Well, if you're going to work in a non-traditional pipe material, you might as well go for an eccentric pipe shape as well. Nate's certainly done both here, offering up a morta sporting proportions that are equal part Stack and Nosewarmer. With a bowl that is as tall as the shank and stem together are long, this smoker offers a chamber of great depth, and the kid of leverage that makes for a comfortable clench. In the end I'd give the nod to "Stack" over "Nosewarmer", as far as nomenclature goes. The reason is simple: as lofty as this one is, odds are the rim is going to be above
the tip of your nose.
