    This is an intriguing pipe but I can't quite figure out what's briar and what's hydrocarbon.

    Anyone seen/touched/smoked one of these?

    Definitely intriguing! How did you even find it?

    At 115 grams though, a bit heavy to be clenched. And at that price, a bit tooo much for my wallet!

    At that price you won't meet very many smokers who have seen/touched/smoked one of them. It is interesting though.

    Wow, very interesting. A whole lot of money for a heavy pipe that's probably a crap smoker, though.

    I found it when I went searching Google Images for pictures of architects with pipes. I didn't get the results I was looking for but it did turn up a publicity still of this pipe which gave me the name which got me the web address.

    As much as I enjoy seeing the design envelope pushed and stretched, if it doesn't smoke comfortably, it's just an exercise that didn't succeed. My design concern is that with that in your hand, it would be all too easy to mistake it for a gun. Other than those things, though, it's a nice looking piece of sculpture.

    Looks like someone revived "the pipe." Slightly higher price point though. ;)

    Look for something that looks like an upside down, techno version of a pipe along the bottom. small pic.

    I... well it's... I think it... that... :cfsd:

    I can't think of a single thing to say. They're nice pipes and all, but I just don't get them. Maybe overdesigned is the word I'm going for?

    George Jetson smoked this pipe.

    Another solution to a problem that didn't exist. Newsflash- pipe smokers aren't really a hip modern trendy crowd. They smoke pipes for chrissakes.

    An answer to a question that nobody asked. That's what I wanted to say. I think it was said on an old Simpson's episode.
