I have been admiring this Sasieni 4 Dot Ruff Root bulldog for a while now: http://www.mkelaw-pipes.com/html/pipee1693.html In the 5th photo, which is of the stamping, "FRANCE" appears on the stem. So just checking with you Sasieni-savvy pipesmokers, this is a newer Sasieni, am I correct? What are the chances of it smoking well? I love the way it looks, but I haven't heard much positive (haven't heard much at all) about the newer Sasieni's which were made in France, apparently? Thanks for your knowledge!
