...tap into the PSF fount of knowledge. Most of my pipe smoking over the years has been confined to a couple, three beaters. They work well enough since I smoke sporadically and by the "seat of my pants". However there are two that were gifts that I've had for years and for some reason I always ended up looking at them and not smoking them. Guess I thought they were too "perty" The top one is stamped "Lorenzo La Moda" and has be previously smoked. The Kaywoodie looks clean, almost new but it has been lightly used. I am familiar with the Kaywoodie name not the wire decoration. So should I stop looking at them and smoke 'em? Any enlightenment on these two would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
