I picked this one up Sunday from Tim West on Ebay. It was just something about it that caught my eye and I had to have it. It arrived yesterday and I'd have to say it's nicer than the pictures (which I borrowed from the auction) show. I fired it up tonight with some Black Bayou Mist that was part of my TAD acquisitions for this month. I'd tried the BBM in my Barling Monday when it arrived and found it pretty good, smoky and spicy but not overly strong. In this pipe was still smoky and spicy but the smoke was mellowed more. It was quite good and the pipe is a very good smoker. With it's big bowl and large chamber I wonder if it will be better for the latakia blends. Time will tell I guess.
