Handmade pipes, handmade mouthpieces
In addition to the "shablyuka" (saber) and "ratyshcha" (peak), the Zaporozhye Cossack's "lyul'ka" (pipe) was an essential attribute. The Cossacks' folk "parsuns" (portraits) always depict them with a pipe: on a horseback in a campaign, or sitting with a "kobza" (musical instrument) - and the pipe is always there. In the famous Ukrainian folk song "Oh, the women reap the harvest on the mountain," hetman Petro Sagaidachny is even credited with such words:
"I don't care about a woman,
But the tobacco and the pipe
A Cossack will need in his way..."

Smoking pipe (lyul'ka) is one of the first devices for smoking tobacco. It was smoked 5 thousand years ago, and it was widespread among the aristocracy and military elite in North America, Asia, Africa, South America, and Europe. In Ukraine the lyul'ka appeared in the XVII century, it was popular among Cossacks. The Cossack community, in general, is difficult to imagine without a lyul'ka on the belt - it is like a saber or embroidery. In the XX century, the lyul'ka was replaced by cigarettes and cigars (a variety of pipe for smoking Eastern peoples have hookah, which is more often used for smoking fruit potion).
Nowadays, smoking pipes are considered to be old-fashioned, because why do you need to carry a whole set of pipes with you if you can purchase a pack of cigarettes in any kiosk and quickly satisfy your needs.

The organism (due to the complex structure of the pipe) gets much less smoke, therefore, if you have a pipe instead of a cigarette - the harm to the body will be less;
The smoking pipe allows you to reduce your smoking costs (because it is reusable, you only need to buy tobacco);
After all, smoking a pipe is prestigious and aesthetically pleasing. Pipes are fashionable to use as souvenirs or gifts.
