This is a chalice pipe. Made from carob and walnut with chrysacolla inlay. It is water tight and the customer said it smokes great, so I’m happy with that! Comments and critiques welcomed. ..

Nice job, I like the mouthpiece. Did you mean to say Chalice? Is this a water pipe? The bowl looks ceramic. Does the pipe come apart for cleaning?

Thanks for posting!

Oops… thanks for catching that typo Bill… yes it is a water pipe. The bowl is also made from walnut. It just has a different finish from the rest of the piece for the purpose of heat and fire… it’s finished with carnauba wax. The bowl is seated in a rubber stopper, and below the bowl, but separate is a brass tube that would run down into the water. Every thing comes apart so it can be cleaned. Thank you for the complement

Thank you jim65, the inside of all of my chalice pipes have several coats of 100% pure tung oil. Each coat is cured before I apply the next… so to seal the inside takes about 2 months! But I use the tung oil because it’s completely natural and very durable. .. it was used centuries ago to seal the bottoms of ships. ...
