Picked this up in a lot of pipes and am wondering if this is a real clay pipe that I can smoke, or just decoration? Hoping it's real so I can try my first clay!

Yep,

It's for real. Being a short nose warmer type clay I recommend you puff gently or the tongue will suffer. The pipe depicted seems to be an authentic antique. Enjoy.

Awesome! Unless it's worth a Kagillion dollars I'm gonna learn how a clay smokes :)

In that case, go ahead and smoke that little gem, but make sure to hold it by the stem or you'll burn your pinkies!!!! LOL

Looks like it's a cutty! I don't like cutties because they are short in length....

The pipe gets kinda hot! I think it was kinda like smoking a Meer though because the smoke relatively cool. I was smoking Haunted Bookshop and thought it was pretty damn good. Not sure if it was just me but the peppery zing I get was pretty pronounced. That is a good thing to my tastes.

I used chapstick on the stem lol

The feel of the pipe will take some getting used too but I for sure will be smoking it some more. Next going to try some PA and see if it smokes a bit cooler to the touch.

That's a pretty neat looking clay pipe there. Sorry to ask a possible dumb question but who makes Haunted Bookshop?
