When I opened the box I was surprised at the size of the bowl which was all good for my large hands. I also like the carbon look and silver ring. Upon smoking this a number of times since new it is a perfect fit, smokes well, smokes cool (bowl) and excellent draw. I have many Churchwardens and this is in my top 5 rotation.
This is my second Molina (first was a Barasso Brilliant) and I am impressed with the quality/affordability ratio. which spells value to me. They don't scrimp on briar size or thickness - and this is no petite churchwarden. It's a large bowl. Wife loves finish - the image doesn't do it justice.
I also am impressed with the Brilliant finish of the Barasso. I have a good many Savinelli pipes as well as several Grabows. I see more Molinas in my future - nice pipes.
I have been solely shopping on this site for almost a year now. I will shop nowhere else. This is the 6th pipe I have bought through here, and this is the sixth pipe that has impressed me. I am partial to the Molina pipes. Quality and price point drive me. I also have a bent Dublin, and shortys which include the bent apple, dublin, anse, and rhodesian. A+++++++++
What a beautiful pipe! The "carbon" finish is exquisite. Bowl is more generous than other churchwardens to the point where it was a pleasant surprise. And, of course, the long stem makes for a cool, cool smoke. My wife says it may now be her favorite pipe from the more than 50 I own. She requested that I smoke Sutliffe "rum and maple" in it and that has proven to be a good pairing. Although the way this beauty smokes, I can't imagine it not being a good pairing with any tobacco, be it English, American, Virginia, burley or aromatic. IMHO it would be hard to find a better smoking pipe for the money anywhere. Highly recommended!!!
