    First foray into pipes! Description from the Ruby-lane web site said this:- a briar pipe in the shape of a horse's head. It measures approximately 4 1/4" overall and is in excellent condition with no damage to either the briar or the stem. The bottom of the bowl is marked "IMPORTED BRIAR MADE IN ITALY"

    Whether it's any good will depend on the quality of the briar and how well it's put together inside, and I can't determine either of those things. So.... you better light it up and see what happens! Cool pipe though!

    I like carved pipes ! If you want another pipe consider a Kaywoodie . They're 25.00 and pretty damn good !

    TenorC, only YOU can tell us if it's any good. Smoke her up and see. You're the one smokin' her so you're the better judge. Regardless what the pipe looks like, if it smokes good, it smokes good!

    +1 on the Kaywoodie! Great pipes for a song.

    Enjoy!

    Hi All,

    Genuinely never seen one like that before - do let us know how it smokes; hope you enjoy it and all goes well for you,
