Have any of you ever seen one, used one or even heard of a nylon pipe? I received this along with a pack of SP Vanilla Cavendish & a Pipe Nail in a sampler pack from P&C. About two weeks after I received it P&C asked me to write a review which I did. The last time I checked they had not published it which has me wondering if they didn't care for my saying that every time I used it I felt like I was going to get a mouthful of plastic smoke :facepalm: I think I've smoked two bowls through it.

I have never seen, heard of or smoked one. I don't think that I would, honestly. I'd be afraid of the plastic as well. Definitely interesting though

I'd try it! But it's not overly endowed with good looks, is it? There's a Swedish pipe, who's name escapes me at the moment, that's similar and has been available for quite some time. Nording has two lines along the same lines too. I'm happy with what I have, but I am sure that someone, somewhere, swears by their plastic pipe...more power to 'em.

Nording actually has a couple pipes that have nylon bodies:
The Eriksen series:

And the Shorty line, which also uses a porcelain bowl(I want to get one, so I can say I own a toilet pipe):

I actually do own a toilet pipe, though it didn't come with porcelain. It came in a lot I bought several years ago. I guess the seller thought they were adding value to the lot by tossing it in. Anywhoo, if I come across it again I'll post a pic.

I can't make out the stamp on the shank end....What is the brand name of this weird pipe? It also looks the like shank and stem is all one single piece of the same material. It also looks like a Falcon where the elegant (sarcasm) Dr. Grabow-like rusticated bowl can be twisted off, just like a Falcon.

I like it.
