    was in search of a smaller flake pipe specifically for dunhill flake, smoked 2 bowls so far the first bowl was yet another hot smoke i had to put down, the second one was better after i had put it down for a few hours and relight expecting it to taste sour but was quite surprised to find it smoking cooler and flavorful. Im hoping with a few more bowls i cant get the rich sweetness of the flake to come through, hopefully this pipe is "moo approved" for the dunny flake as we had discussed in another thread the troubles i was having with this blend.

    this one's a stanwell featherweight 243

    Beautiful Stanwell, Ryan. My experience has been, most new pipes tend to smoke a little warm, for the first dozen, or so, bowls.

    I love Stanwell. There is a few people that give them a bad rap. I have wanted the Stanwell Naval series pipes for a long time now.
