What a beauty this pipe is! I actually own a fumed model exactly like this myself and have to say, I love the design!
It was one of my first pieces. Actually it was the second glass pipe I ever bought, after my beloved glass sherlock broke (due to improper storage).
Being a newb at the time, I wanted something on the simpler side as I was still getting used to glass pipes and didn’t want to break it. I knew I wanted another skerlock pipe, but one that was a bit sturdier for packing and when not in use in general (my old fumed sherlock was the traditional style and did not have marbles to stand on or any kind of stand built in). After holding a few different pieces, I immediately knew this piece fit the bill because of how natural it felt in my hand.
