This may be a repete but it seems a good read, So I posted it for those who may not have seen it hope it is useful.

Had a couple of bad bowls this weekend, prompted me to do some article searching, and a good cleaning next Smile

Interesting.

I know, for instance, that out of my 20 pipes (half of which are Dr. Grabows) one of the best smoking ones is a $20 Lane Prince. It has always smoked well, forms cake quickly and evenly, and smokes cool and dry.

Conversely, my $65 Savinelli ks316 smoked wet from the beginning and was a b|!@h to break in.

Both have chambers of similar depth and width. Both are rusticated (which I tend to prefer). Both are slightly bent.

Having said that, I have only been smoking a pipe for several months and am still quite inexperienced.

Perhaps other, more experienced pipe smokers will weigh in?
