    Got these pipes from my grandfather today, they're all 45-50 years old.



    This one is stamped "PUFFS", "Imported Briar" I couldn't find anything about it on pipephil.



    I can't quite read it, but I believe it says Adonts, with TOKYO MADE underneath. Also nothing on Pipephil.



    Stamped Sparkproof, with Waterproof underneath. On the opposite side, it has Algerian Briar, Made in France stamped.



    Stamped: Suffolk, Algerian Briar underneath. This one has never been smoked, I couldn't find anything on pipephil.

    I got all these from my grandfather, he stopped smoking pipes at his wifes request for his health many many years ago.

    Found Sparkproof was made by Mastercraft.

    The other 2 are a mystery but also very cool.

    Also, check out Hurricane on the attached page.

    COOL, thanks for the pictures. I got my Grandfathers pipes back after 50 years.

    I've never seen one like the Sparkproof. That's a great feature!

    I hope your grandkids are as happy to get those pipes as you are.

    Thats awesome you were able to get his pipes.

    As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

    The hurricane design (swivel top) is very cool, best windcap ever!
