    Information shouldn't be as hard to find as the pipe itself. There are only a handful of people still making them, and they have been quite scarce in the last few years. I found mine as an estate pipe online, and although it doesn't get smoked every day, I still think every pipe smoker should have one in their collection, they truly provide a cool-smoking, flavorful experience that is unique to them.

    I still don't own a calabash, but I know for sure it will be a Strambach. Very traditional company with great reputation.

    Wesley's (www.wesleys.co.za) tobacconist in RSA sell a lot of them, they do have an online store but I don't know if they ship internationally.
    They are a real class act and I would recommend them anytime, and with the current $ to R rates (its about R9.60 to one dollar)
    I see they are R600 without shipping so that comes to $63 and shipping shoudn't be more than $15.

    Calabash pipes are native to South Africa, I don't own one currently but it's on my PAD list. I've only ever heard one complaint about them, and that is that they need rest, as much or maybe even a little more than brair.

    PS: They have some history and info aswell.

    I had one, but I sold it. Now I'm thinking maybe I need to give them another go. I'll add it to the long-term PAD list, I guess :D
