I’m a big fan of the Falcon and it’s contemporaries (Viking, Kaywoodie Aluminum, et al). Mixing and matching different stems and bowls is just good, clean fun, they smoke well, and I have a deep sentimental attachment to them (they were my grandpa’s go-to).

I own a Kirsten, but have never smoked it because... I don’t really know why. They are a little ugly.

I’ve never smoked a Wiebe or any other radiator style pipe.

It looks like progress for the sake of progress which is rarely a good thing. That line of thinking is what gave us Windows 8....

Production pipe making seems to only involve mid-century machinery, no expensive CNC stuff. The difficulty with this approach is that the foot of the stummel must be shaped by a skilled craftsman. Nording's new pipe could be made by a worker with very little skill.

And no, I don't like it.

I think they may run afoul of the antis for their marketing and bright colors that obviously targets preschoolers.
