Among the members of the Company of Thorin Oakenshield, unique, exquisitely crafted pipes are a source of pride and much prized by their owners.
The pipe of Thorin Oakenshield is sturdy and of Dwarven make, carved in a warm-hued timber and only lightly ornamented with a scaled pattern upon the faces of its faceted bowl. Much like Thorin Oakenshield himself, the pipe is rugged and practical, without fanciful trappings and decoration proclaiming its owner’s royal heritage.
The pipe was created for the film by the artists at the 3 Foot 7 Art Department.
This non-functional prop replica has been created from molds of the original prop used in the film, using the same high impact urethane material as the props on set and finished using the same techniques and materials to achieve the same well-loved look as it has in the film.
The pipe comes with a polystone display stand.
The pipe of Thorin Oakenshield is part of a range of high end authentic prop replicas from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. All created by the artists in the filmmaking community of Wellington, New Zealand.
So far, Weta's range of prop replicas from The Hobbit movies includes:

Yes... I ordered this piece not very sure about urethane props.
I received it and it has change my mind about it.
It is perfect! Colour and weight matches perfectly the wood material it is supossed to be ... only the touch is a little bit cooler than normal wood.
The quality of details and paint job is awesome , I am very gratefully surprised with that point , as I am very exigent regarding painting jobs...
The pipe is really HUGE in size. It is done for an actor with prosthetic hands so it has to be bigger than a pipe for a human or hobbit.
The base is also well done and fits and display the prop securely and with a good presence.
I´ve made a review in the shadow and the flame forum with extra photos.
I recomend totally this purchase as it is an iconic piece of one of the main characters in the movie , and it could be seen in the Misty Mountains song scene.
And of course : it is made with molds of the original prop, so it is the closer to the original prop you can get! Hide.
