    I've seen a nice looking dublin brebbia pipe, the price is a little above my impulse buy range, are they pretty decent pipes? Good for the money? I haven't heard anything about them really.

    I have had a few and find them to be good smokers.

    If at first you don't succeed you are running about average.

    I've owned a few. Decent, factory-made pipes that I'd put on a par with Peterson.

    I have one. When I bought my Brebbia Lectura it was a "basket pipe"... back in the early 80's.
    So, I had a Churchwarden stem fitted for it.
    It has been a great pipe and is in my regular rotation.
    Has been for a long time.

    I had one that I gifted a young guy on this forum after he had lost all of his pipes. I found it to be a great smoker and I hope he is enjoying it as much as I did.

    As an example to others, and not that I care for moderation myself, it has always been my rule never to smoke when asleep, and never to refrain from smoking when awake.

    I'm also in the market for a Brebbia. How do they compare with Mauro Armellini. I'm smoking a big, beautiful Armellini spigot filled with 4noggin's Weybridge and it's a great experience.

    I have about six Brebbias (new and vintage) and they are all great smokers! I have a vintage Brebbia 6006 (a bent billiard) that smokes just as good (or better) than a lot of my higher end pipes. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a Brebbia to anyone (especially a new smoker) as I think they're pipes that will grow with you and only get better with age.

    I have a Brebbia # 834, rusticated with an amber lucite stem. It's a beautiful little pipe that consistently smokes very well. I'd recommend it to anyone and agree that it is improving with age.

    I gifted one to a friend some years back and wish I had got one for myself. I know he really enjoys it.

    I want more brebbias they are my favorite pipe so far. They have a heavily rusticated version in black that looks amazing.

    I really dig my Brebbia Ninja, it's one of my better pipes and it smokes great.

    I had one Brebbia, the "Diseguale." I got it because I liked the looks, but soon discovered it had a lacquered finish. I stopped smoking it because of thoughts about the safety of the finish, which was likely a chemical lacquer. Then sold it to make room for a more useful pipe. I will say it smoked well.

    I have a couple of Brebbia Korrals that were made I believe in the 80's for the Duetsch market.
    Smoke great with a gnarly rustication.
