So I've been smoking pretty much nothing but cobs for the last two years. I have a few briars, but I don't smoke them quite as much. Got a hair up my ass about two weeks ago and bought two Grabows, an Omega, and Freehand. The Omega is a god send. Flat out quickly become one of my best and favorite pipes. The Freehand is also a great smoke except for one problem, it smokes insanely hot. Not the smoke, the smoke is nice and cool all through the bowl, but it's the outside. The second I light it up, it's pretty warm, and after just a few minutes it is too hot to hold by anything but the shank. I'm sure it is not me, as I have never had this problem before with any pipe I've had, and the Omega stays so cool, I dip it in my tea to keep the ice from melting. At first I thought it was that it was a new pipe and just needed a little break in, But it's been over a week now, and the pipe hasn't begun to cool down. So my question is, is this common for the Grabow Freehand, or is there something I can do different?
