Shaka Pipe was inspired by the classic brass all-in-one pipe, which is arguably the most popular smoking pipe of all time. I was making leather cases for them and giving them out along with a pipe inside as gifts to my puffing friends. However, one day, I couldn't source any of the old school brass pipes anymore. I tried a couple of knock-offs, but the quality was terrible. With a Tormach 1100 we had at our motorcycle parts shop, I started to make my own and tried to address a few inconveniences of the original pipe. After a dozen prototypes, the "Shaka Pipe" was born. Here is a comparison between the old school brass pipe and the Shaka Pipe.
