I bought this pipe out of impulse, sort of. I've been smoking my bent briar way too much and want to start getting a rotation going. Went into a pretty nice pipe shop in Rome just to 'snoop around' and ended up making a purchase. Haven't smoked it yet. Bought some Borkum Riff "Original" per the recommendation of the guy who sold it to me. I'm very new to pipe smoking, but very proud of this purchase. What do you think?
