Churchwarden (Pipe)
A pipe shape with a long curved stem also known as a "Yard of Clay." Churchwardens were originally made of clay and were enormously popular in Europe until the introduction of the Briar Pipe. Churchwardens tend to produce a cooler smoke due to the length the smoke has to travel from bowl to mouthpiece.
