A tobacco pipeoften called simply a pipeis a device specifically made to smoke tobacco. It comprises a chamber the bowl for the tobacco from which a thin hollow stem shank emerges, ending in a mouthpiece the bit. Pipes can range from very simple machine-made briar models to highly prized hand-made artisanal implements made by renowned pipemakers, which are often very expensive collector's items.
Pipe smoking is the oldest known traditional form of tobacco smoking. Some Native American cultures smoke tobacco in ceremonial pipesand have done Into The Future - Primal Fear - Jaws Of Death since long before the arrival of Europeans. Other American Indian cultures smoke tobacco socially.
Tobacco was introduced to Europe from the Americas in the Mona Lisa Smoking A Pipe - Meme Vivaldi - Mona Lisa Smoking A Pipe century and spread around the world rapidly.
As tobacco was not introduced to the Old Mona Lisa Smoking A Pipe - Meme Vivaldi - Mona Lisa Smoking A Pipe until the 16th century,  the older pipes outside of the Americas Mona Lisa Smoking A Pipe - Meme Vivaldi - Mona Lisa Smoking A Pipe usually used to smoke various other substances, including hashisha rare and expensive substance outside areas of the Middle East, Central Asia and India, where it Ты — Небесное Создание - Бенни Гудмен* - Что Может Сделать Лунный Свет then produced.
A pipe's fundamental function is Mona Lisa Smoking A Pipe - Meme Vivaldi - Mona Lisa Smoking A Pipe provide a relatively safe, manipulable volume in which to incompletely combust a smokable substance. Typically this is accomplished by connecting a refractory 'bowl' to some sort of 'stem' which extends and may also cool the smoke mixture drawn through the combusting organic mass see below.
The broad anatomy of a pipe typically comprises mainly the bowl and the stem. The bowl 1 which is the cup-like outer shell, the part hand-held while packing, holding and smoking a pipe, is also the part "knocked" top-down to loosen and release impacted spent tobacco.
On being sucked, the general stem delivers the smoke from the bowl to the user's mouth. Inside the bowl is an inner chamber 2 space holding tobacco pressed into it. This draught hole 3is for air flow where air has travelled through the tobacco in the chamber, taking the smoke with it, up the shank 4.
At the end of the shank, the pipe's mortise 5 and tenon 6 join is an air-tight, simple connection of two detachable parts where the mortise is a hole met by the tenon, a tight-fitting "tongue" at the start of the stem 7.
Known as the bore 10the inner shaft of this second section stays uniform throughout while the outer stem tapers down to the mouthpiece or bit 8 held in the smoker's teeth, and finally ends in the "lip" 9attenuated for comfort.
The bowls of tobacco pipes are commonly made of briar wood, meerschaumcorncobpear-wood, rose-wood or clay. Less common are other dense-grained woods such as cherryolivemaplemesquiteoakand bog-wood.
Minerals such as catlinite and soapstone have also been used. Pipe bowls are sometimes decorated by carving, and moulded clay pipes often had simple decoration in the mould. Unusual, but still noteworthy pipe materials include gourds, as in the famous calabash pipe, and pyrolytic graphite.
Metal and glass are uncommon materials for tobacco pipes, but are common for pipes intended for other substancessuch as cannabis. The stem needs a long channel of constant position and diameter running through it for a proper draw, although filter pipes have varying diameters and can be successfully smoked even without filters or adapters. Because it is molded rather than carved, clay may make up the entire pipe or just the bowl, but most other materials have stems made separately and detachable.
Stems and bits of tobacco pipes are usually made of moldable materials like EboniteLuciteBakeliteand soft plastic. Less common are stems made of reedsbambooor hollowed out pieces of wood. Expensive pipes once had stems made of amberthough this is rare now. Calabash gourds usually with meerschaum or porcelain bowls set inside them have long made prized pipes, but they are labour-intensive and, today, quite expensive.
Because of this expense, pipes with bodies made of wood usually mahogany instead of gourd, but with the same classic shape, are sold as calabashes. Both wood and gourd pipes are functionally the same with the important exception that the dried gourd, usually being noticeably lighter, sits more comfortably in the mouth. They consist of a downward curve Bad Girl - Various - Commercial Collection 331 ends with an upcurve where the bowl sits.
Beneath the bowl is an air chamber which serves to cool, dry, and mellow the smoke. There are also briar pipes being sold as calabashes. These typically do not have an air chamber and are so named only because of their external shape. A calabash pipe is rather large and easy to recognize as a pipe when used on a stage in dramatic productions. Although a British newspaper cartoon of the early s depicts the British actor H. Saintsbury as the Great Detective smoking what may be a calabash pipe, its now-stereotypical identification with Sherlock Holmes remains a mystery.
Some commentators have erroneously associated the calabash with William Gillettethe first actor to become universally recognized as the embodiment of the detective.
Gillette actually introduced the curving or bent pipe for use by Holmes, but his pipe was an ornate briar. Gillette chose a bent pipe, more easily clenched in the teeth when delivering lines. While there are promotional stills of Basil Rathbone smoking calabash pipes as Holmes for other projects, most notably his radio show, in his first two outings as Holmes produced by 20th Century-Fox as taking place in the Victorian era, Rathbone smoked an apple-bowled, black briar with a half bend, made by Dunhill, the company known for making the best pipes at that time.
In the next dozen films, the series produced by Universal Studioswith Holmes and Watson updated to the s, Rathbone smokes a much less expensive Peterson half bend with a billiard-shaped bowl. A calabash is introduced in The Spider Woman but Holmes does not smoke it.
