I recently got a second pipe, I would call it normal size. My first pipe is a small bowl, short pipe. Both are made of briar. I really like how the larger pipe smokes, it is cooler and has a better draw. The flavor of the tobacco is also better in it. What I don't like as much about it is how tall the bowl is, if I fill it I use more tobacco than I am comfortable spending. I have tried not smoking the full bowl, but enjoy fresh tobacco when I want to smoke again. I also don't like trying to light a bowl with the tobacco far below the rim. I am wondering what attributes are making the normal sized pipe a better smoke than my nose warmer. Is it the stem length, the internal diameter of the bowl or stem? Do you have any recommendations on a pipe that holds a smaller than normal amount of tobacco?
