You've done it. You've worn down my resolve.
I enjoy a cigar from time to time, and can't see any reason to not try a pipe. The question is, which one, and from where?
Ive read through the (awesome) threads in here on fixing up a used one. I feel pretty comfortable with having to do that. I was on eBay looking about, and saw some super cheap new pipes. Are these the equivalent of super cheap (terrible) razors? Shall I just ignore them?
Whats the difference between a new pipe and an old one?
What makes a pipe good, what makes a pipe bad?
Long stem makes the smoke cooler I assume? Anything else?
Any shops to check out in Sydney anyone knows?
