    New Pipe a real Bargain

    I bought a new pipe based solely on a recommendation by Kent @Kentos. It's a Morgan Bones. A nice pipe for only $45. I just had my first smoke with it and I really enjoyed it. They give you a good bang for your buck. Here is a picture of it. I would not hesitate to buy another.

    How do you feel about pipes with a filter system?

    I'm new to pipe smoking (well I quit once and now have come back) and I just bought a Savinelli pipe that uses a wooden filter system. I think it's great. I was just wondering what is the general feeling around here about pipes with filters? Like them, hate them, or don't care?

    I use to smoke a pipe many years ago but gave it up. Then a few years ago, partly because of this forum, I decided to try it again. For some reason it just didn't grab that time. So I quit again.
