    Hmmm...

    I have a Radice, kind of a flat bulldog. Nice, well made, smoked well. I know their shapes are on the fringe, but this is - unusual?

    It looks like someone stuck the stem in the bowl instead of the shank.

    Looks like he started to make his own pipe and gave up half way through. That's one impressive stem, though.

    That is wild. You've got to admire him for doing something that no one's ever seen before...

    What do you think--is that smokeable?

    Might be a little out of my league. I'd think it'd take one of the Coneheads to handle that.

    That pipe is defiantly in the same class as that chicken foot pipe from a few posts ago, for the strange pipe collector lol.

    Looks like a water pipe elbow with a stem in it. Some people buy these things just for the sake of being different, and they will love it. Not me.

    If the stem was flush it wouldnt be as strange looking . Nose warmers are just weird to me to begin with . I like the texture though .

    THIS. I love me some Radice pipes, but this one looks as if you can remove the stem and plug it in on either end. It'd look better though with a flush stem, and perhaps a smaller diameter for the shank.

    Has anyone else noticed that the picture looks 'off'? Like it's compressed or something. It's only 9cm (little over 3 1/2 inches?) so it would still be odd, though.
