Very nifty pipe, Goose!

This bent billiard by Pietenpauw has become my favourite pipe. Jean says the the hardekool wood is dense and prevents ghosting due to it not being as porous as briar and I have found this to be true as I have smoked aromatics from it and then wiped it out and smoked vintage syrian or marlin flake with out a hint of the prior flavoring. To him this is a workhorse pipe and not a shiny show pipe. In fact one of the drawbacks to this wood is that it can't take a high polish and smooth finish like briar. That said he compared the finish he does get to his grandfather's pipes that were forgotten in a drawer for years with that well worn sheen. My pipe has that presence of a pipe that has been around for 100 years and yet feels like it will be good to go for the next 100 too. It is just so darn honest and comfortable I reach for it every time and have to stop myself so I will smoke the others.

Anyway, here is a link to what Jean wrote regarding hardekool wood pipes if you are interested to read more.
