    Any ideas in regards to a wide-chambered / shallow-bowled, affordable pipe?

    I'm looking for a fuller, richer experience, that is shorter in duration.

    Look for a "basket" pipe at your local B&M with a shape that appeals to you.

    Affordability is, of course, subjective. What kind of price range? Might want to check out some Savinelli pipes. I just ordered a prince shape with a 1.25" deep and a .85" wide chamber for 65 bucks at smokingpipes.com. Rusticated bowls usually are cheaper than a given line's smooth counterparts, also.

    I would second the Savinelli recommendation - they have a number of wider shallow shapes, pots and dublins, that can be had from 50 to 80 bucks.

    I'm thinking $50>.

    I've seen those, Ruff. They look great, huh? Although it's not what I'm looking for, I love the Lovat's.

    Ruff, those St. Claudes look pretty nice. I really want to buy one of those foursquares. Don't think the wife will go for it, though.

    As to a "wide shallow" shape, look to the pot and prince. These two come closest to filling your needs IMO. Luck with your quest!
