About this Product

Product SKU: HP29

You may have heard the word Calabash in a few different places. In addition to being a quaint town on the southern coast of North Carolina with iconic seafood, Calabash is also a type of gourd. And that gourd, believe it or not, has been a staple of tobacco pipe craftsmanship for centuries. 

A calabash pipe is instantly recognizable. Both Sherlock Holmes and likely your Great Grandpa puffed on those bad boys all day long. Maybe your Great Grandpa IS Sherlock Holmes. 

Regardless, genuine calabash pipes became very iconic (and very expensive), crafted in part using the eponymous calabash gourd. 

This Pulsar Mini Calabash Hand Pipe takes that same design and repurposes it into a much cheaper and more convenient herbal equivalent for all to enjoy. 

At 4" inches, this mini Sherlock pipe is the perfect size for portability without sacrificing a deep and plentiful bowl.

How It's Made
Glass Spoon Pipes

Despite their straightforward nature, making hand pipes requires a large amount of training and experience. Glass artists start with a tube about four inches long and decorate it with a variety of techniques such as fuming, linework, etc. Next the artist starts to create the shape of the pipe by stretching the neck and forming the mouthpiece. The artist then carefully blows into the end of the tube to expand the glass and shape the bowl. They then push the bowl and pop the carb before placing it in the kiln to finish!
