Tobacciana

A tobacco pipe, often called simply a pipe, is a device specifically made to smoke tobacco. It comprises a chamber (the bowl) for the tobacco from which a thin hollow stem (shank) emerges, ending in a mouthpiece (the bit). Pipes can range from very simple machine-made briar models to highly prized hand-made artisanal implements made by renowned pipemakers, which are often very expensive collector's items. Pipe smoking is the oldest known traditional form of tobacco smoking.

The broad anatomy of a pipe typically comprises mainly the bowl and the stem. The bowl, which is the cup-like outer shell, the part hand-held while packing, holding and smoking a pipe, is also the part "knocked" top-down to loosen and release impacted spent tobacco. On being sucked, the general stem delivers the smoke from the bowl to the user's mouth.

Inside the bowl is an inner chamber space holding tobacco pressed into it. This draught hole, is for air flow where air has travelled through the tobacco in the chamber, taking the smoke with it, up the shank. At the end of the shank, the pipe's mortise and tenon join is an air-tight, simple connection of two detachable parts where the mortise is a hole met by the tenon, a tight-fitting "tongue" at the start of the stem. Known as the bore, the inner shaft of this second section stays uniform throughout while the outer stem tapers down to the mouthpiece or bit held in the smoker's teeth, and finally ends in the "lip", attenuated for comfort.
