own about 5 briars, all factory, so my experience is limited, but it's hard for me to imagine wanting more out of a factory pipe. And it cost me like $50. Highly recommended.

    I received the pipe I ordered last week. Blast isn’t all that deep, but it’s got a nice pattern. I own 4 Bones pipes, and they all great smoking pipes. Good value for the money.
