AKB Meerschaum: Calabash with Meerschaum Cap (9mm) (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-0838
While AKB offers Calabashes made from actual gourds, they also make available ones like this, which retain the traditional gourd Calabash shape and design (removable meerschaum chamber-cap and all that) but fashioned from wood instead. Aside from being easier to produce (since the wood can be shaped to whatever form is needed, whereas the gourds have to be specially grown) Calabashes like this also have an edge in terms of sturdiness, the main body of the pipe generally having much thicker walls.- Rachel DuBose
