Oh my, those are quite nice looking.
Here is the interesting part for me. I thought the whole deal with the falcon was to have one pipe with numerous bowls. What I seem to be discovering is, it remains multiple pipes, with a twist; multiple pipes with even more bowls. The combinations multiply! More fun acquisition ahead.

I am about ten bowls into the new Falcon. Very interesting. I get the coolness. I get the dryness. I like the lack of gurgling. I am getting new flavors out of the tobaccos I'm running through it. I am a fan. The smokes tend to be quicker, maybe I just need a bigger bowl. I’m sure I’m still smoking it too briskly though and I am really trying to smoke it just enough to keep it from going out.

I also wonder if practicing on the falcon will give me a reference for trying to smoke a briar in such a fashion to get a similar coolness and dryness.

Very interesting.

@Langridor, you can go to GQ Tobaccos website and under Falcon bowls he list all the dimensions for each bowl shape.

Very true.
I have 3 complete Falcons.
3 bowls and 3 stems.
One stem and 3 bowls would have been more financially sensible.
