    Having some trouble ID'ing the pipe I just bought. The description said Armellini, but according to this website... http://www.pipephil.eu/logos/en/index-en.html It is not.

    Only been in the pipe game for about 6 months now so I'm still not familiar with logos and makers. Any help?

    I'm no artist, but here is a drawing since it's hard to see on the pipe...

    It says Italy right below the logo.

    Thanks!!

    Indeed, I never saw these markings
    :-(
    Is there any logo on the stem?

    Oh well, thanks for the look.

    It's a nice looking pipe. Hopefully it will be a nice smoker as well!!

    Had my first smoke in it with Carter Hall (which is the first time I;ve smoked Carter Hall).

    It smokes different than a cob that's for sure.

    + I like the being low that I can see in to it
    + feels great in my hand
    + bowl stays nice and cool
    + draws nice
    + Easy to see in to the bowl and relight

    - Took a few relights, but it may be because I am not used the larger bowl
    - Got a couple of gurgles during the smoke, never experienced this before with a cob. But it was weird because it would only gurgle once or twice during a puff and then not do it for five minutes or so....For all I know this may be normal with a briar....
    - tight fit with the pipe cleaner down the bit.

    All in all I'm extremely satisfied. It may not be pretty or fancy, but I love the shape, I like the feel, and I'm not afraid to bash it around just a bit. Going to be a loyal friend!!

    Sounds good! Running a pipe cleaner a little ways down the bit mid-smoke will usually sort (temporarily at least) any gurgle problems. It also helps to dry things up and keep your tongue happy if it's starting to smoke a little bitey. Loading a briar is like driving a stick-shift: the principles are the same, but every individual one is a little different and takes a bit of getting used to at first.
