    My first post! I'm "new" to pipe-smoking in the last few months after stumbling upon my forgotten 35-year-old pipes only to fall in love with the briar all over again. Just bought a Sasieni One Dot at an antique store (for the princely sum of $12) and I'm trying to learn more about it. From what I've found so far in surfing the interwebs, the markings suggest that this gem was made no later than 1924. The pipe has obviously been restored somewhere along the way because the bowl is free of any cake, even though I can tell from a couple minor nicks and what-nots that it has been well used. Is it advisable to smoke such an old pipe? While I'd hate for it to crack or otherwise be ruined, I can't stand the thought of just displaying it as chotchky (although that would be pretty cool too). Any advice for me?

    Smoke that baby!!!!!! I have pipes from the 20's and 30's that regularly get filled up and smoked. Cograts on the great deal. Post some pics if you can!

    Welcome to PSF, ask any questions you may have.

    Thanks for the advice and for the warm welcome! I'll light it up and post some pics of the pipe once one of my kids shows me how (said the Luddite).

    @Zem, Last month I found a Sasieni Four Dot (50's-60's) at a cigar shop in a dust crusted "catacomb" of a pipe cabinet by its lonesome and paid $40 for it. I sent it off to be restored by a pro as it was in rough shape and I can't WAIT to get it back.

    I can't even imagine having one from the 20's! I would have it restored to its former glory and take a trip back in time and enjoy the sh*t out of it! My guess is it will provide you with many years of enjoyment. Got any pics?

    My absolute favorite flake pipe is a century-plus WDC I found for sale unsmoked. Darn right I fired it up! I might think twice if you'd paid $12,000 for an original Mr. Sasieni pipe #1 autographed model. Smoke away, Zems. Smoke away.

    Definitely smoke it now and welcome aboard. One of my favorite pipes is an 1932 Dunhill apple that I brought back from the brink of doom. It had so much cake that you could barely see the bottom of the bowl, but once I cleaned it up, pure bliss. Sasieni is a classic and it should smoke very well.
