I have been meaning to share my purchase of this pipe for a while but just haven’t found the time. Well, maybe today I can rectify that!
I’ve had this churchwarden for well over a year now; it’s the only one I own. While I don’t smoke it often, I do find it to be a really good pipe that was well worth the investment. Like all churchwardens, it smokes cool and dry but you do have to pay attention to your cadence; the long shank/stem makes one forget how much they are puffing and can get the bowl pretty hot.
The color is magnificent, in my opinion. I’ve had other “mahogany” pipes from Mr. Brog that looked more purple but this is is a nice, dark red color as it should be.
If you’re thinking about a churchwarden – be it your first or twenty-first – I don’t think you can go wrong with this pipe. And if you’re not a fan of the color it does come in a few different stains and slightly different options as well.
