Butz Choquin Origine Unie - Bone?
I recently purchased an old mid-to-late 1970s Butz Choquin Origine Unie. I know that they used to use albatross bone for the extension and have changed over to acrylic now. Does anyone know when the change occurred and/or how to test the material in a non-destructive manner?
Excuse me, if I mess up this picture thing (again)
Edit: Fixed your picture. Good try. It was nearly right. You don't need to use the "IMG" button above the reply box if you copy the "img" code from photobucket. Just paste that directly into the Reply Box. L.
Click the photobucket link labled IMG and then paste it in your post
As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper
Cigarettes are an addiction, cigars are a hobby, pipes are a religion
That looks like the real deal to me, I saw a unsmoked one in a antique store today, it had the bone extension and the mouthpiece was made of horn (very crudely made compared to yours)
