At one time Kaywoodie made a line of pipes they called Hi-Bowl, and you can see why from the picture. They made 6 different shapes, numbered H3 through H8, and this is #H7. It is the only one of this line I have ever seen. It looks clunky and kind of awkward and has a tooth hole in the bit, but it puts me in mind of that scraggly little Christmas tree Charlie Brown bought because it looked like it needed a home. I felt the same way when I bought this pipe. It cost me about $4, and I think it was well worth it. I've been trying it with pretty much only latakia blends, but I think I need to try some Perique in it. As with most pipes that I've acquired via eBay, it looks a lot better now than it did when I first got it.
