    I received my Dr. Grabow Royalton from Amazon today. If you don't have one, you need to get one before they are all gone. This is beyond a doubt the best $30.00 pipe I ever purchased.


    Large bowl, light weight, lucite stem, smokes like a dream.

    And you heard it here first! I am glad you guys are starting to see that DG does make good smoking pipes beyond that small cheap stuff they sell in drug stores. The Cardinal line is also a nice pipe by DG.

    I have a Starfire that is a great flake pipe:

    As well as a 30 year old Viscount that is well worth the 20 bucks I paid for it:

    I'd really like to get a smooth bulldog like yours to go with the rustic one I have.

    I like that. Might have to invest in one of those myself.

    Heh rigmedic1 I've been singing the praises of this pipe, I just got the same one two days ago and it is a very good pipe, definitely the best Grabow I've owned.

    I agree completely, it's a great pipe, comparable to my Petes and Savs. Who would have guessed?

    OK, I'll give Dr. G another shot. Ordered one. Hopefully it's better than my Omega.

    No, my name is spelled 'Luxury Yacht' but it's actually pronounced 'Throatwobbler Mangrove'.

    I ordered a rustic Royalton when there was a thread saying they were going to stop making them in 2012.
    The very first thing I noticed was no Dr G spade on it. how sad. But it smoked really nice right from the first bowl. Feels great in the hand, perhaps I'll hunt up a smooth one to go with it.

    That's because it bears the HLT shield stamp which is a DG stamp for that line of pipes.

    I gotta get one of those before there is no more.

    I will give up my pipe when they pry my cold dead fingers off of it!

    That HLT Royalton stamp was used on the original Royaltons made back in the 40's-early 50's before Sparta decided to make a Dr. G. Royalton,which didn't come out until sometime in the 80's IIRC. Tom D. tells the story about the stamps used over at the DGCF.
