    Thanks,
    I am pretty excited about it actually.
    I have not held a pipe in several years!!

    It is very much an upgraded version of my first pipe 22 years ago. It was a cheap little basket freehand but I sure liked it and it was my introduction into the pipe world.

    I smoked the stew out of that thing! Didn't know anything and just started learning how to pack it and relax in my draw.
    Before I knew it, I had about 10 pipes pretty quickly and realized how much I REALLY liked Bullies! Straight, bent, and half bents.

    But something about that first little pipe drew me to this one and I hope it smokes as good as it looks!!

    Don't expect little with that one, I don't think Erik knows the meaning of small.

    Love them Nordings. You'll enjoy it. That's an interesting version of his classic freehand, lots of shaping and texture.

    I bet it will. In fact, I bet it will smoke even better than expected. All of my Nordings smoke great.

    Let us know how it is when you get it. Congratulations, and enjoy the heck out of it!

    Nording Fantasy 5 if I'm right, right? You're gonna love it, trust me.

    [[Oh, BTW, you should know that I have a rep for over-the-top affection on some makers, just on General Principles. Nording is my #1 & Savinelli close behind it.]]

    And BTW2, welcome, puff!! Glad to have you here!

    Just a little fyi folks...I am actually about 15-19 hours ahead of you as I live in Okinawa, Japan.
    I am here with the Army Corps of Engineers.

    I am actually hoping that the pipe is on the larger side as I have also grown a bit in the last 22 years..LOL

    It is a Moss Freehand (F)

    And thank you for the welcome!

    Let's do our best to keep the conversation clean. No reason to bring quack pipes into the discussion.

    I say this often but.... I have Nordings from the low cost Nording Signature, to the highest Grade 20. All of them deliver a fantastic smoke. I'm willing to bet yours does the same. You just can't go wrong with a Nording, in my opinion.

    That's what I'm hoping.

    This is my first Nordy and after taking such a long break from the pipe, I am looking forward to smoking it and trying some non aromatics for the first time!

    Pretty fast considering it came all the way to Okinawa!

    I will post pics and first impressions after a clean and some Orlik Golden Slice is consumed through it!

    Well I see you fellas are still flapping about!

    Got the Nordy in and ran some everclear through the stem and on a paper towel around the chamber.

    Wasn't ready for all that soot to grace the towel!!

    I will photo and smoke it tomorrow after work with some Orlik Golden Sliced for it's initial flight!

    I also have some Amphora Black Cavendish and good ole CB original that I will smoke in a few estate pipes after some disinfecting!

    Well goota fly for now.....
