Today I received two Kirsten metal pipes today. These are an eBay find. The bottom pipe is a model L that was unused, the top with extra bowl is a model M that was used, but all cleaned up. If you can't tell in the picture, which is likely as I'm no photographer, both pipes and bowls are in excellent condition. I'm happy with my new acquisition...now to get smoking.

Joe, hope you enjoy them both. When you have time post your opinion on how they smoke. There is a guy that sells the long bent stem with no ram rod, smokes like a reverse Calabash. Also comes with the piece that screws in between the shank and the bowl, so the bowl can be on a proper angle. Take a look at the pictures I posted under PAD & TAD. If and when your interested I can call him and tell him you will be in touch. He lives in Florida.
Congratulations on your two new acquisitions.... cheers cheers cheers

PS, WATCH A VIDEO ON YOUTUBE EXPLAINING THE PURPOSE OF THE FRONT VALVE

Ted, I saw your post with the bent stem, it's a very nice looking setup. I'm going to get a good feel for these pipes before I go any further, but I will definitely contact you if/when I'm interested in changing it up a bit.

Per your advice, I have watched some videos to get an understanding of the front valve, and what a neat idea that is, I really like it.

Trying my first bowl, I'm amazed at how cool and dry it smokes. I think I'm a fan, time will tell, but I like it.

I'll have to get a few bowls in with some tobacco I know well, then I'll report back with my thoughts.

Cheers guys.

Curious about these. Is there some setup within the metal part that makes this different than a falcon? They look cool!

Rande, my pleasure. This in my opinion is the most informative video about smoking and the principles of a Kirsten pipe. You can always purchase the long bent stem and proper fitting so the bowl can be placed at the proper angle. The Kirsten I ordered from this guy has both stems. With just the bent stem and no push rod the Kirsten smokes like a reverse Calabash. Much cooler smoke!! The seller has been smoking a pipe for over 40 years and the past 20 of them just metal pipes. When your ready I can PM you his phone number.

Below is the link.....

Fight 'N Hampsters,
Watch the video I posted just above and look at the pictures that I posted under PAD & TAD. The Kirsten smokes much cooler then a Falcon or Viking, but I still also love'em. The Kirsten is a radiator type pipe and you do get a cooler smoke. I own other radiator pipes as well and enjoy them all.

Thanks Ted, that was very helpful and informative. I'll have to make it a point to get to the store in Seattle next time I'm down that way and get in one of the models.


Cheers,
