After 20+ years of smoking Dr. Grabow pipes, I have my first problem. Upon opening the pipe I found that the fit between the mouthpiece and bowl to be VERY TIGHT. About a month later the bowl split at the junction of the two pieces. I have temporarily fixed it with superglue but do not expect it to last. I will need to get another in the near future after only two months of use. I have always been VERY happy with DR. Grabow pipes!
My most desired pipe with filter.
Great smoking pipe. The filter distorts the tobacco flavor a little but absorbs the majority of the tar.
