A Steamroller is a style of pipe that has both ends open with some sort of an attached combustion chamber (push bowl). Steamrollers have been around for many years, but were popularized recently as a method used by water pipe manufacturers, to recoup a ‘lost’ piece. When the water carrying portion of the vessel cracks, wobbles or otherwise becomes unusable, the lather operator flame cuts the damaged area away from the neck and mouthpiece to save all the fume and decoration work residing on the neck.
