Wow, that's strange. When I previewed my post they were all right side up. I'll see if I can change it later, right now I'm rather busy.

OK, the pics show up right side up on my ipad and upside down on my smart phone when viewing this thread. I tried to make another post of the pics after rotating them and they were upside down on both devices, so I deleted that post. I dunno, hold your computer whatever way necessary to see the photos I guess, I give up Laughing

Displaying your pipes on your ceiling. Nothing to be ashamed of.

You know, I'm not real keen on admitting this, but I really like smoking my only Falcon, recently purchased. The esthetics suck, and breaking in a new bowl wasn't very enjoyable, but this pipe now smokes great. Dare I say it? It's right up there with a good cob.  Any other Falcon newbies looking at their other pipes a bit askance? Know what I'm sayin'?

True! I have a few rusticated bowls, a couple hunter bowls and a meer. The meer is perfect, needed no break in (obviously) and smokes like a champ. The Hunter bowls had a bit of an off taste for a couple bowls but are settling in nicely and are good smokers. The rusticated bowls are dip stained like Peterson used to do. With multiple colors used, there's a lot of stain inside the chamber and god they taste awful. I immediately sanded down the walls to remove as much stain as I could, and they have been a bit of a chore to break in, taking several smokes to get past the taste. The ones I smoked enough are fine now, but what a chore.

Finally got my 1st Falcon to smoke today.

I had come to the conclusion that the seal of the briar bowl to the stem was passing air and thus was not able to draw properly. Got this as an estate, and if the bowl once had an o-ring it didn't when I got it. And not being experienced with Falcons WTF did I know?

Experimented with a couple different o-rings to seal the bowl to the stem and the thinnest one was the winner. Surprisingly, the thickest one created a situation of very restricted draw. I also tried out the draw with a dry ring and it also seemed to restrict the draw so removed it.

So, allus gut! Although I did get a slight gurgle from the 'baccy, but figure that's more of an issue with the moisture content than the pipe.

Looking forward to smoking the new Falcon POTY w/meer bowl and black anodized stem. Now in the capable hand of Ozzie for engraving.

Cool


Cheers,

RR

For some reason the Falcon/Viking is speaking to me I think I may have to get one here soon.
Other than a bolo tie what else do I need to look out for when purchasing one of these pipes?

Shop around for the parts. Sometimes the stem and the bowls come from different places. When you get the parts together, smoke it like you stole it! cheers
