The slight curve in the mouthpiece offer a little more balance and the ability to smoke hands free a little easier. The standard, fishtail bit offers the smokers a slightly soft mouthpiece which can take a little chewing. Made in the UK with the model number ANA.
The falcon system has been popular since its creation back in the in 1936, the revolutionary system, which has been very popular ever since. The Aluminium body helps to condense the smoke, keeping the smoke cool and smooth. While a moisture trap under the bowl known as the “Humidome”, keeps the tobacco try and removes the bitterness towards the end of the smoke. The use of interchangeable briar bowls, allows the smoker to still have all the burning and flavour qualities of briar.
The added beauty of the interchangeable bowls, allows the smoker to a cheaper and less bulky solution to carrying multiple pipes for the day.

When I first tried a pipe at the tender age of eighteen or so, a Falcon lookalike was the one I bought. Then I found Falcon itself and I now have four of them plus six bowls in total. For me they are a great working pipe, simple in looks and composition but fantastic to smoke. They take any number of knocks and are robust enough to withstand the odd drop or two as well. Easy to clean.
The curved stem was one that I ordered recently from GQ and it has been wonderful. Just the right balance in the mouth and lightweight so I can get in with doing things whilst puffing contentedly away. With, for example, a Hunter bowl screwed in, the smoke is perfect, draws freely and tastes lovely.
If you haven't tried a Falcon, give it a go. Recommended.
