The Falcon Pipe
The Falcon pipe features a metal stem onto which removable briar bowls are screwed. The Falcon gives a very cool and dry smoke due to its metal construction. When smoked the smoke is drawn through a hole in the bottom of the bowl into the metal humidome below where moisture collects, drying the smoke. The smoke is then cooled as it passes through the metal stem. Because the bowls are removable they can be unscrewed during smoking to shake out any moisture in the humidome and then screwed back on to continue smoking.
The Falcon, being mostly metal is also easy to clean. The bowl is removed and cleaned like any other briar pipe; the humidome can just be swabbed out with an alcohol soaked cloth and the stem can be cleaned with a pipe cleaner like any other pipe.