In the original chronicles, such as " The Adventure of the Copper Beeches ", Sherlock Holmes is described as smoking a long-stemmed cherrywood but not a churchwarden pipe which he favored "when in a disputatious, rather than a meditative mood. Bowls are made of varying shapes and materials to allow the smoker to try different characteristics or to dedicate particular bowls for particular tobaccos. Bowls are not interchangeable between manufacturers. A hookahghelyanor narghileis a Middle Eastern water pipe that cools the smoke by filtering it through a water chamber.
Often ice, cough-drops, milk, or fruit juice is added to the water. Traditionally, the tobacco is mixed with a sweetener, such as honey or molasses.
Fruit flavors have also become popular. This style of tobacco is smoked in a bowl with foil or a screen metal or glass on top of the bowl. More traditional tobaccos are "tombiek" a dry unflavored tobacco, which the user moistens in water, squeezes out the extra liquid, and places coals directly on top or "jarak" more of a paste of tobacco with fruit to flavor the smoke.
Briar City Of Night = Ciudad De La Noche - Rational Youth - City Of Night = Ciudad De La Noche a particularly well suited wood for pipe making for a number of reasons.
The first and most important characteristic is its natural resistance to fire. The second is its inherent ability to absorb moisture. The burl absorbs water in nature to supply the tree Mona Lisa Smoking A Pipe - Meme Vivaldi - Mona Lisa Smoking A Pipe the dry times and likewise will absorb the moisture that is a byproduct of combustion.
Briar is cut from the root burl of the tree heath Erica arboreawhich Inquisition - Blind Guardian - Tokyo Tales native to the rocky and sandy soils of the Mediterranean region. Briar burls are cut into two types of blocks; ebauchon and plateaux. Ebauchon is taken from the heart of the burl while plateaux is taken from the outer part of the burl.
While both types of blocks can produce pipes of the highest quality, most artisan pipemakers prefer to use plateaux because of their superior graining. Ceramic pipes, made of moulded and then fired claywere used almost universally Freya´s Teachings - Timo Tolkki - Saana Warrior Of Light Pt 1 Europeans between the introduction of tobacco Let It Ride - Bachman-Turner Overdrive - Best Of B.T.O.
(So Far) the 16th century, and the introduction of cheap cigarettes at the end of the nineteenth. The material is not very strong and the early varieties had long thin stems, so they frequently broke, but were cheap to replace.
It has been claimed that this fragility was somewhat intentional as it was utilized by Colonial American tavern keepers, for example, in renting the clay pipes to patrons. When the patron was done smoking the pipe and returned it to the keeper, the end of the stem was simply broken off so as to be ready for the next patron. However, there is no documentary evidence for this practice; it is known that communal pipes used in taverns were cleansed by being heated in an oven on special iron racks.
Forming the pipe involved making them in moulds with the bore created by pushing an oiled wire inside the stem. The preferred material was pipeclay or "tobacco pipe clay", which fires to a white colour and is found in only certain locations. In North America, many clay pipes were historically made from more typical terracotta -coloured clays. According to one British writer inthe French preferred old pipes and the English new, the middle class preferred long stems and the working class preferred short.
Later low-quality clay pipes were made by slip casting in a mould. Higher quality pipes are made in a labour-intensive hand shaping process. Clays burn "hot" in comparison to other types of pipes, so they are often difficult for most pipe-smokers to use. Their proponents claim that, unlike other materials, a well-made clay pipe gives a "pure" smoke with no flavour addition from the pipe bowl.
In addition to aficionados, reproductions of historical clay styles are used by some historical re-enactors. Clay pipes were once very popular in Ireland, where they were called dudeen s. Broken fragments of clay pipe can be useful as dating evidence for archaeologists.
In the s, the American archaeologist J. The size of bowls also increased over time as tobacco became a cheaper commodity, and later pipes tend to be more decorated. The specifically American style of pipes made from corncobs are cheap and effective, even if some regard them as inelegant.
The cobs are first dried for two years. Then they are hollowed out to make a bowl shape. The bowls are Mona Lisa Smoking A Pipe - Meme Vivaldi - Mona Lisa Smoking A Pipe in a plaster -based mixture and varnished or lacquered on the outside.
Shanks made from birch wood are then inserted into the bowls. The first and largest manufacturer of corncob pipes is Missouri Meerschaumlocated in Washington, Missouriin the United States. Corncob pipes remain popular today because they are inexpensive and require no "break-in" period like briar pipes.
It has been used since the 17th century and, with clay pipes, represented the most common medium for pipes before the introduction of briar as the material of choice in the 19th century. The word "meerschaum" means "sea foam" in Germanalluding to its natural white color and its surprisingly low weight.
Meerschaum is a very porous mineral that absorbs elements of the tobacco during the smoking process, and gradually changes color to a golden brown. Old, well-smoked meerschaum pipes are valued by collectors for their distinctive coloring. Meerschaum pipes can either be carved from a block of meerschaum, or made from meerschaum dust collected after carving and mixed with a binder then pressed into a pipe shape. The latter are far less absorbent, color in blotches, and lack the smoking quality of the block carved pipe.
A variety of other materials may also be used for pipes. The Redmanol corporation manufactured pipes with translucent stems in the s and a series of pipes were manufactured and distributed by the Tar Gard later Venturi Corporation of San Francisco from Marketed under names such as "the pipe," "THE SMOKE" and "Venturi," they used materials such as pyrolytic graphitephenolic resinnylonBakelite and other synthetics, allowing for higher temperatures in the bowl, reduced tar, and aesthetic variations of color and style.
Filters can be single- or double-sided. Double-sided filter has both ends ceramic that can withstand hot smoke. Single-sided filter has ceramic end to the bowl and plastic end to the stem. Smoking pipe filters.
