Anyone try one? A bit on the cheap end, my shop stocks them, made in Italy.

    As long as they're briar which I'm sure they are if made in Italia. Should be good.

    No, I have not tried them but another blog site mentioned them when I was learning/reading about pipes. I think it is Fe.Ro the company started by Federico Rovera. They have limited availability in the US and if I recall correctly the discussion was split some like them and some had them split and crack. Here is the link to the main site for what it is worth: http://www.fero-usa.com/index.html

    You might try googling Fr.Ro to find the dicussion if you want as well.

    Gonna use this one for the Latakia blends for now. It's walnut, straight. I can tell a difference already in how well it smokes. image

    Congrats man! That looks like a nice pipe to start with. Looks solid from the pic. I hope it serves you well for many years!

    I've never used a non briar or meerschaum pipe. Keep us posted on how it smokes.
