Does anyone here smoke a pipe made out of pear root. How do you like them, and do they stand up well. I have no experience with them but I do see them advertised.

From what i have heard its near impossible to build any cake in them thus they tend to burn on the hot side.

The pear root pipes are usually the ones on ebay that are made in the Ukraine. They generally have a dragon etc carved on them. I also read in a pipe book that pear root was used as well as briar, but obviously briar is the better choice.

Yeah, I saw these too. They have a lot of different styles and the price is cheap. I may get one just to test it out. I have heard bad things about the Chinese pipes, but nothing about the quality (other than the above) of the Ukraine pipes. I can't post a link but there is a Ebay shop called "Fine Ukraine". They have some briar too.

Why waste your money finding out? If it was any good, reputable companies would've been using it all along.

Nothing smokes as well as a Missouri Meerschaum cob for the dollar, and nothing looks as handsome and smokes as well as briar or meerschaum for quality.
