    I love Danish freehands more than any other style. But, I'm not so sure about this pipe. This is the first twin-bowl freehand I've ever seen.

    It has a certain unique/novelty characteristic thats sort of interesting.

    It also looks massive.

    I don't think it would be anything more that a paperweight for me. Too weird.

    Definitely not my cup of tea (or bowl of tobacco).

    You'd look as if you're smoking a bra

    I wonder if you smoked two different blends out of something like this if it would create a different experience then just mixing the blends together pre-smoke.

    For all those who complain about the wife not liking the smell of latakia, smoke a heavy aero out of one side and what ever you want out of the other.

    That pipe is an abomination against God and nature!!!!

    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.

    Eaglerico, no, no, no, you've got it all wrong. Pack each gigantic bowl up with 1792 Flake. The massive amount of wood will soak up a lot of heat, allowing you to huff away like a madman. The incredible rush of nicotine will cause you to leave your physical body, transcending time and space itself. You will wake the next morning in a pile of your own vomit a changed man!!!

    I've seen a few pipes like that. It would be cool to have one as a collectors item. It seems like it would be hard to clean since the draft hole goes in two seperate diretions.

    As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

    That's the first double holler I've ever seen. Sure don't want to smoke that while driving. Talk about an obstructed view...

    Just because something can be made, it does not necessarily follow that it should be made.

    Also, when someone describes something as being "unusual," you can usually count on it being a dog.

    Since you have to die anyway, you might as well die from something you like.

    I just can't help liking that pipe. Not enough to pay a ton for it but it looks too interesting.

    Hey why not. I doubt I'd pay much for it, but it could be interesting to try.

    Mauro Armellini is famous (infamous?) for their double bowled pipes.

    It sure looks like someone smoked it regularly, too.

    zanthal noticed the same thing I did about this pipe. Its been smoked! From the looks of it, there is a cake in the bowls. Anyone that has watched their own pipe slowly build a cake knows how long that takes, so this pipe must have been a regular smoke for someone. Novelty pipes are usually just that, either left unsmoked or rarely smoked, but this one was in someone's smoking line up for awhile.

    I have seen other manufacturers' twin bowl pipes and I've always wondered what that experience would be like. As mentioned, bold tasting blends or nic bombs wouldn't be as pleasant, but I imagine one could double the taste/smoke output of a subtle blend and really have something.

    I thought it was interesting and it has given me some thoughts on what I might smoke through a twin pipe. Has anyone smoked a twin bowl pipe? I'd be interested in hearing about it.

    Looks like you will need a replacement stem and the mortise area looks like it has been damaged.

    I have never even understood the double bowl concept, so a huge ugly one really escapes me.

    They say that there is always a buyer for any house, so I guess the same thing could be said for pipes.

    Um, no.
