Thanks to our ever so SMOKEY Banjo, watching him enjoying his Kirsten so much I finally made a deal for one I like. It will be shipped on the 14th of this month. Eventually want to get a Don Warren large Morta bowl.
When using just the long bent stem without the ram rod basically the pipe is a reverse Calabash. Smokes much cooler I've been told. Looks outrageous with the mirror polishing.
Now looking forward to taking it on its first journey!!

Congratulations! That looks like a beauty, and I love the fact that it has multiple configurations. May it serve you well, sir.

Love the pics Ted. Hope to hear a smoking report soon.

I've yet to get in a Kirsten and intend to do so. Apparently there's a Kirsten B&M in the greater Seattle area, supposedly in the Fremont area, or at least used to be. I get down there every so often so will have to ferret it out. Several of the pics banjo posted renewed my interest.


Cheers,

RR

Here you go, read about the history of Kirsten pipes...

https://pipedia.org/wiki/Kirsten_Pipe_Company

Here is a link to Kirsten pipes. Call first and speak to Stacy. Check the hours of operation. Yup Brewdude, right in Seattle Washington. I own many metal pipes but this is my first Kirsten. Every pipe smoker I know that owns one raves about how well they smoke. With the bent stem just like a reverse Calabash.....much cooler smoke.

PS
WATCH SOME VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE

She's a beauty, Ted. Hope you get much enjoyment out of it.

I've been curious about these metal pipes seeing banjo's posts and after receiving a pm from you about them. I hit eBay and grabbed a couple Kirstens, one used but all cleaned up with new o-rings and one unused. I'm excited to try these out. So thank you again for the insight.

Joe, my pleasure and hope you enjoy. Watch a few videos on YouTube so you understand the principal of the valve in the front of the metal shank. I own many metal pipes, but this is my first Kirsten. I really don't need another pipe, now it's about want....lol. It's the fever thing we spoke about...lol again.
When you want a bigger bowl get yourself a Briar and/or Morta bowl from Don Warren. Real nice guy and a superb craftsman.
Post some pictures once you receive yours.

OW, now that you mentioned nice score I will share with ya'll the cost.... only $89.00 for everything. I was in the right place at the right time. Also the seller and I spoke on the phone. He is in the process of designing his own metal pipes and should be ready for sale soon. Also, 100% made in the USA... directly from Florida. I will keep ya'll updated.
