The Brebia Oom Paul is a beautifully crafted pipe based on the Hungarian style pipe. It smokes incredibly well, dry, and because of the great amount of wood and sandblasting, it is very cool smoking. The carved wooden wind cap fits tightly and elegantly serves the purpose it is meant to. While I was initially . little disappointed by the use of a filter, it seems helpful and because it is the same material as the stem the filter doesn't get wet and sloppy or create heat like regular filters. I am very happy with this beautifully made pipe. I would recommend it any smoker looking for a classic smoker.
