Other than Peterson, does anyone else make a briar pipe that includes a well or reservoir for the condensation?

Thanks.

I think the Savinelli "system" pipes have a well. Wellingtons have them. There are probably lots of 'well" pipes out there...

Falcon pipes have a reservoir underneath the bowl. Mine works as advertised.

Cheers

My Falcons indeed have a condensation well under the bowl, and I am often surprised how 'well' they catch moisture... I understand any 'Calabash' style pipe does the same. Other have already been mentioned, and it wouldn't surprise me if there were more!!!

Thanks, Fr_Tom and Tim, for the good suggestions.

When I started googling the Savinelli Dry System, I found one up for auction on ebay.

And the first pipe I ever smoked was a Falcon...I should have remembered that one.

Acme makes beautiful "double chamber" pipes. He's a member here, though I don't think I've seen him around for a long time. Also has a website. The inspiration was the calabash, but I'm sure he explains it well on his site. There's a thread or two talking about double chamber pipes, and he posted in them.

I thought I would add the Kirsten pipes which do a good job catching any moisture. More metal shancked pipes add the Dr Grabow (sp) Viking.

Thanks! Those are some seriously interesting designs! (Somewhat above my "pay grade" unfortunately).

Who is that attractive lady in your avatar?

I noticed that was your 999th post. ONE more for the win!! Thanks.

forsooth, I'm along the lines of thinking that a double chamber pipe, and a pipe with a moisture reservoir are 2 separate designs, although in my experience the double chamber pipe is the superior of the two.

I have noticed after examining the internals of many bent pipes, quite a few of them feature a small moisture reservoir. Not hardly large enough for a filter to fit, but certainly functional in preventing condensation from making it's way back into the bowl. I suppose the nature of bent pipes creating additional condensation, makes a moisture reservoir a very functional part of the design.

Here's a few pics of my Design Berlin Premier bent, that feature's a small reservoir that works well. It is one of my best smoking production pipes, and I really like the fluted art deco styling. It almost looks like an antique pipe, especially so when I leave the silver spigot unpolished.

Ozark, it was shaped like a wooden shoe, so I had to have it in my collection. I also have a few of the collectible Zenith Christmas pipes in my collection in unsmoked condition, but I don't think I have any pics of them handy.

The H Weibe Radiators are similar in function to Falcons but have a much deeper residue chamber. Works very well in the 2 weeks I've had it.
