    Yup. My Starfire is my favorite pipe (I'm up to 10). My Starfire is the bottom one (earlier picture of my collection).

    Nice Basil. I almost didn't buy mine (got it at a flea market), because at the time...I wasn't a fan of the rusticated look.

    Got my new (second) Starfire this evening. It's...uh...small. Probably 1/3-1/4 the bowl size of the bottom one. It should be good for about a five minute smoke, lol. It's a good looking pipe though.

    Yup. It's a nice little pipe. I got a Duke as well. That one was about the same size as this one. I like my Grabow's too. Today's two additions make five. The other three are great smokers...I have no doubt that these two will be as well.
