    Between that and Erinmore your bomb was the best thing that happened to me since I started, probably - those are two of my new favorites.

    Robert, I'm amazed that you can actually find such things. I guess that's because my first (and only) clay pipe lost at least half it's length just on the way home from the tobacconists. I'm impressed that one can actually remain in one piece for over a week!

    I've got one pipe that's similar to the Lepeltiers. Double-skinned glazed ceramnic. The Dutch have been making this type of pipe for many, many years. The one I've got is a made by "Old Mokum". Maybe that's a brand name for Zenith. I don't know too much about these pipes; it was a random buy for, I think, the grand total of 1 Euro. Not a bad smoker at all - very dry as the moisture condenses in the second skin.
    My Lepeltier has a tight draw too. I've toyed with getting a screen or something for the bottom of the bowl because it seems like the draw hole always gets clogged. Drives me nuts because it's one of my favorite pipes. Personally, I find that mine smokes very cool. Both to the touch and the temp. of the smoke. The bowl gets slightly warm but not uncomfortably so. I could well imagine smoking this pipe on a cool winter afternoon and using the bowl to warm my hands.

    The central hole is a pain; it constantly blocks.

    The Old Mokum smokes reaonably cooly; I was refering to a "regular" clay when saying they tend to smoke hot. I hold mine by the stem; I've no idea what the correct etiquette is for clays. The bowl and stem near the bowl get too hot to comfortably hold and you can't hold them with your teeth without getting bits of clay in your gob.

    These Jacob pipes were made by Gambier alone in their tens of thousands and there were several imitators making similar shapes and quality. It's not that surprising that they do turn up quite regularly. The common models (and I think this is one of them) should go for 10-20 Euro on the continent, usually at the top end of that in the in the UK. That's for a bowl only. This one has its stem and bit and wasn't that much...

    Let's see how long it lasts in my hands. I'm an infamous pipe juggler. One successful smoke down so far...

    Yup - I remember now. Guilty of a noob mistake. Still, no complaints - the reviews for this tobacco are stellar. Can't wait to put some in the meer!
