This set contains everything for a travelling gentleman’s smoking needs in the early 1800s. It includes a large meerschaum pipe bowl (meerschaum is a clay like material), a choice of three stems and seven mouthpieces, one tinder pouch with steel flint attached (to light the pipe), one ivory tamper in the shape of a finger (to pack tobacco into the pipe bowl), and one long slender bristle brush for cleaning the pipe.
The gentleman smoker came to the fore during the 1800s. In a time before the mass production of cheap cigarettes, pipe smoking was the preferred method and among wealthier gentlemen it became a serious hobby. Aside from the numerous varieties and mixtures of tobacco and the many pipe related accessories, there was a large range of books and periodicals devoted to the habit.

The present instagram page is inspired by the PhD dissertation on "large-scale motions in turbulent pipe flow".
Since it is only founded based on numerical simulation, we try to find pipes in the real world in order to be familiar with the concept and to motivate the significance of the research.
