Kwak beer glass stand as calabash pipe stand?
It doesn't look like it would work to me. Unless you were just hanging the pipe in it
As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper
Cigarettes are an addiction, cigars are a hobby, pipes are a religion
Not sure exactly what you mean by hanging it, but that's pretty much what I intended.
Here are some calabash pipe stands made for it:
See the similarity? Since I have no measurements of the beer glass holder I can't tell if the hole is large enough though. As I said I just fear it's too small to hold a calabash pipe.
Yeah, I think the neck support on that Kwak stand is not going to be nearly big enough. I haven't seen a Kwak glass for a while now, but I know that the neck of that glass isn't as big as the end of an average calabash pipe.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Not sure exactly what you mean by hanging it,
I meant hanging it from just under the bowl.
Thats what my calabash stand looks like, I would go for it, if its too smal just dremel it out a bit, problem solved.
@Uber, you do just hang the pipe from it lol, just like those pictures

A "Pauwel Kwak" beer-glass (or, more correctly a coachman's pint, and more incorrectly a "mini-yard" to many frats) is traditionally 3 inches diameter at the top and at the widest part of the bulb. From looking at the curvature, it seems that it tapers to 1/3 of the diameter at the top and bottom - ergo, 1 inch (or so).
These glasses were designed to allow a coachman the opportunity to partake in a pint while working...the wooden handle allows ease of transport by sweaty, working hands over the traditional ceramic or glass stein, while the shape of the glass help to keep the contents inside (and carbonated) on rough terrain.
If you're travelling through Belgium; I would definitely reccomend sampling some of the Pauwel Kwak ale - but be forewarned; if you want the "Kwak glass", the bartender will often demand a shoe as collateral, and at 8% it sneaks up!
