    Just thought I'd show off my new Mario Grande (new to me anyway) I bought on Ebay. In the first picture, I compared it to my Nording Signature, so that you could get a better idea of the size. It's a lot smaller than the "no comment" variety, though the bowl is almost as deep as the Nording. I think it's a great looking pipe.

    Just smoked it for the first time - breaking it in. I smoked 4noggins Double Fantasy in it. Great first smoke. Very cool smoke - it brought out the tobacco flavor better than ever before. Very pleased. [​IMG]

    It's a beauty, appears unsmoked.

    It appeared unsmoked; if it had been, it was once or twice. I could smell a slight tobacco scent in the bowl.

    Very nice! Not the best view of the ring blast (?) but it looks quite good from what I can tell.

    I have admired Mario Grandi's shapes and accents for a long time, that is a beautiful pipe. I have to admit that not all of them pique my interest, some are rather odd, but there are a lot that I really do like. I bet it will be a great smoker. Enjoy!
