    Does anyone here own anything from the Nording Signature line??
    Very beautiful pipe. I have been eyeing them online, as I have a birthday coming up, and have told the wife. (she said okay)
    I picked up one at the tinderbox here in Memphis, and it felt great in my hand.
    I felt that "connection"
    Im just waiting for the funds now, but anyone have one??
    Good experiences?
    Bad Experiences?
    Im kinda screwed on this, Now I have PAD.
    Before I smoked pipes I had/still have GAS - Guitar Acquisition Syndrome
    I dunno what my poor wife is gonna do with me.
    Thanks for the help guys.

    The rap on Nordings is that they smoke well and are well built pipes, but the finish level on a lot of them is not real high. If you see one you like, it's a low-risk purchase in terms of smoking qualities.

    Never owned a Nording, but the B&M in Phoenix
    had lots when I lived there. Nice pipes, but
    none that called to me. Besides, I, like you,
    had GAS for the longest time. Now GAS has
    been replaced with TAD/PAD. Helps that I've
    found and bought 3 of the same guitar I'll
    die with.

    I just ordered a Nording billiard and was looking at the signature freehand also since it looks cool for only $60, I think its next on my list. I wound up mainly looking at Nordings for my first briar pipe thats a step above my all my 4 $20-$30 kaywoodies and basket pipe briars because I've never seen anyone online say anything but good things about all his pipes as far as as moking goes. I like how they all have a great price, and how the rustication and designs give them a rugged look.

    I've got a Nording Signature Straight Billiard. Like Sasquatch said the finish is not perfect. Mine has a couple of flaws but it smokes very well. I paid $50 for mine...Worth the $$ if you want a good smoker.
