pitchfork, I love my Dublins because they smoke flakes so well. I have more of those than any other shape in my collection, with these two I now have 11 out of 44 pipes. I find that the way the bowl narrows combined with the thick walls, makes for a flake smoking machine. I have other pipes that smoke flakes great as well, maybe it is the look also but I love my Dublins.
gray, sorry buddy but my babies are precious, so no leasing. Hell I only let my son smoke a few of my pipes, and he never touches the artisan ones.
Thanks for all the nice comments guys, it is appreciated.
