A couple weeks ago I posted my latest resto: a Custombilt Stubby Bent Pot (here's the link): Custombilt Resto and I just wanted to do a follow up as this has become my new favorite smoker! I have dedicated it to straight Virginias for now, so that I can really explore its smoking properties, and man, I have experienced flavors in this pipe that I haven't before in my "mixed" pipes. The walls on this are almost 1/2" thick and I have yet to feel the bowl anything hotter than slightly warm. And for a pot shaped pipe, the tobacco chamber is still deep enough that I get a nice, long, smoke that really brings out the flavor of the tobacco. I have never really like the look of most Custombilts but I might have to get another to restore.
