Falcon Classic (Large) Istanbul Pipe Bowl
The Falcon Classic Istanbul is the big sister to the standard Genoa falcon bowl. Great for aromatic and latakia blends thanks to its wider chamber making for easy combustion. The Classic Istanbul falcon pipe bowl is more strawberry shaped and very tactile in the hand.
The Falcon standard pipe bowls are usually stained a deep brown but in our experience the staining can vary, producing a hints of maroon. All Falcon pipe bowls come non-carbonised.
The bowl is the heart of a good pipe and only the finest Mediterranean briar and Turkish meerschaum is used for all Falcon Bowls. The Unique 4-Start thread on a bowl enables it to be removed from the stem with a quarter turn.
The Falcon Classic Istanbul pipe bowl is available in smooth or rustic (optional meerschaum lining).
Remember, all falcon bowls are interchangeable with all falcon stems.

American engineer Mr Kenly Bugg, of Fort Wayne, Indiana invents the Falcon Pipe, with its aluminum stem and interchangeable briar bowls. He bases the system on the principle that causes rain to drop from a cloud when it is met by cool air. To achieve this result, Mr Bugg uses aluminum for its lightness and, more importantly, for its quick dispersal of heat. In this manner coolness is obtained. The briar bowl, designed with a four-start thread connected to the aluminum stem, forms a trap in which the 'Humidome' acts as a condenser. This ensures that all the moisture is trapped, thereby leaving the tobacco free from saturation and preventing 'goo' from reaching the mouth of the smoker.
Falcon introduces an entirely new concept to pipe smoking in 1977, the Falcon International Filter Pipe, with detachable mouthpiece for optional filter use.
