The only "dedicated" pipe I have is the bent billiard I use for English/Balkan blends. Other than that, I don't smoke aromatics often so it's not much of an issue. I suppose I have dedicated my MM Diplomat as my "taming" pipe. If I have a blend that's a bit rough around the edges, such as G&H Brown Bogie, I stuff it in my Diplomat to knock those edges off and see what I've really got. Sometimes, as is the case in this instance, the difference is night and day.
