I never had a freehand style before because they're just too big. [ for my tastes ] but the Grabow Freehand though having a good-sized bowl is smaller and lighter than most. Smokes great, very happy with it. As always, a fine experience dealing with Tobacco Pipes, Thanks, Guys!
Too much taper at the bottom gets too hot. I like the size.
The pipe came well packaged, still breaking it in, now here is the but. Since the bowl is tapered at the bottom, it gets extremely hot as you smoke it down. Now this may be due to not having a cake build up yet on it which will insulate it. May get better as time goes on. Time will tell.
Not disappointed in the purchase, just hope time will improve
the smoke which I think it will.
I also own a the Savoy by Dr Grabow, and that has proven to be a very excellent pipe!!!
while Dr. Grabow pipes are not considered high end pipes, they are made very nicely. These are hands down one of my favorite line of pipes. They are nice priced and smoke great. the freehand is a very nice pipe and has a nice sized bowl that will will last about 45 minutes to a hour. everyone should have a Dr. grabow in there collection.
