Since 1993 ZONG! has been making kink necked waterpipes on the west coast. They have branched out into making most shapes and sizes of pipes, spoons, bubblers, etc. but their original famous design is a waterpipe with several kinks in the neck. The kinks, aside from looking great, allow for you to build up a large toke before any smoke hits your throat as well as keeping all the water from spilling out should the piece be tipped over.
