New to me meer arrived today, by way of Bollito. It’s not marked so no idea who made it. Must be fairly recently made though, it has a chamfered delrin tenon and a delrin sleeve in the mortise. Draw is a little tight but perfectly workable. The draft through the stem is a straight shot with no step downs so the draw is a function of the diameter rather than any kind of obstruction or pinch point at the slot.

yes, if anyone wondered who it was, it was me, today arrived this magnificent JT Cooke that I bought to @Tallpuffoburley the pipe is impressive, despite its large size, I was surprised how well it fits and hold it in the mouth, no doubt it is perfectly balanced.The brush passes perfectly and the drill is perfect, this has to be a great smoker, I'm going to try to leave the ring flawless so it shows a little more...but only a little because it already looks great. ...today is Champions night, I think it's a good time for "breaking" it for my part. The mouthpiece is a beautiful "wine" color and the pipe is impeccably cared for.

No. I`ve never smoked the old one.

p.s. I do not like to compare blends, but sometimes I prefer a blend over others.
I know several people who are thinking about ordering it, but they are reluctant because they don't want to spend a ton of money for something that might not be the same as the original was. If anyone else gets the new stuff, and is familiar with the old, the information would be desirable to many (not me, because it's too expensive).
