INFO! Badger and Blade 2020 LE Pipe : Askwith Pipes

Glad to see pipes are starting to appear with a bit more regularity now.

For those wondering, yes I can still make extra stems but they wouldn't have the discount since the efficiencies of batch production are gone now. They aren't crazy expensive, but not cheap either.

I figured as much. I’m disappointed I didn’t just do it earlier. But I will probably have to in the future! This pipe is awesome. I’m very happy with it and your stem options are awesome. Thanks again for your excellent craftsmanship @caskwith and good job designing the pipe @Kentos

My pipe has finally arrived and I want to thank @caskwith for wrapping it so well. The box looked like it had been ran over by a tank several times followed up by being hit with a baseball bat. Fortunately the pipe had so much bubble wrap that number 29 showed up in perfect condition and it looks amazing.

I was tempted to get that stem color.

Wow that stem looks outstanding. Bold choice that really turned out...very nice.
 
I'll add a couple of things to Chris's "care and feeding of morta pipes". I'll echo his comment that morta can get hot quicker than briar--like surprisingly hot if you overdo it--but it also cools down much quicker than briar, so if this happens, don't keep puffing away. Just park the pipe for 5 minutes and it'll be nice and cool when you pick it back up.

Also, for whatever reason, a new morta pipe almost always tastes bad to me for the first couple of smokes. I don't know why and that's not a universal experience. But, it always goes away after a couple of smokes for me. So, if you get your new pipe and it tastes a bit off for the first couple of smokes, don't sweat it! I love my morta pipes, I love my Askwith pipes, I love my Askwith morta pipes, and I know this one is going to be awesome!
Think I understand your comment about how morta doesn’t taste good the first couple of smokes. I broke it in with 6 year old escudo and it wasn’t as good as it usually is. But on the positive side, everything else about the pipe was superb. I think it will end up being one of my favorite smokers.

My first couple smokes will be a non-Latakia that I have a lot of- probably MacBaren HH Burley Flake. Once you get past the first few bowls, mortas are very neutral smokers.
