Glad you like the pipe- the picture really doesn’t give is justice. It really reminded me of a Birdseye Maple drum set that Drum Works made in the exotic wood series. The pipe smokes fine - the draft is decent though I did not think so at first. Draw feel like my other pipes. Still, it serves as my “go to” pipe.
I have two Chacom pipes, a straight tapered smooth billiard with green stain stamped Chacom Exquise but done for Iwan Ries. Unlike some green stain, this has held up well and stayed dark green. The other is a Chacom Elite blast yacht; the chamber looks small but is fairly deep.
