I am considering get a Tsuge Cherrywood pipe, but I have heard bad things about non-briar pipes; albeit that cherrywood is the best substitute. It's a damn good looking pipe, but I am worried that I will be wasting money if this pipe burns out over time.
Any opinions on cherrywood here?
I believe that Tsuge “Cherrywood” is a shape, not the material. All of the ones I have seen are briar.
In any case, the pipes I have smoked that were made out of cherry (French Ropp made pipes) smoked great. During the break in period, they did have a bit more wood flavor than briar, but that wasn’t a bad thing at all to me. There is a pleasant natural faint sweetness to them. I would smoke them more often, but they are all a bit more crude and rustic in design than I like.
Oh wow it is briar, that's a confusing moniker. I do want to grab one of those Ropp cherrywoods but they seem to be hard to find.
