    I recently developed a thing for cherrywood pipes and this has led to spending money on eBay again, oh well, here's the ones I managed to get:

    This one's a fairly common Ropp cherrywood, made in France

    Don't know much about the next one, Real Cherry, Made in Austria. It's pretty well smoked

    This one is cool! It's one big ole lump o' wood and unsmoked, underneath states: Real Cherry, Made in France, Whitecross. Probably not one for clenching

    I'm liking the idea of sitting in the garden smoking some of my favourite aro's out of these when the nice weather arrives :puffy:

    Does cherrywood smoke different than briar? Or is it an aesthetic thing?

    I like it, but I like the aromatic flavors also. After the cake builds, don't see much difference, though. Main reason I got into making Cherrywood was the abundance around here (and I can trade a finished pipe for about 6 monthes supply of wood!)[​IMG]
    Here's one of my Pokers, haven't noticed any heat build-up problems.

    I have an old Ropp. Yours are brand new compared to mine, dark black bark and the rim is scorched up pretty bad.
    Beautiful pipes....

    The Ropp is a great smoker and handy because I can put it down without it falling over, the big one is breaking in nicely with only a hint of cherrywood taste to the smoke.

    I went through a brief ROPP phase and I've got to say those are some fine examples. Enjoy them!
