Absolutely! I like the looks of many of the carved pipes, but I just can't see them as smoking tools! And I love the feel of the smooth bowls in my hand :)

I do like the classic shapes, I think the lattice is nice too, but that's as fancy as I like. I would feel strange smoking a pipe with someones head carved on it.

Exactly my thinking! FWIW, I have my Grandad's old (1917) Hawkbill smooth meer, my new Altinok smooth, and a 2 year old Lattice (of not great quality but an ok smoker).

Nice. Even came with a little certificate with my name on it. :)



... and in case anyone is curious, that's a box of Cuaba Tadicionales underneith. Both came in the mail today. :)
Beautiful! It's your first but I have a feeling it won't be your last.

I have both...classic and intricately carved. I enjoy the way they smoke, and I can indulge myself with either a simple bulldog or billiard, or with a fancy claw or other figural, depending on my mood at the time.
