    A non-smoker friend knows I smoke and collect pipes so she got me an early Christmas Gift. 6.5"L, 1.5" bowl depth and 2.0" overall height. $4.25 + Free Shipping. I feel sorry for the vendor.







    Can't wait to smoke it when I finally get it in February/March next year.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” One of the reasons behind this statement is that pipe smoking is meant to be a slow leisurely activity. It takes patience to smoke a pipe. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, there is a certain amount of technique to smoking a pipe. Where cigars and cigarettes can just be picked up, lit and puffed on, pipes require the development of a technique in order to get the best smoking experience.

    I thought brillo pad and hollow radio antenna when I saw it a couple days ago. In other words, crack pipe. I guess it's the unknown and unfamiliar factor for me. I'm a traditional guy; billiard, Canadian, lovat, and so on, so seeing this thing made me think.

    Do I like it? No.
    Is it artsy? Yes.
    Do I like artsy things? Not really.
    Would I try it? Of course.
    Good gift? Not bad.
    Good price? Yes.
    Love for it? I love everyone and everything.

    Enjoy the new pipe! It's worth the $4.25 no matter what.

    I have a HS Studio pipe and rather like it. Not bad quality for the money and quite attractive. Yours seems to be a new shape to add to the shape chart. Table Lamp?
    Give us an update when you get it and try it out.

    Whoa I've seen those and think they look cool. And yeah less than $5. I'll take that all day long.

    I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

And here's another an unused one...He held up a small pipe with a wide flattened bowl, and handed it to Gimli. 'Does that settle the score between us', said Merry. 'Most noble hobbit, it leaves me deep in your debt."

    I almost pulled the trigger on one just like that a couple of weeks ago just because it was so different. Let us know how it smokes when you get it.

    @mothernature I think its based on chinese opium pipes.

    @clickklick I think of it as a chinese version of falcon system pipes lol. What I am concerned about is the moisture trap, I hope it has one or the stem is gonna suck that gunk in.

    Sometimes you have to hunt a little, but you can usually see something new every day.
    I like this concept! I can see a potential for carvers to do variations on this that could become popular within the community.
    The Pipe Monk, a system pipe, exactly! And, one that employs little or no metal parts.
