This "Flame" is just that--a little flicker of radiance. A pocket pipe in every sense of the word, it is there when you need it most. It also bears the utility you need with its easy to disassemble and clean, sterling silver military mount. But Butz-Choquin wasn't alluding to the pipe's convenience in scale when they named this beauty a "Flame"; just take a look at the glorious rays of grain descending 360-degrees around the bowl and all upon the shank. The great American writer and humorist Mark Twain once said "Words are only painted fire; a look is the fire itself." I dare say it holds true in this instance.
