Hi All,
So I paid a visit to my B&M today. And found they have an Orlik Deluxe L220. It's a small nose warmer, and It's appealing and on sale for around 35$.. So does anyone knows about them and how do they smoke?

Deluxes are the highest grade Orlik's,but for $35, the price right. I had a Deluxe, the stems are pre-molded and a bit plasticky in mouth-feel, but no issues beyond that.

I mean to say NOT the highest grade, the lower end of the Orlik system, but decent. The stem is like a Comoys Everyman, Guidall,etc, not bad. Mike Lankton, aka Cake & Dottle, has the best Orlik page on the web:

In a 1960ties from the Danish Orlik agents catalog this shape was called "Gentlemen`s pipe "

The grades were : St.grain,Old Bond Street & Supreme all with hand cut stems,Corona,De Luxe,Captain Black

all with moulded stems which I always found being of good quality.Made by Silvertown Rubber Co, I think.

Orlik called them flat grib mouthpieces.
