So a month or two ago, I caved into my PAD and went for something that I thought was a bit frivolous but decided to have anyway - a churchwarden. If I didn't, I knew I'd always be pining for one. So I had a look around various websites, but the problem was that I wanted one with a long stem and I couldn't really tell from any of the pictures on those sites as there was nothing to compare them to in the pics. Anyway, I finally opted for the Peterson D6 :- As soon as I took it out of the box, I was impressed. This one easily has a long enough stem. It also looks fantastic as the smooth finish is a real delight. Overall, a great looking pipe. Of course the real test was in the smoking. I wondered if it would be difficult to draw through or light, but I needn't have worried. This is my second Peterson and both are great smokers. One thing I will say is that I get gurgle with it at times, but I am admittedly a wet smoker. However, while it can be a little annoying it's never really affected the smoke. The smoke itself is perfectly cooled by the long stem. I've never experienced any bite at all since I've had it, no matter what toby I've been smoking. The biggest plus for me however is simply the comfort and aesthetic properties. I'm not really a clencher and so tend to hold all my pipes anyway. So having to hold the D6 isn't an issue for me (clenching is possible but hugely unpractical). Actually, I can more or less rest my hand on my lap and smoke without having to hold it up to my mouth. So my poor D5, previously my favourite, has barely been used since. I'm delighted that I made the decision to but this little beauty (albeit with a fair sizedbowl), and it will definately not be my last long stem, that's for sure. I'd recommend this to anyone.
