The 8606 EX is a classical bent Billiard design that's been scaled up to extra large size, accentuating its graceful lines and balanced proportions. Like all pipes in this line, it's finished in an extra dark, rugged rustication and accented by a thin ring of bright nickel, keeping the focus on the shapes themselves.
Pipe Nook Notes
This is an unfiltered pipe. If you are looking for a first pipe or are fairly new to pipe smoking, I strongly recommend trying a 6mm or 9mm filtered pipe. If you're one of the many who battle the dreaded tongue-bite, filtered pipes help to alleviate this problem. You can always try smoking your filtered pipes without a filter in place, to see if unfiltered smoking irritates your tongue, and can purchase non-filtered pipes from there. If you already know that tongue-bite is not an issue for you, then never mind. :)
