I'd try and smoke it when I had a free afternoon and a Buffett of food to keep me from getting the gitters.

Noteworthy indeed. By that I mean after buying it you will need a note to remind you to get the fireplace matches relights will require.

If it proves to be a lousy smoker you can certainly use it to cudgel someone to death.

That's just what I need for a nice month or so at home in my favorite comfy chair...just me and my new pipe, two or three tins of tobacco, an I.V. drip for fluids, a nice catheter and I'm set!

Anyone know how rare are the blocks of briar that would be big enough for such a beast?
No cutter would normally make anything like that. Boswell either knows a cutter or buys whole roots, it probably takes almost an entire root to make one of those.

Do the Boswells realize or not realize that there's a certain, um, niche market for their big pipes?

I have 3 Boswell pipes; I love them and they're great smokers. But whenever I see their pipes page containing something like this, I cringe. Obviously each carver makes their own choices, but this to me is nothing more than a show piece for someone with money to throw away.
