On my last vacation i was in Gatlinburg Tn. and i spent alot of time in the Gatlinburlier and picked up a churchwarden. Now i liked the warden but I settled on the pipe and it wasent the one i really wanted. But my father loved it and it matched a pipe he had perfectly so he has been after it all this time. So I told him if he came across a pipe i liked we could do a trade, well today he did and this new pipe I just feel for right away. http://i1186.photobucket.com/albums/z378/chambers11283/001.jpg Now it is a Gardesana pipe made in Italy and from what i have read online its a mid grade machine made pipe, the same people that make the H.I.S pipes and I have one and it smokes GREAT. So if anybody has one and would like to leave feedback on it feel free.
