I've been waiting years for one Kaywoodie to cherish - thought it'd probably be a sweet old gourd calabash to replace my (also cherished, but) garden-variety Pioneer. So, out of the blue on ebay.... I am a big fan of sitting pipes like cherrywoods and pokers, I gravitate to fishtail bits and army mount pipes that dismantle and fit in a pocket and I definitely prefer the geometry of a taller chamber and a narrower bore. Smoked this puppy for the first time the other day and it is a pip. Not a teenie weenie Peterson barrel, this full-sized KW is 6.5" x 1 1/2" x 3/4" but still weighs a very clenchable 1.5 ounces. I don't know squat about Kaywoodies but when I saw this pipe I knew it was made for me. Hoping no cracks or secret creepy stuff appears but, right now, it smokes like a dream and I hope we have a long and smokey future together.
