    As an infrequent but recurring pipe smoker I would think "Yes".

    You need to hold it by the stem, taste is like smoking through a metal pipe hawk

    OR you could blow bubbles out of them with a soap-and-water mixture, since apparently most if not all of the ones found were novelty toys for children, not for tobacco. ;)

    Some Asians think that certain species of antler dust will put "lead in your pencil". ;)

    And rhino horn, which is a major reason for us almost being out of rhinos. :(

    Antler pipes if properly drilled from a quality unpithy antler section make excellent pipes. Takes a little seasoning at first but wears in nicely & last a long time. Go light on scrapping em out for sure.

    Has anyone made a pipe tomahawk from a lathing (roofing) hatchet/hammer?

    I agree. A good mixture of hardwood charcoal ( no petrol) and molasses before the 1st bowl will seal and sweeten the bowl. If you ever start getting an off taste, reapply
