    Well hello there, my name is Victor and I'm currently searching for a similar pipe that Gandalf has in The Lord of the Rings.
    I guess this is being asked quite much but I seem to find only Churchwardens with plastic.
    I'm searching for a long one, around 13-14", fully wooden.
    Any hints on an online store that has the possibility to transfer to Sweden?

    Thanks in advance!

    You probably wan't something like a MacQueen, but I would suggest finding a vendor that has it in stock and not ordering directly from them...unless you want to wait a LONG time.

    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.

    Yeah MacQueen was my first choice, but just checked it up and it has a production time on 10-12 weeks.

    Pipesandcigars.com carries the macqueen pipes. I would advise some research before buying one though. I too really wanted something tolkien-esque. The reviews I read on these pipes said that not only do they tend to get extremely hot, but they have a tendency to gurgle as well. Having never smoked one myself I cannot testify personally. Mr. Brog makes some pretty good sized church wardens that are relatively inexpensive, and while not exactly what you saw in the movies, might be a good start.

    There are also some clay pipe makers out there, though the vibe is more American Revolution than Lord of the Rings.

    That second link looks like a cool pipe (I bet it'd smoke better than the Mac) but it does have a vulcanite stem (black hard rubber) You mentioned you wanted a completely wooden pipe, so just making sure you realize.

    For smoking and cleaning purposes I bet a removable vulcanite stem would be way better.

    For the look... it's your call

    OH,you might or might not have seen THESE (Savinelli Quandale)

    Kind of Gandalf-esque, and the stem is kind of a swirled color, instead of straight black. These would smoke well, no doubt.

    Edit: some have the swirl and some look like a standard black acrylic stem ... each pipe is different, so take a look if you like the style

    What ever you get I would suggest ordering a couple bundles of Church Warden pipes cleaners at the same time. I am sure who ever you order it from should have some variant of pipe cleaners in the link below.
