This is a stem for the Falcon system. The International “classes” up a Falcon and looks great with lighter colored bowls (especially the Hunter series). The International can also take a stem insert filter in addition to a dry ring.
KBV became aware of a design flaw with the current products causing the current product to have plastic edges on the mouthpiece and stem that cause discomfort when smoking.
Using some Team Ventures Partners (Merchant Service Pipes), we offer these hand finished International stems that have had edges along the mouthpiece and stem smoothed down seamlessly.
