What a fantastic pipe! This is my first OMS pipe (the poker) and not only is it visually stunning, it has a hearty bowl the way I like, has rustication that is so gripping, and it smokes fantastic. I never smoke one particular pipe more than once per a day, and yet I smoked this pipe three times the day it arrived since I like it so much! Now the problem is what shall be my next shape? Thank you so much for a pipe whose quality exceeds the price – one that I can actually manage to afford!
