Check Price

The Churchwarden Tomahawk Pipe from Shire Pipes is a beautifully crafted, traditionally shaped pipe made with smooth polished Cherry wood. It features a singular seamless design, providing a perfect smoking experience. This pipe is a perfect gift for friends or family, packed in an attractive gift box. Crafted from high-quality wood, it is a wonderful addition to any collection of high-quality wooden pipes.

One of the standout features of this pipe is its exceptional craftsmanship. The shaping and execution of the pipe are on par with high-end briar or meerschaum pipes. It smokes exceptionally well and stays cooler than many aged briar pipes. The size of the bowl is good for a 30-45 minute smoke, and the pipe is light and comfortable to hold.

However, there are a few things potential buyers should be aware of. The pipe is not a single piece of wood; it consists of three parts, with the bowl being one piece and the stem being two halves glued together. While this doesn’t affect the smoking experience, it’s important to handle the pipe carefully to avoid damaging the glued areas. Additionally, the pipe is not suitable for smoking weed, and the starter cake coating in the bowl may need to be reamed out for seasoned pipe enthusiasts.

Despite these considerations, the Churchwarden Tomahawk Pipe offers a unique and enjoyable smoking experience. It comes with pipe cleaners, screens, and a 3-in-1 tool, making it a complete package for pipe enthusiasts. The pipe’s draw is smooth, and it has a distinctive appearance, making it a great addition to any collection or a thoughtful gift for fans of Tolkien’s work.

Overall, this pipe is a great choice for those looking for a comfortable, lightweight, and cool-looking smoker. While there are some minor drawbacks such as the thin-walled wood at the tip, the pipe’s quality and aesthetic make it well worth the investment. It’s a solid piece that provides a unique and enjoyable smoking experience, especially for fans of all things Tolkien.
