    Continuing my pipe journey along the path of what many call "low end", I've recently put this good ol' Willard pipe into my rotation after doing a bit of refurbishing. For under ten bucks off of eBay this pipe delivers in every important category. It's light, balanced and comfortable to clench so it can be smoked while doing just about anything around the house or driving about on errands. I just put another bowl of Molto Dolce through it and it was sweet! From what I can deduce from a little research this pipe was made sometime in the 1970's.

    The pipe is an instrument of civilization.

    I have a Willard as well, a pipe that my father bought in the early sixties. Same carved design, but its a small billiard.

    I got a Willard Ajusamatic as part of a group I bought on the GoodWill site. Surprisingly good smoker for SG 1792. It's a small bowl but handles that blend well and smokes cool. Enjoy yours.

    Blowin' smoke since 1970.

    Joining in on your "low end" celebration Tuold...My Weber Scoop I restored (ignore the stain on my hands).

    Edit: It smokes great BTW, especially English blends.

    Just goes to show that even if the pipe is 'low end', doesn't mean that it won't smoke well.

    Enjoy your pipes, guys.

    +1 Allan-- If it's drilled right and properly constructed, no reason why it shouldn't give a good smoke. I think there is enough variance in machine-made pipes that a great pipe occasionally slips thru the system!

    I love my Kaywoodie author from one of our sponsors, metal stinger stem mount, akimbo bit and all.
    Love those grooves in the bowl, so 1950s.
