    So I have almost a dozen estate pipes I've been getting on the cheap and fixing up, but I finally decided to break down and get a brand new pipe to call my own. I ended up with this beautiful Nording found at my local pipe shop:

    I've smoked it a couple of times to start breaking it in and I absolutely love it. I'm a sucker for bent stems and shapes like this.

    This is going to be a pipe for aromatics and so I'm smoking a blend called "Big Red" I got from my local pipe shop. It's got a slight nutty and cherry flavor without being crazy overpowering. I'm not exactly sure what the blend consists of, but it smells and smokes great so that's all I care about. :lolu:

    Best to all

    Nordings are good smoking pipes and usually a very good "bang for your buck." Nice looking piece.

    I concur. Nice grain, nice shape....and as someone who haunts estate buys, I can say my first new 'quality' purchase was, and is, my sentimental favourite. (Honestly though, isn't Big Red a cinnamon gum?) :lol:
