The kiseru, is the Japanese smoking pipe, which was popularized in the early 17th century. The kiseru is usually made with the mouth piece and bowl being metal, and the shaft made of bamboo or metal, and is thinner in diameter. Because of the metal ends, if the kiseru was made long enough, it could also be used as a weapon, and was carried around by gangsters. Kiseru also are embellished with engraved details to show social class, and status.
