I just froze my hands having a quick smoke of some MB London Burley in my Amphora Xtra 814. I gotta say, this thing was one of my best antique shop finds though it hasn't seen a lot of use because the bowl is so small. For a day like today with temps in the 20's, that small bowl comes in handy. Just enough to satisfy my craving and look good doing it! Hah, not the prettiest pipe actually...it kind of looks like a walnut with a genetic disorder.
