A tale of two pipes

I recently ordered two very different pipes from our friends at Pipes and Cigars. One was a “Fantasy Freehand Natural” http://www.pipesandcigars.com/pipes/87088/fantasy-freehand-natural/ and one a Stanwell Brushed Brown 243 http://www.pipesandcigars.com/pipes/83390/stanwell-brushed-brown-pipes/ I like them both, even if they are so different. The freehand is a much larger pipe as evidenced by these photos, and takes an 9mm filter (which I tend to avoid) or an adapter (which I tend to use). Also as evidenced by the photos, the bores are almost identical. I’ve smoked the Stanwell, and it’s a very nice smoke as Stanwells tend to be. As it has thinner walls, one does want to smoke slowly and not in a brisk breeze.
