Thank you Scottie. A couple of observations from someone who has never made a pipe and who only knows what he likes in a pipe:
A very generous bowl that allows for a nice, even burn. A nice white, even ash all the way through to the end with very little, if any dottle.
Opposed to the other pipes that I own, some of them Peterson's, Cayuga and Savinelli, your pipe requires very, very few re-lights and, even after stepping away for a few minutes, the bowl remains lit and ready to smoke. No other pipe that I have ever owned or smoked has behaved as such. Others here have aptly commented on the appearance and the feel in hand is perfectly balanced and very comfortable. Because I tend to hold the pipe in mouth for most of the smoke, I immediately places a bit protector on the pipe. Such a perfectly balanced and evenly smoking pipe with great draw.
Nothing but matches shall ever be used to light tobacco in this pipe (as with most of mine).
As an "end user" and not a pipe maker all I can say is this is a perfect design in my novice and humble opinion.
