    Picked this little beauty up yesterday at the local B&M. It's a Caminetto Poker with a small moustache. And 100G of Bagpiper's Dream. I've only smoked each once. Love the pipe, I'll get back to you on the tobacco after a few more bowls. Interesting thing about this pipe is that it has a double bowl. The bowl is held in place by a cork ring and has a chamber underneath for gunk to collect. Kind of reminds me of the humidome in a Falcon (probably why I bought it). I haven't had much luck with briar pipes in the past, I still smoke too hot and fast, so this pipe is awesome for me!

    Here's one with the bowl out.

    It's similar to a Calabash so it will smoke cooler but does need to be cleaned so your smoking doesn't get rank, Caminetto (Ascorti and Radice were the makers) made excellent pipes!

    That is not only a good looking pipe, but functional as well. Congrats, great find.

    Is that a softy bit protector? You must be from upstate NY, too.

    Nice pipe!

    Yes it is, I'm from California. Years of bad dental care and impacted wisdom has left me with only 4 molars so my bite is off. Clenching a pipe without the bit locks my jaw... Plus they're just so much nicer when clenching and I don't have to worry about tooth chatter.

    Don't pay any attention to the peanut gallery, Smitty. Softees look distinguished.

    Huh. That's cool. I can't say that I've seen one of those before.

    I concur. They are comfy despite the detraction from aesthetics. And after all the time I spent sanding and buffing out chattermarks in the first place, I certainly don't want to have to buff them out again later.
