Last night a long time friend called me wanting to get together to just chat, hang out, and share some smokes and drinks.

My friend's grandfather passed away before he and I met, and his grandmother has recently been moved into an assisted living facility, so he and his siblings have been helping their Mom clean out grandma & grandpa's house. Being a cigar smoker and occasional pipe smoker he ended up taking his grandfather's pipe rack along with all 8 pipes on it - and brought them with him last night to our meeting just b/c he knew I'd be interested in seeing them.

Of the 8 pipes on the rack were 2 Kaywoodies, 2 Grabows, a leather wrapped Colossus, a couple of no-name random pipes.

All but one of them were obviously heavily smoked, rarely cleaned, and a little nasty.

There were two pipes which stuck out to me as odd-balls, which I snapped photos of to share with you guys.

First, the "big dipper". The bowl on this pipe was just a little bigger than a golf ball. Yes, that is electrical tape.

The second odd ball, was the only unsmoked pipe on the rack...

I'm almost 100% sure that it is made of concrete. It's small, I could barely get my pinky finger in the bowl.

We couldn't figure out any way to get the stem off without breaking it.

I thought they were odd... Maybe someone has seen one like them before?

Interesting Eli, thanks for sharing. The only thing more useful than electrical tape, is duct tape. geek

That's officially the first concrete pipe I've ever seen. If you had one of those that was of any real size, you'd chomp'ers like this to clench:

The cannon ball pipe is nicely unique. Does the draft hole come out on the side of the chamber?

It would be nice to see if a "pipe engineer" could make this design smoke properly.

Without duct tape and barbed wire, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas would blow off the map Razz

Interesting. May my pipes never need tape. Laughing

Cool
