I have twenty pipes, and this basic hardwood poker is one of my workhorses I go to every evening. Just finished a very enjoyable bowl of Black House mixture. However, a confession; I switched out the long stem for the shorter stem from my tree bark pipe. And I like the tree bark with the long stem. Don't excommunicate me.
The pipe is just stellar just like the other pipes from this site, I'm thinking about trying the granite one next. My only gripe is that the shipping was a couple days late but that's cool, I'm patient.
