    I will not try this until after New Years when I get back home from my trip.

    Nice. I like spigot mounts. Going away for a week or so and taking this with me to break in (though mine is a group 2):

    Dunhill. Nice. I hope to land a nice Dunhill some day.

    These videos were a lot of fun to watch. I like the end of the second video when he says "So it will burn very very slowly...and might even last... until you catch a fish."

    Buy used. Much cheaper and as good and often better. That is the only new Dunhill I have bought - I got it at a "trunk" show at a local shop and only bought new because it is a finish and shape that I have always wanted and is very hard to find. I may yet buy a new Country finish Prince, too.

    In lieu of a couple vintage bottles of vino one could be procured, no? And look, we all know you're a ballin-ass son of a bitch.

    Also, don't use the filters. They don't really work and often just fuck up the smoke.

    Okay, so I tried the new Savi last night, Peterson's holiday blend. First smoke with something other than the traditional fan/fisheye opening. Smoked very cool and dry. Edina, I did have the little piece of balsa in. It's not like what I thought a "filter" would be, just a little stick of balsa. I guess it helps absorb moisture and cools the smoke. Whether it was helped by the balsa or not, the draw is very cool. However, as this bowl has much thinner walls than my Peterson, the bowl itself felt much hotter.

    A couple of questions for the pipesters here: smoker's tool. I just have the usual $1.50 one. Does anyone have a nicer one, whether a complete tool or just a nice tamper? Also, what is a Czech tool? Does it differ from a good old reamer (no homo)?

    Yes. A really nice tamper and reamer. Paid a pretty penny for it to. It just looks a lot better than the $1.50 one. You only need tamper and reamer. Czech tool is just a 3-in-one type of tool.

    It is impossible to come up with a reason why a fancy tamper/pick is functionally better than a simple 3-in1 Czech tool. They all work exactly the same. Nicer ones are just nicer. I like the Sheffield made combo tools, which are like little pocket knives and have two, one in black and one in steel like this:
    [​IMG]. Here is a link.
    I also have three Czech tools and a couple of pipe nails (basically a metal tamper that tapers to a pick and cost about $1). That way I don't have to look to hard to find one. The Sheffield ones are as nice as I care to go, but some people like the fancy Dunhill or Savinelli ones or more crafty artisan made ones.
