Picked up these 2 sets last week on ebay. Sellers photo's were just ok and the description said used because he was unsure if they had been smoked. I took a chance as it appeared to be worth the risk at the BIN price. Both sets are unsmoked and my have never come out of their original boxes. I am guessing late 60s / early 70s? They have 3 hole stingers.

Good ebay eye and grab! Those Flame Grain sets are really nice, and to find an unsmoked set, amazing.

didimauw…Have not decided on smoking? Honestly, I am not a fan of the stinger…I love kaywoodies but have always focused my purchases on push stem kaywoodies. However, I have have only smoked estate Kaywoodies with stingers so unsmoked might be a different experience. If I smoke I will try the Flame Grains…don't see to many matched grain sets so I might hang on to those unsmoked.

Very nice find.

I got a used Kaywoodie SuperGrain for $9 off ebay and am happy with it.

I would love to smoke those newbies but can understand preserving them since you have others.

Just beautiful! I had a brace of Kaywoodies 40 years ago but never liked the stingers.

I have been staying away from ebay. Had I seen them before you did I would have been all over that. Great deal!!!!
