    A very cool looking pipe, but way too rich for my blood. Think how many Falcons you could buy for that kind of money!

    Exactly my thoughts...

    Cool pipe. Hefty price. Too heavy for me at 65 g.

    I agree that with you, Ally.

    Hello,

    These metal pipes are produced by Tsuge for Drew Estate. There are three shapes.

    My local B&M has some and I laid hands on a few the other day. Meh. I'd buy one maybe for $50 just as a novelty, but NOT at this price point. I am not a believer that if something costs a lot of money it must be worth it. Now if you actually COULD make chicken stock in it...

    What a cool looking pipe, but a tad pricey for me.

    I dunno, after smoking mine for a while, I'd say it's a pretty good value for a limited run item. There's a lot going on in the design. I couldn't make one for the list price in labor hours, that's for sure.

    FWIW, the metal threading does not run down to the bottom of the bowl, as someone stated above. It only goes down a little ways into the bowl, just for the upper 1/4" or so. The lower 4/5 of the bowl interior is briar. I just fill mine to the edge of the metal threading and smoke down from there. The metal threading *does* get gunged up fast, though. Ideally, you'd want to have something like a Dremel wire brush attachment to clean it out with - Something soft that can quickly scrape out all the threading recesses. I've been cleaning mine this way.
