A while ago I made an Arbutus pipe with a cob shank, I liked the way it smoked but the way it looked and felt in hand always bugged me. Last night I couldn't sleep so I reshaped it and gave the stem (MM plastic replacement stem lol) a little bend by heating it with a lighter. Now it's more of a Dublin-ish shape.

Well done. I really like the reshape. How does it smoke?
It smoked good before, but the reduced weight and slight bend in the stem make clenching much more comfortable. The bottom third has pretty thin walls now, so the exterior gets pretty hot if I'm not careful.
