Another find from the move to new premises. I used to make pipes like this for a customer in London back in the eighties. He didn’t want a pipe with a separate stem, as he kept breaking them, his solution was to have a pipe made in one piece. He still managed to get through them, I imagine the bit at the end became a little soggy from being kept in the mouth. This pipe is provided with a rubber grip, which should prevent this problem. I’d always have a few of these partly made, ready for the customer to have when he needed a new one, and I found a box with one complete pipe ready to go, plus few “in progress”. I may finish those off, if there is enough interest. I think the shape bears a passing resemblance to the pipe smoked by Kevin Costner in the Hatfield and McCoy series.
