Who has the best price on Falcon bowls?

I'm rather fond of my Falcon pipe. The bowl of mine, however, needs replacing. The threads at the bottom of the bowl are stripped and worn out and will not stay on the stem anymore. This is to be expected as I've had the same bowl for something like fifteen to eighteen years. So then, what purveyors of Falcon pipe accessories would you recommend who have the best price on a new Falcon pipe bowl?

Ebay. I may order a couple of falcons for the birth year pipes.

I bought a pipe and a couple of bowls from James Barber in the UK a few years ago. By the time they removed the VAT from the price they were cheaper than anywhere I could find bowls locally. JB had a significantly larger selection, also, including styles and shapes I could not find anywhere in the States.

Yep, I just bought a chimney bowl. First time I've seen one for a Falcon.

The site said no one under 18 because it contained images of tobacco. Did I miss the memo? When did tobacco become porn?

It does, indeed, contain a substantial amount of pipe porn.

I received it in seven days. The chimney looks pretty badass on a bent Falcon Extra stem.

I know, I know, I'll post a picture when I get home.

I'm ordering a new bowl from here. I'll likely order a Falcon tobacco pouch as well.

I just want to point out that Chris Askwith makes Falcon bowls as well. They're not as cheap (I think $30-60), but they are extremely nice looking.

Those chimneys look dandy. Might have to break down and order one or two myself.

Thanks, fellas!

Feb. 27th, 2005. That was the day the FCTC treaty entered into force. Most of the serious local legislation started about a year later in those countries that ratified the treaty and it has gotten worse since. But that Feb. 27th is really the date we lost the tobacco war. That was it. It is probably the most ratified treaty in history such is the world wide desire to end tobacco use.

Today, minors are prohibited from entering a tobacconist in many of the nations that ratified. Corner stores and other retail outlets where minors are allowed are prohibited from displaying any tobacco product. Tobacco products are completely out of sight. It is treated as worse than porn.
