I don't always smoke a pipe, but when I do I smoke my Nording.

That's a nice one. Some of my Nordings I tire of the way they look, but they mostly smoke alright. I have to work on the stem of my sitter, it gets a little gurgly at times. Bad Nording! Bad! No gurgling! Laughing

Yea mine tends to gurgle a good amount as well. That's really the only complaint I have with it. I really love the way it looks and the way the briar has turned to that golden brown color.

I've chamfered or widened the draft hole (on the mortise end) of a few of my pipes, and have to give one of my Nordings in particular, the same treatment. Essentially you "trumpet out" the draft hole where the stem's draft hole meets the shank, and this reduces the air turbulence on the rough edges (which reduces condensation) and helps the moisture not go up into the stem like a straw.

Be careful, though, you can chip the stem this way--steady as she goes.

It works brilliantly.

Ahh thanks for that. I'll avoid it for the time being seeing as this is just about the only pipe I've got going at the moment. Someone moved my Peterson and I can't seem to find it... Evil or Very Mad I also don't have the expendable income to replace the pipe should I botch it up. It's terrible being a college student.

Yeah - I remember. All the parties. Cheap/free beer. Horny women. Extensive leisure time.

How about I trade you a dozen pipes for a month being a student again? :-) :-) . 100?

I'll gladly take that. I'm actually going to a private Christian university, so no parties, no beer, and no women. Enjoy, brother. lol

It's not hard to do, just be careful. Cool

Poor college kid, eh? Sounds like you need a bunch of cobs!

I've got one, but really only use it when out mowing the lawn. I don't like how small the bowls are and haven't been able to find a cob with a decent sized bowl. I also see pipes as an investment. When I buy a nice briar I'm not buying something that will yield enjoyable smokes for a few months to a year, I'm buying something I can enjoy when I'm 60.

Try one of these ----- http://pipesandcigars.com/mimecogecoco.html

Fair sized bowl and smokes great. You can find them cheaper but .....

I have the same one and I love it! Semi-rusticated and all. It's my only one apart from the cob I picked up this afternoon to try Sam Gawith's Best Brown Flake in. I recently dropped mine and broke the stem, but a local tobacconist (Jim at Tobacco Cabana in Cedar Hill, TX; for those of you in North Texas) gave me a stem right out of a 20 year old Nording Freehand for next to nothing! It fit perfectly and smokes just the same. The bowl is huge! It takes easily an hour and a half fully stuffed. I've recently started using the "Frank Method" of packing it (there are videos on youtube of Frank demonstrating). It burns cooler and more evenly and it can cut the smoking time in half without having to pack a half bowl. I smoked Dunhill 965 for the first time in it today and it was a smokey, creamy dream (don't make that dirty). What tobacco do you smoke in yours?

Well, it's good to see someone else with a great pipe like mine. I'll try to put up a picture tomorrow to show how the grain has changed from the light natural color to that deep reddish brown. It's beautiful.

P.S. I also went to a private Christian school here in Dallas and there's lots a fun to be had without the alcohol and promiscuity, although a handle of whiskey smuggled in to my on-campus apartment made it a little more fun sometimes.

I smoke whatever I can get my hands on. As for the Christian school bit, I'm there by choice, not by force. I have no desire to fool around and get wasted (never have been drunk), so I don't mind it too much. It is still a bit too legalistic for my liking however.
