    Just watched part of this movie but spotted a new type of Lord of the Rings pipe
    In the begining of the movie the carector named Thoren has a strange pipe..It has about an 8 inch stem of wood and a large bowl that lookes carved from a tree branch left in a bog ..nasty looking thing
    Looked as if he was smoking a flake tobacco that would have made a meal
    Wonder when the pipe makers will bring this one out
    I want one !

    Just had a quick check and you're spot on. A canny if queer looking thing. Looks like I'm joining the queue for one right behind you.

    Got to say, the bowl on it is massive. You'd need the hands of a giant to get your paws round it.

    For $125, it should be smokable. :p:

    The pipe in the sceen does not look like the prop..perhaps that was later in the movie..the closest thing I have seen to it is a Ropp that looked made from a tree branch

    I have seen that pipe offered somewhere on the net and the one I saw was functional.

    I'm going to say here as I already have in two other threads, I bought a cobwarden from DGE that is amazing and looks just like something you would find in any LOTR movie. Plus you'll be able to smoke the heck out of it and enjoy it.

    AND a whole heck of a lot cheaper!

    Yeah, I like how there's almost a metal filigree around the dwarf's pipes to show their connection to mining and the earth.Gimli's pipe in the LOTR trilogy was much simpler and just made out of wood.

    be wary of this site, I haven't had great luck in the past. they have very poor reviews online and I was told that my order of a Wizard in briar about a year ago would have taken 12-18 months to craft and deliver. while I don't disrespect the time and effort it takes to craft a pipe, I wasn't willing to let my money sit in purgatory for that long before having a product to use. unfortunately had to cancel the order
