I use bongs, but I've had an antler pipe for years. I usually lose them too quickly

I used to have a 8 person hooka, it held an oz. if you wanted. the most interesting pipe I smoked out of was when I was in high school a buddy rigged a giant bowl on a brand new vacum cleaner and poured a whole oz. in there turned it on and lit it, man you couldn't see any one if they 2 inches in front of you. we did this in his parents bathroom.

bowls are easy to make out of anything, if you want something discreet, try making one out of a marker and the metal off a pen. You can put the lid on and no one can tell what it is,

you guys wanna see some kickass pipes and bongs? well, here are some pics of my trip to A'dam. I went to the sweetleaf glass pipe workshop where they make very unique and pricy pipes, but they are true works of art. The dragon on the first pic is 12" long ;) a pipe of 720€ is about 1000 dollars :D. One of the glassblowers even gave me a demonstration how he makes a pipe in venetian style ( like the pipes on the second picture), but if i have to post these pics it will get a bit long, i even can't post my whole tripreport cause it's too long.

Wicked pipes.

Years ago i knew a girl who had a glass pipe that was ahaped like a cock & balls, life size.
The bowl was the balls, and you had to suck on the head to get a hit.
I passed.

you see those allot in holland, just like a skull-pipe and stuff, but i don't like those kind of pipes, i don't like ceramic pipes at all, only glass, wood, bamboo or metal.

Imo, glass & ceramic are best for bowls, being inert.

There was a brand of tobacco pipes back in the 60's called The Pipe, and the bowl was lined with a ceramic material that was used on the nose cone of rockets to prevent them from burning up.
Wood bowls are good IF they have been properly cured & prepared.
Worst are alum. and tin foil bowls. They produce toxic fumes when heated. I dislike any type of metal bowl since they get too hot.

I once found a HUGE burl of Manzanita wood. The burl is where the trunk meet the roots, just underground.
Most of these burls are full of cracks and are good for little besides firewood. But this burl was from a tree that had been buried who knows how many years earlier by a mudslide. That allowed it to dry out very slowly, preventing cracks.
Manzanita is a very dense wood (like briar, which most tobacco pipes are made from). It also has a very beautiful grain and color.
I turned this over to a friend of mine who is a master carver. $300.00 worth of saw blades later, he presented me with: 15 small dope pipes, 2 matched tobacco pipes, and a nearly 2' long "peace pipe", in 2 sections.
The dope pipes were real works of art and I wish I had pics. Some were shaped like a coffin, some like snakes, one was like a sort of revolver with 6 one-hit bowls that rotated, another had 2 bowls and a slide where you could choose either bowl or both at the same time.

I have one for sure, poss. another one packed away.
My fave, a carved rattlesnake that looked like a regular wood carving, was stolen a few years ago.
