This Prospector Pipe, carved by MacQueen Pipes of Canada, is formed from Ash wood and is ready for blowing smoke rings on still summer days. It has been finished with techniques inspired from Medieval wood finishing techniques and multiple layers of stains. Together, these give this pipe a hewn and rustic appearance, accentuating its handcrafted folk character. The interior of the bowl is pre-carbonized to protect the wood.

The long-stemmed Churchwarden Pipe allegedly derives its name from the watchmen who looked after Churches in the nighttime hours (the doors to many Churches were traditionally open at all hours). For his long, solitary vigil, it was considered untoward for the Churchwarden to go all night without a smoke! The long stem of the Churchwarden keeps the embers in bowl and its smoke away from the face of its smoker, keeping his vision clear for observation. This style of pipe is called a ‘’Lesepfeife’’ (reading pipe) in Germany because they allow the reader to smoke without obstructing his book.

Whatever the reason for the long stem of the Churchwarden Pipe, it cannot be denied that the Churchwarden gives a ‘’cool’’ smoke as the smoke must travel a longer distance from the bowl to stem mouthpiece. These pipes were a regular feature in taverns of elder centuries and often were rented out to patrons for a smoke.
