Perhaps I should have described them better. They are about 3 feet tall and 6" diameter at the bottom. (Damn big honey dippers). Very un-wieldly for a war club. No bowl for a pipe. (Surely you could kill a gopher with it.) I never thought about it, but could probably stir my mash with them. I made 1 in the shape and appearance of a butter churn, complete with metal bands around the "barrel". Lady up the street thought they were toilet paper holders so she bought it for that purpose. So I guess sawdustfactory is 1/2 right. The bottoms are hollowed out as much as I could get them. Filled with sand (4-5 lbs) and non-slip rubber on the bottom. Used by folks like me that can't bend well.
bgettel got the first right answer.
