    In my youtube suggestion box this a.m. there was a new video put up by Paul of Paul's Pipes.
    If you've entertained yourself with the ytpc much at all, you've become familiar with some of the interaction of these pipe loving characters as they traverse the world in pursuit of pipe related experiences (mostly).
    This vid shows 3 shapes being introduced this week at the Chicago Pipe Show which were first discussed and designed during a visit by The Smoking Dagners to Paul's Pipes last year sometime.
    I find the whole thing really interesting, and these pipes are quite attractive.
    I'm finding that I do like a pipe I can put down w/o necessarily needing a pipe rest.

    Nice looking pipe, A bit on the short side for me. I prefer my pipes to be around the 6" length, but a nice looking burner non the less.

    I think most of the Dagner designs are shorter pipes, not all. He's marketing to a younger and very active demographic. (than you and me, ha ha). These are meant to be 'handy'.
    As for a longer shank presenting cooler smoke, I've read somewhere of reasonable credibility that there is not a real significant difference.
    There are of course, one's personal preferences to be considered.

    Thanks for posting the video newbroom, I am actually looking at buying one of the Dagner pokers. very informative.
    What draws me to the Dagner pipes is that they look sturdy, I only smoke at home but have been thinking of getting a everyday pipe to hitch along with me.

    But, science be damned, if a smoker feels a longer pipe smokes cooler, than it smokes cooler as far as he is concerned.

    Perhaps the Dagner target buyers are the "hipster" smokers.

    A man without a shillelagh is a man without an expedient.

    I might be young, well travelled and urban, but in my neighborhood we view hipsters in the same light as men ordering cocktails in a pub.

    I can't speak toward a longer stemmed pipe smoking cooler or not; I just have a preference for ones with longer stems. However nothing is written in concrete and different pipe shapes and lengths have a way of growing on a person.
    I do admire their marketing strategy.

    Jeff, I suppose if one orders it for breakfast then that'll be okay I reckon.

    A Brit pub? A Yankee pub, such as they are? I didn't know it was gauche to do so, but when in an English pub, it was all lagers and ales for me anyway.

    Is straight whisky a "cocktail"? Or does it have to be a mixed drink?

    Now, ice-cream girly drinks are not allowed in any public venue!

    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.

    I picked up a Dagner designed Missouri Meerschaum pipe and it has become my favorite pipe. Although I have always gravitated to longer Lumberjacks and Canadian pipes, this little Dagner is a dream. The shorter stem allows me to clench the pipe all day and the flat bottom on it means I can set it down anywhere and not have it tip. The pipe has a real no nonsense feel to it, much like a large cigar end clamped between your teeth. This cob is a great work/commute pipe.
    And I am everything that a hipster is not. I am old, not worried about fads, just an old time pipe smoker.

    Well to be honest I am not that young being 36, a couple of weeks ago two girls in their early 20's walk up to me in the gym and shyly ask, ''Sir, can you show us how to use that machine?'' Since then, I started noticing my grey sideburns...

    I could care less if the Dagners are hipsters. That's not why I don't like their pipes. Hipsters are cool, but I just don't like the short out of proportion look. Like those squat fat Briarwork pipes. I don't care much for those either.
