The loud and boisterous stem ensures that you will not be able to hide this Chacom Maya pipe from anyone within a few feet of you. The 88 model is a zule shaped pipe, a seldom seen shape from French pipe companies. The smooth finish on this briar pipe has been finished with an elaborate chocolate colored stain, the perfect background to accent the tremendous stem.

I'm not one to be a show off, but I have to admit, this pipe gets a second look from everyone when I smoke it. Its unique and beautiful, and smokes very well. Highly recommend, and your price was hands down the best.
The Maya 88 Zulu is a very nice looking pipe, super light in the hand and a large, deep bowl. The brushed finish is very smooth, with the striped stem adding a lovely style.
The forward lean of the bowl adds to a smooth draw, though just a little tight due to the draw hole in the stem being a little small for me, sometimes creating a little unwanted juice mid bowl. Only a tiny bit of over-drilling in the bowl, but that has smoothed out now with substantial breaking in. The pipe gets very hot in the hand, so easy drawing and a cool-smoking leaf is recommended. Overall 3 out of 5, the look attracts positive coments from folks nearby.... A great pipe for the price!
