This thing is worth its weight in gold because it works, it's cheap, it holds like glue, it's multi-functional (for resting long cigars - though not the lit part!), and it saves pipes from ALL KINDS of dings. I recommend using it in a bigger ashtray, but it doesn't require a completely flat base. I put it in one of my wide bowl ashtrays, and it holds perfectly despite the slight curve. I wouldn't recommend it for a deep bowl however; too tough to reach in all the time anyways despite the knocker likely not holding as well. Overall, this thing is the perfect (I daresay necessary) addition to any hard-working ashtray for the avid pipe smoker.

Great cork knocker. Stuck it to the center of my favorite ashtray and it has not came off. You can even pick up the ashtray by the cork knocker and it still won't come off. And it is a heavy ashtray. Very happy.
