Epipes Epipes Epipes
I love these things, such an unusual combination of old school and new tech. I like vaping, I like things made of wood...wow these are both eh?
A few people have been talking about them outside the normal crowd and I recently looked into some of the newer ones online and just thought, "Hey me, these need a thread to be talked about". So, as I generally do, I listened to myself and here we go
Recently these guys (ok this guy singular) has made a few changes that I think are for the better. I am digging the new battery cover over the old exposed battery look and I hear the button has gotten a little easier to push, his customers love him. The only down side is that the cartomizer diameter can restraining if your got one that uses boge 510's and then decide that you want to go to a ego mega dual coil...well I cringe at the thought of cutting into a $115 dollar wood mod to see if I could get it to fit. Your never gonna get a tank on one of these but that is not really what these are designed for. They take cartomizer's of the traditional size just fine and honestly I find myself on a boge 2.0 ohm more than anything anyway
Price: $115 not sure if the fancy battery cover is extra but its probably worth it

what you want a tank on a pipe?
Epipemods, make a wide...WIDE...variety of pipe shapes, they even have a nice vast collection of pipe stems on their site from cherryvape so you can really go wild with what you want. Its basically an 18350 (which has somehow become the default epipe battery) wood mod with a mechanical button. Solid design in some very artistic pipe. As you can see in the pictures the styles available range from the normal to the bizarre. They look great, and you can put any 510 atty/cartomizer on them you can imagine...though some are going to look more natural than others on them.
Generally they are designed for Ego Mega atty's or Ego mega dual coil cartomizers but absolutely nothing is stopping you from putting an LR 306 on this and vaping it.
Price: 149.99 for the standard pipes custom jobs seem to go up from there...they also have a $300 dollar juice feeder giant pipe they call the dragon and a $70 wooden box semi-pipe (in the first picture)

DSE-601NEW 510 cartomizer pipe
A lot of people liked the looks of the dse-601...yea it has that gaudy crystal in it but you can always fiddle with that on your own. But the atomizer was built in and that means when it breaks you have to go buy a new one. Well no more, now you can have the same look...the same reasonable price in a 510 cartomizer version...kind of...rumors say the cartomizers are proprietary and while you CAN get a boge in there its going to require the use of cart condoms to get a good fit and airflow....still its a decent looking pipe and its cheap...even if you do end up having to buy these specific cartomizers its better than having to buy a new unit every time the atty pops. The battery is replaceable and its an automatic. Which means its the only automatic cartomizer pipe that I know of.

Man I love the look on these things. Really it looks like they stole the epipemods button and just made the atty connection recessed or semi-recessed (depending on the model they have a good range of shapes going on) put a little metal ring near the atty connection and dresses up the magnets on the top so you can't see them. But its a great collection of electronic pipes...assuming, because I have never seen the insides of one, it has a similar body they should also last a long time. What you can tell from the website is they use the Ego Mega Dual Coil the 18350 battery and they don't ship to the united states (maybe they will reply to my email stating otherwise if so I will let you know, I didn't see an option for it when trying to buy one online though)
but really look at this thing
makes me want to renew my passport and hop over to Italy.
Price: Somewhere between 120-220 dollars after converting from Euro's (€90-160 including VAT) not including shipping even if I could find a ship to the states button.

So those are the ones I have been looking at lately there are some others, the mini pipe & the expensive g500 from nhaler come to mind...they are starting to show their age though either in function or forcing you to use only one type of cartomizer.
Anyone have any pictures of their pipe? Or any information they would like to add about the above mentioned...or maybe a great one I missed lets see/hear it.
