    I'd like to find a really good "jaw hanger" pipe. The hands free smoker that looks so elegant. I'm just unsure of what a good one would be. Any suggestions?

    Also a Sav Roma 614. I know Savs are good but the GBD is different. Also sorry for the multiple posts here.

    Get a Peterson shape 01, 02 or 03. The 03 is the smaller of the three. Fantastic "hangers".

    I suggest a bent apple for a hanger. Similar to that 03 Peterson.

    I have a Kriswill Clipper Bent Apple that hangs perfect, and one I really enjoy. It won't pass a cleaner, but worth the trouble cleaning after a smoke, because it smokes so well.

    There's a Schoenleber Smooth Bent Apple (5) that fits that description but I know nothing about that name

    I would add the 14 and 17 shapes, but be aware that the 14 is compact in size and the 17 is a really small pipe.

    It all depends on your over-bite/under-bite, jaw strength, the condition of your teeth, whether you will have the pipe deep into your mouth, hold it with just your front teeth, out the side of your mouth, etc. So, pick a shape you like and see how it fits. I choose pipes I know will fit my style. Surprisingly, I find "fish-tail" or P-lip" work with my style It took a while to determine what was most comfortable so, I wouldn't think of suggesting one style for you, too many individual difference and preferences involved.

    I just offered on another thread -- take a look at the Pete B11 brandy in various series. It's unappreciated, but it is a relatively light weight, ample bowled, bent sitter, and almost a volcano in shape, but well proportioned.

    My current fav. Savinelli Dry System (620) hangs nice, filter helps with those wet blends or the ones that make your mouth water. The bowl size is in the medium+ size. You can't go wrong.

    I just got this one today via UPS delivery. It makes the chin hanger grade for me. A Savinelli Punto Oro Classic Bordeaux 614 Hungarian.

    GBD makes a solid pipe. I've restored a few I picked up as estates. Somewhere around 1980 they merged with Comoys, and their quality took quite a bit of a hit. If that estate you are looking at is pre-Comoys, snap it up. If it's post-Comoys, it will still be a good pipe, but the Sav is probably a touch better.

    Beautiful Punto Oro. Close to being a shape other than Hungarian, perhaps.

    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.

    Yep, the 614 is one of their bent billiards and the 620 is their Hungarian.

    I like the Peterson’s for a deep bend. The moisture trap in the shank does an excellent job of keeping things dry. My three favorites are the XL17 (Watson), XL23 (Le Strade), & XL12 (Baskerville).

    Along with my two Pete B11 brandies, I like my Sav Hercules Hungarian, which because of its U-turn bend feels nearly weightless.

    I recently bought a Stanwell #83 bent billiard that I have been digging.

    A Julius Vesz Raindrop would probably suit you.

    Recently bought a Pete unfinished yacht (bent Dublin), distinctive for its light weight but ample bowl. For a Pete, it's puny but an excellent pipe. I think it's designated D7.

    I ended up going with the GBD and so far it's been a good smoker. Idk what the age is on it but I didn't have a GBD and already had 2 Savs so I decided to try something different. Still might get the Sav though...

    Where's the GBD stamp on it, nite? If it's a brass rondel on the stem you've got a pre-Cadogan, which guarantees a good one! I just can't get used to having one without it. The one I do have is ok, but certainly not up to standards of my 3rd-oldest pipe, a gorgeous Virgin I bought back in the 70s when I worked for Tinder Box back in FL.

    It has the brass rondel on the stem, that's one of the little touches I first noticed about the pipe that set it off for me.
