    Bought this old weber from the antique mall Saturday.
    I should have my azz kicked for not taking photos before I started cleaning it up.
    It was pretty bad. The stem was green with oxidation, the bowl caked 2/3 of the way closed, and the rim covered in a thick layer of carbon.
    Once I get some supplies, I'll get it restored a little better, but for now I've got it reamed, cleaned and sterilized. I'm happy to report it is a good smoker, which I already suspected based on the cake.

    Did I mention this thing is HUGE? I used my OT apple in the photo to give you an idea of scale.
    The pipe is 7-1/2" long.
    The bowl is 1-3/4" square
    The stem is 3/4" diameter
    The tobacco chamber is 1-7/8" deep x 15/16 wide.

    It certainly isn't a clencher, as it weighs a ton, and I think you would need 2-1/2 hours to smoke a full bowl. But I thought it looked interesting.

    Carl Weber wrote a good pipe book or two back in the '60's. Rather knowledgeable fellow. Some of his info is dated but the basics are good.

    Nice looking pipe! I owned a Weber a few decades ago and it was a nice smoker. Yours looks nicer than mine!

    You wouldn't have said that if you could have seen it when I drug it home. I really wish I had thought to take a photo. It was pretty bad.

    Nice pipe. :ohyh:

    I had my eye on a big Weber pipe locally (at an antique store). If they weren't asking too much for it, I'd have snatched it up.
