American Estates: Wally Frank Nofalt Gadget with Silver Band

Product Number: 004-009-6192

Definitely one of the strangest gadget pipes I've ever seen, here. Finding a solution to a problem that was already solved, this Nofalt tosses the stodgy old concept of the wind-cap out the window in favor of something much more complex to create and confusing to operate. Note the seam running vertically just forward of the transition: from that point the bowl, including the chamber, swivels. The vents above the transition provide, well, ventilation. The draft-hole runs through a metal tube - which doubles as the forward section of the bowl's pivot. And the tobacco chamber? It's horizontal.
