I do agree with the above. Just keep in mind pretty much none of those are to be found on AliExpress. With musical instruments China is about where Japan was in 1970. They are quickly gaining ground if you weed out the garbage.

Hello from Canada. I don’t have any experience with the Chinese pipes.

The Peterson Dracula must be fantastic and I know the Vauen Auenland pipes are top notch. I’d just smoke those and save your pipe acquisitions for some factory pipes from companies with good reputations like the ones you mentioned. They are well worth it and can give you a lifetime of smoking.

Thanks, you've got a valid point. At least I know that they are legit, and safe😉👍

It pays to know your carver. If you buy from one of the known Chinese artisans, you will be getting a magnificent pipe with Chinese style aesthetics. The problem is they will cost a LOT of money and it doesn't seem you want to do that. Buy a cheap Chinese pipe and you get, well you know.

Welcome! I've got one Chinese pipe and it's a Roadtown and smokes fine. I don't think I'd trust a brand I hadn't heard of before or who's materials I didn't know about. What I'd really like is to get an artisan pipe from China.

Welcome to the forum from shanghai in china,but i have house in ca.i like sixten,lars,nana,poul ilsted,jess,and aged tobacco.what about you~
I'm loving the sutliff molto dolce tobacco from the US at the moment, and a peterson blend called sunset breeze. I like the smaller nose warmer pipes for general everyday smoking.
