    Summary:
    Perfect. Truly my favorite pipe to smoke. I hate that about it. I had to buy another one.

    Dedicated to Va's. Smokes them better, cooler, longer, drier, and more enormously than any pipe I own or have owned, at any price. Will not heat up. Fights going out. Capable of clubbing baby seals if necessary.

    Issue:
    It will reduce anything you put into it to this, after about 2 hours:

    And that's for real. I just smoked a bowl of 1776. At the very end I got a funny taste so figured I'd dump some ash- this is what I got. Nuff said.

    Well there is actually a second flaw.
    If I smoke this pipe while driving, I find myself completely free of the stresses and frustrations that other drivers generally seem to cause me. Almost like I'm coated in Teflon, which as we all know, is completely unhealthy.

    Just today I found myself thinking of the way the wind was gusting through different portions of a roadside tree, watching the leaves turn in and out of the light... Instead of being annoyed that I was stuck at a light, and sure to be stuck through the next one.

    Dangerous I say. Dangerous.

    I've got a BST, and I gotta say it smokes better than any other pipe I have. Dry, slow, and cool. There is only one blend I've tried in it that wasn't better in that pipe than in others, and I'm totally unsure of how to dedicate it though I've had it for a few months...it's just....everything is good in it :shead:

    Hey, you make light, but baby seals are no joke. You ever wandered down a dark alley and found yourself surrounded by 'em? Grim times.

    In other news, that is one freakin' gorgeous pipe.

    Don't you have a piece of driftwood or something around there that you were saving for Berg's bi-monthly order? You could send that to Spill and give a nice one to Berg for once. Berg'll never know the difference. Guy smokes cobs, for chrissakes.

    Someday I am going to get Squatch to make me a giant Zulu... someday! That is a beautiful Rhodesian, it's smooth lines and nice grain are tricky though; in reality, it's a dressed up incinerator! Nice pipe!

    Damn fine pipe. Damn fine indeed!

    So many custom makers and so little discretionary income... :(

    Nice,

    Iwas just noticing the other the night how my Sas seems to get up to temperature and then just hold there as well or better than any other pipe I own. I wonder what spells he casts over the briar to make them so magical

    That is some magnificent looking birdseye on the rim. If you are like me, you wouldn't trade your Sas pipe for a new Dunhill.

    Wait a second, you have two Sas'? I thought there was a shortage of 'em and you have two? Isn't that like hoarding?

    To quality for a second Sas, you must first get in league with the devil. Sas's pact with him only goes so far....
