    NASPC Pipe Show

    I was also amazed at the quality smoke that my Castello turned out to be. It is the best smoking pipe in my rotation. Remember you could always sell a few of your other pipes that you have acquired to fund another. Congrats! :puffpipe:

    How To Deal With Controversial Opinions
