The thing about this one though is that there is no forward cant to the chamber. The back of the bowl is so high that you can't see into the chamber. If the rim was level instead of slanted, there would be no issue. I solved the problem by drawing before bringing the flame down and the downdraft of the draw pulled the flame to the chamber instead of the rim.Ditto. One reason I don't like cutty shapes or anything canted forwards for that matter.
My claw and floral were bought just to look at but the new one and the big skull are going to be regulars once it warms up.Enjoy your new pipe, Embers. I have a couple of meerschaums that I never seem to smoke. And you are correct, they are feather light for their size.
Same here. I’m trying to get my collection down to 25 pipes. 5 lookers and 20 smokers. Good luck, it’s a difficult task....especially when people keep giving you pipes.Nah, just the two. I really don't have a rotation, just switch pipes every few weeks or so. I'm moving towards only a handful of smokers and a few display only pieces.
