I know I've been singing the praises of Tsuge pipes quite a bit recently but my goodness is it a supreme pipe. I've been breaking in my little Dublin with Escudo. I just finished smoking my last bit of the tin and it smoked clear to the bottom with no relights, no gurgle, nothing left in the bowl but white ash, and beautiful flavor the whole way down. It's everything I could ask for in a pipe beautiful, well made, damn tasty, and a seriously fine value. If something better out there exists I want to know how! This isn't to say that I won't own an artisan pipe or high end machine made someday, but before I do I will probably add several more of these little gems to my collection.
