    This pipe was made by Adry Azad, of Azad Pipes . He posted this pipe on one of the forums, and I really liked it. It was hanging around for a while, and no one bought it as fast as I thought they would have, so I contacted him and ordered it.

    The guy is awesome to deal with, and is very cool. I chat with him quite often about pipe stuff, and other stuff. The pipe made the trip from Malaysia, to the US, to Afghanistan. The way he packed it ensured nothing would happen to it.

    I am simply in love with this pipe, and I'm glad I bought it. The weight is perfect, it fits my hand perfectly (even though I clench) and smokes great! I'm breaking it in 1/3 bowl at a time with Carter Hall which forms a cake nicely, I've found.

    The pipe is drilled flawlessly and I am so happy with this pipe that I might have him make me another one.

    **DISCLOSURE**- I am in no way affiliated with his business, other than being an ecstatic customer!

    So you ended up with that pipe. That is georgous, and I know his pipes are fine. I ended up with the poker he had for sale :)

    I debated between the poker and this one, but you made my decision easier when you bought the poker! :P

    I get to my desk (where the lighter usually is) at 630AM, and leave around 2AM, so you have a ~4 hour window :P
