    A good deal of the shape of the pipes are pure aesthetics, but some types are supposedly 'better' for certain types of tobacco. The chamber geometry, the diameter of the draw hole, and the length of the pipe are all going to affect the temp/rate burn on the tobacco and the smoke itself. I won't even claim to be an expert here, so you can check this page out for more info:

    In the end, it all comes down to personal preference, so I won't even try to suggest what you should use for any type of pipe tobacco. Plus, I'm not really very well informed on the differences anyway. :-/

    I've always preferred a steeply curved pipe such as the "egg". I like to smoke hands free while I do stuff.

    I love my churchwarden pipe!

    I prefer a bent stem at any rate, nothing worse than accidentally sucking up some pipe juice....

  • Hello there! I did alot of research about crafting a pipe and decided to make one for my own, I am very pleased with it. You can go to my blog ( cigstars.net ), it has lots of reviews on different pipes.

    Admin edit: no links until you have at least 10 quality posts.

    Another chart. Why do the Billiard, Brandy, and Pot look so similar here?

    Cuz those upper class desk job people who smoke straight pipes like to make the distinction between very similar things so they feel smart.
