The spirit of innovation and pipes that smoke tobacco have gone hand in hand all the way back to when people first began putting tobacco in pipes to smoke. From your classic English Billiard, to the calabash, to metal pipes, cavaliers, torpedoes and dozens of other pipe designs, seems like we're always searching for that perfect pipe design; a combination of materials and engineering in a pipe that smokes superior to all others. After years of playing with the idea, Rolando Negoita may have found the answer to the perfect smoking pipe in this 'Conducta'. Literally shaped like a pipe, the wide shank is quite broad and hollow, allowing moisture from the combustion of tobacco to collect as if in a well. The shank can be cleaned via a screw cap decorated in red palm at the back of the pipe (think cavalier design). Brilliant!
