A poker pipe is close to a sandwich. Both pipe and sandwich were invented for card players to make the game more comfortable for gentlemen. Of course it would be interesting to look at the pipe for chess players, we suspect it should be something like the Charatan’s pot – our another today’s pipe.
Sandwiches can be with ham, cheese, fish… whatever you can imagine. Poker pipes can be pokers or “cherrywoods”. Some people believe that they are just different names of the same shape. Some others distinguish them by a flat and slanted bottom. And cherrywoods are unstable without tobacco in the bowl.
This nice american poker is also unstable without tobacco in it’s bowl. And that’s right: no sense to put efforts when you’re empty!
The pipe marking is “SANDSTORM \ IMPORTED BRIAR”. The length is 14.0 cm, bowl’s hight is 4.0 cm. External and internal diameters of the bowl are 3.2 cm and 1.9 cm. The depth is 3.3 cm and this pipe weights 25 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter.
