    im thinking about getting a falcon for my second pipe, youll have to let us know how she smokes, dondi.

    i love the look of falcons, but ive heard they can gurgle.

    That looks great. I've been turned off a few of the more ornate pipes that I've seen, but that one is right on the money.

    Congrats on your new Falcon! I only hear good things about them. I know a certain Scotsman that will be thrilled to hear you got one.

    Hi All,

    enter the Dreaded Scotsman!

    Dondi - that's a Bent Falcon, hope you've read and noted my cautionary tale! It should smoke great and no they don't gurgle! It might smoke hot for the first few times, but just take it easy and stick with at least a medium strength tobacco.

    I wish you many many happy years with the pipe Dondi, and with reasonable care it may even see you out - and it's ideally suited to a humid climate!

    Best to all

    Gerry

    Dondi! Whoa! That's one I haven't seen before! I am impressed! There is no doubt you enjoy the pipe - it looks great!

    I still havn't entered the dark side of flying a Falcon. Perhaps that will change.....keep us posted on how it smokes.... :groucho:

    Thanks for the compliments, friends!

    The pipe photo is off of the IRC website. I liked how the bowl color closely matched the stem color. I also liked how the rustic finish of the bowl complemented the swirls on the stem. And of course, I'm pretty sure it's gonna smoke well based on all I've read on the forum :bing:


    I've already ordered extra bowls from 4noggins!

    Keep us updated on how it smokes! I've noticed that many people love their falcons. Up until now, I have never even considered one but I think I will do some research- knowing me, before I know it I will have joined the club!

    It looks great too!
