It’s not the Size of your Pipe…
Actually sometimes it is. Here’s a big sit-down pipe, 6″ long and 2″ tall. The chamber is 7/8″ by 1 3/4″ which is large, but still real easy to smoke – maybe the easiest of any. Pipes this size are a little intimidating but once you get used to them, it’s hard to turn back. They practically smoke themselves, and usually at a luke-warm sort of temperature. This is a terrific cross-cut block out of Italy, super clean and great grain (the one head-on pic with a flash shows the grain a little better, shows the color as both brighter and redder than it actually is). 56 grams (2 oz) so it’s big but not even close to heavy.
I wouldn’t sell a pipe I didn’t think was good quality. This is GOOD quality, in a very English sort of tradition – handcut ebonite for the stem and all stiff lines, none of the neo-classical relaxations of the shape. Drilled absolutely perfect, this really should be an excellent smoker. If you like to simmer tobaccos on the milder end of the spectrum for a couple hours, or if you like fast-burning shags, again, this would really allow you to load up and zone out. If you smoke Revor, go buy one of the little pipes!
