Chicago Pipe #2 - Wolfgang Becker

When we got to our room after checking in at Pheasant Run, we stepped out onto the balcony overlooking the pond. To our left was Wolfgang and Gitta Becker, doing the same. We immediately went to their room and knocked (even though there was a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door). Wolfgang was kind enough to show me the pipes he had brought (minus several that had sold on Wednesday!). I picked out this pipe, which to me is a beauty. I love the shallow blast and the plateau bottom (can there be a plateau bottom?). I have smoked it a lot since the show and I am extremely pleased with it. My only complaint is that I wish the bowl were twice as big so I could smoke it twice as long - not that it's a small bowl. I just like smoking it. -T
