Yes, exactly what I bought it for. Quickly smokes as well as something to enjoy overwhelmingly strong blends in. I really enjoyed the tambolaka I smoked out of it yesterday. Had I smoked that in a bigger bowl I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it so much. I plan on trying a lot of blends I didn't like the first time through in that pipe. Case in point, I bought a couple of ounces of OJK in the same order. I'm going to try that next. Thanks.
