    Fe.Ro pipes are the shiznitz!

    Best I've smoked so far.
    They're kinda hard to find and their U.S. website screws up the order form.

    But, fortunately I have a local pipe shop that carries them. Not expensive and hand made in Italy but not really well known.

    Their specialty is a large bore to make "sipping".... VERY easy.

    I like em.

    I've seen the estates on eBay, but know nothing about them. Have any pics you can share?

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    Fe.ro is an italian brand created in 1949 by artisan Federico Rovera, the company is in the provence of varese north of Italy. (Pipedia source)

    Very difficul pipes to find in italian shops, apparently they only produce for overseas market, .. (source Ludwig)

    A bit ironic. Can you find Ardor pipes in Italy? I do see they are a bit more expensive...

    As luck would have it, I just got a head's up from Milan Tobacconists (fantastic people, BTW) that their Fe.Ro olive wood pipes are on sale: https://www.milantobacco.com/fero_olive_wood_pipes.htm

    If I had the cash to spare right now, I can see a couple on that page that I would be all over. I've never smoked an olive wood pipe and those appear to be a great value.

    I don't have the olive ones. I did see them on that website though.
    That website also has a list of retailers with locations.

    My local shop is on there.

    My 2 are briars. Rusticated as I prefer them.

    All I know is they are the easiest draw, driest, least heating bowl, good smoking pipes I own.

    Now if I can just resist not using the others AT ALL, I'll be good.
