Smokes great; after a brief period the p-lip (first one I’ve had, and supposedly the most comfortable one yet) has become very comfy and clenches great; after sticking with mainly US mid century estate pipes that screw together I’m used to blowing out moisture mid smoke if it accumulates; and my white whale at this point is a WWI era military mount K&P billiard and this is as close as I may get for the foreseeable future.
This is the only non-cob I’ve bought new, not estate.
Thank you for the thoughtful response.

I prefer bents, but have a few straights in the stable. I also favor a larger chamber (but my larger pipes can easily fit inside the regular smokers of @Chasing Embers and @tbradsim1 ).

My little basket pipe has about a 1/4 bent (if that) and I enjoy shorter smokes and stronger blends with it. While I clench with my bigger pipes, that basket pipe seemingly let's me get more done efficiently (yes, it's all in my head - don't look inside, the wheel still spins but the hamster has been dead for awhile).

As a result of the above along with my new found love for the p-lip and army mount concept, I'm eyeing a Peterson army short. Here's my basket pipe for reference:

How long is a bowl lasting in an X
Size ? Im considering one.
Was just talking about Ashton sizes yesterday at club meetup.
I've got a XX coming, and according to its measurements it could easily be a XXX.
Like the Dunhill group numbers, it varies wildly - sometimes nonsensically.

This early X has a chamber size I've seen on Dunhill groups 1, 2, and 3 - about .73 x 1.5".

Depending on the tobacco cut, this pipe usually lasts me 40-60 minutes.
