I definitely enjoy the difference from briar. The pipe gets a tad hot when first breaking it in but cools down very fast.. The smoke has always been cool and dry. I liked it enough to buy another for my Virginias/Vapers
Clicking on this thread again by accident, I am compelled to say
WOW what a pipe once again
5100 years old!!! Thats like the time of Moses I think. Definitely pre King David. Its almost as old as dirt.
i do admire the melding of color and particularly the elegant use of the white stem, which can be difficult to harmonize with a pipe. That jaunty angle of the brim and the nifty work on the shank and stem are also notable. The use of morta really makes it a special cooker. The photo is superb.
That's good to know, banjo. I'm seriously considering one. I don't own a morta pipe and his carving looks great. I really like his style.
Didimauw, I'm about to have a nice big box full of BF on the way, so I'll happily take a picture to show it laying amongst all the bounty!
