    Haha. I do know what you mean, I have a couple of Savinelliís with conical chambers. One of them smokes Exotique like nobodies business! I actually tried to make that pipe my St. Bruno pipe but I ended up liking how it smoked English blends better. I love St. Bruno in a tall, narrow pipe for whatever reason... maybe itís a subconscious thing cause Iím always seeing Simon smoking his Bruno in those tall chambers.

    Nothing wrong with your smoking technique. Danish pipesmoking's Grand Old Man, Paul C. Olrik wrote the same about conical chambers; that they were prone to bottom moisture and they were more difficult to smoke all the way down.
    That said, I have several pipes with conical chambers and I have yet to get in trouble.
