Icebreaker.

*Edit* Looked it up... What I was thinking of was a "Bulbous Bow," not an icebreaker.

I like where you're going with this. Maybe it could be called the keel shape.

It's an elbow pipe modeled after a style that was popular with several Indian tribes.
I do believe you are right, brother Fainn. Their pipes did look like that.

Keel Billiard shaped pipe. I like this one very much.

If I were selling it, I would refer to it as a "Quaint" or "Quaint Billiard". Quaint is the term Dunhill uses for a traditional (-ish) shape that is not the same as in their catalog.

I would call it a billiard variant. I wouldn't worry too much about settling on a particular specific name since it's so ugly a pipe and design that it's unlikely to catch on to any extent warranting it's own shape designation.
