    Anyone have experience with Corsica Giants? I just got one from eBay and the thing is huge. I wanted a big pipe, well I got one lol. It appears to be unsmoked so I smeared a little honey in the cavernous bowl and set it aside to dry and set. I'll try it out later this afternoon. I would be curious to hear what others have to say about them.

    I'll post a pic soon as I can figur out how to do it haha. I'm somewhat computer challenged lol. As a first bowl it'll have to be something I can handle about 3 hours of! That backy chamber is huge. Need a shovel to fill the darn thing :)

    Now smoking the Giant loaded with bulk Berry Cavendish. Draws very differently than any other pipe. Gurgles a bit but that will probably get better as it breaks in. Takes a ton of tobacco to fill it. All in all not a bad smoke. Time will tell.

    Did you start seasoning the pipe in by filling it 1/8, 1/4 and so on or did you just plunge in?

    Oh I just loaded her right up and plunged right in. Thats what I usually do with a new pipe. Only thing I did in the way of break in was smear a little honey in the bowl and let it dry a while and the fiiled it up.
