    Hey, I got this pipe a few weeks ago, the brand name is Baronite and I believe they were made in Holland. I am trying to figure out what material it is. It feels kind of like ceramic or glass. Anyone have any knowledge of them?

    You'll need to upload your image to somewhere to host it online (photobucket, flikr, etc.), create a post, click on insert/edit image (the litle tree icon) and paste the url in the box that comes up for a picture to show up in a thread.

    Good luck!

    You were close. Just take the image's file location (you had that right) and paste it into the "Insert/edit image" dialgog box while you're writing a post. Any more problems, please pm me.

    Nice looking Baronite pipe. Folks say you can break a bowl by pushing a pipecleaner too hard into a bowl. I gather the wire pokes into the clay opposite the airhole and breaks up the clay. Caution on that. I think your dutch pipe is double-walled, similar to Le Peltier clays (http://www.lepeltier-pipes.com/).

    I finally found a Baronite pipe at an antique store. Unsmoked, 13 dollars. The meershaum (upper picture) has been lightly smoked (it came with the bag, I'm unsure if the bag belongs with that pipe...) Moo is right, the Baronite is just like the Le Peltier clays, it's slip cast ceramic (much better execution than my double walled clays), double walled and glazed on the outside. I thought maybe the Baronite pipes were some kind of special material, but it seems like a standard ceramic to me. Nice looking. Total for both pipes was 28$. I Think they wanted to move the Meershaum because I said the price (35$) out loud with some hesitation, and they cut it half to 15. -David

    Here is the photo. The stinger doubles as a punch biopsy, a tool to perform tracheotomies, and removing the stems from strawberries. It's the Swiss Army Knife of clay pipes:) -David

    I have been curious about how that looked...thanks.

    BTW, a real trach is done with a bendy straw with your thumb covering an end. Now you know. :)
