    Clay pipes are my new found love.
    But their fragility makes taking them anywhere a risk.
    If only someone still made cases like these, so I could take my clay with me.

    Nice. :)

    I keep mine in wooden cigar boxes at home, and theoretically could travel with the shorter stemmed versions in a hard clamshell eyeglass case. Actual purpose built cases though are much cooler!

    Too bad they're not in higher demand; a cheap plastic, hinged model could sell for as little as $5.
