    Im debating my 5th pipe purchase and Im a sucker for long stem with medium to large bowls (burn creamier, heavier, cooler). This one caught my eye.

    Anyone purchased this name brand? Pros, Cons?

    Great in a wind storm, for $29 your buying a novelty item. Nothing wrong with that.

    I got this estate last year, about $10.

    [attachment=346:3/5/0/509.attach]

    This one sold last week,unsmoked, for just over $30.

    The 'bullet' unscrews and works as a drain, so these are 'system' pipes and are made of briar.

    Good luck

    Man I really want one but alas... my car took my money this week =/

    Im hoping to unload some of these swords (functional dojo approved katanas) and get some cash for weed, pipe(s) and some immature toys I saw on Amazon.

    My wife says "The one with the most toys doesn't win" and I said "True, but the one with the most used up toys wins." And I have a good shoot at it. :(


    I guess that this type of pipe is meant to break down for packing so the parts are tethered together. Don't know if it's intended for everyday use. :puff:

    I probably wont use it everyday. I normally smoke my cobs during the week, just because I dont feel like cleaning my meer every night after smoking my cobs just do so much better for me at 8p at night.

    Updated, I picked one up today - locally beleive it or not. for $29.95.

    Also picked up 2 MM cobs (Pony Express bent tip and Ozark Mountain hardwood maple) and a 50g tin of SG Commonwealth.

    Must say - the Huntman is smaller then I thought.

    Ywp...they're little buggers. I had one similar to that a while back...never could get it to smoke dry. OK as a novelty pipe, but IMO not for serious smoking.

    Smoked a nice bowl of CBW in it, wonderful smoke that lasted longer then I thought it would. Cleaning it is a bit of a hassel.

    I smoke a little hotter then most. So it works very nice.

    Isn't the mouthpiece, um...freakin' huge? Looks like a Bari Sax in the photos.

    It takes some getting used to, but no its actually smaller then a regular bit.

    CBW smokes extremely nice in it. Comes apart nice for cleaning and is rather easy to hold. Draws nicely. I do fear messing the tip up, replacements dont appear to be available.
