Was trying to show the twin bore system but same pic came up sorry the old cajun
Oh yah. It was Radice! Nice pipe!
Is that a hawkbill and if so how deep is the chamber. I like a usually like deep chamber and have been looking at an estate hawkbill online but not having it in hand an worried about the size, as the one I am looking at is about 1.5" deep.
It wasn"t advertised as a Hawk bill just as a Artisan pipe , width of chamber is approx 7/8 of an inch and depth is 1.5, a strong #4 Dunhill size, if yours is the same I believe you will be happy with it The old cajun
Thats a great looking pipe... I assume she smokes like a dream?
Woowowow! That's a nice looking pipe indeed!
Here it is Roth. The old cajun
Thanks Bradley. My guess was the pipe was an estate Radice. Gigi introduced Radice's "new and improved" a few decades ago, IIRC. Here's some info on these, if interested:
"The idea was first generated in response to pipe smokers who have delicate palates or who suffer from the dreaded tongue bite. Traditional twin bore mouthpieces offered some relief in this area, but were extremely difficult to clean in that each of the twin bores came in at a 45 degree angle from the end of the lip making it almost impossible to run a pipe cleaner through either channel. So... the traditional twin bore came and went.
"RADICE devised a method where each of the twin bore channels runs parallel to the other from the end of the lip and connects mid-way down the mouthpiece. In this way the smoke is cooled considerably as it mixes with air in both parallel channels, the pipe draws much more freely, and the pipe smoker can clean his pipe as easily as a standard pipe.* Thus he derives the following benefits in that the Radice twin bore:
1) Helps to alleviate the unpleasant symptoms associated with a delicate palate, and to eliminate tongue bite for the smoker who uses Virginia blends or aromatics;
2) Allows the smoker to puff more easily;
3) Makes allowance for uneven packing of the pipe.
"The result is a more pleasant smoking experience.
* For those of you that have purchased a Radice twin bore pipe with the clear acrylic mouthpiece, please adhere to the following cleaning procedures in order to insure that the blackened center channels remain such:
Allow the pipe to cool for 5 minutes before cleaning
Use only regular fluffy pipe cleaners- not extra wide or bristle cleaners" -- R.D. Field
