Default Glaskolben for spoon pipe? Possible?

I'm wondering if I could use a Glaskolben to make a spoon pipe. Since the end is already closed and it's already (partially) in the right shape, I thought it might work. Thoughts?

Are Glaskolben COE 33 or something much higher? Don't know that I'd use it if not 33, too much chance of temp shocking.

No, they're too thin and by the time you get them condensed to the right size, you'd be making a pendant, not a pipe, lol.
