I would smoke it too. I would not pay retail for the privilege however.

Not only is it expensive, it's ugly and not in a good way.

I was hoping you'd buy it for me as a gift so that I wouldn't have to pay retail, either. "Merry Christmas, WK!"

I guess that's not going to happen..... A fellow can wish, though. If anyone is looking for a Christmas present for me, look no further! :lurk:

You could probably get away with just smoking a CDL with your pinkie out and you'd have the same experience. Get some white out and put a little dot on the stem.. nobody would even know.

Definitely different.
I like it enough to pay $150.
No way at 5 bills.

it's awfully heavy for what it is at 50+g, I suppose that comes from the cob-like bowl having to have thick walls. That's like bent pipe heavy.
I kind of expected it to be in the 30g range not having a shank and all. Honestly I don't understand why this pipe isn't in the 30g range. I would think all stem and a 50g bowl would make for an unwieldy pipe.

Good eye - I would expect more in the 30 g range too.
