I have a couple of pipes (about 25 +/-). If I had to suggest a ”Bang of Buck” pipe to you Brendon, I would have to go with the Savinelli or Petersons systems. They both have a nice smooth smoke. On the other hand I you was something special…go get a Eben Hardt (http://www.ebenharts.co.za/. They are lovely to look at and smoke like a dream.
